why do vets always say never to this?

how come vets always tell people raw diet is unhealthy for dogs? is it just because they want to make their extra money selling specific brands? i reccomended some one i fairly know that raw diet would be better for their dog a few days later they told no because the vet said the dog would get very ill from this!

well can't you feed dogs cooked food and still be considered raw? Grizz eats raw eggs I used to eat raw egss. I like my meet as rare as I can get it grizz eats raw beef sometimes. That's emwhat our stomach acid is for. You got to excercise your immune system sometimes LOL.

I think its because the general public doesn't know the correct way to feed RAW/BARF diet. Also it may be the breed, I think some people..even vets...still buy into the "raw meat makes them evil" bit. Next time a vet says that...ask him why.

My vet told me it brings the feral nature out in the dog. I laughed at him as I was walking out.

my vet still tries to get me to cook Sydney's food...but I refuse, she admits she knows nothing about raw diets, and she does say that it does seem to be working for Sydney...I also do blood tests yearly just as a heads up to see if anything is off.

that is actually not a true statement. Dogs digestive systems are naturally more acidic then humans and their digestive tract is not as long as a humans so the food is processed before it putrefies (if fed properly)

if trained properly food does not promote begging (unless you feed them from where you eat, but then again I did say properly trained) Do you know where heartworms come from??? Mosquitoes, so that really makes no sense at all.

Are you maybe thinking of tapeworm, which can embed in more places than the digestive tract? It's actually pretty common in ham/pork products, but not so much in beef or chicken.

Not to mention, all an animal has to do is ingest a flea to get tapeworm - tapeworm is very common and very treatable.

i think most vets say not to feed raw because MOST vets know nothing of nutrition beyond basics. Most vets seem to only recommend foods that they are making money off of. Peanuts ex-vet told me to put him on Royal Canin....NO. Another reason he no longer sees that veterinarian.

My rule of thumb - if a vet recommends a dog food which they have random brand name swag for all over the office, they're not doing it for the good of the dog!

i agree.

i used to work at a vet and they pushed so hard on science diet because hills was running a contest for which office sold the most food would win $5000 to do what ever they wanted with....my office won and they took us on a weekend vacation...i wish i knew then what i know now about that food. vets do benefit from selling the foods that are in their office and now i feel that its not just the kick back of prizes its that you are in their office more often. since i changed foods for my dog i havent been to the vet
