Dogs’ digestive systems are not the same as humans. They digest food more quickly and their digestive systems are also more acidic which makes it almost impossible for them to get sick from bacteria. However, we do believe that it is important to wash your hands, counters, and dog dishes after feeding. Your dog’s raw food should also be kept frozen until ready to use and thawed in your refrigerator. The same precautions you take when preparing food for your family would apply to your dog’s food as well.
