The truth about raw food is that it brings extra risks. Not just to your cat’s health, but for everyone in your household.
Raw food, especially meat, contains bacteria which can make cats and humans sick. Normally any pathogens are killed off during the cooking process. But, with raw food, the risk remains there.
Even with the greatest care taken, the risk of cross-contamination with raw food is much higher. And spreading bacteria such as E.coli and Salmonella throughout your house is particularly dangerous for any young or elderly people around.
