We hope to change your mind about dog salmonella so you can feed your pooch nutritious raw food (or homemade cooked)!
Want to hear about about preventative measures nobody is talking about? You and your doggy might hear some things about salmonellosis (salmonella) that you haven't heard before.
You won't read about...
...numerous, lengthy pages breaking down dog salmonella scientific data. Also, we'll let someone else discuss all those time consuming clean-up chores you're supposed to do after handling “deadly” raw meat for dogs. I'd quit our raw meat dog food diet if I had to do all that stuff!
Ready for our take on this? Ok... here's why dog Salmonella is such a big issue...
Salmonella thrive in the following conditions...
Chickens free ranging on a few acres of farm land don't make a good host for the salmonella bacteria!...
But not this small, local farm where Nimble's chickens are raised... dog salmonella free...
The more factors causing farm animals to be unhealthy, the greater the chances of the animals harboring salmonella bacteria and other diseases. Disease loves unhealthy hosts, it doesn't like healthy “homes.” For example...
with fleas (not a disease but a good analogy) are usually unhealthy
(their are exceptions). If your dog becomes healthy, those fleas
will go somewhere else. Or, the dog fleas will be kept to a minimum. Click here to learn more about using natural remedies to rid your dog of pests.
Our dogs may be loaded with unwanted internal parasites if they're unhealthy. Instead of loading up your doggy with de-worming medications (drugs), restore your dog's health. Those nasty critters won't hang around...
A few always do... this is normal. Mother nature has a reason. Your dog's body can deal with this. In nature, wild animals have parasites...
But, they are not loaded with them. However... the old, dying animals are!
My past furry friend can tell you all about this. Drug companies don't want you to know this stuff. They'd go broke...
examples apply to your furry pal, you and the “prey animals"
Compare home recovery to...
A lengthy, expensive, drug enhanced recovery program at the dog hospital. This is stressful on your dog, you, and your wallet!
... is more of a risk.
Try this great article some time. It contains some good
information about this nasty dog bacteria.
I feel you need to detect this disease as soon as possible if your pooch was exposed to the “bug.” The sooner, the better!
You need to be aware of these salmonella poisoning symptoms...
Possibly, your dog may not have salmonella if she displays one or more of these salmonella symptoms. Here's more about dog food intolerance symptoms... just tap this link. And...
I'm not one for taking my dog to the vet every time she sneezes! “Good... arf!” Nimble Doggie.
But, if I have an uneasy feeling about something, Nimble and me are first in line at the doggy doctor's office!
Our dogs can't speak our language... they can't tell us if they're feeling under the weather.
I'm not experienced like a vet... I can only tell you to be aware of and recognize salmonella poisoning symptoms. Closely monitor your dog. Don't take chances!
Maybe your doggy just gorged too much. Does she have the squirts? What next? Click here to decide.
After handling raw meat, it's a good idea to wash everything that
came into contact with the meat. I do, but I'm also not a fanatic...
it would drive me nuts! I'd probably give up feeding my pooch her
raw meat dog food diet...
... which is a big part of our dog feeding schedule. Here's more.
Well... ok, there's lot's of times I don't wash my hands. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't.
If your dog has salmonellosis, remember that it can be transferred to you through your dog's saliva or feces. Also, your dog can shed the salmonella bacteria weeks after her illness.
Finally, some canines are asymptomatic... they can carry and transfer the salmonella bacteria without having any ill effects.
Have you noticed this after reading our article? Just about everything we discussed can be applied to humans as well!
Nimble and I can't guarantee you or your dog won't attract this
unfriendly salmonella bacteria. However, chances are, if you and
your meat eating companion(s) are healthy, the “bug” will go looking
for another unhealthy human or doggy to live in.
Healthy animals (your dog and it's food) make an unhappy home for dog salmonella bacteria!
I don't feel Nimble and I are lucky we've never had salmonellosis. Being healthy and having a strong immune system plays a big part. Speaking of healthy...
Remember, this whole article isn't just about meat... include those raw meaty bones too!
