These days there is so much talk from the anti-raw pet food lobby. As we know, the conclusions that come out of ‘studies’ and the way they are reported are often dubious to say the least, often with conveniently missed relevant information and even down right false information. Only 27 dogs with symptoms were included in this Melbourne study, and with no detail about their lifestyles and anything else that might have contributed to their condition. It is simply not reasonable to warn the UK population of over 16.5 million dog and cat owners against feeding their dogs raw chicken based on that study. We also have a right to know who funded the study.
