    Default word of caution

    i was not to sure where to post this so decided to post it here ,please move it if needed,as you know i have an allergic dog and have had her tested,also as you know i raw feed her,well shes allergic to chicken so cannot feed it but as i get all her meat from the local butcher i know who is the last person to handle the meat i buy,the thing i dont know is has that person handled chicken before serving me?,i spoke to mark who did annies testing and he reminded me that even if i dont feed chicken ,any meat i buy may have been contaminated with chicken just through touch,so i have been washing all that i feed her ,its a bit of a chore but even a tiny bit of chicken residue will make her itch,shes been doing so well up until this morning,i gave her pork ribs last night as as it was late i forgot to run them under the tap just in case ,this morning her eyes are all goopy and i know shes been up all night itching because she knackered and gone back to sleep after ive cleaned her up,my point is ,after rambling ,is if you are feeding ocassional raw meat,full on raw,or putting topping on kibble and you know your dog is allergic to certain meats then be aware that it could have some meat residue on it that your dog is allergic to,its safer to was it just in case,karen

    Great advice.

    Remember the salmonella outbreaks of a few years ago? (here - not there) Cross contamination was a BIG topic then too. A good reminder for a lot of foods actually.
