Salmonella in DRY pet foods

Extruded under tremendous heat and pressure, dry dog food lacks the beneficial probiotic organisms that exist in fresh foods. Kibble are sort of a smorgasbord or petri dish; a rich, sterile field on which the first organism that happens to contact it after it is produced can flourish where there are no competing "good" organisms.

Now, we have a report of Salmonella outbreaks in humans linked to dry pet foods. Delta, how do you like them apples? Check this out:

The moral of the story? Just say NO to kibble. Fresh is best. Sorry to burst your bubble, Purina and Delta!

  1. I have to give kibble,canned food is expensive for large dogs and sense I lack any butchers within a 100 miles,raw meat is too expensive as well. My animals have been healthy on dry food anyways,and wet food has caused health problems as well.
