Raw feeders encouraged to seek a reputable raw food producer

Raw feeders encouraged to seek a reputable raw food producer

Raw feeders are encouraged to seek a reputable raw food producer rather than buying raw meat from the butcher or supermarket.

PFMA is aware of a recent study from the University of Melbourne citing a potential link between feeding raw chicken meat and acute polyradiculoneuritis (APN) in dogs, which is a potentially fatal condition causing paralysis.  The study highlights that Campylobacter found in chicken meat is now considered a trigger for the condition.

PFMA would like to highlight that they have recently published sector guidelines for commercial raw pet food manufacturers to ensure safe products of high quality. Raw feeders should therefore seek a reputable raw pet food producer rather than buying raw meat from the butchers or supermarkets. For more information on responsible raw feeding, please read the PFMA Factsheet.
