A couple readers asked about the risks of cross contamination with a raw diet. I definitely tend to be overly cautious when it comes to food preparation for both my furry and non-furry family. So far, I have found it very easy to keep the food contained during preparation. Ruby's bowls are all stainless steel, which is recommended by Primal and other raw food experts. I usually put the nuggets in her bowl, add water and mix directly over the kitchen sink. This allows for safe simple handling and clean up. Of course, I can only speak for freeze-dried raw, but so far preparation and clean up have been very manageable. As an added safety precaution, I usually rinse her bowls with hot soapy water immediately after she finishes eating. I also keep her food on the top shelf in our pantry away from other foods and out of reach of my daughter.
Keep the questions and comments coming. Tune in next Monday for an update on week three!
