AVMA Addresses Raw Food Diets
By Christi McDonald
The American Veterinary Medical Association House of Delegates is meeting August 3 through 7, 2012, in San Diego, Calif. Among the items on the agenda is a proposed policy on the feeding of "raw or undercooked animal-source protein diets" for pets.
The new position statement, drafted by the AVMA Council on Public Health and Regulatory Veterinary Medicine, states, "The AVMA discourages the feeding to cats and dogs of any animal-source protein that has not first been subjected to a process to eliminate pathogens because of the risk of illness to cats and dogs as well as humans."
The proposed policy is based on the fact that studies have shown that raw or undercooked animal protein might be contaminated with pathogenic organisms such as Salmonella, E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus, among others. According to the AVMA, if raw foods are not cooked to a specific temperature prior to feeding, pets may be contaminated with these organisms, which can lead to illness or possibly death. Although animals that have ingested these harmful pathogens may not become ill, they can harbor the microorganisms and transmit them to other animals or humans.
