Hygiene Guidelines for Raw Feeding

 

Hygienevoorschriften rauw voer

Raw meat and prey animals contain natural bacteria. For healthy animals these bacteria are harmless. For people, especially young children, elderly and people with a weakened immune system, the bacteria can cause problems. Therefore it is important that raw food products are handled in the right way. 

 

*Store the sealed product  in a freezer at -18°C. When the product comes in contact with air, the product can slowly dry out which reduces its nutritive value.

 

*Thaw it in an air tight container in the refrigerator so it will not be in contact with your own food and dehydration will be prevented.

 

*Do not store the meat product longer than two days in the refrigerator. When a package is too big to feed in two days, you can make portions when the product is still frozen and put it back in the freezer.

 

*Prevent cross-contamination by cleaning everything which has been in contact with the meat product, or the packaging of the meat product, with warm water and detergent or a disinfectant.

 

*The higher the temperature, the faster the bacteria will multiply. Make sure you feed your pet in a cool space, out of the sun.

 

*When the raw food has not been eaten within an hour, remove it and throw it away.

 

*Make sure flies can’t get close to the raw food. Flies can spread bacteria.

 

*Make sure small children can’t get close to the raw food either.
