As veterinarians advising owners who feed raw meat diets to their pets, we would welcome articles on raw pet food, if, in addition to culturing and gleefully reporting the bacterial species found in raw pet foods, the authors would include in the discussion and abstract the pathogenic relevance for dogs, cats, and humans of each bacterial species at the bacterial concentration found.


This website is a labor of love brought to you by the volunteers at Paws For Change. Our goal is to put together links to published research studies, articles, books, and other media which have influenced our approach to feeding diets that include fresh and raw foods. We encourage everyone to research further to gain a fuller understanding of any controversies or debates involved. It is a growing collection and we welcome you to use the submission form below if you have studies you'd like to suggest be included here.
