    Default Raw Dog Food Contains Drug-Resistant Bacteria, Study Finds

    New research suggests raw frozen dog food contains bacteria that are resistant to key antibiotics.

    The authors were due to present their work at the now canceled 2020 European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID).
    Their work suggests that raw frozen dog food contains bacteria that are capable of resisting mainstream antibiotics.
    This poses a risk of the transmission of these antibiotic resistant bacteria from dogs to humans, constituting an international public health risk, say the authors of the study.

    Raw garlic has proven fatal to drug resistant bacteria in humans. It occurred to me that perhaps the type of enterococci bacteria resistant to antibiotics in dogs could be killed by raw garlic. Unfortunately, according to the Merck Veterinary Manual, garlic and other members of the allium family, including onions, contain thiosulfate, which is toxic to dogs. The amount needed to kill the bacteria (a couple of cloves) over the course of a few days would surely prove too much for the dog.
