You may find this surprising, but I don’t like handling raw meat, eating meat, or smelling thawed meat. So I make sure to clean every surface during and after prepping my dogs raw meals.
This is what I use for cleaning:
🌫 A roll of freezer paper to cover the counter
🥩A cutting board meant only for raw meat
🔪A cleaver . 🧤Disposable gloves
🗞Paper towels .
👩🏼🍳An apron so raw meat doesn’t get on my clothes
✨ A scrubbing brush meant only for raw meat
✅ Places to feed raw:
• On a towel that you can wash
• Hard surfaces that can’t soak anything up
❌ Places to avoid feeding raw:
• A dog’s or cat’s bed
• Surfaces that aren’t easy to clean or wash
• Letting the dog or cat carry the raw food all over the house
I want to note that I have never been sick due to prepping my dog's raw food and have never encountered someone who became ill because of it either. Prepping your pet's raw food is the exact same process as if your family were prepping raw meat for hamburgers, making eggs, or cooking chicken. Just be mindful and clean up after yourself. ✨
