    4. Dogs eat way worse things than raw or frozen raw meat, and would eat more yucky things if they could get away with it.

    Great summation!

    ...although I thought someone said that freezing wouldn't kill it??

    Puggerup - as you have children...and children can be grubby little buggers who don;t understand hygiene, I'd recommend you use an allwormer to keep the dogs and your family safe.

    I use Sentinel Spectrum. It can be expensive but it covers everything in one tab - heartworm, all intestinal worms and fleas. I buy it in the 11 - 22kg pack and halve the tab for the dogs. If you buy it on the net, you can get a pack of 6 for around $68 and that will last 6 months for both of your dogs.

    Freezing kills the NC protozoa (according to some internet sites so it must be true, right?)

    Freezing does not kill the tape worm / eggs. Or all bacteria.

    I have little fear of it with bought human grade meats and offal. It is the road kill roos, parts of a cow they decide to drag home that concern me.
