Raw meat-based diets for companion animals: a potential source of transmission of pathogenic and antimicrobial-resistant Enterobacteriaceae

  18 October 2019

The possibility of transmission of Salmonella and of MDR Enterobacteriaceae from raw meat-based diets to companion animals and their owners poses a severe health risk, particularly to vulnerable persons such as infants, the elderly, pregnant or immunocompromised individuals.
