|"fish...it DEF doesnt work...i (human) got sick on fresh caught fish that had been frozen...
so it DOESNT kill anything, it INCUBATES....
it has to be at 20 below for 2 weeks or longer to KILL....normal freezers dont do that
wild canines eat random herbage to worm themselves..."
Sorry, I wasn't done. Arko, I think you may be twisted around in the difference between bacteria and parasites. Correct- freezing doesn't kill bacteria. It simply prohibits them from growing. It freezes time, so to speak. Deep freezing does, however, kill parasites. If you're buying your meat from a grocery store, etc, further freezing is not necessary as it has already been done. If you're hunting it yourself, I'd suggest freezing.
When you (human) got sick from fish, did you get worms? Probably not. So, the fact that it had been frozen doesn't really prove anything, IMO, except that the fish made you sick for any number of reasons.
Now, as for keeping our dogs parasite free. If you want to feed wild game meat or fresh caught fish without prior freezing, be my guest. Yes, you can certainly take the risk of Arko getting worms and then deworm him naturally with random herbage. But, for me and my dog, we'll just go ahead and deep freeze our game meats first. What's the big deal?
