    DefaultRaw diet causing roundworms and tapeworms?

    Maggie has been eating a raw diet (when available) for about 2 years. Recently she got both roundworms and tapeworms. Our (closest) vet is 6 hours away and sent out Sentinel/Interceptor to take care of the roundworm but we drove in to get the injection for tapeworm. She said we have to stop giving her raw food because it's how she got worms.

    All her meats are frozen prior to feeding and it's all meats we eat, too. All fish is from the Atlantic, no Pacific (mostly cod, capelin, and herring). She also eats moose, seal, rabbit, (all hunted by family) and chicken. Is it common for raw-fed dogs to get worms? Has anyone else had an issue with worms while on raw? I am being pressured to quit on the raw and I don't really want to, but we can't be making trips to the vet for tapeworm injections if it keeps happening. Please help.

    You will probably get more help with your question if you post it in the lab chat or odds and ends areas of the forum.
