Freezing the meat for an extended period of time eliminates the threat of those diseases. We freeze ours for at least 2 weeks before we feed it to the dogs.

I dont know much about brucellosis, but, Amber is right- you should always freeze hog meat before feeding it. The main concern I have always heard about is the pseudo rabies and that is plenty to worry about. Freezing the meat for 2 weeks will kill most anything, bacteria or viruses. Once the freezing has killed it, then there is no worry.

As far as washing and taking care when around feral hogs, that just makes sense. I would have to look into the chlorhexidine before I would use it in my dogs mouth. I take very little comfort in just anyone telling me to put something that will kill germs on or in my dogs until I know exactly what is in said product.

Another thing that one must take into consideration is the health of you and your dogs. If a dog is raw fed, it is healthier and will stand a better chance of fighting off getting infected with disease. A dog that is hit with chemicals, vaccines and a poor diet will certainly be at more risk than one that is raw fed, chemical free and no vaccines.

You can also help prevent disease in your dogs is by giving probiotics, especially after they have been exposed to something might bring on disease. There are a ton of probiotics out there, but I would always go with one from a health food store or something like Central Market or Whole Foods. There is a difference in the quality of probiotics, so a good one is necessary. A dog that has been on anti-biotics should always be given probiotics afterwards. Anti-biotics kill all of the bacteria in the gut, even the good ones and the good ones are necessary for good health. I take probiotics after being in town, especially after being at Wal-Mart and going past the pharmacy and seeing all of those people who are coughing and sneezing, etc!!! If you are concerned after the dogs being on hogs, add the probiotics to their water or give them to them to make yourself feel a little better.

As far as using the chlorhexidine, hydrogen peroxide would be a much better product. Hydrogen peroxide kills bacteria, viruses, mold and mildew. Hydrogen peroxide is water with an extra oxygen molecule. Over the years, science has debunked it and prefers to use stuff with chlorine in it. The H2O2 is much safer and has no smell, toxic fumes, etc. Simply put, H2O2 is not a chemical as chlorine is. Be wary of anything that starts with the root chlor.

Yes you can. I'm not real sure how you are going to do that, but H2O2, 3% like you can get at the drug store or Wal-mart is what you would use. H2O2 is a great, great product for all kinds of uses. I used to have a great webpage that had such good info on it, but I cant find it, dang it. You can use it to clean out wounds and it is what is in the Oxy cleaners. It's what is used for teeth whitening, all kinds of things.

Just a little note...if they swallow any it could make them sick to their stomach...peroxide is often used to induce vomiting...they probably won't swallow enough to do the trick...but a little may upset their stomach????

Not sure about peroxide for washing out their mouths or brucellosis but I know unlike salmonella which can make a dog sick one of the biggest fears I have of feeding raw pork is a dog getting Trichinosis from eating raw pork which can be deadly to a dog. I use raw pork but always freeze it for a minimum of 3 weeks to kill any parasites before giving it to the dogs.
