Many veterinarians warn against serving dogs and cats raw or undercooked pork because of Trichinella spiralis, an intestinal roundworm parasite that causes trichinosis (aka trichinellosis). Recently, we have heard that Trichinella spiralis has been virtually eradicated – or effectively diminished – from the United States pork industry. We had specific questions about these claims and so looked into the facts.

What are the number of reported incidents of trichinosis in the U.S?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reported cases of trichinosis are far less common now than in previous years. In fact, an average of 400 cases were recorded each year In the United States during the late 1940’s. Nowadays, the average is less than 20 and the source is generally wild game meat.

Number of trichinellosis cases, by source of infection and year, 2011–2015, as reported by health department

My hope is ...the more you read things like this, the more desensitized you will get, and lose the fear.   HeadButt
