Is it safe? Vet advised that some chickens might be infected with Trichinellosis. What do yall think?

According to what I found on a quick google here https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/a ... 171400380X

Notes that the worms were not found in the muscle of known infected chickens ("These results suggest that T. patagoniensis is not capable to complete its entire life cycle in chickens."). According to the CDC, there are about 12 cases per year in the US and most are attributed to eating wild game.

So avoid feeding the cat chicken intestines covered in lesions and it should be alright. I would hope that if chickens were found to have lesions on their internal organs during slaughter, some questions would be raised.

Oh thanks for the link, it was very helpful.

I dont feed intestines though, just the muscles/meat, hearts and livers.

Follow up question, what about the temp of the raw meat? Is it better if i wait for it to get to room temp or feeding straight from the fridge is ok? Fully thawed but cold.

There are a lot of links at the top of the post here viewtopic.php?f=6&t=15913

They will likely be able to answer most of your questions regarding raw feeding.

Note that intestines are never fed. Even when a cat captures a wild animal and consumes it, the intestines are usually left.

Raw chicken seems to be the most popular. There are topics all over this forum and on the internet that should answer any questions one would have.

Was not meant as literal, more a "don't feed your kitty food that looks like there is something wrong with it".

Try telling my four that, they eat whole prey, whole, 100% everything goes down the hatch, be it mouse/rat/rabbit/chicks

Food temperature is more personal to the cat, some will eat it fridge cold, some refuse and want it room temp. Some won't eat from bowls as the high sides disturb their whiskers and prefer plates with no sides. Just things to be aware of.
