Vet recently said to me kangaroo meat not as wonderful as its promotors claim, and said if changing Rheneas to it, use human grade and cook it well, don't believe everything about it not being able to nurture worms and pass them on.  Wasn't saying don't use it, but certainly not highly recommending it. 

Very odd thing for the vet to say. There certainly could be parasites in roo ORGANS, same as in organs of most livestock, but freezing before feeding will kill them just as thoroughly as cooking. As far as I am aware, there are no parasites in roo muscle meat. Roo mince might contain the odd small percentage of organs, but not usually.

When feeding any raw meat, simply freezing it for at least a few days before feeding will destroy any parasites and most bacteria without destroying many of the vitamins/ enzymes etc. that cooking destroys.
