Sir: We have bred dogs over a period in excess of 15 years, all of which, puppies included, have been fed daily on raw tripe, which consists largely of beef offal, as does much of the tinned dog food on the market. Over this period we have never seen a single case of anything that could be considered to express the symptoms of BSE or CJD in our dogs or their offspring.

How small is the "extremely small" risk of contracting CJD?
