    We all know this ‘food’ is highly processed, using the cheapest and lowest quality trimmings, available. The trimmings are chopped, mixed with water, corn syrup or sorbitol, salt, food starch, spices and liquid smoke, then blended together.
  • Personal Experience Of Natural Diet and Healthcare Choices

    I am on a few breed lists for the breed I have which is the German Shepherd Dog. One of the ones I am on has members who use all different types of diets, and healthcare choices for their dogs.
