Truth About Pet Food
Traditional dog food is made with rendered meat, animal by products, artificial ingredients and preservatives that can cause health and digestive issues.
Animal by products, antibiotics, and hormones are associated with disease and inflammation that can lead to a shortened life span.
Most brands source meats from factory farms that are responsible for excessive waste, air and water pollution, and animal cruelty.
