We can preach all we want about healthy dog foods and the ones you should feed you dog but it will go into deaf ears as long as we continue to get reports like this from dog food companies that are finding poison in their product! Sadly, this is not limited to the “cheaper” dog foods. There are some better-known dog foods that are considered healthier, that have, over the years, come under suspicion as well.
For more information go to The Dog Food Advisor. We can only hope that better regulations will keep our precious pups safe in the future!
