|CLICK ON BOOK
Not all pet food is made equally. A lot of it is full of corn, by- products, dyes, unhealthy preservatives,
filler grains and all sorts of nasty stuff. A lot of pet food companies are perfectly happy to the dump cheap
leftovers and things that aren't safe for human consumption
(from human food processing plants) into their foods.
Although the high quality foods are more expensive, you're getting what you're paying for. Less filler material
and higher quality ingredients means more concentrated nutrients... this means you typically need to feed far
less of the high quality food than you would of the low quality one. Which also means less poop!
Corn is a low quality ingredient you never want to see in your pet food. Corn and low quality grains are two of
the biggest culprits when it comes to food allergies in our pets. Stay away from corn !!!

Many of you may say that your vet recommended a certain food. Most veterinarians acquire their only
knowledge on pet nutrition in elective classes in veterinary school. These classes are often taught by
representatives from pet food companies. Hill's, lams, and Purina are the largest contributors for these
courses. In addition, Your vet get profit from the companies for pushing these products at their clinics.
