Raw Dog Food Companies:
When researching raw food companies in your area, ask questions. Where do they get their sources? Are these sources "clean" raised without antibiotics, growth hormones, etc. You should avoid feeding anything from feed-lot sources. Most of the meats in the grocery store come from conventional feed-lot animals (not a pretty sight as I've seen them) and they are raised with antibiotics, steroids, growth hormones, poor quality and harmful GMO feeds (which are sprayed with toxic pesticides), sodium nitrite, etc All that harmful stuff goes into the body, human or animal. Do the animals graze on grass? Do the chickens, ducks and turkeys have ample access to the outdoors so they can move and peck? What other "foods" do the animals eat and are those foods non-GMO (genetically modified organisms). Many times you can go directly to the source's website for answers or call to ask these questions directly. Does the raw food company HPP (high pressure processing) or anything else to "kill" the beneficial bacteria that healthy dogs can handle? I never feed anything that is HPP'd; the foods must be untouched. Don't just assume all raw food companies provide quality products. Everything we put into our dogs' bodies will, over time, make a dramatic difference between health and disease.
