Re: Food suggestions for a dog with food allergies

Food allergy testing is very $ and not accurate at all.

Re: Am Veterinary Med Assn ruling against Raw Pet Foods

While it is possible for pets to get salmonella from raw food, in all the years I have been feeding and selling raw I dont know of a single client who's pet got sick. Probably because you are not a vet, so you don't get to determine what is real or not, everything is hearsay. I have 5 or 10 raw fee...

While it is possible for pets to get salmonella from raw food, in all the years I have been feeding and selling raw I dont know of a single client who's pet got sick.

Re: Plop, plop, poop

I find your comments regarding Champion hard to believe. You are getting information from someone else, so its not a personal experience. I am in the industry now and worked with vets before.

Re: Plop, plop, poop

What about fat intolerance? I have had dogs that owners are sure its allergies and its a fat intolerance.

Re: Recall, Kirkland and Taste of the Wild
