  1. nice. I have this same stuff for Mitzie. I think it’s bull crap. “stop use and throw out food?” How about a refund douchebags! And maybe help pay for the hospital bills. That explains why I have been feeling the way that I have been. What dicks!

  3. My resident dogs eat Natural Balance. I also cook for them all, make my own treats & only allow certain people food. Altho, their dog food is all ppl grade, as are their treats. They get a variety of fresh vegies, fruits, yogurt & venison to name a few. I believe the only way to try protect your animals & keep them healthy is to stay away from just about every mass produced food/treats.
