That is still sub standard.You are correct, Sharon. Many dietary holes. That said more and more dog owners are beginning to realize the health benefits associated by feeding a RAW type of diet. For instance, I know of a owner of two retrievers who feed a weekly diet of bones, raw beef, chicken, turkey with an assortment of veggies. Interesting to watch dogs gobble up turkey necks, chicken feet, beef tripe, etc - all outstanding sources of nutrients. And, believe it or not, the food bill is less than mine on kibble. I am also hearing from many dog owners who are fasting their dogs one day a week. In addition, and maybe this should be saved for a second topic, many dog owners these days are finally realizing that pounding your dogs with vaccinations can be detrimental to the overall well being of the dog.
All pro trainers know that the entrails contain the proper nutrition for total canine development and hair makes good roughage along with whatever is in the intestines,,, not meat and bones and vegies..
