  1. That’s it, I’m done, no more commercial dog foods for my dogs, I’m putting them on a strict whole foods diet of raw meats and vegetables from now on.

    I don’t trust the commercial brand name dog food companys anymore.

  2. Once again the Special Kitty Brand is on a list….the same brand that killed my beloved Bucky in March, 2007. Purina products are the only ones that have not had these problems.
