Why I don’t feed my pets kibble?
“KIBBLE was invented to HUMAN convenience NOT for CATS AND DOGS”
What animals in the wild cook their food? I know not one. Processed and cooked foods are DEAD foods. Pets and people are and becoming sicker and sicker on this planet every day.
I advocate feeding your dog and cat a diet of variety in whole and raw living food.
