I located this comment on a social networking thread regarding the above video: "The woman is full of baloney!"
My response: NOT! Read her book, Food Pets Die For (Ann N. Martin). She worked for a pet food manufacturer in the past. There are some brands of pet foods she recommends in her book that are "cleaner" than others.
Also, if you watch the show "Dirty Jobs", Mike Rowe does a piece on an animal rendering facility where he picks up dead, diseased farm animals. It shows the DISEASED animal being processed for animal feed.
I don't believe there is much nutrition after grains and dead animal remains have been baked to a hard nugget. Same goes for eating the same food day after day. Remember the saying "You are what you eat?" The fuel our pets eat determines the outcome of their lives. Why not give them a higher quality meal to extend their life expectancy?
I don't feed my dog PROCESSED foods. She eats whole human food. Her allergies went away from a cleaner diet.
If you haven't tried an unprocessed whole diet for your pet, don't knock it 'til you've tried it. You have nothing to compare it to without trying it. That being said you have to know what foods to and not to feed your pet.
