Wow...I should have read this post first! I just posted a new thread on foods and which ones to go to next. I'm convinced now that I want away from Hills brands. Thank you yet again for much needed information.

It sounds like they're saying that even high quality grain free kibble can contain mycotoxins. The one commenter on the article said that they fed only organic grass fed meat, which is great if you can afford it, and then of course you would need a variety of other foods and/or supplements to balance it. I am currently feeding mostly a combination of home cooked and raw frozen, but have been using some kibble (NV Instinct or Origen) as well. I still make the recipe Sabine gave me, but only give it once or twice a week, since it was too much cooking! I don't know what a person is supposed to do when time and money both always seem to be in short supply. It has been working well for me to supplement my little buddy's diet with a small amount of kibble during the day. He seems to enjoy pushing around his "kibble ball" and eating his lunch out of it, but now I'm thinking that maybe no kibble is safe. Of course, I have no illusions that even the human food supply chain is completely safe. Even the best organic food, even home made, could have e-coli or salmonella or whatever, it's just that your odds are better. People develop psychiatric disorders, becoming too paranoid to eat or drink anything. Maybe they are the sane ones. For the time being I will investigate the mycotoxins in kibble issue more closely, and may decide to forego it altogether.
