Pesticides

We wonder why so many dogs have sensitive stomachs etc. Give me 6 guesses and I bet I can identify what company is guilty . Bugs and Pesticides in the Pet Food, Shared by an Employee

Do you really need 6?

Pesticides terrify me with these small animals. I keep mine off all lawns unless I KNOW the owner doesn't use chemicals on their lawns.

I agree. I don't even like going to the park. You never know what they have sprayed on stuff!

One reason I am so frustrated with poor Sophie and her itchies and tummy issues is it doesn't run in her line at all so her genetics should have been on her side, she wasn't over vaccinated and she has been on very good food, for the majority of her life it was home cooked or raw. Plus I never use anything toxic ever and keep her away from it at all costs in public.

yeah at least with our own lawns we have control over it. , it's when this stuff gets into food that people have no idea what goes into it. I might only need three guesses. It tends to be repetitive , these culprits.

hi Heather here is a TYPE OF FOOD guideline . I always say the best brand of food is the type YOUR dog does good on. All i'll say is stay away from well known dog food companies. ie the ones you see most on tv. Sabine studies the food companies and if you want to find out the best in all catagories she is worth a consultation. She'll give you a choice of half a dozen and it may be worth the small price she charges. here's Dr. Becker's list ... From Best to Worst - My NEW Rankings of 13 Pet Foods

Thank-you Dave. There are just so many food out there. I try to give my two what I think is good, but then there might be a better choice. A consultation probably would be a good idea.
