Episode Description

We have learned a lot about nutrition for humans and the importance of organic non processed foods. Is it any different for our four legged friends? Why give real food to dogs when you can always open a bag or can? The reason is dogs are real live beings and they need real food. We would never think of only feeding our children out of a bag or a can for the rest of their life.. and certainly not the same foods day in and day out. It’s just common sense. Dogs have lived with humans for at least 40,000 years, some experts think much longer. And these dogs have been eating the same foods as humans for that long. It was only about 100 years ago that big food companies realized how much money they could make with their manufactured food waste.
