Over the years I have been asked for pet product suggestions of all kinds. Here are some recommendations.
*Click a category link and it will jump you down the page to give you my recommendations.
*I prefer to use companies that privately manufacture their food. Why? In 2007 hundreds of brands of dog foods were caught in a recall because they used 1 of the 2 major manufacturers.
With companies who privately manufacture their food, they tend to work closely with their suppliers, maintain quality control because it is in their own facility and batch-test their food BEFORE they release it for sale.
Raw dog food: The brand has several varieties and types of food for dogs and cats such as freeze-dried or frozen Raw dog food, a meal add-in that is meant to be mixed with other food and kibble. I used the frozen or freeze-dried meal.

The best part is you can use the lid to strain out the liquid without dirtying a separate strainer.
