Pedigree "wire" in dog food. Do you REALLY know what's in your dogs food?

PEDIGREE DOG FOOD "WIRE" - PLEASE SHARE & READ ALL EVEN IF YOU DONT FEED PEDIGREE.
By now you have probably seen all the news and social media the reports of pieces of “wire” in Pedigree dog food. Well this wire is actually animal hair and is allowed by AAFCO. However, what I am writing about is far more concerning than pig hair, its what in our dogs food PERIOD and Pedigree definitely is not the only one! You would fall off your chair & be sick to your stomach if you knew what is in your dogs food and what AAFCO allows in man's best friends food!!  For starters, when you look at a bag of dog food and it shows that pretty photo of a nice piece of chicken and veggies, that is false advertising and could not be further from the truth. Lets start with rendering plants, do you know what a rendering plant is? what about rendered meat? or denatured 3D or 4D meat? Have you ever asked your butcher where all the bad meat goes and who picks it up after they denature it? Is it pick up in a refrigerated truck? It is left in its packaging when processed?  If not, you should because its in a TON of dog foods on the market, but there are a few good ones out there and I want you all to be in the know!  I know whenever I post these types of posts most of you just ignore them and makes me sad because I know how much your love your dogs and they depend on us for their health & nutrition!!  Like I have said over and over NUTRITION IS THE KEY TO HEALTH & LIFE for both us and our pets!  I am happy suggest to you all a better diet to fit within your budget and time. I am not telling you that you have to feed raw like I do.  I understand that many may not have the time, space, resources, education, or not within your budget. Although raw or cooked can be done for as little as $4-5 a day for a large dog!  For those that want or have to feed a dry, wet, dehydrated or prepared raw that is fine too, but let me suggest better and healthier options and ways to add value to your dogs food!  Learn how to read ingredients, even the ones that sound good are not at all what they seem..  The ingredients seen below are from Pedigree, this is an example of what should NEVER be in your dogs food and like i mentioned Pedigree is NOT the only one. Unfortunately most dog food on the market are far from cry from healthy and balanced.

You think your are getting whats pictured on the bag but actually you are getting whats pictured below! This goes for majority of dog food!


For example, when Nami came to me as my foster she had horrible a ear infection, it looked like bloody cauliflower inside her ears, sorry its so descriptive :P,  her coat was dull, she was heavy,  smelled and not balanced mentally or physically.  Nami had been on Pedigree since she was a puppy... The second she came to me as my foster her life &health was was the start to a dramatic change!  I started imediately with a liver and blood cleanse, got her on some pertinent whole food supplements that her body was sp badly lacking and on a clean raw prey model diet. Within 2 WEEKS she looked and acted like a new dog!  Ears perfect, weight off, shiny, smells good, no bad breath, a new dog!!  When Sassa with the Rottie rescue came over to visit she could not believe the transformation.  I fixed it all without a single medication or vet visit.  If you look down I have posted the ingredients to the food she WAS on previous to me. Please read the ingredients, does this look healthy to you?  Does this look like what a carnivore should eat??? This is the furthest thing from healthy.  You want to know what kind of meat is in here??  Don't just take my word for it google RENDERING PLANTS or RENDERED MEAT, this is where that meat came from (i will not go into detail here because you will all be so upset what kind of meats are actually in rendered meat,   I also urge people to do the research themselves, education is the key!it!  Sadly, the MAJORITY of dog food out there is made of denatured 3D & 4D meat or rendered meat!  The dog food companies don't have to tell you either! ts truly horrifying and if you love your dogs you should know what your are feeding them.

In this story they go over other dry dog foods - If you are going to feed a dry dog food Orijen or Acana by Champion Pet foods is the ONLY dry dog food I would feed & also chosen on this clip.  But what is really important is that we add moisture to that dry food. So add Raw Goat milk or goat yogurt, bone broth, a farm fresh egg now and then, streamed or pureed veggies (must break cell wall), fresh meat, berries (not strawberries)... & alway make sure you dog had fresh water available in a glass or stainless bowl cleaned daily - NEVER PLASTIC
