I have just found out about this food - and am really quite tempted although my wallet is in tears at the cost 8O
What I would like to know is - does anyone feed this and if so what do you think???
For those that have never heard of it - it is made by a family firm in Alberta Canada.
They say that they have excluded grains because dogs are not biologically engineered to process grain (now bearing in mind all Neos allergies this is of some major interest to me anyway
) and they say that vets are blaming cereals for a number of health issues like digestive issues.....
It is apparently made up of 70% fresh meat - Chicken Fish and Eggs
Then you have vegetables which include Apples Cranberries Spinach Steamed Potatoes Tomatoes Kelp and Carrots
And then herbs Marshmallow Root Chicory and Psyillium amonst loads of others
