The Case AGAINST Raw Frozen Pet Foods
For some 25 years I have alerted the public to the dangers of exclusively feeding heat processed foods. Companion animal feeding has progressed ? actually digressed ? from table scraps and real foods the family could spare to today?s ?100 % complete? processed foods in primarily kibble form, with some canned and semi-moist also available. The foods appear to be scientific and improved, but they?re far worse for the animals. Not only is nutrient value diminished by heat, but a spectrum of toxins is created. Additionally, the singular feeding of processed food has led to the spurious ?100% complete and balanced? claim that is both logically and scientifically flawed.
