Q: I heard by-products are bad for dogs. Is that true?
A: By-products can be a scary word, but the truth is that for pet nutrition by-products can be the best source of nutrients for your pet! Don’t be scared as long as you are using a high quality pet food! Zak
Q: I hear that grains are bad for my dog. Should I look into a grain free diet?
A: Thanks for the question, grains can be a great source of energy. Unless you have worked with your vet to diagnose a problem you should have no problems feeding a pet food that contains grain. The best thing to do is make sure that you are using a high quality pet food that is balanced for their nutrients, Like Loyall pet food! Zak
