    Interesting. Texas has all of the disease possibilities. Isn't that just lovely. One more thing I have to worry about now. :(

    first thing i notice...
    they are anti raw...
    they want you to test for parisites at least twice yearly...*blinks* we have 6 dogs, we fecal once a year or so and the oldest is now 6 and we havent had any intestinal parisites in 6 yrs! newither i or our vet feel it nessicary to fecal test every 6 months unless you board/dog park and have a poop eater.

    otherwise good info.

    FoxyWench, I missed that on that website. Thanks for pointing that out. I fed a commercial raw buffalo to Poco for years with great benefit. He never had a parasite problem. The only parasite problems my dogs have ever had have been from either a tick or flea bite.
