What was the factor (s) that opened your eyes from the lies of the bad kibble brands? that factor that made you discover the true behind all the agressive propaganda? For me there was many factors: When I was a little, we had a GSD/ husky mix called Oso (bear in spanish) , his first couple of years he was fed home cooked but then the pedigree brand was becoming popular in my country. So we went wit the trend and it was also recommended by a vet and we stared to feed it when there was no pedigree at the store we also fed him dog chow or alpo . This was Oso when he was like 3 years old, he was fed homecooked and table scraps at the time. This was Oso at 9 years old, he was fed pedigrre/ dog chow /alpo and table scraps. Notice the dull dry coat, and he shed a lot and had zits and bald parts on tummy, also he went compleatly blind a year after this picture and lost many teeth, he died at the age of 13. Sadly we believed the vets told us, and they were telling us that it was "the age" and "the breed" Some years after his death we find out about the 2007 insidents, and how nasty some kibbles can be, now all Osos isuess makes senses. I feel so bad we fed him this trash if we only knew what we know now.
