Toxic Pet Food

Toxic Pet Food

The beginnings of the commercial pet food industry came about when  a man named James Spratt realized that there was money to be made by packaging waste byproducts of the human food industry and selling them as food for pets.  Fast forward a hundred years or so to the present, and lo and behold, the industrial manufacturing of commercial pet foods is a multi billion dollar business, despite the fact that a significant number of pets have gotten sick, and some have even died from eating contaminated pet food

When a cat eats the prey he has hunted, he is ingesting that moisture also, meaning he has very little need to seek out more water.
