Wow! That's great information. We must be aware of what our dogs eat and we must not feed the dog anything that we are not sure of.

Would like to know what anyone might think of the dog food by Natural Life. They have a formula that is grain free, it's called Puppy Or Adult Lamaderm. If someone that knows more than I do (which isn't much), please check it out at nlpp.com and let me know! Thanks!!

I'm not familiar with that company so can't say.My understanding is that any thing in biscuit form is very hard for your dog to digest and extract nutrients, putting stress on all major organs.Its just not their natural food.Hey but I'm no expert.

My boy has turned up his nose at beef bones, lamb bones, I found chicken feet and turkey necks that he enjoys. Gross looking chewing and cracking sounds but it's cleaning the teeth sound.

Tried a smoked knee bone and that didn't do well coming out.
