Natural, grain- and gluten-free pet food. It's costly, but is it needed?

Natural, grain- and gluten-free pet food. It's costly, but is it needed? | Whole Earth Pets | Scoop.it
For some pampered pups, the days of smelly food from a can are a distant memory. Instead, they might dine on freeze-dried turkey hearts or pheasant patties, organic raw food or gluten-free meals. There are many grain-free options, from companies big and boutique, and those that advertise that their food comes from just one source of protein — New Zealand lamb or wild salmon, for example.
Natalia Corres's insight:

We always recommend Turkey Jerky.

We've found product here in the USA that is made from Turkey Raised Without Added Hormones

No Preservatives
No Added MSG
No Nitrite
