If You Can't Feed Your Dog a Raw Diet But Still Want High Quality

Maybe time, preference, availability, etc keep you from being able to feed a raw diet. That's okay, there are more and more decent quality kibble and pre-packaged diets out there every day. The dog food industry is responding to owner's wanting something healthier and safer for their dogs! Here are some dog foods to consider (I don't get paid to give you this info!
