I've spoken to my husband about raw feeding and although he's mostly ok of it, he may still have some...

    I kid you not, I was talking to a buddy and this is what they told me. The brands I've mentioned were Chicken Soup For The Dog Lovers Soul, Taste Of The Wild and Natural Balance. I'm too dumbfounded to even be offended. What irony!
