Why would anyone reading this blog want a storage container for processed dog food? You are advocating for people to avoid nutrient-impoverished, chemical-laden processed foods — so, I hope people around here are not feeding their dogs that processed stuff from the grocery store. Why wouldn’t you feed your pet the kind of quality food you eat? And even better, like people, dogs on a healthy diet don’t smell, their teeth remain clean, and they live long lives with having to go to the vet all the time.
I’m not crazy about feeding my dogs and cats “processed food” either, but I also can’t afford human grade food for them. I guess in some people’s opinion, I shouldn’t have pets then? I figure if I provide healthy supplements, plenty of exercise and love, these “throw away” pets I adopted will make it okay.
