It’s a Dog-Eat-Horse World

We all know about the horrific treatment of animals killed for human consumption, but a lot of us dog guardians haven’t stopped to think about what we’re feeding Fido for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Recently, a University of Florida student investigated Moses Dog Food company (based in Ocala, Florida) to find out what’s in your dog’s bowl. Check out the video below to see what the student discovered:

 

 

The majority of dog and cat food comes from factory farm–raised animals who failed to meet standards for human consumption, falling into one of the “Four D’s” categories—dead, dying, diseased, or disabled. Does that sound like something you’d want to feed your dog?

Luckily, there are plenty of humane non-animal alternatives available, such as the legendary V-Dog vegan dog food available on our Web site. Wild Earth even has vegan dog treats for you to stock up on—so get shopping!

For the rest of the investigator’s photos and contact information for the company so that you can voice your concerns, please visit “The Meat They Eat.”
