Beware of These Harmful Ingredients In Your Pet's Food and Treats

**Alert** Beware of Sharks in your pet's food and treats. Ever look at the label? There could be harmful ingredients lurking which could attack your pet's health. Here are just a few examples:

1) sugars--yes plenty of dog and cat treats contain sugar and molasses which contribute to gum disease, chronic infections, obesity, diabetes and even cancer. Sugar is included to disguise the taste of low quality ingredients and to entice your pet to eat more.

2) meat or animal by-product meal--contains unidentified sick, diseased animals, roadkill and worse--make sure your pet's food and treats always specifies what type of animal the food came from and avoid byproducts 

3) food coloring and dyes--many treats are colored to look like their fresh food counterparts. Ex: some treats are dyed red to look like real meat or bacon or orange to look like real carrots.

Better to give your pet the real food ingredient, not the chemicals. Rescue dog Legend says: "You are what you eat!"
