Why 99% of dog food is fake
Why are dogs so sick? Why are they suffering from the same diseases humans suffer … diabetes, cancer, allergies, liver disease, leaky gut and more?

Any nutritional deficiencies will suppress your dog’s immune function. His organs will start to fail because their cells can no longer support them. He’ll start to suffer from chronic inflammation, as well as diseases of the …
