Did you know?

Definition of RENDER - transitive verb
1a : to melt down ; also : to extract by melting
1b : to treat so as to convert into industrial fats and oils or fertilizer

How does this affect you?

AAFCO Admits Rendered Pets in Pet Food - click here to read the article and see the short youtube video of the AAFCO’s president finally admitting this, on camera.

Lesson:

Read the labels of the foods you buy for your pets. More importantly, know how to interpret them and what the ingredients actually mean. Research the company that makes it and where they source their ingredients from.

Unless you don't mind feeding euthanized cats, dogs, roadkill, rodents, rotten grocery store meats and who knows what else to your pets...
