The TRUTH About Pet Food with Susan Thixton

The TRUTH About Pet Food with Susan Thixton

I've called the pet food world "The Wild West" before but you may not have known quite why I feel this way. We know "The Wild West" to be a relatively lawless place where people did what they wanted and not much regulation was happening.

That's exactly how I see Big Pet Food. 

Much of what I know about pet food I learned from Susan Thixton and her blog Truth About Pet Food.

Susan joins me today to let you in on the secrets that Big Pet Food doesn't want you to know about!
