    What is really disgusting is I Goggled Vitalife and found that they claim their treats are made with “human grade”meat. They also state

    It happens here in the US as well. I have spoken with a (person) who left the employment of a well known “natural” pet food store in an exceptionally wealthy town near me.

    Though it was most likely shared here a while back there is a TV piece done by the CBC’s Marketplace .. here’s the link:
