• I have been reading that brown rice and raw turkey is better than white rice and chicken for my dog digestive issues is that true? Second question: is Dr. Marty Nature's Blend a great product to feed dogs? My dog has had contacts digestive issues and I feel it’s because of the food he is eating contains a lot of bad ingredients. Thank you

    Hi Felicia,
    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this question. The food that will be best for your dog will depend on your pet’s age, breed, weight, and overall health. Your vet knows your pet and they can give you the best advice on this. The CDC recommends against feeding raw meat to pets. This can increase the risk of a food borne disease like salmonella, E coli, or listeria. These disease can occur in the pet and can also potentially infect humans that are caring for the pet.
