by Tom Cameron, DVM

(The Best Years in Life) Recently, the European Union lowered the zinc requirement in animal feeds (livestock and smaller animals), not for nutritional reasons, but because of the dangerous accumulation of zinc in the soil and water.

This has lead pet food manufactures to create grain-free formulas for both dogs and cats promoting that it is healthier and more natural.
