  1. On the Rachael Ray Nutrish… Do you know if its only the Grain Free on hers? I have been feeding the Real Chicken & Veggies Recipe. Should I switch?

  2. Thank you. I thought Nutro was on the good list. Is there a website with more specific info, like which Nutro, etc is on the list?
    Thank you for keeping us informed.
