Why I Started Rick's Dog Deli
On March 15, 2007, the FDA learned that certain pet foods were sickening and killing cats and dogs. As an owner of two dogs I immediately became concerned. After some research and planning it became apparent optimum animal health is achieved through diet. Simple, whole, and fresh foods in animal diets will provide excellent health benefits for any animal, especially your best friend.
