When selecting a diet for your animal it’s important to think about the quality of the ingredients that are used. You have to look for high quality ingredients that are easy to assimilate and digest. Oven-Baked TraditionTM food has thought of this with its natural ingredients and its holistic philosophy. We sincerely believe that it’s the way Mother Nature intended it to be.
