If you read up about it properly then it does explain that the vegetable matter is ground up so that dogs CAN digest the cellulose. It's not whole vegetables at all. There's nothing poor quality about this feed and they only use human grade food.

I sell it as part of my job, and have fed it previously. Hence how I know what I said below to be correct.

I do feel it is worth mentioning with this food, that as far as raw feeding goes, it is actually rather poor quality. Although it is better than most commercial foods you will buy, it is rather watery, expensive and also contains a lot of whole vegetables. There's nothing wrong with veg in a dogs diet, however, I feel it should be a personal choice whether or not to add it (a choice which is obviously taken away with these foods) not to mention the fact that whole vegetables cannot be digested by dogs. Feed them whole peas and whole carrots and guess what comes out the other end? That's right, whole peas and whole carrots ;)As a raw feeder I personally see this food as a good starting point, but not something to stick with.

We've been feeding our 9 month old German Shepard on Natures Menu puppy feed and she absolutely loves it, more so than any other brand we have tried. We actually cook the frozen "nuggets" before feeding and she wolfs them down like there is no tomorrow! The quality is so good that once cooked then even smell and look appetising to a human!We have tried the tripe variety, and whilst our dog loves the dried strips of tripe she wasn't as keen on the tripe nuggets as she was with the chicken. Not to mention the smell wasn't too nice when we cooked them, but she would eat them no problem.The price is a little higher than most other commercial brands but when you see the quality of the feed it is to be expected. Our 20kg GSD gets through about half a 1kg bag a day (along with a good quality dry feed) so the daily cost is around £1:50 which I feel is a good deal.
