It's even better if you feed your dog raw chicken, hamburger and steak because it is something that you know what is in it. Start reading the labels of dog foods, wet and dry and see if a normal dog *in it's natrual state* would eat those kinds of things. For instance a dog would not go out to a corn field and eat a bunch of corn, yet most dog foods that you find in the grocery store the first ingredients are corn. When do you see a dog only eat by-products of any meat? Never in their natural state. It is much healthier to feed them raw foods.
