Anyone heard of Verus?
I went to the pet supply store today to see about getting a new food for Kovi. The girl recommended Verus and gave me a sample. I've never heard of it before, but it seems to be in line with the other high quality brands. The store also sells products like California Natural and Canidae (sp?) so they carry the better brands. I'm just not sure about this one, any feedback would be good. Here's the info I could find:
