I normally get all my raw supplements from the health food store. They usually carry the ones in capsules i can open up and dump the insides into. This time i chose to get solid pills and crush them to save money. BIG MISTAKE.

they are made with wood pulp to bulk them up and hold them together. Wood pulp is exactly the reason my cat was put on raw to start. Wood pulp makes cats sick.

my message is this: read the labels and google everything before feeding them into raw. I had to throw these out and go get new ones that didnt have all the additives.
