What are animal by-products? This innocent-sounding ingredient is commonly made up of out of date grocery store meats, livestock frames, animal intestines and a variety of ingredients that are legally "unfit for human consumption". http://buff.ly/2h4943J While some pet food companies claim that by-products are nutritious and high protein, they are also cheaper than any comparable meat product.
