Woman Goes on Dog Food Diet for 30 Days

(KNDU) A woman in Richland, Washington is em"bark"ing on a new mission. This month she's eating with her pets, and chowing down on nothing but pet food.

Dorothy Hunter owns Paws Natural Pet Emporium, where her endeavor started while stocking shelves.

"I didn't have time to go get a snack," she said, "so I grabbed a bag of treats off the counter, and I was like, wow, you know, these read better than normal people treats. So I started eating the treats and I was like, you know, I could do this for 30 days."

The experiment isn't about taste; Dorothy has a bigger message.

"Learn about what you're eating and what you're feeding your pets. I think if we can get the awareness out of reading the ingredients, and really understanding what is in the pet food, that that will eventually carry over," Hunter says. "If you're feeding your pet healthy, maybe you'll start reading the ingredients of your own foods, and maybe you can start eating healthy too."
