Some food links
www.lafeber.com Kindu loves their Nutriberries and LARGE pellets. This company sends samples and good information. We purchased their tropical fruit Nutriberries which were also a hit with Kindu.
Hagen Research www.pubnix.net/~mhagen
Kindu ate the Hagen food right away. Smells heavenly and they sent samples, information and list of distributors.
