Is Your Dog’s Food Toxic?
How can you know if there are dangerous ingredients in your dog’s food? Recently Dogs Naturally created a Dog Food Ingredient Analyzer Tool. It enables you to look up ingredients and view information about what those ingredients are and whether or not they are dangerous.
Here is the PDF link for the Dog Naturally Pet Food Ingredient Analyzer:
I always tell people to keep in mind that although there is legislation with regard to food labeling, labels are useless because there is rarely (if at all) any enforcement when it comes to safety and ingredients. Read The FDA Refuses to Enforce Pet Food Ingredient Laws.
Blue Buffalo was sued after they lied about their ingredients having no by-products. You may read about Merrick’s lawsuit and Blue Buffalo’s lawsuit. These corporations used deceptive practices and deliberately created products in a manner they wished in order to increase profits at the expense of the health and well-being of our dogs.
This is why I ONLY recommend food that is raw. All those vitamins and minerals you see on the labels of most dog food are there because those products are not nutritious. If the food were healthy, there would be no need for those long lists of synthetic and/or highly processed ingredients including vitamins, minerals, and other additives. I’ve written all about this subject. I do not recommend synthetic ingredient-based diets, only diets that are appropriate biologically for the species.
