Do you ever wonder what is actually in your pet’s food? Contrary to popular belief, it is not always the “first four” ingredients listed that make up the portion of the product. The number of main ingredients actually depends on the specific formulation of a food and degree of variety included. What you need to look for is the first source of fat or oil that appears in the ingredient list. This can be either an animal or vegetable source, anything listed before that first source of fat, including the fat are the main ingredients of the food. These ingredients must contain at least 4 % of the diet.
Evaluating the quality of the ingredients is tough. As a consumer you have no way of knowing how much of an ingredient is really in a food or whether it is a good or poor quality ingredient. The AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Official which regulates the feed industry) does not permit statements in regards to quality of ingredient labels. Consumers need to do their homework to determine what is in their pet’s food regarding the quality and quantity of ingredients.
Due to ambiguous names of many ingredients, it is difficult to determine exactly what the manufacturer is putting into the food. Pet owners need to understand that supplements like glucosamine and probiotics used in the food generally do not include the quantity needed for therapeutic effect for particular health conditions. Certain food ingredients may also contain small amounts of minerals, dyes, mold/fungus, bacteria & heavy metals that are harmful to pets.
Not until now has there been a food manufacturer that list their guaranteed analysis, caloric contents, contaminants and is totally transparent of what is in each bag or can of their pet food. Introducing TRANSPARENT NUTRITION DIETS.
