What's really in your pet's food? Many "premium" pet foods contain toxic, often cancer-causing chemicals plus other ingredients that will disgust you! Do you have a pet that you really care about? If so ... it is important to read and understand the labels on pet foods.
BY-PRODUCTS: Part of the animal NOT fit for human consumption. Can include intestines, chicken heads, duck bills, chicken & turkey feet, feathers and bone. Ingredients listed as beef, chicken & poultry by-products ARE NOT REQUIRED TO INCLUDE ACTUAL MEAT!
PRESERVATIVES: Ethoxyquin, BHA and BHT are chemical additives used as preservatives. Ethoxyquin is regulated as a pesticide and cannot be added to human food. The average dog (44 lbs) can consume 26 lbs. of preservatives each year!
FILLERS: Many pet foods contain fillers that have little or no nutritional value ... feathers, soy, cottonseed hulls, corn cobs, peanut hulls, citrus pulp, weeds, straw and cereal by-products.
The use of low quality products and chemical preservatives may be associated with dry skin, allergic reactions, dental disease, poor health and degenerative organ dysfunction. LOOK OVER YOUR CURRENT PET FOOD! SMELL IT! TASTE IT! WOULD YOU EAT IT? IF NOT - WHY WOULD YOU FEED IT TO YOUR PET?
