As someone here eloquently put recently (I can't remember who it was), you'd be better off feeding your dog the crap that came out of a dog on better food than feeding Ol Roy.

BHT/BHA and Ethoxyquin
These popular preservatives are heavily used in the pet food industry, not only to preserve fats but to stabilize the whole product as well. We have certainly been educated as to the dangerous side-effects of BHT/BHA in our own diets as a serious carcinogen, but little truth has been shared about Ethoxyquin. This preservative was developed in the 1950's as a rubber stabilizer and herbicide, very similar to Agent Orange! It was either never approved by the FDA or recalled after three years of human use (I researched both accounts) but one thing is for certain, the documented cases of serious side-effects resulting from exposure to, or ingestion of this chemical. Humans who were working with it in the rubber industry, reported a dramatic rise in such diseases as liver/kidney damage, cancerous skin lesions, loss of hair, blindness, leukemia, fetal abnormalities and chronic diarrhea. In animals it has been linked to immune deficiency syndrome, spleen, stomach and liver cancer, as well as the above mentioned diseases. The steady increase in animal cancer and serious diseases has paralleled the increased use of chemical preservatives in the pet food industry during the last twenty-five years!



Uh...NOT for MY dog.

It's preserved in citric acid? Not for Ella. I fear bloat with dog food as it is.

5. Animal Digest - A powder or liquid made by taking clean, under-composed animal tissue and breaking it down using chemical and or emblematic hydrolysis. The animal tissues used shall be exclusive of hair, horns, teeth, hooves and feathers, except in such trace amounts as might occur unavoidably in good factory practice and shall be suitable for animal feed. If it bears a name descriptive of its kind or flavor(s), it must correspond thereto (i.e., chicken digest). Animal Digest is a cooked-down broth made from unspecified parts of unspecified animals. Any kind of animal can be included: goats, pigs, horses, rats, etc. The animals can be obtained from any source, so there is no control over quality or contamination.

A good rule of thumb for pet food is that if you can buy it in a grocery store, it's crap. Even a lot of the foods at national chain pet stores are crap. Your best bet is to learn to read the labels and be choosy about your dog food. You'll spend less at the vet and have a healthier, longer lived dog because of it!

Ol' Roy uses dog and cat in their "animal digest" its anything that gets thrown into the vat - pounds and shelters sell dead dogs and cats to places like this (ol' roy) and they put it into their dog food.

That worse thing is - all the animals have the chemicals in them to euthanize them - add all of that up and put it in food and that is A LOT of the chemical. :yucky:
