The First Ingredient is Meat?

by in Uncategorized January 12, 2022

The first ingredient is meat. Is it? Pet food manufacturers are required to list ingredients on the bag in order decreasing by weight. However, raw meat ingredients are listed as WET weight while everything else is on an “as fed” basis (usually 10% moisture). So the first ingredient may not be the largest ingredient by weight in the food. In fact it rarely is. So read ON!!!!!!!

One popular grain free brand shows the following:

De-boned turkey, potatoes, peas, whole dried egg, potato flour, pea fiber, flaxseed,…..etc.

Do you want to feed more potatoes and peas to your pet than meat protein?

Compare to a Nulo product which we carry:

Deboned Turkey, Turkey Meal, Salmon Meal, Chickpeas, Chicken Fat…..etc.

Turkey meal and salmon meal constitute by far the greatest part of this diet!

So read the label and understand the “wet meat” story. If you’re unsure come talk to us.
