Great idea.  I was shocked to learn how terrible some of the ingredients are in big brands such as Purina.

I bought Pur Luv beacon strips at petsmart and almost lost my German shepherd. He had severe poisoning, I was sure he was a gonner but he got thru it. I did research on these beacon strips and so many people complained about their pets being sick or died after consumption. Pur Luv never pulled their product and petsmart continued to sale it. Assholes.

Glossary

Animal Digest: This is the dry by-product of rendered meat. During rendering, all usable animal parts (including fetal tissues and glandular wastes) are heated in vats and the liquid is separated from the dry meal. This meal is covered with charcoal and labeled "unfit for human consumption" before processing it into pet food. Digest can also include intestines, as well as the contents of those intestines, such as stool, bile, parasites and chemicals.

Animal Fat and Tallow: Animal fat is a "generic" fat source that is most often made up of rendered animal fat, rancid restaurant grease or other oils that are deemed inedible for humans. Tallow is low quality hard white fat that most animals find hard to digest, not to mention the cardiac risks resulting.

Chemical Preservatives: Chemical preservatives include BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole), BHT (butylated hydroxytolulene), propyl gallate, propylene glycol (also used in automotive antifreeze and is suspected of causing red blood cell damage) and ethoxquin , are all potentially cancer causing agents that your pets are eating every day.

Chicken By-products: These are ground parts from poultry carcasses such as feet, heads, feathers, intestines, necks and undeveloped eggs and can included any rendered material.

Corn Products: Corn products including corn meal, gluten and grits are cheap, allergy causing fillers and are very difficult for animals to digest.

Food Fragments: Lower end by-products of the food manufacturing process, examples include wheat bran and brewers rice which are a waste product of the alcohol industry.

Ground Whole Grain Sorghum: The feed value of grain sorghum is similar to corn and is grown primarily as a feed grain for livestock.

Meat and Bone Meal: “Meat” and bone meal are inexpensive sources of animal protein. Note that these companies do not clarify the source of “meat”, nor are they human-grade meat. The protein in Meat meal containing a large amount of processed bone may not be digestible and fail to provide adequate nutrition.

Meat Based: A label that say "meat based" may also include blood vessels, tendons, organs and other parts of the rendered animal. Note again that these companies do not clarify the source of “meat”, nor are they human-grade meat products.

Meat By-products: Pet grade meat by-products consist of organs and parts not desired or not fit for human consumption. This can include organs, bones, blood and fatty tissue. It can also include brains, feet, heads, intestines and any other internal parts. Unbelievably, by-products can also contain cancerous or diseased tissue containing parasites.

Take a look for yourself

Don't let the colorful pictures and wording on these pet food manufacturer’s bags mislead you! How does your pet food ingredients stack up to quality ingredients found in our Holistic/human-grade

My dog only eats Blue Buffalo. .my poor dog just went to the neurologist he might have a brain tumor. The doc is treating him for fluid on his brain till I raise the funds for an MRI. I'm lucky in the sense that my English bulldog is seeing a UGA vet graduate.

Blue Buffalo has been recalled several times for Salmonella! I don't think they monitor their food as closely as others. 

 

PS: My Vet told me not to feed my cat Blue Buffalo cat food as well.  It wasn't a problem.  She took one sniff at it and refused to eat it.  Threw out a new bag and several cans I had purchased at Petco.  (Later they told me that anything like happen, I can bring them back for a full refund.)

well thats just great,,,my dog will only eat Blue Buffalo so I have no choice. I dropped well over a $100 for dog food he wont eat and Blue is all he will touch. 

 

I know if your dog is a picky eater leave the food out until he eats its it but my dog has lost 17lbs any more weight loss and he could die. I baked this dog a whole chicken for him he wouldn't touch it.

 

I have to feed my dog by spoon and he gets his water through a syringe. I'm doing everything in my power to keep my dog alive and so far all is ok.

 

 

I just took a pic of him on his bed...

Square the Sponge Pants ate barnacles which are technically animals so we can eat it all safely I'm pretty sure.
