If the dead dogs included in dog food had cancerous tumors or contagious diseases, it doesn't matter. They are still sent to the rendering factory. If the dead dogs had been treated with powerful antibiodics and other strong medications, these are included in the vat at the rendering plant. If the dog was wearing a chain around its neck, had surgical pins containing heavy metals inserted, had a flea collar on, it doesn't matter. Nothing is removed. It is all just dumped in with the rest, mechanically chopped up, heated to very high temperatures, and turned into dog food and other products like cosmetics. If the dog died of mad cow disease, the dog would still be picked up by the rendering plants because vets don't even call it mad cow disease. Instead, they euphemistically call it ”Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (CDS).” The FDA is in complete denial on this subject.
Another Important Factor – Essential Nutrients. Dogs require a balance of certain fatty acids that must be provided by their diet. Fats are needed for the absorption of vitamins A, D, E, and K. Fats provide energy as well as taste and flavor to foods. Fat provided by the diet also helps dogs maintain healthy skin and a shiny, healthy coat. Common fats used in dog foods include names like beef fat, pork fat, chicken fat, fish oil, salmon oil, and more. Anything listed as animal fat is very vague and not considered a quality ingredient. Fat content should be at least 18 percent.
So what is the best dog food? Dog food that is meat based rather than grain based. That is the secret to your dog's optimum health. Low quality dog foods will almost always be grain based and the healthier, higher quality dog foods will be meat, poultry or fish. You'll pay more for meat based dog foods, but the higher the price, the higher the quality; the higher the quality of the ingredients, the greater the nutritional value.
If you are like me, you may question reviews on food for dogs you find on the internet. Who are the ones actually rating the food? Is it actual dog owners, or representatives of the dog food company just trying to sell their product? Could it be a rival company trying to tell you that a truly good quality food is not worth anything? If you value your pet, you should research the different choices in dog food that you are presented with. Make sure your dog is getting the best nutrition you can afford. It may take some time and extra effort on your part to research the different foods on the market, but isn't your dog's health worth it?
Diseased and Dying Animals Are Intentionally Included As Dog Food Ingredients. Farm animals so sick they can't stand up are often picked up for the rendering plants without even being tested to see what is making them so sick. Often the animal will lay there until half rotten before it is picked up and taken to the rendering plant. Zoo animals that die of mysterious causes are often taken to the rendering plant. If you feed your dog commercial dog food, you may very well be feeding them diseased cattle, diseased horses, diseased giraffe, diseased hippopotamus, diseased lions, etc, etc. Diseased animals are fair game for the pet food industry and rendering plants will gladly accept the carcasses no matter the condition. There is no law against it so they do it because it is profitable to them to do so.
When dealing with meat in general, the first 50% of a slaughtered animal that can be used is considered to be ”human grade.” Some people have felt that serving their dogs ”human grade” food is a proper solution to all of their dog food needs. A lot of pet food companies use the words ”human grade” as a catch-all phrase to make some of their food sound better than it really is. While the idea of a ”human grade” food is a great one, but it isn't an absolute. To say that a food is human-grade is relatively misleading. What the term means is that the food is good enough to be consumed by humans. This has little to do with the processing of the product. The term ”made with human-grade ingredients” doesn't mean that the end product is human grade. In short, the processing of human-grade meat could in fact be something that wouldn't be healthy for human consumption at all. The AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) doesn't even have a definition of ”human grade” ingredients.
Chemical Culprits. Many dog foods contain unnecessary chemical preservatives such as butylated hudroxyanisole (BHA), butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) and ethoxyquin. Although human food also contains BHA and BHT, we consume much less than a dog does in his average 15-year life span. Chemical preservatives are commonly used by large manufacturers in large dosage because their products are made in huge quantities and distributed all over the world, often sitting for long periods of time on store shelves or in warehouses where extreme temperatures can alter the quality of the product.
