No you not being preachy.
It's good that you know a lot about this because a lot of don't... like myself.
Like I said last night, this morning we went to pet value to change brands.
We were lucky enough to actually speak with a nutritionist there and she broke it down into simple terms what all this garbage on the labels mean.
Basically we got the sense that mystery meat is abound in most cheaper brands.
Avoid anything that's a "By product meal" and use caution with fillers like corn, wheat and soy.
We picked up a bag of "Blue" for indoor health for the cats to try. Gonna mix it with their current food u til weened off.
Here's a pic of their ingredient list and supplements that are in it.
We also picked up a small bag for the dog to be reintroduced to which is "Blue Wilderness"
His current food is one of the higher end Walmart brands -Actrium Holistic, its still a decent brand, but there's something in it that he's allergic
He's been getting ear infections.
He has an appointment at the vet on the 20th (Earliest time slot) so he can have it treated.
Thankfully the big guy lets the wife clean his ears with Q-Tips.
For those of you reading this, that like me, started your pets out on a quality brand but ended up cheaping out because the pet food was available at
the same spot as the grocery store...
Do your pets a favour and take that extra 15--20 minutes to stop at the pet food store as well.
Your little guys will thank you for it.
