Maybe the most horrific revelation is that your dog food could perhaps contain dead pets, mostly cats and dogs which have been euthanized and sent to a pet food plant. Los Angeles alone ships approximately 200 tons of such deceased animals to manufacturing plants, euthanized animals which have been killed by the administration of Sodium Pentobarbital. The chemical remains in active form in the final pet food product because is withstands the rendering process.

First five ingredients Analysis of Beneful dog food:
1. Ground yellow corn
2. chicken by-product meal
3. corn gluten meal
4. whole wheat flour
5. animal fat
The first ingredient of Beneful Healthy Radiance dog food is Ground Yellow corn. Corn has been linked to many different problems within dogs including yeast infections to allergies. Corn is often difficult for dogs to digest and offers no nutritional value. We usually never recommend a dog food brand that contains corn.
The second ingredient Chicken By-Product meal is also one we try and stay away from. Its hard to determine the quality of this ingredient. Chicken By-Products are usually lower quality parts of the chicken that are rejected for human consumption.
Again Corn shows up as the third ingredient. It shows up in the form of a Gluten meal, which basically means after everything that may be nutritious has been removed from corn, they take whats left over and call it Gluten Meal.
Whole Wheat flour is the fourth ingredient. This ingredient is also one we don't want to see in dog food. Whole Wheat flour is one ingredient that has been linked to numerous cases of dog allergies.
The fifth ingredient, Animal fat is an ingredient in which it is impossible to correctly identify the source. When you can't identify the source usually this means that it is of lower quality.
With all these unwanted ingredients in the first five ingredients it would be hard to recommend this food to anyone. People are drawn to this food due to the cheaper price. One must think about the future. Ingredients in Beneful dog food have been linked to cases of allergies. Allergies = Vet Visits and Vet Visits = $$$. Your dogs food is an investment of your dogs health.
