    Except you can’t trust what’s on the label, either!

    Once you get past the ingredients on the label, which may or may not be truthful, then you have to worry about the quality of the ingredients inside. Both of these are serious and potentially problematic issues, which makes me believe, that there are very few commercial pet foods (feed?) healthy or safe enough to feed my cat!

    Dr. Fox accurately describes the adversarial relationship that pet food manufacturers have with the customers that buy their products and support them. The industry works to deceive and it seems often, to simply cheat consumers… while simultaneously opposing common sense regulation or disclosure.

    One of the worst trends is the reformulation (uh… “improvement”) of so many pet food formulations. But researching ingredients list rarely provides the information we need, such as Dr. Fox describes. Educated from this site, we know that “improved” really means cheaper ingredients. Consumers should expect consistency and quality from wet cat foods, for example that work out to excess of $6 a pound. Many of the so-called “premium” and “ultra premium” foods are changing to “flaked” or “cubed” texture, which frankly, anyone can realize that is just a means to decrease the ingredients (it’s akin to comparing a bowl of M&Ms to the same size bowl of packed fudge… the M&Ms have all those spaces and air pockets). Also, many foods are very clearly mis or falsely labeled: the water content in many of these expensive foods is very clearly more than the stated “maximum”: when you can pour food out of a can like soup, you simply aren’t getting much “food” for your buck.
