    I can not thank you enough for your research, dedication, advocacy and pitbull like tenacity. For several reasons, I have been offline one and a half years and AM only now catching up. Interesting, isn’t it, that the majority of consumers don’t ask their veterinarians about label information?

    Excellent presentation! If that didn’t get their attention nothing will. From the new ads on TV it’s obvious the Marketing Depts are trying to spin these findings but they won’t succeed. The Internet will rule and thanks to some great bloggers and FB pages out there, with the truth readily available, I can see some companies in big trouble within a few years. Thanks for all you do Susan and Team! U ROCK!!!

    The Internet! great source of info if you can weed out whom to trust – and that takes years and a lot of digging. Incredible that people are forced to go out there to cyberspace rather than trust what is on the product packaging. Imagine if EVERYONE realised what lies and obfuscations are on packing? Not just the concerned animal people, but everyone out there in the general public – what if EVERYONE knew what was going on? Oh, maybe that is why the labels are so ridiculous.

    An excellent & concise presentation. Thank you Susan! There is no doubt they now know, & cannot argue otherwise!

    Two of the worst ingredients are “Derivatives of animal origin” and “Derivatives of vegetable origin”.

    Foods that non-specific should be avoided!

    I just discovered your website. I appreciate all of the work you put into testing and evaluating pet food. I never really thought about what goes into pet food.

    I have four cats. All of them are over 7 years old and one will be 13 in a few months. They are all healthy, but two are overweight. I thought if I bought premium brands at pet stores they would be better than the supermarket brands. Your website has opened my eyes to the games some pet food companies play.

    I used to buy Azmira from a local dealer, but he stopped selling it and I cannot find it near where I live. My cats did not overeat it and the fat ones lost weight. You might want to test Azmira, because it is one of the better brands and more pet owners should know about it.

    Are you familiar with a refrigerated pet food called “Fresh Pet?” They make a moist kibble for cats and several different dog foods. The Fresh Pet is sold in upscale supermarkets and pet stores in a refrigerated display case. It appears to be very high quality but it is also very expensive.

      Hi Rosalind – I can tell you that FreshPet is not a human grade pet food. It is a feed grade pet food. Human grade pet foods are made with human grade ingredients that meet every definition of law. Feed grade can be made from ingredients that actually violate law. Through FDA Compliance Policies. If you do a search on this website for FDA Compliance Policies you can learn more how horrible things can be.
