Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I tried to decide whether to put this here or down in off topic but thought that since it does involve food, I'd be better off here.

Ingredient Splitting — Deceptive Dog Food Labeling Trick

I wonder how big a problem this really is since I think most people who have pets actually look at the entire ingredients list - don't you?

What comments do you have???

Ok you got me. I went and looked at MY bag of dog food and im not exactly sure if they do splitting but i did notice a few things. So first handful of ingredients are boar goat lamb pork lamb meal boar meal mutton meal pork meal followed by some non meat things (no splitting) but mutton meal and lamb meal why not just call it sheep meal and depending on where the boar is from, it might be feral hog and not boar.

Meat meal is also deceptive. They call it meat meal because its things you might not want your dog eating. Usually its horse. Prior to ww2 (and kibble) thats mostly what dog food was. Some unethical companies have also used euthanized animals in meat meal which has led to recalls and deaths from euthanasia drugs.

A subsidiary of jbs that makes beef meal locally was fined for using rotting maggot infected meat and cows that had died in the field 2 months ago and then a week ago was caught picking up road kill. Their #1 buyer is the purina factory in denver. Very remincent of whats going on with sunshine mills and the recent usda letter. Thank you usda for labeling dog food a feed and not a food and saying people's pets dont matter.

Mine does split the rice into white and brown. I'm not overly surprised or bothered by it. Since everything is ordered by pre-cooked weight it doesn't make sense to think that raw meat that is majority water before cooking would still be the bulk weight of the kibble after cooking and all the water is processed out of it.

Raw feeding goes through a little bit of a similar argument as dry basis raw is high protein feeding but by weight it isn't because the majority of raw feeding weight is water weight. Perspective.
