Issues on Safe Dog Food
Chances are that you have at least once stumbled upon a website or advertisement proclaiming that your pet’s commercial dog food is wholly inadequate, or worse, killing your dog. These internet smear campaigns started shortly after the dog food recall scare in 2005 due to Aflotoxins in a variety of pet foods. Aflotoxins are produced by a fungus, and in this case the fungus was growing on a bad batch of corn, which unfortunately was used in a shipment of pet food.
Resulting to over 100 dogs and a cat’s illness and death was a certain company’s failure to meet the terms of conventional internal quality control and test procedures. Due to this sad event, companies especially the liable one have built up their quality control measures.
More than ever, the supply of our pet’s food is more protected and fitting. Due to vast upgrading in animal nutrition, the lives of dogs are lengthened unlike those who lived ten years ago. Moreover, the outcome has led to the infrequent adoption of new dogs and excess numbers of dogs in animal shelters.
But detractors are making issue on the rationale of spraying the food after processing to add up nutrients when in the first place it is already nutritious.
The answer is simply that micro-nutrients, such as vitamin-a for example, must be added evenly to the food and in precise and minute quantities. They are added in such a manner to ensure that every morsel is as nutritionally balanced as the next.
The only caveat to the commercialization of dog food is that there are loopholes in the regulation of dog food brands that are only sold instate. If the manufacturer does not ship his pet food product across state lines, then his product is not has heavily regulated as some of the larger, nationwide brands.
No company will ever gain from murdering the pets of their clients. Having your pets to live for decades is the company’s goal for consistent sales on their goods. It may not be so good to hear, but it is for real. It is a great driving force in the speedy progress in animal nutrition today. Thus, there exists no “plot in dog food”.
