Bad Dog Food Ingredients | Worst Dog Food Explained
INGREDIENTS TO AVOID IN COMMERCIAL DOG FOODBEEF AND BONE MEAL – (protein source):
A byproduct made from beef parts which are not suitable for human consumption.It can incorporate the entire cow, including the bones, but the quality cuts of meat are alwaysremoved.This is an inexpensive, low quality ingredient used to boost the protein percentage.
MEAT BY-PRODUCT – (protein source):
Pet grade meat by-products consist of organs and parts either not desired, or condemned, for humanconsumption.This can include bones, blood, intestines, lungs, ligaments, heads, feet, and feathers. – This can alsoinclude the dreaded 4 D’s – (Dead, dying, diseased or dying prior to slaughter).The animal parts used can be obtained from any source, so there is no control over quality orcontamination.Any kind of animal can be included: goats, pigs, horses, rats, misc. road kill, animals euthanized atshelters and so on. It can also include pus, cancerous tissue, and decomposed (spoiled) tissue.
MEAT AND BONE MEAL – (protein source):
The animal parts used can be obtained from any source, so there is no control over quality orcontamination. Any kind of animal can be included: “4-D animals” (dead, diseased, disabled, or dying prior toslaughter), goats, pigs, horses, rats, misc. road kill, animals euthanized at shelters and so on.It can also include pus, cancerous tissue, and decomposed (spoiled) tissue.
BEEF TALLOW – (fat source):
Used to make lower quality dog foods palatable, instead of using quality fat sources such asnutritionally rich chicken fat, or human grade vegetable oil.
ANIMAL FAT – (fat source):
Animal fat is a “generic” fat source that is most often made up of rendered animal fat, restaurantgrease, or other oils too rancid or deemed inedible for humans.Look for a named fat source, such as poultry or chicken fat that is naturally preserved.
CORN (filler/fibre source/vegetable):
*NOTE: no redeemable nutritious value in any dog food listing this as their first ingredient. It isuseless filler that is a known cause of allergies and is difficult for dogs to digest.
CORN OR WHEAT GLUTEN MEAL – (Binder):
This is the remainder of the corn after the best parts of the corn have been removed.It does absolutely nothing for the animal and actually is difficult to digest and is used as a cheapbinder.
WHEAT FLOUR – (fibre source):
Wheat is the leading cause of dog allergies. Absolutely useless with no nutritional value whatsoever.This is the fine particles of wheat bran, wheat germ, and the offal from the “tail of the mill.” “Tail of the mill” means the floor sweepings of leftovers in the mill after everything has been processed from thewheat.
FOOD FRAGMENTS – (filler/fibre source/carbohydrate source):
Low cost by-products and left overs from another food manufacturing process. Examplesinclude
WHEAT MIDDLINGS AND SHORTS, (Floor sweepings)
,
WHEAT GERM MEAL,
 
WHEAT BRAN
and
BREWER’S RICE
(a waste product of the alcohol industry).Also look for and avoid fragments which are labeled
POTATO PRODUCT
,
MIDDLINGS/MIDS
or
MILL RUN
of any kind.Unspecified grain sources like:
CEREAL FOOD FINES
,
CORN BRAN
,
OAT HULLS
,
RICEHULLS
,
PEANUT HULLS
,
DISTILLERS GRAIN FERMENTATION SOLUBLES
, and last but not least
CELLULOSE
(which is wood which is dried and ground up)
*NOTE: These ingredients listed above are all ALLOWED AS ACCEPTABLE INGREDIENTS INTHE
