Playing the Name Game in Your Dog Food - Sep. 20, 2010
We do like to discuss food at Animal Essentials.
It is our bread and butter.
Which we do not recommend feeding to Fido, regardless of how sad he looks sitting beside you at the breakfast table.
One thing we have always said since opening the doors at Animal Essentials...read what is printed on the side or back of the bag as opposed to what is on the front.
It is the old adage that you cannot tell a book by its cover.
In our latest chapter of guess what the ingredient is, the choice this month is Phosphoric Acid. The ingredient is a clear and colourless liquid (H3PO4 if you are checking the element table!) used in fertilizers, detergents, food flavouring and pharmaceuticals.
The ingredient is actually harmless, but is also an unnecessary ingredient used in inexpensive and poor quality dog food as flavouring or discoloration. It is used, for example, as a flavouring for Coke.
We try and show ingredient lists on this site once a month.
