I just finished reading information from the magazine 'Dogs Naturally', regarding the pre-mix used on dry dog kibble. I was sad to see that Taste of The Wild High Prairie formula looks like they use a pre-mix. These mixes are often made overseas (China, poor quality control) and are added to the kibble during production. What to do. So far, Kipawa is doing well on this food, which we supplement at each feeding with some raw. Regarding TOTW, and some current problems with it, now I am wondering if I should make a switch to a kibble that has the "5 ingredients" concept. Comments appreciated.
Here is the ingredient list for Taste of The Wild High Prairie:
Bison, lamb meal, chicken meal, egg product, sweet potatoes, peas, potatoes, canola oil, roasted bison, roasted venison, natural flavor, tomato pomace, ocean fish meal, salt, choline chloride, dried chicory root, tomatoes, blueberries, raspberries, yucca schidigera extract, dried Enterococcus faecium fermentation product, dried Lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, dried Lactobacillus casei fermentation product, dried Lactobacillus plantarum fermentation product,dried Trichoderma longibrachiatum fermentation extract, vitamin E supplement, iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, copper proteinate, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, potassium iodide, thiamine mononitrate (vitamin B1), manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, ascorbic acid, vitamin A supplement, biotin, niacin, calcium pantothenate, manganese sulfate, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), vitamin B12 supplement, riboflavin (vitamin B2), vitamin D supplement, folic acid
