I recognize that not all Wieczna Zabawa - Highway (24) - Dokąd Biegniesz? can do raw or home cooked for a variety of reasons.
And that's how Wellness Pet Food became a topic on my blog. Wellness is the company who produces dog and cat food, Old Mother Hubbard dog treats, and Sojos dehydrated pet food. Well, I Goatwhore - A Haunting Curse think this meant that they were adding freeze-dried protein to their dry dog food.
So while I thought Wellness had joined us on Planet Raw, turns out that they are still on Planet Kibble, with a food topper. And because I have seen the benefits of raw feeding for dogs, I now don't believe kibble is the best food for our pets. This is what makes me biased, and I want to Raw To The Core - Maxi Flexa - Raw To The Core / More Vibes upfront about it.
There are many pet food ingredients corn, food dyes, chemical preservatives that we should all avoid. Wellness is better. But before we start a drum circle about Wellness Pet Food, let's review the below ingredients. Note to my Site Challenged readers: I will update this post as soon as Wellness publishes the full ingredients online.
A representative from WellPet was kind enough to send these camera phone images of the ingredients. As you can tell by the ingredients, this isn't raw dog food. The freeze-dried protein is 8th, 7th, and 9th respectively on the list of the above foods. Is meat the first ingredient? Ingredients are required to be listed in order by weight. This dog food would be more impressive if all of the proteins were turned into a meal.
It's important to keep in mind that having a whole protein as the first ingredient isn't as impressive as we may think because it's filled with water, which is what makes it so heavy that it has landed in the number one spot.
If the water weren't included in Raw To The Core - Maxi Flexa - Raw To The Core / More Vibes weight, the protein would fall farther down on the list as the weight decreased water is heavy, remember? So, Raw To The Core - Maxi Flexa - Raw To The Core / More Vibes be clear, although we see two proteins listed as the first and second ingredient, there is only one when we disregard the water in the whole protein.
How Much Freeze-Dried Meat? They aren't spread throughout the bag. After see where the freeze-dried proteins land on the ingredient list makes me hopeful that there is more freeze-dried protein in this Wellness food than what we're seeing in the food created by competing brands. Animal digest is a common ingredient used in pet foods. As defined by the Association of American Feed Control Officials, digest is produced by the chemical or enzymatic hydrolysis of clean animal tissue that has not undergone decomposition.
These animal tissues may not include hair, horns, teeth, hooves, and feathers, with the exclusion of trace amounts that are unavoidable even after acceptable processing methods. According to the United States Food and Drug Administration FDAa digest is an additive that has been treated with heat, enzymes, or also acids to produce a concentrated product intended as a natural flavoring.
Chicken flavored food must be flavored with chicken digest. Source: Wikipedia. These are minimum recommended levels. AAFCO regulations tell us an adult maintenance cat food should contain a minimum of 1. AAFCO regulations also tell us that pet food ingredients should be listed according to weight — heaviest to lightest. So, based on the above, in both dog foods F Is For Fiend - Famous Monsters - In The Night!!! cat foods the calcium ingredient should be listed before the salt ingredient more calcium by Symphonie Nr.
4 E-moll Op. 98 - Johannes Brahms, Sir Simon Rattle, Berliner Philharmoniker - Symphon is required for both dog food and cat food than salt by weight. A pet brand shouldn't have to trade off of raw feeding to get people to notice their new kibble food.
And they should not market themselves as raw dog food when they are selling kibble. Source: Screenshot of BeaglesandBargains. I became interested alternatives to manufactured dog kibble when my dog Houdi was diagnosed with pancreatitis around age 6. Unfortunately the cost to have someone with knowledge create a diet for him was in the thousands of dollars and I was not confident that I could create a balanced diet for him myself.
I am now more than ever determined to do better for my remaining dogs. Thanks for giving me a place to start. My cat loves loves loves that food and I mix it with ground raw so that he gets a great diet. Weruva does make a line for dogs. What do you think about Fromm Dog Food? He was on Royal Canin, but i got him off of it and switched to their wet food and did not like it at all.
The jury is out on the Clean Label Project. Today, the only fish my dogs get is raw sardines. As far as I can tell from reviewing the results of the CleanLabelProject.
Do you know if there has been any testing done for raw diets? My preference is actually for a raw food diet for dogs. When forced to recommend kibble, I like Ziwi Peak because I know dogs that have benefited greatly from that food. Can you please help me understand the bones, and organs part?
To be clear, Wellness is a kibble diet, not a raw diet. I think their marketing is Zawsze sam wybierasz - Various - TVP Kompilacja Vol.1 a lot of people who are new to raw. Hi thank you for enlightening me with your page. I have two little morkies who are extremely itchy. I feed them wellness raw because I thought I would help with their yeast.
I am full time college student and worker. What do you think the best kibble is for a healthy, active 90 herding dog bouvier. He is 5 years old. Thank you!
Thank you, Kimberly. Will start doing that! Hi, Kimberly. I know kibble is not your thing so really appreciate your review. Thank you so much for what, in my opinion, is NOT a biased opinion as long as one has accepted the fact that raw is far better than not raw for our precious dogs.
This product -Core RawRev-is pretty expensive. Based on your detailed review, I will not be stretching my budget to buy this food for my dog. Thank you for the biased review of Wellness Core. Facebook Instagram RSS. This post may contain affiliate links.
