Hi Patricia,

Have to agree with you here. Very concerning that a company making dog food writes on their website in regard to taurine “Essential nutrient as dogs cannot synthesize themselves” (accessed on Stella and Chewy website 1/8/2023). Reminds me when the “nutritionist” (the person’s degree as I recall was in marketing), for a company told me not to be concerned that the declared Vit D levels in their diets were below Min because dogs can synthesize their own if given enough sunlight. I was instructed to open my curtains to provide a sunbeam for them to sit in. Unlike taurine Vit D is essential in dogs.

Once you start seeing these things you just can’t unsee them.
