I have a dog in the early stages of congestive heart failure, and I’d like to make sure his food has a low or at least moderate sodium content. He eats 4Health salmon & sweet potato now (canned and dry). But I can’t seem to find any info on who manufactures it so I can ask them about the sodium content. I’ve seen people mention that it’s either Diamond or Ainsworth, but I don’t see any reference to 4Health on either company’s website. I’m considering switching him to another brand that has given me their sodium content, but he really likes 4Health and has done well on it. Any ideas?

Hi Flossie –
4Health is a Tractor Supply owned brand but they outsource the manufacturing. The grain-inclusive dry food is manufactured by Diamond, the grain-free dry food is manufactured by Ainsworth and the canned food is manufactured by Simmons. Don’t even bother trying to contact Tractor Supply’s customer service with questions about 4Health – they’re useless. For the salmon and potato dry food I’d contact Diamond directly. I’ve contacted Diamond in the past with questions about specific nutrient values in various 4Health formulas and they’ve always been very helpful and quick to respond.
Thanks! I wish more companies would just list the sodium content on the package, since the ones I’ve contacted had the info readily available; I guess it’s just not really a concern for most people. I’ll contact Diamond and Simmons right away!
