    A couple days ago, I questioned Weurva not being on the Editors Choice then was told it was made by Evangers.

    Could people post who makes what food? Would be nice to have that list.

    Weruva Human Style is made in Thailand.

    Sandy: Thailand and not Diamond, correct?

    Yes, Human Style in Thailand, not Diamond. I haven’t looked into their Kobe line.

    It’s the Kobe line that I understand is made be Evanger’s.

    I have a can sitting on the kitchen counter that I’m afraid to open.

    Pretty consistently I’ve found that Evanger’s does private party labeling for Party Animal, Wild Calling, some Weruva and Great Life. I would suspect there are others.

    OK, this article is older now, but I find myself referring to it constantly: http://truthaboutpetfood.com/who-makes-what-in-pet-food

    I fed several cases of Addiction before I found out it was canned at Evangers. I do like it and the dogs didn’t have any issues. I want to try some Cocolicious too.

    Thanks for the link, Betsy. I commented & asked Susan if there was a more current list.

    Betsy, I tried a can of the Kobe style and didn’t like it for my dogs. It gave them some digestive issues, can’t remember what now but at the time I decided to stick with the Human style. Of course, now that I know that Evanger’s makes them all the better.

    I didn’t know Evangers canned By Nature. I’ll cross them off my list.

    Hey, guys! So, I have a question – can I share the link from here, the “The Truth About Dog Food” one on another, non-EC forum here? It would be in response to Shasta220’s question on what all Diamond makes. But I know we can’t share CONTENT from EC, but is the link ok to share, since it’s an external source…?

    I tried Koby too and the same thing happened. Most of their formulas are chicken so not on our menu here for sure.

    Is there a possibility that Dog Food Advisor could give some thought to having a section on the site with a list of Manufacturers and what foods they produce. It may be a daunting task on top of everything else you all do which I am eternally grateful for. Just figured I throw it out the question out there.

    Thanks HDM. I know that usually we’re told to go the the food site or try to find the info on line which I have often done but, usually, to no avail. They are apparently very good at keeping this crucial information a secret. What galls me is the fact that they know there are bad things going on or they wouldn’t be trying to hide who manufacturers there food and what plant it’s coming from. It’s exhausting. If they were proud of their food, proud of their ingredients, why not also be proud of manufacturing, etc.

    Anyway, sorry to make more work for you guys but it would be such a great addition to this already fabulous site.

    I would also like to see this happen. Great suggestion!

    Thanks NectarMom. It’s a question I find that we are always posting about the different foods. Who makes…..such and such….. Most of the times it takes so long to find out or you never find out. I don’t feed any food that won’t tell me who makes them. Ridiculous that anyone would. Anyway, I’m thrilled that HDM likes it and can make it happen. YEY!

    I think I might have missed what you ended up feeding your dogs when you stopped feeding Brother’s. Has the eye staining gone away?

    Hi Nectarmom. It’s nice knowing your still around. I hadn’t seen too many of your posts lately. My girls are doing better than I could possibly have imagined. A number of months back I did the complete transition to raw. All bad breath, gas, tear staining, goopy runny eyes has been history for quite some time. Their teeth are all incredibly white, I wasn’t expecting that they could get whiter since I’ve always brushed their teeth. Their hair (fur) is shinny soft and they all smell kinda sweet. It’s not their shampoo because I use soapless shampoos with no dyes or perfumes because of Katie and my allergies. The three of them have always been chow hounds but this is really ridiculous. They lick their bowls clean and leave them like they came out of the dishwasher. Lola who was getting a little chunky has lost some weight. Well, actually they all have on the raw. Lola was up to 6 lbs. maybe a little more, she’s now at 5 lbs. where she should be. Katie was a little over 7 lbs. she’s now at 6 lbs. where she should be, and Hannah was up to 8.5 lbs. and now weighs 7.3 lbs. Vet is delighted with all their weights and wanted to know what I’d done differently. So all is good here. Oh, they the water that they drink is from the tap at home, we have a whole house filtration system. I never thought it was the water. I always suspected it was the food for it to be happening to all three of them even though some were posting on the other site that it was clogged tear duct, hair in eyes, etc. For all three in both eyes, couldn’t be. I gave up the discussions, dropped the site, listen to the posters and moved to raw. I do add unrefined coconut oil, sardine oil (3 times a week, or sardines packed in water), organic fruits and veggies. No commercially made treats. How are your dogs doing? Still tear stained?

    Glad to hear your babies are much better. After we resolved the water issue the red staining from licking went away but we still have eye staining and they scratch and lick their feet every now and then which drives me nuts. I edit pictures that I take of them on face book because of the horrid eye staining. We tried Darwin’s Raw among other Raw avenues and 2 out of 4 got pancreatitis so I am very afraid of trying raw again. Though I still worry about the eye staining and do not know for sure if it is environmental or food. It is so hard to tell but I know during Winter we still had feet chewing but not as much.

    Are you still feeding Brothers? When I first started with the raw feeding I was concerned about the fat content but it doesn’t seem to bother them in the least. I’ve been feeding them Primal, Answers, Stella & Chewys, Darwins. I used to feed non raw THK but Katie became allergic to alfalfa so I had to stop that which was too bad because I really like the company. Where can I see pics of your dogs? My girls are my avatar and Hannah is the pic on my Facebook page. Dori Hassett on Facebook.

    Dori I am still feeding Brother’s to all but one of mine since she has developed a chicken intolerance or Poultry. I am going to look you up on FB so if you get a friends request it is me ( Jennifer) 🙂

    My girls were on Darwin’s for 8 months with no issues then one of the reps for Darwin’s said we could introduce Duck and when we did 2 of mine got Pancreatitis and hundreds of dollars later we dropped Darwin’s off our menu and went with Hare Today and one of mine kept throwing it up so I just gave up on Raw. I don’t want anymore of them sick and I do not need anymore vet bills.

    Nectarmom…tnat is because duck is higher fat content. My crew can not eat it alone either and only in small amounts.

    Melissa, This is what was told to me by Darwin’s customer service and they even list their Duck meals as their lowest fat. I always knew Duck was a fatty meat but I figured Darwin’s must know something that I didn’t with their duck.

    NectarMom. That’s so odd that they would say that to you because when I placed my first order with Darwins they told me the fat to protein ratio would be too high. I had been telling them about my dogs. It didn’t matter to me because I told them one of my dogs can’t eat any foul so I wouldn’t be ordering it anyway. Anyway, Duck is high in fat.

    Nectarmom. I just got off their site and you are absolutely right. The duck is listed as having the lowest fat. I don’t understand it. When I read your first post about Darwin’s I immediately thought it was the duck but now I’m not so sure. Darwin’s is a food that I’ve been using but I think until we get things cleared up with Hannah and her high liver levels I’ll sparingly feed it to the other two cancel my subscription with them. It has the highest protein of all the foods I feed.
