    Thanks for the reply Hound Dog Mom…love the profile pic! I guess what I meant to say was that I was surprised that so many premium diets on your list contain meal as a main ingredient. I look for freeze dried meats in the kibble I sell. There are only a few that do and I hope that changes in the future! I believe sweet potato and yams do not carry the risks that white potato does. I hope you reconsider Great Life in your future listings as I have found their ingredient list and quality pretty tough to beat. I was a retailer during what another member called a silent recall. I didnt see it as that as I was immediately called and was told to give all my clients a heads up that there “may” be a problem, they also refunded anyone that wanted to return product as well as what I had on my shelves. No pets were affected but they were being proactive before a real problem or recall surfaced. It didnt last long and this was the first and only time it had occurred.
    Great site by the way! Glad I joined!

    This may not be the appropriate place but I notice alot of the foods that made your “top dog” list contain meal. pea, and potato. I am a pet food retailer and research the foods I recommend to my clients very very carefully. Of course it didnt hurt to have a dog training client that was 30 years in R and D in the pet food industry..ha/ha. I prefer a freeze dried meat as at least I know that it can be of “human grade” quality. I believe meal is not for human consumption and doesnt fall under the same regulatory practices in manufacturing. Would love your feedback on this. Also what is your opinion on the research on the use of white potato in pet foods. Thanks!
