Wow! Just Wow!! I feel like banging my head down on the desk. I had believed Merrick to be a quality food. Honestly, if I could, I’d move to the Great Northwest and just go salmon fishing everyday since he LOVES salmon.
I need a grain free and poultry free quality food (with no Chinese ingredients) if anyone has any recommendations. I am going to check on those previously suggested, Honest Kitchen, etc., but finding something without grain and any form of poultry protein is difficult.
Thank you both for your replies and recommendations. And yes, you are absolutely correct…I sincerely wish all ingredients and sources had to be on the bag. I just tried to join the Editor’s Choice forum but keep getting an error message. I’ll try again later. In the interim, I’ve purchased a bag of grain free and poultry free Castor & Pollux that has good reviews. I also have about half a bag of Merrick Grain Free Pork and Sweet Potato. My dog doesn’t seem to be overly fond of either but he’s going to just have to get used to it! LOL If I sprinkle a bit of canned salmon on his food along with a tablespoon of pumpkin puree he’ll gobble it.
Again, I just find it astounding that companies are still using ingredients of Chinese origin and are not making that known on their bags.
You are correct in stating it may not be a true “honesty” issue regarding the Chinese ingredients. Nonetheless, given the events of recent years related to Chinese ingredients in dog food, I do believe it to be a “lie by omission.” I would never knowingly feed my dog any food containing Chinese ingredients. Yes, they were “honest” when I called and questioned things, but really, that info should be on the bag so consumers can make an educated decision regarding what they will and will not feed their animals. That is my opinion.
