I was asked to start a new thread to discuss pet food. As I have stated, I am not an expert but have spent considerable time researching and some training on the subject. I welcome discussion, questions and ideas. If I don't know the answer, I will strive to obtain it for you.
I am putting a disclaimer on this as I am not an expert, these may be my opinions only but I have formed those opinions through research.
Here is my first thought about labels and what they MAY mean:
1. Chicken Dog Food - ingredients are at least 95% chicken before water added
2. Chicken Dinner for Dogs - ingredients are 25-95% chicken before water added
3. Dog Food With Chicken - ingredients are at least 3% chicken before water added (yes only 3%!)
4. Chicken Flavor Dog Food - no minimum percentage of chicken required, only that there is enough chicken to taste it!
YES, marketing HYPE!!!!!!!
