Last evening I watched an incredible documentary on the pet food industry. This film, produced by Kohl Harrington, attempts to uncover the truth about the food that we have been feeding our dogs and cats. I say attempts because it appears he is thwarted on many fronts by pet food manufacturers, AAFCO, and the FDA. It appears that the regulations we assume protect our pets from "bad things" being put in their food, do not really exist. The marketing and labeling of pet food is regulated but not the quality of the ingredients that the food contains.
Susan Thexton, a pet food consumer advocate, established a website at www.truthaboutpetfood.com. that is loaded with information on the industry that makes and distributes the food which we give our "furry kids".
Since knowledge is power, I suggest every responsible pet parent who wants to ensure their loving companion is getting the highest quality food and not just hype, watch this film. It is available through amazon.com and also check out Susan's website. If you are like me, you will be angry and shocked to learn the truth about the pet food industry, but this awareness will empower you to do something about it.
