Dogs Require A Quality Protein Source
Feeding your pet is big business
It’s become common knowledge that federal guidelines require that manufacturers list their ingredients by order of weight. What few realize is that many manufacturers list their protein source in it’s “wet”, raw state where as much as 76% of the weight is just water, pushing that ingredient to the top of the list. When the protein is processed into the “meal” state in the order to be put into the dog food, it becomes, on average, 5 times lighter, and should in all reality, be listed as the 4th or 5th ingredient.
Earthblend uses only the best quality chicken and turkey available, weighed after it is processed into meal form (which simply means that the water has been removed) and remains the #1 and #2 components in our recipe.
Your dog’s health depends on the correct amount of a quality protein source…Don’t be fooled by deceptive marketing campaigns.
Same great formula now even better!
