Arrogant companion animal Ph.D. nutritionists criticised by pet food consumer expert Susan Thixton — 8 Comments

    • Does anyone understand cat food ingredients? I agree with you. I’d like to see the list of ingredients in larger typeface and in plainer English 😉

      • Only because I learned to read them.
        One good rule is the longer the list of ingredients they less natural the product can be. Keeping in mind that in pet foods that list will include additional supplements of minerals and vitamins to make the food a complete source of nutrition.
        One thing many pet owners overlook and perhaps because of my life with horses and every horse owner has a certain fixation on their horses poop is what’s coming out the other end of your pet.
        Aside from special diets massive amounts can indicate large amounts of fillers. Extreme room clearing may indicate ingredients that weren’t meant or can’t be digested by the cat. Too hard or too soft.

      • Anyone can go online, and find their pet food. Then click on “ingredients” and ENLARGE, then print out.

        However, even if you can READ the ingredients, you won’t be any wiser…..because you don’t know what they mean.

        You need a resource like the Alphabetized Ingredient Analysis by Dr. Lisa Newman, online at PetFoodRatings. Prepare to be shocked!!!
