UK Pet Food is Non-compliant with EU Standards on Mineral Composition — 4 Comments

  1. Thank you for writing this Michael. It is a terrible state of affairs when the laws are there, but no one bothers to comply. I really do believe that once Brexit happens our companion & livestock animals’ lives will be rendered much, much worse.

    Right now I feel as if I am between a rock & a hard place with cat foods.

    Just one of my two cats will eat the ready made raw food. The othe r puss will not recognise raw, as food.

    I t really is a confounding dilemma when you are trying to do your best, and the lazy, greedy, manufacturers & vets are only there to strip your wallet and eventually poison your companion animal.

    I include vets in this because it is vets who develop prescription foods when working in R & D in the pet food industry and guilt trip customers into buying the poisonous garbage.

    • I have the same problem. I buy manufactured cat food but don’t like it. It concerns me. Making raw is tricky. I’d like to make raw. Thanks for commenting Jane. Hope you are well.

  2. I hope that more people realize that pet food is causing many of the health issues and diseases.

    I met a woman yesterday with a tiny Pomeranian mix, who had scratched a large part of his chest raw. I asked what she was feeding him, and she said she switched to Science Diet a few months ago. I said that he may have an allergic reaction to something in the food. She had no idea about this possibility.

    I also suggested coconut oil for his skin, and she didn’t know anything about the benefits.

    I asked her to keep in touch, and let me know how he’s doing.

    • God that is horrible. Poor dog. My life experience tells me that the pet food manufacturers are run by cynical men in suits whose sole objective is profit and if the products they make are not the best for cat health they don’t care. They do the minimum for standards to maximise profit.
