Debunking Pet Food Myths

Myth: Cereal grains are bad for your pets.

Fact: Animals can utilize energy from grains just fine. And there is less of a chance of allergies from grain than from chicken and diary.

Myth: Foods labeled “premium” or “gourmet” are better for your pet.

Fact: Products with these labels are not required to contain higher-quality or better nutritional ingredients.

Myth: Cat and dog foods are the same.

Fact: There is nothing more wrong. Cats require specific nutrients, namely taurine, that are not found in dog food.

Myth: Products with “meat meal” should be avoided.

Fact: The word “meal” means that water has been removed. However, meat meal may not be as digestible as chicken or lamb meal.
