Here are just some of the common ingredients used in dental chews by big-name companies, if you knew about it, you definitely would NOT want it in there.
#1: Propylene Glycol
Cited as a pet food “moisturizer,” this harmful additive has been linked to deadly blood diseases as well as seizures and tremors, yet it continues to pop up in pet product after product.
It is used to absorb extra water and maintain moisture in certain medicines, cosmetics, and pet food products. It is a solvent for food colors and flavors, and in the paint and plastics industries. Propylene glycol is also used to create artificial smoke or fog used in fire-fighting training and in theatrical productions.
#2: Sulphur Dioxide (Preservative)
We have all heard about preservatives and how in small amounts they aren’t dangerous.
But what about dog foods?
They use some of the most hardcore preservatives, mainly because the meat they are using is downgraded, sometimes even rotten. Without the preservative, they wouldn’t last 5 days.
If you look on the back of the pack and you see the words ‘preservatives’ move on to another brand.
Otherwise known as sugar.
Dogs process sucrose in the same way we humans do and thus is a big no no ingredient.
As in the case of humans, when too much sucrose is ingested by dogs it leads to a host of issues such as weight gain, inflammation, and diabetes which can lead to loss of eyesight and premature death.
When you think of corn as an ingredient, it doesn’t sound too bad.
But the corn in your pet’s food is usually downgraded and not fit for human consumption.
This means it could contain traces of mold and some toxins that will make it through the treating process. Most dry foods contain around 40% grains/corn and only 25% protein.
Considering corn is not an essential nutrient for dogs, why is this ratio so out of whack.
You wouldn’t feed a Child a corn-based diet, so why would you feed it to a dog?
Salt is usually added to supermarket dog treats to put back some flavoring after the high heat treating they go through during production.
Why do dogs need Salt in their treats? Well, they don't.
