For most pet parents, being informed on nutrition usually means diligently reading labels. But what AREN'T the labels telling you? We looked at one of the leading brands of kibble and here's what we found.
The front of the bag features an image of a delicious, juicy chicken breast accompanied by the words "with real chicken". Flip the bag over to check the ingredients list and if you look closely enough, you'll see the truth.
Ingredients in dog foods are listed in descending order by net weight. On this leading kibble (which pictures and mentions "real chicken" prominently on the front of the package) chicken is the 7th ingredient listed. Before that, you'll find meat and bone meal and poultry by-product meal.
