Ultra Trace Minerals in Kibble

Mercola Healthy Pets just posted an article on problems with ultra trace minerals in kibble. Just wanted to pass this on to the kibble feeders.

There are also problems with feeding fresh - as many people don't go through the effort of working with a pet nutritionist and ensuring that their food is extremely well balanced. Articles with a clear agenda of 'kibble is evil, feed fresh', in my opinion, don't really help the dialogue.

Bottom-line - do the best you can, make the best decisions you can, and be proactive, but don't change what you're doing if it's working for you. I'm not going to sit here and convince you that feeding kibble is amazing, wonderful, the absolute best you can possibly do - and that you're doing the wrong thing by not feeding kibble.

Information like this that says 'it's there, it's scary... but we don't know if it matters - but anyway it's the least of concerns about feeding kibble', for me (and it's my own personal opinion) create fear with no real backing.

I agree that there are definitely problems feeding fresh as well and if someone does not want to work with a nutritionist then they should not do it. However, I do like to keep informed on what is going on in the pet food industry for all types of food...kibble, canned, freeze dried and raw. Thousands of pets died in the melamine pet food recall in 2007 including my aunt’s cat. A three year old dog of a friend recently died from the vitamin d overdose recall. It is good to be aware of what is going on. Everybody needs to decide what is best for their pet. However, if the dog is itching, scratching and having GI upset, perhaps it is time to switch things up.
