Due to the recalls of 2007, the Whole Dog Journal also asked for some additional info on the making of the foods. Several brands did not
make the list because they would not disclose the source of their food or the origin of their manufacturer
. Here are some of the names that did not make the list
and are well known are: Blue Buffalo, Newman's Own Organics, Royal Canin, Solid Gold, and Timberwolf.
Some of the foods that did
make the list are Canine Caviar, Canidae, Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance Organic, Diamond, Eagle Pack, Fromm, Natura (includes Karma, California Natural & Innova), Nutro Ultra, Nature's Variety Prairie, Wysong, and Wellness.
I already posted the next part in another topic, but I'll repost it here:
If you really want some good commercial food info, you should check out the February 2008 issue of the Whole Dog Journal
. It just became available and it has a lot of information about the good foods, and even their sources. The no-grain foods have gotten so big that they are doing a completely seperate article on those next month. You can subscribe to the Whole Dog Journal for $20/year or you can pay a one-time price of $10 just to get the article off their web site. Since it is copyrighted, we can't copy it here, but it looks like a great article.
