I was hoping to ask you guys some solid advice on what dog food to feed Peanuts. I've decided to switch her to dog food because of its convenience. She still drinks milk during noon time but I'd really want to do away with it.
So, I went to this Agricultural Supply as they were selling dog food and asked them what most dog owners buy from them.
The nice sales lady said Optima Beef Puppy Meal was the one mostly sought after. When I gave a piece of kibble to Peanuts, she ate it up signifying that she does like it. I also added a spoonful of it in her dinner and she enjoyed it too much.
Now, here's the problem. As I was searching for information on its primary ingredients, I come across the 2008 recall of US-made Optima sent to China. During such year, multiple dog food companies recalled their products due to aflatoxin ( which was as you've guessed it, guilty of killing more than 30 dogs during such time).
Here are two references I've read. I was unable to search for the specific article because my eye was acting up again.
Any thoughts or recommendations? Although I will be giving here meat and rice like the usual, I want to have the dog food option. Thanks in advance.
By the way, incase you were wondering what kind of ingredients they have on this particular dog food. Here it is:
ground yellow corn, wheat mill run, beef meal, soybean meal, animal fat(preserved with mixed tocopherols -source of vitamin E),
Poultry By-product Digest, tomato pomace, salt, choline chloride, potassium chloride, Zinc oxide, ferrous sulfate, vitamin A acetate,
D-activated animal supplement, vitamin B12 supplement, manganous oxide, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, niacin, calcium pantothenate,
pyridoxine hydrochloride, folic acid, biotin, copper sulfate, choline chloride, calcium iodate, sodium selenite.
