Whole Dog Journal's 2008 Dry Dog Food Review
Whole Dog Journal has upped the ante for 2008's dry dog food review by holding pet food manufactureres to a higher standard.
Transparency. Thatís what the pet food recalls of early 2007 taught us to value in a pet food company. In the aftermath of that event, the ideal response a concerned owner could get from a pet food company was a statement about where the companyís foods were made, where their ingredients came from, and what they were doing to ensure their products were safe. In reality, many companies stonewalled, insisting that their products were safe but refusing to offer any corroborating evidence! Even faced with grievously sick cats or dogs, many owners could not get any useful information from the pet food companies whose products they used. Thatís when I decided that Whole Dog Journalís 2008 dog food reviews would include only those products that met our usual selection criteria and met at least a minimum standard of transparency.
