Thanks Ginger, I didn't see Halo listed so I will assume it's still safe to use. I hope so. This is not surprising for some of those listed.

Not surprised at all to see Science Diet listed. It irritates me that so many vets push that crap.

Our poor animals are fed a study diet of crap--what a disgrace. Luckily my brands aren't on that dreaded list. Thanks

Noted with thanks for the awareness and also thank you to Deb S. for the forward.
I am lucky I guess, as the small town I live in has a plant where they make dog food, and we know where the products, chicken, turkey or beef come from local farmers, the name of the food is Incana and is a balanced and organic food.
