Meat is nothing out of the ordinary to feed your dog, but when it’s labelled as a “meat meal”, that’s when it’s time to be suspicious. TPLO Info says that these are unspecified products, but upon further inspection, you’ll find that they’re usually low-quality, expired, or infected meat. With almost no quality control, these meat meals serve as repulsive fillers with virtually no protein.
Artificial food colouring
While colours add nothing but fun to human food, they aren’t as great for our four-legged counterparts. Artificial food colourings are actually added as a dog food ingredient to make it look more visually appealing to the ones buying it – pet parents!
Since dogs don’t care what colour their food is, we recommend sticking with food that is naturally coloured. It’s also good to note that food dyes like Blue 2, Red 40, and Yellow 5 and 6 are connected to hyperacidity and extreme allergic reactions. With that being said, bad ingredients in dog food like artificial food colouring should be avoided.
