Dogs should be fed with human grade dog food.
When we say “Almost Human Grade” Ingredients, we mean it!
Quality food is significantly important to the well-being of those that consume it. Because food is so significant to the well-being of those that consume it, and because if not sourced, processed and handled properly food can become a serious risk.
Many in pet food and most in regulatory perceive human grade pet food as an extravagance. But actually, it’s not an extravagance at all. Human grade pet food is – very simply – just food. Human grade pet food is food as we know food specific for a cat or dog (containing the nutrients as needed by cats and/or dogs). Human grade pet food IS NOT smoke and mirrors feed making consumers believe it is food. It is food that has been sourced, processed and handled properly…it is food as we know food, providing our pets with the nutrients they require.
The ‘truth’ is, commercial pet food began as human grade. The first canned pet food in the U.S. was Ken-L Ration, the dog food was made from USDA inspected and approved meat; horse meat. From a historical website documenting the town Ken-L Ration was manufactured in, we are told the meat used in the pet food went through the same inspection process as human food. The website states the food was manufactured according to the Pure Food Law, the early version of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. Even advertising of the pet food stated “US government inspected”.
