Zoey is doing well on this vet food so guess I'll stick with it!!! She loves her frozen green beans for snack and has some treats that help with her teeth and breath!!! She probably would eat most anything too!! She's a rescue and for her first years probably had to scrounge around for some food, no telling what she ate!!!

If that is what she is doing good on, then stick to it. It is like my cat. I don't particularly like the Blue foods (most the cat wouldn't touch and I don't think Cassie cared that much for it, either), but the only thing Orzo can eat is the Blue mature. So I am not changing that. He also only pretty much eats certain canned foods and I don't think those are without those kind of cans. I did try him on raw or home cooked, but that cat just doesn't want that. Cassie is another story. She will eat just about anything.

I agree, I don't know if they will be honest with me. The vet in the mountains put her on this food for her allergies and weight maintenance and she's done really well.

Sandi, I don't know how you would find out if the food you are feeding has that in their cans. I am at the point I don't trust what any of them say.

That information won't be listed on the cans in ingredients. It depends on what the cans are lined with (which might not look like lining) that leaches it.

A very interesting read, Jeanne. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Phoenix is the only one here who ever gets canned, and it's a prescription food from the vet, so I would like to think it is safe???

One never knows though, do you!

Thanks, Zoey does eat canned food through the vet, I'm going to contact the company as I don't see anything listed on the can.

I think I will stay away from canned dog food in that case. Of course, I give her green beans and they probably have the stuff, too.
