Is Dog Food Really Filled With Euthanized Companion Animals Like Cats and Dogs?
What really is in that can of dog food? You know it’s some kind of meat. It looks like meat. Smells kind of almost meaty. But what kind of meat is it?
How about the kibble? What is in a cup of those cute little shaped dry food? It’s mystery meat, otherwise known as “meat meal.”
The next time you buy your dog some food – be it dry or canned – read the ingredients. You’ll find “meat meal” in there. What is it?
If you have a weak stomach and tend to get nauseated easily from reading about really gross things, stop reading now. If you’re masochistically curious like me, read on. Don’t say I didn’t warn you though.
Meat meal is a major ingredient in dry dog (and cat) food. It contains (among other things): urine, feces, body parts normally not eaten like hair, intestines, and bones. Should I keep going? Meat meal also has spoiled meat from the supermarket (packaging included), road kill, diseased animals…the list goes on and on and on. I can’t anymore – I’m going to get sick.
Now you and I know that the companies who make pet food are not going to admit that they put dog and cat meat in dog and cat food – essentially turning our pets into cannibals. They would never own up to it because that would be bad for business. But the evidence is just too hard for them to hide all the time.
When your pet dies at the vet, the vet sends the body to the rendering plant. And yes, they are legally allowed to do this. Disgusting, but true.
