I feed my lab Merrick and I just looked on the ingredient list. ItKibble that contains "natural flavors" in their ingredient list is usually a sprayed-on flavoring.
I didn't realize that.... thanks Suzan. I'm still going to try to switch him,Dogs usually do not get sick from Salmonella. It's more of a threat to humans.
Grandma Lucy's has garlic pretty high on the ingredients list. I believe it is on the list of things NOT to feed a dog.
I've been feeding Grandam Lucy's and yes you are right when I prepare it I can smell the garlic....... but my malt has no issues with this food.
I also feed Grandma Lucy's and its a great food (in my opinion). The garlic is a strong smell but as Suzan said, that's because is freeze-dried. Garlic is also a natural tick repellant so that has been a great bonus to this food since we have annual wars with ticks.Garlic in huge amounts is not good for dogs. It is a blood thinner. The amount of garlic in Grandma Lucy's is small. The reason why you smell it is because it's freeze-dried, which means the smell is more concentrated.
Garlic is one of the most beneficial foods. It's an antiviral, antibacterial, blood-pressure lowering immune booster.
The pet food is great but the company itself is strange. I have tried calling the toll free number on the bag and it says it is not in service and I have emailed them a question 3X with no response.I was just thinking I never got the sample of Grandma Lucy's that I called about weeks ago.:huh: Anyone else get theirs?
