Well, I'll thank this sweet SD employee for at least answering my question, as its one I think many have wanted to know.

I also appreciate that they took the time to answer politely.

Doesn't change my opinion on the product or the company. Certainly doesn't make me any less angry about their totally "unbiased" contribution to the vet community, WHO, btw, recently made the oh-so lovely (nearly unanimous) vote to make “avoid feeding” the official position statement on raw for the AVMA.

Maybe SD wouldn't have such a bad reputation, if they kept their fingers out of everyone else's business big grin

Or, you know, did studies that ACTUALLY benefit the health and well-being of animals, rather than determine within their own product line which of their kibbles will kill your dog least quickly.

Remind me again why there's still corn in cat kibble?

Mulder, cats are scientifically classified as obligate cornivores.

Isn't that weird then that somehow high starch, high carbs, low moisture diets with processed corn meal as the primary ingredient is considered "healthy" for them?

I do think that they are just trying to follow the money trail since customers are starting to actually research nutrition instead of blindly following their vets advice which in a lot of cases has no merit.

Regardless, I think there are a lot of mid-grade foods out there that are probably cheaper then SD without corn/wheat/soy that are just not as easily accessible like healthwise, whole earth farms, nutri source, hi tek naturals, etc.
