|I have a book called "Food Pets Die for" by Ann Martin. It explains how certain companies that use unspecified meat often buy euthanized animals from rendering plants.. I didn't mean to alarm you, or supply false information, but usually when a company refuses to specify the types of meat they use, that is generally the first thing I think of. But the book by Ann Martin offers a lot of insight into the pet food industry. I don't have the book in front of me currently, but I know a large number of brands tested positive for sodium pentabarbitol (sp?)
They may or may not be guilty (I think I remember them mentioned in the book), but still, I just don't trust any company that won't give up the information on their ingredients willingly. Meat by-product could be anything from road kill to slaughter house leftovers.
The price of Sportmix will reflect its quality, and usually brands that offer a large variety of specified foods will be a little steeper in price. Personally, 4Health would be worth the sacrifice, but I do understand that people can't always sacrifice money.
Another brand I would look into is PureBalance. It is carried by Wal-mart and generally is an alright food, and very good quality at an affordable price.
