This Food Additive Pushed My Rottie Into Liver Failure - Don't Let It Happen to You

Story at-a-glance

*Fish is a popular ingredient in commercial pet food; unfortunately, most fish is contaminated with mercury, industrial chemicals and toxic preservatives

*A recent study revealed that many commercial dog and cat foods contain high levels of mercury, especially formulas containing fish

*Much of the fish meal used in pet food is preserved with ethoxyquin, a cancer-causing agent

*My recommendation is to avoid feeding fish to your dog or cat, with the exception of sardines packed in water

*Be sure to supplement your pet’s diet with a high-quality omega-3 fatty acid like krill oil
