Disappointed by latest ingredients discovery
This food claims to benefit dogs health in a lot of different ways and was the very reason I was trailing this on my Toy Poodle x Havanese...however I discovered that they use BHA and BHT as the antioxidants in the formula. They don't state this specifically in the ingredients - only written as 'antioxidants'
I am health conscious about my dogs and BHA and BHT are artificial chemicals used to preserve foods and prevent oxidization of fats and oils (hence the word antioxidant) these chemicals considered to be carcinogenic.
Unfortunately I won'...t be purchasing Optimum's dry food products again unless they change out the BHA and BHT for natural antioxidants. I have thrown the current bag into the bin. The 100gm trays of wet food for dogs by Optimum was also a disappointment as they gave my dogs diarrhea and they hated them. Noses turned up. Looks like Optimum won't be in my shopping trolley for a long time!
Purchased in March 2019 at Big W Retail Stores for $17.00.
The packaging isnt recyclable ??
My dog eats it, and didnt suffer from any of the skin rashes that other dog owners reported.. but its 2013 guys and were a first world and (fingers crossed) progressive and eco responsible population .. so I'd like to know why Optimum isn't using recyclable packaging and wont be buying it again until they do.
Non recyclable packaging
