Many dogs are becoming allergic to lamb and/or beef. Solid Gold Health Products for Pets uses bison and ocean fish as its source of meat protein in its new food. The protein is 22% for the adult formula and 28% for the puppy. Our non-allergic grains are brown rice and millet. We use no gluten, which cause allergies. We use no soybeans/lecithin, wheat, corn or sunflower oil — the allergy causing ingredients in dog food. We never use animal/poultry fats, which contribute to heart disease. We use canola and flaxseed oils for their health giving properties. However, since there is no category for oils in the ingredient listings, we must say our oils are fats, even though we use no fats. Oils are liquid at room temperature. Fats are solid at room temperature. Fats don’t melt until 120 degrees. Dogs’ temperatures don’t reach 120 degrees. So the body pushes around the globs of rancid animal fat until it gets to the lower intestines where it does the most damage.

Crude Protein, Min 22% Crude Fat, Min 9%* Crude Fiber, Max 4% Moisture, Max 10% Calories per cup 364 * – There is no animal fat added to our foods; we use unsaturated vegetable, nut and seed oils for their medicinal qualities and the beneficial, essential fatty acids they contain. Animal fat is saturated fat and can contribute to blocked arteries, mal-absorption of nutrients in the intestines, cholesterol problems and reduced life expectancy. Dogs with pancreas, liver and kidney problems, have particular difficulties processing saturated, animal fats. They do very well with oils.
