Dog food testing showed alarming results.
We initially sent in over twenty-five different dog foods for testing; premium, specialty, dry and wet brands, and the copper levels where alarmingly varied and excessive. Testing was conducted by the Michigan State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory.
Does your dog food contain toxic coppers?
Below are a few examples of how man-made coppers may appear on your dog food bag.
We source and test every ingredient.
We sourced farm-raised salmon vs. wild-caught salmon. We found that the farm-raised fish contained 129.2 ppm (parts per million) of chelated copper or copper sulfate, an alarming increase over the wild-caught salmon which contained a mere 1.6 ppm of natural copper.
Do you want copper sulfate in your dog’s food?
Caustic Powder, with the main ingredient being copper sulfate, is a dressing powder and blood coagulant for use on certain types of wounds, cuts, and abrasions. This caustic and drying agent is often used for slow-healing lesions and excessive granulated tissue (proud flesh). Copper sulfate and other derivatives of copper are also used to control undesirable algae in lakes and ponds. An application consists of spreading copper sulfate crystals or powder along problematic areas or spraying a slurry across the water surface. Also, the most often used remedy for footrot in cattle is copper sulfate footbaths.
