When a pet food company clearly identifies their ingredients, and they are natural and pure, it is a big plus in my book. With my chihuahua, Hayley, entering her senior years, it is even more important that we feed her the most natural ingredients. You might recall we decided on Diamond Naturals Grain Free food a couple of months ago. I'm happy to report that the food definitely does seem to be helping Hayley's digestive issues.
When it comes to safety, it puts my mind to rest to know that the company has developed a comprehensive food safety system in which "every aspect of the manufacturing process at Diamond Pet Foods is tested and monitored.
What I find particularly troublesome and in fact, horrifying, is how many pet companies actually perform invasive and cruel testing on dogs. I just recently found out what is happening and I am purely shocked. It is a sick and inhumane practice that needs to stop. When I inquired about this at Diamond Naturals, they were more than happy to offer information:
"The testing at Diamond Pet Foods is limited to palatability testing – whether dogs like the taste of the food or not. Private owners bring their pets in to a laboratory to participate in the testing. These certified laboratories are selected based on their dedication to nutritional research."Diamond Naturals is an example of what a pet food should be: safe, natural, and with the animal's best interest at heart.
