Uncompromising Pet Safety: Reasons Why We Choose Our Food Brands

As pet owners, we understand the paramount importance of providing our furry companions with safe, nutritious, and high-quality food. At Mutts & Co., we are committed to the well-being of your pets, and this commitment extends to the brands we choose to feature in our inventory. One brand notably absent from our shelves is Purina, and this decision is rooted in a thorough examination of various factors.

Recall History
Recalls are an essential aspect to consider when evaluating a pet food brand, as they reflect the company's ability to maintain quality control and uphold the safety of their products. Purina has issued numerous recalls over the years, including one in 2023 due to high levels of Vitamin D in Purina Pro Plan and several in the past due to suspected salmonella contamination. These incidents raise red flags among pet owners and industry experts, highlighting the importance of scrutinizing the safety protocols of pet food manufacturers.

Ingredient Quality and Safety Concerns
A crucial factor in pet food safety is the quality of ingredients used. An evaluation of Purina ingredient panels shows seemingly low-quality ingredients like fillers and by-products, thus compromising the overall nutritional value of their products. In addition, pet owners have expressed frustration over the vague descriptions of certain ingredients on their product labels, making it difficult for them to make informed choices about their pets' nutrition. Plus, there have been recent reports of digestive issues, allergic reactions, and other health problems in pets associated with certain Purina formulations.

Our Commitment to Pet Safety
In our commitment to providing only the best for your pets, we have chosen not to carry Purina brand pet foods. Our decision is grounded in the belief that pet owners deserve complete peace of mind when selecting products for their beloved companions. By carefully curating our inventory and choosing brands with a consistent record of safety and quality, we aim to uphold the trust you place in us as your preferred provider of dog and cat supplies.

While Purina may be a popular brand in the pet food industry, Mutts & Co. prioritizes the safety and well-being of your pets above all else. Through diligent research and consideration of recall history, safety concerns, ingredient quality, and transparency in labeling, we have made the decision to exclude Purina from our selection. Your trust is invaluable to us, and we are committed to offering only the highest quality products that contribute to the health and happiness of your furry family members.
