    3. Poultry By-Product Meal
    4. Whole Wheat
    5. Animal Digest
    Whole Ground Corn - the entire ear of corn ground, without husks, with no greater portion of cob than occurs in the ear corn in its natural state. Corn Gluten Meal - the dried residue from corn after the removal of the larger part of the starch and germ, and the separation of the bran by the process employed in the wet milling manufacture of corn starch or syrup, or by enzymatic treatment of the endosperm.

    Poultry By-Product Meal - consists of the ground, rendered, clean parts of the carcass of slaughtered poultry, such as necks, feet, undeveloped eggs, intestines, exclusive of feathers, except in such amounts as might occur unavoidably in good processing practices.

    Whole Wheat - ground whole kernel, presumably equivalent to AAFCO's Wheat Mill Run, Wheat Middlings, Wheat Shorts or Wheat Red Dog, whose principal differences are in the percentage of crude fiber

    Animal Digest - material which results from chemical and/or enzymatic hydrolysis of clean and un-decomposed animal tissue. The animal tissues used shall be exclusive of hair, horns, teeth, hooves and feathers, except in such trace amounts as might occur unavoidably in good factory practice and shall be suitable for animal feed.

  2. Dave Giles Says:

    My cat became seriously ill after eating this food. He started vomiting a foamy yellowish-green substance followed by a green fluid.
    Fortunately, I found an herbal medication at my local pet store that fixed the problem. I will never again use this product. Stay away!
