So, it's like a contest of who can take the most disgusting, bottom-of-the-barrel leftovers of the human food chain, cram it all together in a colorful bag, slap on a fancy name and there you go! :yuck: it's pathetic :thumbs up

oh and from their website http://www.cariboucreekgold.com/ingredientsblue.htm:

Flaxseed and Menhaden Oil are our primary sources of Omega 3 fatty acids. The oils are sprayed on the pellets after they are extruded to protect them from the high heat of the extrusion process. Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acid ratio is an optimal 4 to 1.

Corn, Oat Flour and Brewers Rice provide a highly digestible source of carbohydrates.

Beet Pulp and Psyllium are our primary fiber sources which aid in digestion, many top Dog Trainers have found that Psyllium will help reduce stress diarrhea during heavy training and competition. Our vitamins and minerals have been balanced with the hard working dog in mind.

Look at the label for Caribou Creek Gold and compare it to what you are feeding now. Our first ingredient is USDA inspected fresh frozen liver. Five of our first seven ingredients are meat based protein sources. Each of these protein sources was chosen because of its particular amino acid profile to balance with the rest to provide the most digestible, most complete protein possible for the performance dog. Other dog foods dominated by one or two protein sources are not likely to have this full complement of amino acids


are they joking?? :confused: those poor dogs are not only raced to bloody paws and total exhaustion, but they have to rely on this crap of mystery by-products for fuel? :(
