It looks good except for the menhaden fish meal. Menhaden fish meal is preserved with ethoxyquin :yuck: before it is sold to pet food companies unless the company has asked the supplier not to use it. Does it say anywhere on the bag that ethoxyquin has not been used?

I would contact Solid Gold and ask them if their menhaden fish meal has been preserved with ethoxyquin before being supplied to them.

This is the e mail thThank you for your email,

Our policy is to not use suppliers who use ethoxyquin, BHA or BHT to preserve the raw ingredients. The preservative we use is called Naturox and is the only such natural preservative approved by the Coast Guard. It is a blend of natural tocopherols and herbs. We test our food periodically to make sure that they are following the standards which we put forth for making the food and to ensure that there is no ethoxyquin in the food.

Best regards,

Solid Gold

My bag only says All life stages and that's all they have in the store,I would think that too is considered holistic.

It doesn't mean "old". I always thought it meant that they used human-grade food. :shrug: They were very quick to reply to your last email. Maybe you could email them for clarification.

duh what an idea i will do that now.it shows when i click on features of the food it says special needs: holistic then the 15 pound bag has no special needs which i cannot afford bigger bag right now that is why i wanted to know if holistic is anything i need to worry about if i get it for her

Well, they only have one dry food for cats on their site, so I don't think you have to worry.

Holistic usually means more whole/natural ingredients (when referring to pet foods).
