Dog Food Ingredients-Animal Digest??!!

April 12th, 2008, 08:55 PM
I was checking out the ingredient list on a certain brand of dog food when I was out shopping today and :yuck: There was no meat listed and there was animal digest listed as an ingredient. WTF is animal digest?? I'm sure it can't possibly be the first thing that comes to my mind....or can it??? I can't believe anyone would seriously feed their dog this garbage. I couldn't even pronounce most of the ingredients!

Animal Digest: material which results from chemical and/or enzymatic hydrolysis of clean and undecomposed 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.
What I find particulary not good is that it is not species specific ie CHICKEN digest FISH digest
