The search for natural pet products to improve the health of pets is part of the whole increase in awareness of paying more attention to what we eat.

The ingredients in a lot of dog food are grain based and with the GMO in many vegetables this might not be the best choice for dog food in the first place. Experts even claim that grain based dog food is not good for dogs.

Is taste of the wild made in the USA

(Back to Top)
I was looking for an answer on this question and fond this Quote on the customer review of Amazon.

Our foods are manufactured in three facilities, all in the United States. One is located in California, one in Missouri and one in South Carolina.
Most of the ingredients in Diamond Pet Foods originate in the United States.  There are critical ingredients that are not available domestically in an adequate supply and with as much quality as our international supply. We do purchase some ingredients from foreign suppliers such as lamb meal from New Zealand, potato protein from Germany and dried chicory root from Belgium.
We screen for all toxins with a test called ToxiScreen.  This test screens for other toxins besides melamine and cyanuric acid but heavy metals, pesticide residue, aflatoxin, vomitoxin, rodenticide, and many others.  Should any of these contaminants be present in the sample, the ToxiScreen test will detect it.
To answer your question, there are ingredients that are critical to our formulations (i.e. folic acid, taurine, vitamin C) that can only be sourced out of China. Our choice is to either include these ingredients or manufacturer our foods without them, which would not be in the best interest of your pet, in our view.
Some pet food companies are making “China-Free” claims despite the facts I’ve outlined above.  They accomplish this by utilizing a loophole in European law.  European laws allow for ingredients purchased outside their continent, then reprocessed in Europe, to be labeled with European origin.  We could likewise hide behind that loophole in the law, and tell you what you want to hear, but choose not to for obvious reasons.  I’d rather you not feed our foods than to tell you they are China-free, when they are not.
Food safety is our #1 priority and it shows in the amount of new business we get from word of mouth-friends and neighbors talking to one another, recommending our foods.  Our ingredients go through over 151 quality assurance checks, from the time the ingredient arrives to the end process of shipping, to ensure the safety of our products

My opinion about taste of the wild dog food

(Back to Top)
Some remarks I read where about the high percentage of protein in taste of the wild and that animals having trouble digesting high protein food. I read on a blog that this is only for protein from soy and corn. Taste of the wild only contains animal protein. That is why I have to tell you that this taste of the wild dog food review is based on things I read about this brand and opinions of others. You should do your own research or ask you veterinarian if this is the dog food for you dog.

Overall after reading a ton of opinions from people who use this dog food daily and reading the more scientifically aspects of animal food in general and dog food in particular. I think this is a very good quality dog food.

The used ingredients are tested and come from a variety of sources. Most of them come from the United States and the production facilities are also in the US.

The meat seems to come from very good sources. A real plus in my opinion is that they use herpa filtered air in their production process and that they use filtered water that is filtered trough a reverse osmosis process.

The price might be a little higher but you get what you pay for and like I wrote in an other post there are a lot of benefits in eating healthier and in the long run more organic can even be cheaper. It can maybe safe on your veterinarian bills.

Since we pay more attention to our food I think it is great that thousands of people decide to spend a little more on good dog food. We all complaint about non organic meat and food but most of us feed our pets crappy food from the cheap isle in the supermarket.
