Glad to "turn" another person to my cause LOL. I figure someday if enough of us pet owners are informed and enraged, this can stop. Unfortunately so many people don't know, and it just makes me sooo made that pet food companies can get away with the false advertising they run. People think they are feeding something great and they aren't, and these companies just don't care. It's all about the buck!
Wellness is a good brand. Parker (dog) eats their biscuits, the kitties get the crumbs, and I've even tried them although I find them a bit dry! The kitties eat Natural Balance, I actually haven't found any Wellness cat food around here so far. But they are good on the NB and I have seen a marked improvement in Poppy's skin problems.
As far as specific companies go, I think they don't identify them in the articles for fear of lawsuits. The pet food companies are huge - Purina is Nestle Ralston Purina, Iams is made by Proctor and Gamble, I believe. To get in a lawsuit with them, even if they lost, would cost the little guy more than the big corps. The important thing is to learn to read labels, speak with your wallet, and inform people who are interested!
