Drover Dog Food Review
Drover is a shambles found on the shelves of PetBarn, and would be better off in the bin than your dog’s stomach. Not recommended, but if you want to know why feel free to read on…
Salt is the third ingredient, and given it sits around 1% of the product that tells us the first two ingredients amount to pretty much all of it. The first is the worst possible ingredient we find in a food for a carnivorous animal, and that’s cereal and cereal by-products. What better way for milling companies to dispose of their waste other than turn it into the profit machine known as “dog food”. It’d made by CopRice after all, a grain company not a dog food company.
The second ingredient is ambiguous meat and meat and meat by-products, which will be some parts of cow or chicken, and not likely the good parts.
They’ve also added in vitamins and minerals, simply because it’s legally required to palm this stuff off as “complete and balanced”, and surprisingly they’ve gone to the effort of sprinkling in a trace amount of kelp and garlic. That’s probably for your benefit – “Oooo, this wonderful food has kelp and garlic in it!”.
The only positive thing I can say about the product is the dog on the packaging is beautiful, but I bet he’s fed something better than this.
Oh, and I noticed on the PetBarn website this terrible product has two 5 star reviews. Ironically they’re both by the same person, submitted twice. Just a reminded if a dog eats a product it doesn’t mean it’s good. It’s not.
