Discontinuing Wellness Products Due to Chinese Ingredients

We just discovered that WellPet (makers of Wellness brand foods and treats) have started sourcing some preservative ingredients (green tea extract and mixed tocopherols) in China. Because of this, we have decided to discontinue those products. The Pure Rewards and Wellbites that are on the shelf are the old recipe. They won’t be replaced. We are sorry to have to do this, and we’ve told WellPet that. Wellness canned food will remain. The dry food and treats are out until they modify their recipes to stop using ingredients from China.

If you currently feed your dog any WellPet products, please stop by the store and we can help you pick out alternatives.

    Reading this blog entry has persuaded me to trust your company. I have long believed that Chinese merchants don’t care about the health of our dogs and it’s a mistake to get ingredients from that source. I am remembering the story of the antifreeze that was in dog food that killed many beloved pets. Because our court system will not fuss over the value of our pets when they die from tainted or poisonous products, protective efforts by a pet product supplier is very important to me.

    You do realize that any pet food with a vitamin premix more than likely has at least 1 Chinese ingredient in it. It can’t be helped. We are a global world! Companies can claim they source from countries other than China, but that doesn’t stop those country suppliers from purchasing ingredients from China but selling from their country and thus “nothing from China” can be claimed. I don’t feed Wellness nor do I work for them. Thanks.
