Long ago, someone pointed out to me that our favourite canned pet food has carrageenan in it, and said that ingredient is reported to be carcinogenic. I decided not to worry about it, because I thought ZiwiPeak, the brand I'm talking about, is ethically produced.
However, today I was reading a report by a cardiologist about carrageena. He says he wouldn't eat it himself. Reluctantly, I decided not to buy this terrific brand of food any more.
In researching this post I found they don't include it any more! Hooray!
Two things occur to me:
1. If they have taken the trouble to replace carrageenan with what they say is a safer ingredient - agar agar - then they must have concluded that carrageenan is indeed dangerous to our pets.
2. Why is carrageenan still listed on some websites as a ZiwiPeak ingredient?
I reckon it's worth looking at the ingredient list on anything you give your dogs - and on any human product - to check for carrageenan.
