|Top 5 Ingredients*|
*AvoDerm Original Canned Food was selected as the recipe for this ingredient list
Avoderm is an excellent dog food that uses an unusual ingredient: avocado! Avocados are very nutritionally sound, but some people believe some dogs have a food sensitivity to it. We have not heard of anyone getting sick from the avocados in this food, though, so we have given AvoDerm our highest rating.
Avoderm Dog Foods are manufactured in the U.S. by Breeders-Choice Pet Foods which is part of Central Garden & Pet Company. This is an excellent food that uses high quality ingredients including excellent proteins, fruits, vegetables and brown rice. The only questionable item that we found in some of the ingredient lists is the use of “rice” and “ocean fish”. These terms are very general when we really would like to know what kind of rice and fish are actually being used
Customer reviews of AvoDerm’s dog food formulas are generally positive. For many dogs with skin-based allergic symptoms, AvoDerm dog food formulas seem to have good results. Some dog owners reported that after switching to AvoDerm from other formulas, they noticed an improvement in their dog’s overall health and appearance. The use of avocados does not seem to be a problem at all.
The company who makes Avoderm dog food is called Breeder’s Choice Pet Foods. Breeder’s Choice is actually a division of the Central Garden and Pet Company. Breeder’s Choice first introduced pet food in 1947, when they marketed frozen pet meals. It wasn’t until 1960 that Breeder’s Choice began producing dry kibble and biscuit treats. Avoderm dog food was first introduced in 1982, and continues to be produced today.
As of 9/2012, AvoDerm® Dog Food is recalled one batch of AvoDerm® Adult Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Dog Food due to possible contamination with Salmonella. This is only for the 26 lb. bags of food with the “Best by” dates of 8/28/13 – 8/30/13.
If your dog has an allergy to oatmeal gluten, it’s best not to feed them any of Avoderm’s dog food formulas that contain oatmeal. If your dog is allergic to a specific protein, such as chicken, it’s best to check the ingredients of your dog’s Avoderm formula.
