#DiamondNaturals Is Serious About Pet Food Safety

BOWL3 thumb #DiamondNaturals Is Serious About Pet Food Safety

If you’re like me you purchase what you believe is a healthy dog  food and take it for granted that it is safe for you to feed your pets…but  lately that belief is being challenged, as  it seems that we’re reading about  new pet food recalls every week. News outlets are reporting bacterial outbreaks and more at companies both large and small. What’s a conscientious pet parent to do? How can we feel secure with our dog food purchases? If there’s any upside to these recalls, it’s that pet food manufacturers are putting more safeguards in place in an effort to reassure consumers.

Diamond Naturals knows how you feel and takes your concerns seriously.  At Diamond Pet Foods, nothing is more important than the safety of their products. By continuously improving performance with the latest advancements in science and technology, Diamond Pet Foods has developed a comprehensive food safety system.

Quality Control thumb #DiamondNaturals Is Serious About Pet Food Safety

Every aspect of the manufacturing process at Diamond Pet Foods is tested and monitored. For example in each of the company’s facilities, over 1,300 microbiological tests are conducted every week, including finished product tests, in-process tests and sanitation-verification tests.  No product manufactured by Diamond Pet Foods is released into distribution without adhering to the strict standards of the company’s Test and Hold Program, in which product tests are conducted by a certified, independent laboratory. Hourly samples are collected and tested for every product produced. Every sample is kept for a time equal to the guaranteed shelf life of the product, typically 12 months.

On their website Diamond Pet Foods answers the question “How can I be sure of the quality of the Diamond Natural products?”

Diamond Pet Foods works very hard to provide your pet with the highest quality, safest products available. Our151 checks program is one way that we accomplish this. All incoming ingredients are run through a battery of tests, specific for that particular ingredient. These tests are run in the high-tech laboratory that is on site. If any of the test results are questionable, the ingredient is not accepted into the plant. During the production of the food, additional tests are run to ensure that the product is being made to meets its nutritional levels and that there are not any contaminants that were somehow missed during the ingredient testing. All of these results are stored in a computer system for each batch of food. High-tech quality control is the best way to ensure product quality and safety.

Reading all of this, including the details of the “151 Checks Program”, I believe Diamond Naturals is as committed to my pet’s health and safety as I am. I feel that this is one grain-free  food I can feed with confidence.

  8. Brian says:

    I couldn’t believe it, but the “natural holistic” food we used to use was causing UTIs! It’s scary what the manufacturers get away with. Thanks for sharing

    I am always looking for new grain-free foods to try for my dog. He definitely seems to do best without grain in his food, although I am not sure what specifically causes his itchy skin. Looking forward to our opportunity to win a gift basket!

    No my dogs never have but I would love to try it!

    I have fed them grain free before and it didn’t really make a difference. I do like to vary their food though and its a nice alternative to “normal” :)

  18. Danielle Murgia says:

    We have tried grain free but Sissy was not a fan of it. I would like to try another brand that she may like. She’s usually not that picky about food. Grain free is better for them.

  20. Jan K says:

    We have been hearing so much about grain free food lately, but haven’t decided to switch just yet. We had just barely switched foods before we started hearing so much! We won a small bag of another brand, but I have also heard a lot of good things about this brand (one being that it’s less expensive than some). What a generous giveway too! Wow!

  32. KateV says:

    I actually haven’t tried grain free food. I’ve been lucky that Shiloh seems to have no food allergies, grain or otherwise. But I know grains can be a common allergy, and probably would opt for grain free if he weren’t on a prescription diet. I do sometimes get grain free treats and like that I’m giving him less “fillers” as he gets a lot of treats during training.

  33. We like grain free because well we are carnivorous, we are suppose to eat meat not grains, so Mommy thinks it is healthier for us and we thinks it taste better.

  35. Thanks for the review. We feed a different grain free Diamond product. It has been a really good food for Thunder and Storm. We recently changed Freighter’s food and we looked into this one, but there was some reason we decided not to use it. If I recall we were looking for a food with more protein and fat. Once Freighter is full grown, if we decide to change foods we will look at this one again. And it may be something to consider for Thunder and Storm as they age. Since Storm was spayed we have had to cut way back on her food. May need less fat in her food. :)

  37. Mallory H. says:

    We have fed grain free – I’m not sure I see a difference – but I know more meat is better (being tight on money at the moment, we are with grain)

  38. emma says:

    Very nice review. We aren’t going grain free, but if we ever do, good to know.

  39. Bailey & Hazel have been on grain free for several years now. Greta has always been on grain free food. But this last summer she developed allergies to something. She is how on a very limited ing dog food (duck, tapioca, peas, coconuts oil & vitamins). So far it seems to be helping OR her allergies were seasonal/environmental and we will find out next summer.

  44. I have tried several different brands of kibble — both grain-free and not — over the past 9 years with Callie and Shadow, and after a few months on any of them, the girls have developed soft stools and corproghagia (sp?). So, I finally found something that they not only like but also keeps their stools firm and the stool-eating has stopped altogether. It’s Fresh Pet Roasted Select (the bagged stuff, not the sausage-roll kind). It’s expensive as all get out, so I tried adding a 1/4 cup of Merrick’s grain-free chicken & sweet potato kibble to it. Only a few weeks later, the softer stools were back. So, no more Merrick’s. And no more kibble of any brand. I might go broke feeding this Fresh Pet stuff, but if it keeps my girls healthy, I’ll make like a Timex watch: “take a lickin’ and go on tickin’.”
