Default No Rosemary extract in the food

I just found out that ARTEMIS OSOPURE SMALL BREED ADULT DOG FOOD does not contain the Rosemary extract.

As you may know, this is a cause of seizure in some dog and 2 months ago, my Dolcina, fainted, and since then, I was looking for food that does not contain Rosemary extract.

ARTEMIS used to have it in their dog food, but in this new formula, no more. Thought you might be interested to know.

I bought the 30lbs for $32 + tax.

Sammy, mom to Dolcina, Bambolina, Poupetta, Lucy, Ricky and Piccolina in Heaven.

I have been giving my malt Nordic Naturals omegas 3 6 9 fish oil and it has rosemary extract with no ill effects. All the dry food I give always has rosemary extract towards the end of the ingredient list so the little amount they actually get is very little.

some Malts will react while others will not.....only issue there is that you don't know which kind yours is until it may be too late (a seizure).

Just wondering, and perhaps it's been discussed before..but why is rosemary included in so many pet foods? For flavoring? It's almost difficult to find one without it.

I was told that they use rosemary extract in pet food because it is a NATURAL preservative.

Rosemary is used as a preservative.

There is no scientific evidence that proves rosemary extract can cause seizures.

i think you only need to be concerned about rosemary if your dog has had seizures before.
