When my last boxer was having seizures I did a ton of research on ingredients in dog food. What I found really disgusted me. I'm sure everyone has heard of by-products in pet foods which include stuff like eyeballs, intestines, feet, beaks, feathers, euthanized cattle, pigs, cats and dogs, etc...these things are allowed to be in pet foods ( that also includes their collars, metal ID tags and any medications the animal had in his or her system at time of death). Not very appetizing, is it?
While there is no proof that these things cause cancer I have read that artificial preservatives, like BHA, BHT, and Ethoxyquin have been found to be linked to cancers. I'm not sure if these things feed certain types of cancers, or cause them, but these are the three ingredients that I will not take a chance in feeding my pets.
Good luck with your mom's dog, I hope it is not cancer.
