How consumers view petfood ingredients

Megan Gill, territory manager for Hill's Pet Nutrition , and Dr. Megan Williams, a veterinarian with Clear Lakes Animal Wellness , explained how consumers view ingredients.

Corn is one ingredient that is seen as "bad" by consumers but is actually good: It has healthy fatty acids, protein, antioxidants, energy and it's highly digestible, according to Gill .

Williams stated that preservatives also aren't harmful and are even necessary in order to keep petfood safe.
