Thank You to Smith Poodles for the Information on this page

No ingredient in TLC includes ethoxyquin, nor do we use it in the formula. TLC's salmon meats and oils NEVER contain ethoxyquin. We work directly with our fish meal suppliers and pay them a premium to have TLC salmon meal and salmon oil preserved naturally with Vitamin E, Citric acid and Rosemary extract instead of ethoxyquin chemical preservative. In addition, all of TLC's fish products are tested for ethoxyquin by independent labs before we accept them, to ensure compliance with TLC's zero ethoxyquin pledge. We do not use any artificial preservatives in the formula so we would not have any BHA or BHT in our dog food either as our formula is only preserved naturally with rosemary extract.


If you have any other questions, please let me know.
