Anyone knows 'Dog lover's gold' food?
I feed my yorkie 'Canidae' and I got the food from an internet dealer.
But the guy couldn`t sell any more 'Canidae' because of some import problems. Instead of Canidae he now is selling 'Dog lovers gold' .
I have never heard of this brand before, so I am a little bit afraid to try this food. The ingredients seem very good to me though.
But one of their ingredients is salt. I didn`t know dog food can contain salt, but maybe little would be ok?? Anybody here has exprience with this food ?
Below are the ingredients taken from their website.

Formulated to exceed the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog food Nutrient Profile for All Life Stages
Your dog is a individual and to maintain your dog a happy and healthy life you should always feed your dog to the individual needs. We recommend feeding your dog twice a day.
Your dog may eat more or less depending on age, temperament and activity level.
Puppies up to 6 months should be fed up to twice the amount of an adult dog, divided by 3-4 meals per day.
Pregnant dogs in the last 3 weeks of pregnancy should be fed approximately 50% more than the usual amount, divided by 3 equal portions per day.
Senior or overweight dogs may be fed a reduced amount depending on the dog's weight and activity level.
Do not exercise or run your dog very hard immidiately after his meal. Always have plenty of fresh water available for your dog to drink.

The food sounds good and I found this on salt from another dog food that is recommended by Whole Dog Journal:
Why is there salt in the dry dog food?
The salt in the foods helps to satisfy the requirement for sodium and chloride. The requirement for sodium is 0.3% and 0.45% for chloride in the dog foods. The salt is added at 0.6%, 12 lbs per ton of day diet. Salt also helps to stimulate water intake for pets that are confined to the air-conditioned homes.

it sounds like good food to me too. The salt is so far down the list that I wouldn't really worry too much about it but, if you are concerned I would contact your vet.
