RICE: A COMMON INGREDIENT IN DOG AND CAT FOOD
www.pet-ingredients.com/rice-a-common-ingredient-in-dog-and-cat-food

There are a few pre-1990 studies
regarding toxicity of arsenic in dogs
that have evaluated large doses of
purified arsenic which led to weight
loss, reduced intake, food aversions,
etc. No work on LD 50 or long-term
effects in the target species are available. Further, no information is available regarding effects in cats. The
2005 Mineral Tolerances of Animals
(an NRC publication) for animal
toxicity states maximal arsenic levels
of 12,500 ug/kg (part per billion) diet
based on the rat as the most susceptible animal known. This is a level
20- to 40-fold what might be encountered in a typical rice-containing dog
or cat food.
In this era of Zero Tolerance, one
could argue that any arsenic is bad;
however, it must be remembered
that this is a common mineral found
in the earth's crust. There is no
escaping it. Humans and animals
have adapted over the eons to arsenic
in their food, water and environment.
What is important is to remain vigilant regarding the background levels
of arsenic along with all the other
critical quality control parameters.
Rice remains a readily available
source of calories, provides a facile
platform on which to construct
complete diets and has functionality
during processing that can benefit
pet nutrition. Avoidance for the sake
of misplaced fear is not warranted for
this staple ingredient in wholesome
commercial food for dogs and cats. ■
