While we don’t know why I just suggest not buying it anymore.
Cuz its CR@P
They’ll add anything just to make the dog eat it or to just fill the dog up, they don’t care about your dogs nutritional care.
What on earth are you doing feeding your dog that disgusting Pedigree food? It’s full of corn, fillers, by-products, road kill, etc.
Go to dogfoodanalysis.com and find something good for your dog. Click on reviews, they are rated 1-6, one being the crappiest and the higher the rating the better the food. They tell you what is in the food and why they gave it the rating they gave.
No onion power in australia stock of Pedigree. So they may have changed the formulation and i know they did resonalty change the formulation in australia, still not much difference though
I don’t know why they do it but I would not recommend that brand. My cousin had to put to sleep her dog after years of feeding him with that brand, the vet told her that he died of cancer developed because of the food. And yes, onions are bad for dogs.
lol, since when has Pedigree included anything good in their food.
Dogs develop hemolytic anemia if they eat enough onions. I don’t think that it matters too much whether the onions are cooked or not. The quantity of onions required is high enough that dogs can generally tolerate small doses of onions without any problem and moderate amounts of onion without clinically apparent disease, even though there may be measurable changes on lab test results. Cats are probably a little more sensitive to onion toxicity than dogs are. I can’t find an exact quantity of onions required to cause toxicity problems in dogs, but there are several case reports of onion toxicity and they involve whole onions or sizable portions of chopped onions (like a cup or more). I think that feeding dogs meat that has been cooked with onions is pretty safe but you might want to avoid giving them the broth from around something like pot-roast if there were a lot of onions used in the cooking, just to be safe.
Large amounts of garlic will produce similar toxicity problems in both dogs and cats. I think that the amount required is not likely to be eaten by a cat but there are probably a few dogs who would lap up a container of spilled garlic.
Among common foods, the only other significant toxicity that I can think of are recent reports of toxicity from eating grapes and raisins that have been reported in dogs.

I would be more concerned about the Sodium Nitrite in it, which has been linked to cancer in humans and we won’t even go into what the by products & brewer’s rice it’s made with actually are LOL
You are smart to read the ingredients. =-)
You know, just because it is expensive, doesn’t mean it is good for your dog.
