Rachael Ray Going to the Dogs with New Pet Food

Celebrity chef Rachael Ray has launched a charity-driven line of dog foods based on recipes she created for her pit bull, Isaboo. Product information claims the commercial food is based on real meat and veggies and does not contain fillers. All sales of the Rachael Ray Nutrish pet foods will go to Rachael's Rescue, which helps at-risk animals.

Has anyone seen this food anywhere? I wonder what the ingredients and production method are. You can spin a press release, but not the ingredient list! Is this really a high quality food or is it just the latest in Rachel's long list of "products" and endorsements? I applaud her though for her rescue work and donating proceeds to the organization she created.

If anyone has seen this food or has used the product let me know what you think!

The Nutrish website ( has details on the ingredients and the Where to buy link says it can be found at Walmarts.

Chicken meal, brewers rice, corn meal and soybean meal are 4 of the top 5 ingredients in each line with beef/chicken (not meal) being the first ingredient respectively for the beef/brown rice and chicken/veggie.

Beef/brown rice would seem to be a bit misleading because the brown rice is 8th down the list.

Not the worst kibble out there, and probably not one I'd feed to a dog with food sensitivities.

It's not one I'd give to my dogs (chicken gives them soft poop) but it's not a terrible looking kibble based on the ingredient list.
