So why are they not a pet food company? Yes, the guy who owns it also is a partner at a distributor....but so what? Many small pet food companies are operated by a handful of employees and manufacturing is done by a co-packer. Does that make them a fake pet food company?Verus is not really a pet food company. It is a brand owned by a distributor so it can be sold cheap. No idea who makes it.
It is also sold in puppy mill stores and that doesn't say much good about the "company".
I remember feeling so guilty when I first got Sid, thinking I could never afford to give her good food. Blue Buffalo and Wellness were the first "good foods" I encountered and they became my baseline idea of what quality cost. They're so overpriced it seems sort of criminal...but I think it's a situation where you pay for them to market to you. I don't see ads for the foods I feed now, all glossy in magazines or on television, but those two brands advertise a ton.Cheap? Their grain free chicken based product sells for over $80...similar to Orijen and it only has 24% protein (Orijen is 38%)
