The Menadione is synthetic vitamin K and is not good for your dog. It has been banned for human use but is still permitted in dog food for some reason. Most good dog foods either don't use it or have stopped using it.

I know Nutro still loves to use it, along with Purina products too. Blech!

I actually had a Nutro nutritionist message me after I had a small dispute with a Nutro rep at my local Petsmart. It was quite interesting to see how ignorant their own nutritionist was! She was literally brainwashed just like the rest of em. so sad.
