The AvoDerm line was launched in 1982 as a specialty food for the alleviation of skin and coat problems in dogs. Eight of the brand's formulas include avocado meal, stating that the ingredient contains Vitamins A, E and C in abundance, as well as folate, potassium, niacin, and fatty acids. The food is also free of chemical or artificial preservatives, such as Ethoxyquin, BHA, or BHT.
Key ingredients in AvoDerm foods are the meats of chicken and lamb. Other ingredients are ground whole brown rice, ground whole rice, oatmeal, rice bran, flaxseed, dried alfalfa meal, avocado oil, herring meal, rosemary extract, sage extract, bromelain, papain, dried kelp, and canola oil. The company avoids the use of beef, corn, and wheat as do many other holistic or natural food manufacturers. Some dry formulations do indeed contain corn, however.
AvoDerm offers a vegetarian dog food.
