Melissaandcrew on Pedigree Dog Food Recall Then you didn't use it! For some reason those that died, seemed to have done so after the second injection. I would have to google to confirm but I believe it is/w as s moxidectin.

qutiebree on Orijen Dog Food (Dry) We switched a few days ago, he seems to enjoy it pretty well and the hot spots have def gone down. Hope this will be the remedy to his allergies.

Dani Woehrle on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods 4FootedFoodie, first, i want to thank you for actually taking time to discuss this. The shelter said they spent two years working to determine what Chewy was allergic to, and though they never told me what specifically what that is they did say he does best on a "limited ingredient" food. The kibble they gave me is the one he has done the best on. I knew of Chewy and would visit him over the last year and a half and have never seen him with as much hair as he has at this moment. Nor have I seen…

Heidi on Pedigree Dog Food (Canned) Thank you, since your the only one that hasn't actually put me down, insulting comments, etc. I was just stating "my" experience.

angela on Blue Buffalo Basics Grain Free (Dry) I took my husky off Blue Buffalo Basic immediately & saw improvement in the hot spots. He no longer developed any new hot spots & the existing ones healed immediately.
August 29, 2014 9:39 pm

Lars on Nulo Medal Series Grain Free (Canned) We just started using it with a dog who has just awful allergies. We are feeding the canned salmon and chickpeas variety. It is too soon to tell if it is making a difference, but he likes it a lot. it is a solid 'lump' of wet canned food vs. those that look like beef stew. I will keep you posted as we continue with it -- but so far, so good. It is a food that comes out of the can in a solid lump (like canned cranberry gel vs. a stew). The one thing that I am going to have to monitor is…

BridgeN on Orijen Dog Food (Dry) hi! I have an almost 2 yr old jack russell that has extremely sensitive skin, and after switching to orijen regional red, I have noticed the itching and hot spots have greatly decreased! Definitely worth trying out!

August 29, 2014 8:58 pm

Amber on Pulsar Dog Food (Dry) No problem. The guy at the store I go to in St Louis said it's new to their store too so just keep looking. Maybe find a pet Health food store and request it? I came across this one by looking up certain brands like acana and orijen and looking at where their sold since you can't find them in large chains such as petco. Then the guy recommended it to me and said he feeds his dogs pulsar and it's the same quality as some premium foods but half the price. He also said that it's a small family…

Shar24 on Pedigree Dog Food (Canned) I truly believe that you really love your dogs and want to do the best you can for them, and I think that is probably why you are feeling so defensive about this issue. I agree with you in that probably millions of dogs across America eat Pedigree dog food and like brands and I am sure many of them do live to be 10+ years old. Here is the thing. This is a website devoted to the science of what makes a good dog food, how to select a high quality food that works for your pups specific needs…

Natalie Perline-Norman on Wellness Complete Health (Dry) No health problems. Just not a dog food lover.
August 29, 2014 8:37 pm

sandy on Nature’s Variety Instinct (Canned) The 5 star rating is for the brand as a whole. Any formulas that are not 5 stars are notated, such as the duck. In the last section called "A Final Word" there's a blue link "our ratings" that takes you to the article "How We Rate Dog Food". Also check out the sentence below "Enthusiastically recommended".
August 29, 2014 8:32 pm

4FootedFoodie on Innova Dog Food (Canned) The irony is, when you convert the fat in this food to a dry matter basis, you'll find the fat is actually 18.2%.
August 29, 2014 8:27 pm

Rebecca Lynne Aubin on Pedigree Dog Food (Dry) My dog was on Pedigree Vitality chicken and rice for 15 years and was in fantastic health.We only recently had to put him down as his arthritis was so bad he could no longer walk.So I just wonder what all this hype is about. My female does have issues with her digestive system and is gassy does not matter what brand high end or low end she has really bad days, Vet told me lean ground beef and rice...Rice is grain.I had a hunting dog that ate raw deer meat and he was healthy and he also ate…
August 29, 2014 8:20 pm

4FootedFoodie on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods OK, gotcha. Did they tell you what they determined were his allergies / intolerances? A true elimination diet takes quite a while and requires a lot of discipline. I'm surprised a shelter would be able to take that on. Regardless, it sounds like you like to offer fresh, whole foods, but is kibble sort of your base food? Are you waiting to be able to try another kibble other than lamb & rice? What kibble do you feed that works well for him? Don't beat yourself up for trying…

M C on Innova Dog Food (Canned) INNOVA LOWER FAT ADULT DOG FOOD, 13.2oz, Green Can: 5 stars, in my opinion This food has saved my 11 year old Yorkie dog from painful pancreatitis flareups. He would beg to be fed, but within 20 minutes of a meal he'd double over, shaking, curling his back legs up slightly in the air, and it was so upsettng because the vet couldn't seem to get it right. (Tests, iv fluids, antibiotics, more tests.) I'm also certain he has Canine Cushing's Disease, but I need to get him tested...again. Over the…

Crazy4cats on Pulsar Dog Food (Dry) I emailed the company, but she said the turkey isn't available in our area at all. I haven't even found it on a internet pet food site. Good to hear your pup loves it. I'll keep my eyes open. Thanks for the review.
August 29, 2014 7:56 pm

Cyndi on Pedigree Dog Food (Canned) Nowadays they are putting more crap in dog foods than they used to. I had a dog that lived to be 17 on Alpo his whole life. Now, the big companies don't care. They cut corners and add crap to their products without batting an eye, just for the money. & nowadays, there is an overabundance of euthanized pets. They have to end up somewhere. Back 30, 40 years ago, dogs weren't dropping dead from eating commercial pet food like they are now. All of us that have done research are just…

Guest on Innova Dog Food (Canned) INNOVA LOWER FAT ADULT DOG FOOD, 13.2 OZ, IN THE GREEN CAN: 5 Stars, in my opinion This food has saved my Yorkie dog from painful pancreatitis flareups. He would beg to be fed, but within 20 minutes of a meal he'd double over, shaking, curling his back legs up slightly in the air, and it was so upsetting because the vet couldn't seem to help me keep this from happening. (I'm certain he also has Canine Cushing's Disease, to be tested.) Over the past two years he could digest less and less…
August 29, 2014 7:46 pm

Kate on Nature’s Variety Instinct (Canned) Towards the bottom of this review it says the duck is 5 stars but at the top it says the duck is 4.5 stars. I gather from the comments the 4 flavors with 4.5 stars were somewhat recently downgraded yet I see absolutely no explanation of this. Is this website even legit or is it just random? I find the inconsistencies and lack of info a bit disturbing.
August 29, 2014 7:40 pm

Dori on Off Topic Discussions Thanks C4C. That is some seriously green food. Let us know how it goes.
August 29, 2014 7:34 pm

Dori on Hill’s Prescription Diet I/D Canine (Dry) I'm not sure I understand so please forgive me in advance. If Eva was sick and put on i/d food how did Ozzy get sick? Why did you feed it to him if Eva was the sick one and the prescription was for her?
August 29, 2014 7:33 pm

Dori on Alpo Chop House Dog Food (Canned) Don't you think that if they were human consumable, as you suggest, they would be marketing that like crazy. That's what sells. Human ingredients in a dog food SELLS. I, like others, am LMAO at your post. Seriously? You don't really believe that do you? I'm also pretty sure that most of us know the difference between a roaster and a frier. But thanks for trying to educate us.
August 29, 2014 7:30 pm

Dori on Suggested Weight Loss Dog Foods Naomi. Did you take your dog somewhere to get help today? If so, please let us know the outcome. We are a caring group here on DFA and are concerned and would like to know the outcome.

Dori on Off Topic Discussions Ahhhhhh. Thanks Cyndi.
August 29, 2014 7:24 pm

Heidi on Pedigree Dog Food (Canned) Let me tell you something. I have had dogs since I am 5yrs old. Every single one of our dogs lived a long and healthy life. 10+ yrs. We have had Beagles, Black Labs, Schnauzers, mutts and each and everyone has been well taken care of, shot always up to date, check ups, heartworm/flea preventive, and neutered/spayed. Most if not all of our dogs were rescues. But being you all are such experts and telling me that I have no earthly clue on how to feed my pets or how to make a transition when…
August 29, 2014 7:24 pm

Dori on Suggested Weight Loss Dog Foods How on earth did you allow your dog to get this obese. This is the owner's fault. They cannot eat what they are not given. It's overfeeding, plain and simple. Pardon me but I have to say that this is inhumane treatment of an animal. This is horrifying.
August 29, 2014 7:23 pm

Dani Woehrle on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods 4FootedFoodie, the Humane Society i adopted Chewy from did. When i took him home they gave me a 30lb bag of Lamb & Rice food. i just wanted to treat my guys tonight, as my beagles LOVE game (venison, elk, moose) and thought maybe Chewy would be ok, since its not processed or anything. it was no more a half hour later that he chewed a weeping wound in his tail. im convinced no more anything for Chewy except lamb & rice. its killing me thinking about how i made my pup suffer. so much so…

4FootedFoodie on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Hi Dani, So sorry about your pup! Have you ever tried a true elimination diet?

LabsRawesome on Alpo Chop House Dog Food (Canned) Yeah right! LMAO.
August 29, 2014 6:51 pm

Amber on Pulsar Dog Food (Dry) I buy the turkey at a local pet health store. Though sometimes they have it and sometimes they don't. I've been switching between the chicken and the turkey and my pulpy has never had an issue and she loves it

Donna Mixon on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods My dog is allergic to food too. I use baby carrots as treats. All of our dogs LOVE them!
August 29, 2014 6:47 pm

Dani Woehrle on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods My heart is breaking! My chow/shep is very allergic to almost everything! So what do i do tonight, go and give him 2 pieces of the moose roast i made for dinner! UGH!!! Poor guy. i finished doing dishes and found he licked a fresh wound, bleeding and all, at the base of his tail. im at a loss because my two beagles do well with game, fruits and vegetables, but this poor guy cant seem to tolerate anything but his Lamb & Rice kibble. i want to be able to give him a treat when the beagles get…

Crazy4cats on Off Topic Discussions Yes, what Cyndi said! Weird, huh? I expected it to be more chunky, not so powdery fine and Green! Dogs really liked it though.

Celtic Rhosyn on Hill’s Prescription Diet I/D Canine (Dry) My dog, Eva, was very sick a couple of weeks ago with severe diarrhea and vomiting. I took her to the vet to find all of her blood work, etc was fine...it was only some kind of common stomach illness that'll pass. The vet put her on Hill's i/d prescription diet for a week, and it didn't help much. It actually made my other dog very sick with vomiting and diarrhea, and he was perfectly healthy before. Eva eventually recovered from her issue, yet the vet is insisting on keeping her on that food…

John Bolez on Alpo Chop House Dog Food (Canned) I have known people who have worked at ALPO (Allentown Products) all my life, and all meats are Human consumable. They prepair them the same as in any production line for humans, & workers are welcome to eat off the line, all they want. One friend never took lunch from home when they ran the rotisary chicken, & would eat a whole one for lunch, as the rest of his family only ate fried chicken this was the only time he got to eat roasted chicken with out paying big bucks in a restaurant.…
August 29, 2014 3:56 pm

Melissaandcrew on Pedigree Dog Food Recall Labs-its called Proheart 6. Its an injection of a chemical to prevent heartworm for 6mths. I never used it then, and I sure as hell would not use it now. It was off market for several years and returned a yr or so ago. Many deaths reported from the first release, and it seems like most dogs died after the second injection.
August 29, 2014 3:47 pm

Melissaandcrew on Suggested Weight Loss Dog Foods Naomi-take that shirt off of her. Its way to tight and she is also panting heavily in that photo of her. Exercise intolerance can be a sign of respiratory/heart issues. You need to seek vet care, in person, not from an internet website.
August 29, 2014 3:45 pm

Elayne on Diamond Naturals (Dry) Our vet recommended high protein ones but we are going with the low protein as recommended by the breeder.
August 29, 2014 3:05 pm

Elayne on Diamond Naturals (Dry) We are going with what the breeder recommended...presidents choice nutrition first.
August 29, 2014 3:04 pm

Elayne on Diamond Naturals (Dry) After posting I saw what you are referring too and quickly changed my mind. We are going with what the breeder recommended...presidents choice nutrition first.
August 29, 2014 3:02 pm

Shar24 on Pedigree Dog Food Recall I feed my puppy Wellness Core Puppy, it is a 5 star food that has calcium levels appropriate for a large breed puppy. But if you make the switch, its good to transition to a mid range food first, because the difference in nutrition is so vast between Pedigree and Wellness Core. A lot of people recommend Nutrisource as a good food for transitioning.
August 29, 2014 2:34 pm

Debi Farnham on Pedigree Dog Food Recall I am in California. I fed my dogs this food and they were violently ill. In fact I thought I was going to lose them. I will look at the number to see if it was possibly from this lot.
August 29, 2014 2:31 pm

Shar24 on Suggested Weight Loss Dog Foods Not getting your pet necessary emergency veterinary care is a form of cruelty. I am not saying this to be mean or judgmental in anyway, just that it is a fact. I think someone mentioned going to your local ASPCA, and I think that is a good idea if you don't have the means or credit to take her to a regular vet.
August 29, 2014 2:28 pm

Shar24 on Suggested Weight Loss Dog Foods a lot of times shelters have programs to help animals in need get the vet care that they need.
August 29, 2014 2:24 pm

Marissa on Pedigree Dog Food Recall I have just recently switched to Canidae Grain Free Pure sky, for my 1 year old boxer and enjoys it. I was giving her Iams and she was not to happy with it and they just recently had a recall as well. But the Canidae i find is on of less pricey "higher priced' dog foods. Also i get her the Made with Duck,and duck is the first ingredient labeled there along with sweet potatoes and peas. Check it out if you'd like (:
August 29, 2014 1:53 pm

Cyndi on Off Topic Discussions Dori, it's green because of all the dried green ingredients, like dried spinach, dried spirulina algae, dried kelp, etc. There is other stuff in it too, but I think those are the only green ingredients. The See Spot Live Longer DInner mix is a dried powder, so whatever you mix it with, will turn green. :)
August 29, 2014 1:49 pm

Sherry Noss on Diamond Naturals (Dry) Aquariangt, May I ask where is your current research from? Meaning what are your sources for your statement of "most current and accepted research lends itself to low calcium and high protein for a large/giant puppy." I believe many of you are quoting from this article link... http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2012/04/09/slow-growth-diets-for-giant-breed-puppy.aspx This is a very good article from one Veternarian and if you read it to the end it also supports what I…

Cyndi on Off Topic Discussions Maybe someone will stop eating so much now, LOL!! How adorable!
August 29, 2014 1:45 pm

Cyndi on Suggested Weight Loss Dog Foods As Dori said, you need to get her to the vet. Part of owning a pet is having available funds in case of an emergency. It sounds like there is something wrong with her and she should be seen by a vet right away.

Naomi on Suggested Weight Loss Dog Foods It's not that I'm cruel to my pet in any way I just need help to make her lose weight and we just don't have money to be paying for vet bills check ups any of that right now and this is how she looks like
August 29, 2014 1:19 pm

Dori on Off Topic Discussions I wonder why it's so green in color. Any thoughts? I've never used the food so I don't know what ingredients would make it so green.

Dori on Off Topic Discussions How very sweet. Poor little critter I'm so glad there are still decent kind people out and about. :)
August 29, 2014 1:15 pm

LabsRawesome on Pedigree Dog Food Recall Oh Martha Armetna said her dog died from the Heart worm shot. Maybe she meant a treatment, and not a vacc? IDK.
August 29, 2014 1:14 pm

Dori on Suggested Weight Loss Dog Foods Good Grief. Take your dog to a vet ASAP! Don't spend time asking for advice here. Take your dog to the doctor. This sounds as though it may be a life threatening issue. Don't call to make appointment, just put your dog in the car and drive her to the vet or the aspca in your area and get help. If you're there in person with your dog they will not turn you away.
August 29, 2014 1:10 pm

Dori on Pedigree Dog Food Recall OMG! You need to report this to the store you purchased the food, the manufacturer and the FDA immediately. So sorry to here about your dog. No, I do not believe that this is coincidental.
August 29, 2014 1:08 pm

Dori on Authority Dog Food (Dry) You need to contact the store where you purchased the food, the manufacturer of the food and the FDA if you feel that is called for also. Dog Food Advisor is a dog food review site, not a manufacturer of any foods whatsoever. They just get reviewed here, not made.
August 29, 2014 1:05 pm

Dori on Blue Buffalo Basics Grain Free (Dry) Did your vet say he thought it was food allergy or environmental allergy. If it's only his pads that are bothering him it could be something on your lawn, etc. Is he itchy anywhere, yeasty ears, bad breath, bad gas. Those are more signs of a food allergy or intolerance. Could be a pesticide or fertilizer that was spread on either your lawn or somewhere where you walk him. Have you changed any cleaning supplies that you use on your floors? I'm suspicious because it's only on his paws. Food…

August 29, 2014 12:53 pm

Nickinkra on How to Help Your Overweight Dog Lose Weight Take her to the vet dumbass! Just drop her off at the spca because you cant take care of her and she's probably going to die because of your inability to care for her.

Sherry Noss on Diamond Naturals (Dry) That is exactly why I urge you to check with some Dane BREEDERS in your area to see what they have had success feeding. They, breeders are going to know what has worked wonders for them and what hasnt and pass their knowledge on to you. They will also be able to tell you where to buy the products for your area. Giant Breed nutrition is very different from large breed nutrition and you can really do alot of long lasting damage when you start playing around with high calcium and high protein…

Heidi Oldenburg on Suggested Weight Loss Dog Foods Our pitbull was overweight (at 95 lbs), bloated and super gassy all the time. We started buying him grain free food and that helped. Plus, I started decreasing his food intake by a 1/4 cup every week. We found that instead of the 5 cups he was getting, he only needs 3 1/2 (not counting treats). But if you have a small dog, i would obviously decrease the amount in a much smaller quantity. As far as the dog pooping in the middle of the road, our little terrier would sometimes become lethargic, so…

sandy on Pedigree Dog Food Recall It's not a vaccine. ProHeart 6 is a long-acting 6-month heartworm preventative. It was taken off the market in the past but fairly recently re-introduced.
August 29, 2014 12:35 pm

Sherry Noss on Diamond Naturals (Dry) No 25% is not too high for a giant breed dog. I encourage you to contact breeders of your breed in question and inquire on some foods and levels that have worked for them over the years. They can give you valuable and trusted info. Vets/Vet Techs are great, too, but study a very limited time in nutrition and with all the changes in health issues, keeping up on changing nutrition often takes a back burner. If you are searching for info on the internet, I would check the source and how old…

Storm's Mom on Pedigree Dog Food (Canned) I figured as much. Did you transition to the "top brand" foods gradually, starting with, say 25% new food to 75% Pedigree, increasing the % of new food only once stools were firm? Did you use digestive enzymes and/or probiotics during the transition from one food to another? Heidi, your dogs got diarrhea because THEY are NOT healthy..it has nothing to do with the "top brands". The "top brands" did not give your dogs diarrhea. Pedigree doesn't "work" for your dogs..the fact that they couldn't…

LabsRawesome on Pedigree Dog Food Recall I was not aware that a heart worm vaccine even exists. My dogs get their core vaccs when they are puppies.And that is all. No boosters. Except for rabies, and only because it's required by law. Because when the shots are given the dog is protected for life. Just like we are from our baby shots.

Dixie Robinson on Best Dry Grain Free Dog Foods my pure breed 3 yr old boxer got deathly sick from a bad bag of hill's science diet grain free salmon only a month and a half ago. and trust me when i say this...even the vets were beyond upset when the seen how in such a short time the grain free salmon made my dog that bad. they contacted science diet as well as i did. and they gave us nothing but grief and wanted to try to put it off on anything but their own food. when the dog was fine till she injested a bowl of the food. then lethargy and…

sue66b on Off Topic Discussions Hi Gwen, have you tried Malaseb medicated shampoo, it stops their itch & kills any bacteria on their skin & doesnt strip their good oil from their skin, I also have to leave it on Patches paws for 2-5 mins when his paws are bad, after washing his paws with the Malaseb, his paws are nice & pink again no redness,by night, I have to bath every 5-7 days as soon as I see Patch really scratching, at first he use to run when he heard the bath running but it must help him cause he just waits…

Sarah Beaupre on Redmoon 1337 Dog Food (Dry) This line has been discontinued :( From their website: "As of August 1st 2014, RedMoon Pet Food will no longer have its RedMoon 1337 food for sale. RedMoon has decided to focus on its core business of delivering premium pet food to its Bricks and Mortar stores under its pet food brand called Waggers TenderMoist." Waggers is only cat food.

Ruth Kaempf on Wellness Complete Health (Dry) My doxies who eat everything and are not difficult at all developed diarrhea on Blue Wilderness so I returned the bag to the pet store. I had never fed them this food before but there was a Blue rep in the pet store who convinced me with talk and a $3. off coupon. So no more Blue of any kind for us.

Elayne on Diamond Naturals (Dry) I have now discovered that Costco's Kirkland brand dog food is made by Diamond and is readily available here in my area. The lamb and rice adult seems to meet all my requirements.

Tracy on Kibbles ‘n Bits (Dry) Try Instinct. Also, Stella & Chewy's. The Honest Kitchen is a good food, too.

Tracy on Kibbles ‘n Bits (Dry) Christy, it's the equivalent of eating Doritos or McDonalds everyday. Junk food. Of course he loves it.

Crazy4cats on Off Topic Discussions Hi Gwen- Sorry to hear your dog is having some tough issues. Mine have had mostly digestive issues. No itching or biting problems. I used about 1 1/2 lbs of lean ground turkey with 3 Tbs of mix. This fed two 80lb dogs 1 meal. I did lightly brown the meat. I chickened out to feed it raw! I did not use any supplements with this meal. I use Firm up dehydrated pumpkin and pectin when feeding kibble with canned. I also use Vetri-Pro BD currently when feeding kibble. The dogs loved the homemade meal…

Sewing Melissa on Victor Select Dog Food (Dry) I fed my dog Victors professional Bought a 40Lb bag, he did great on it for a while, then I noticed he lost more fur than usual. Pooped alot and drank ALOT of water. towards the end of the bag i noticed the food seem to be stale. when i put it in water it didnt absorb much. The end of bag coloring was off too. not sure we will continue to feed this. Edited to add, My dog eats alot of GRASS/WEEDS too when on this food.

Tammy Wimmer on Pedigree Dog Food Recall It concerns me these things are happening but in all honesty my dogs have eaten pedigree for about 18 years at least and i have never had an issue! Alot of foods get recalled including the high end foods and alot of human food gets recalled also, i feel horrible at those that have had an issue but only way to be sure ur pet is safe is cook for them urself and even that is not foolproof !

gwen on Off Topic Discussions Hi C4C, How much ground turkey did you use & how much does your dog weigh? I've been wanting to try this but our vet has put our baby on Hills zd. We were doing an elimination diet & she was still scratching, hives, shaking ears etc. We had her on Wellness Core GF then we transitioned her over to Nature's Variety LID Rabbit & still hives, scratching etc. & she got to the point she wouldn't eat it. Her stools were real black & hard. She started throwing up & she stopped…

Martha Armetna on Pedigree Dog Food Recall I don't think the FDA will do much, I had a dog die from the heart worm shot in 2004. My vet had told me the signs my Lady was having was from the shot, I gave it to her the first time, she got an enlarged heart, thought it was because she was older, was 11 yrs at that time. Then 6 months later I gave her the next shot, then she started to have seizure's, and she go to the point she would just wet on herself. So had to put her to sleep. They told me to call the FDA and let them know as they have…
