    not saying u have to spend 60 like the below commenter read into my comment. But 2 dollars bag tells me your pet is not as important to you as mine is to me. If that is all you can afford than that is better than starving the animal I supposse.

    So true. An owner is only worthy of having an animal if they are able to spend $60 a bag on dog food.

    Exactly! I believe there been six different canned food recalls in the last couple of weeks. Four with metal contamination made at Simmons’ Cannery and two with Phenobarbital made at Evanger’s.

  • Sheryl

    Crap food. I’m not surprised

  • Sheryl

    I’m pretty sure this has nothing to do with evangers

  • Nancy Jane Buffington-Horn

    just my opinion

  • Nancy Jane Buffington-Horn

    just my experience and my opinion

  • Nancy Jane Buffington-Horn

    this is just my opinion

  • Nancy Jane Buffington-Horn

    this is just my opinion

  • Christine Daley

    They must have been using euthanized animals for their beef supply. How else would it have gotten there?? Disgusting and very poor quality control by evangers!!

  • Christine Daley

    Depends. Yearly or every other year!!

  • Crazy4cats

    You have your dogs teeth cleaned yearly?

  • From what I can tell it’s been awhile since there has been a recall on 4Health, but I found one. I have to wonder if most dog foods have had some recall at some time over the years for one reason or another 🙁 http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-food-recall/diamond-dog-food-recall-expands-again/

  • Christine Daley

    All dogs need their teeth cleaned yearly no matter what they eat, wet or dry!! Of course if owner diligent with teeth brushing maybe less but most of us are not. Raw bones by primal help with teeth cleaning. The teeth need a professional cleaning under anesthesia periodically!! Just the way it is!! February is pet dental month awareness and many vets offer a discount!! Do it!! Clean teeth is a healthy pup!!

  • Melancholy

    Honey that’s not a good food at all. I recommend asking your veterinarian what would be a good fit for your dog.

  • Melancholy

    Probably crack heads.

  • Melancholy

    I 100% agree……there are so many many people who have no damn business owning an animal.

  • alvaro

    Whatever you do, don’t buy Kal Kan dry food, all my dogs started throwing up a day later.

  • disqus_SBl7sCuYS7

    Brush their teeth once a day (2 times a day is even better). It takes about 5 minutes. See YouTube for how to videos.
    Professional cleanings once or twice a lifetime, if needed, when recommended by the vet during annual exam.
    Problem solved.
    Btw: It is a myth that dry food is better for the teeth. There are other factors at play.

  • Ted Hoo

    Most dog owners don’t know it, canned dog food because it is soft and wet sticks in between dogs teeth and will cause tarter build up and lead to tooth decay over a period of time.

  • christy flanders

    My point was that all dogs and cats do not do well on the same kind of food. I would not feed raw because as I mentioned before, there are a lot of recalls on the raw food and pets have been domesticated so much that they have lost their ability to digest raw foods. That being said, my daughter has a Husky and they say breeds such as Huskies do better on either a raw diet or foods that are based on wild meat. Such as salmon, venison etc. She feeds Buffalo Blue Wilderness Salmon formula. Her dog does great on this particular food. The logic is that some breeds of dogs are more closely related to their wild ancestors (the wolf).

  • Chris Ridling

    From my experience I would agree, my TFTs can’t handle raw, boiled & drained ground beef & turkey with vegetables & egg is on the menu. I’ve tried raw & they throw it up. That being said I’m sure that some thrive on it.

  • Nancy Jane Buffington-Horn

    most of what i have seen working in the pet food industry when you find objects in a finished product is due to pis poor management wich causes low morral to the employees witch trickles down to the employees not really careing as long as they see that weekly pay check. what you see in the commercials selling dog food is not what you think it is.if a employee accidently messes up a product like droping a metal scraper out of his shirt pocket and it falls in to hundreds of dollars of product do you think he is going to tell hell know he needs his job so it goes on in hope it get through and out the door to the people like me and you. so dont kid yourself this happens if you by cheap are expensive dog food.and by the way that shirt the employees was wearing with a pocket was against company police but guess what the employer furnished that shirt.but they dont care until something like this happens. is all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$ you can bet on that

  • Nancy Jane Buffington-Horn

    and these stores need to get educated on where they have there pet food made

  • John Dozier

    My guess is that it is so cheap to begin with and people are getting smarter and buying better quality dog foods. It probably sat on the shelf too long!!

  • John Dozier

    I agree. My last dog a CKC mix(Sheba) lived 22 years. Cat(Jake) 17years.

  • John Dozier

    What is the most sad is that many of the people who feed their dogs the cheap dog food are unlikely to spend money having their dogs treated when they get sick. I worked in residential homes for 25 years and I saw so many overweight sick animals at people’s homes that needed care. Thankfully it wasn’t real often maybe 4 or 5 times a year out of a couple hundred homes. Still too often though.

  • John Dozier

    Animal cruelty to feed a dog this cheap cr#p!!

  • Christine Daley

    Not soo good!! Sorry!!

  • disqus_SBl7sCuYS7

    If he can mention homeopathic sites, I can mention science based veterinary medicine sites (btw: nothing is being sold at the blog I am providing a link for)
    I have found the site very helpful and like to share. http://skeptvet.com/Blog/

  • Chuck

    I have been sold on BilJacks and my animals are doing wonderful, buy lame food for your animals?- then you should not have animals, as a responsible adult you should know what is best for your own pet

  • mayberry

    Diamond makes many foods like all the manufacturers, but I have NEVER seen a recall on 4HEALTH. A premium dog food made for Tractor Supply. It is a 4 Star premium food.

  • christy flanders

    It’s odd to me that you recommend a raw diet for pets. If you notice the majority of recalls are on the raw pet foods. There are a lot of “cooked” dog and cat foods out there that are excellent for your pets. If you educate yourself on what ingredients are good for your pet you can make a good choice for your pets. IMO and my vets opinion, dogs and cats have been domesticated so much that they have lost their ability to digest raw foods. I think I will stick to my “cooked” pet foods. BTW my last dog lived to be 22 and my cat was 18. My 10 year old Bichons are thriving on their current dog food and my 5 year old cat still acts like a kitten.

  • Karen Regdos

    just so you know 4Health is made by Diamond who has the MOST recalls out of food manufacturer there is 🙁

  • AngryPatriot5

    People who don’t know better or who don’t care. So sad, isn’t it? Poor animals are always the ones who suffer. The best diet is organic raw and it’s the only species appropriate diet for both dogs and cats. Cooked foods are dead food with no enzymes. Enzymes are essential for health. Animals who eat cooked foods age faster and also have more disease. Check out vitalanimal.com, DogsNaturallyMagazine.com, dr-jordan.com for truthful info on food and to raise naturally reared animals. This food may be cheap, but you’ll spend so much more in vet bills vs. feeding the right diet and the rest of the natural rearing methods. We’ve had 2 small dogs live to be 19 yrs and 2 cats live to be 23 yrs; all had quality health.

  • Chicken Soup For the Puppy Lovers Soul is also a 4 star food. Chewy dot com sells that. Fair pricing too.

  • Kira’s Bouncer

    Probably. Same day recall on low quality, low cost chicken based dog foods? Good bet it’s made in the same place.

  • myneurotica

    Thank you for that info. I am going to check that out.

  • Griffy

    Now we know why.

  • Nancy Jane Buffington-Horn

    this is true example they also sell cheap to one retailer then sell to another same product but sell for more money i have seen it.

  • bohicasis

    same recall same time. would be my guess. A few plants mix multiple batches for multiple products.

  • mayberry

    4Health is a “4” Star food that can be purchased at Tractor Supply. Good quality food without all of the marketing and High price. NO corn, soy or Wheat. I have used it for over 6 years and I am a Rescuer, so I see many dogs. They all do great on this quality food.

  • disqus_SBl7sCuYS7

    What breed is your dog? Age? Activity level? Any special considerations?
    For grain free, I like Nutrisca or Dogswell, if you are on a budget, Newman’s Own Advanced.
    Check Chewy dot com for prices and reviews.

  • Aubryn

    I haven’t, am looking for recommendations.

  • Christine Daley

    Who buys this crap??

  • disqus_SBl7sCuYS7

    I just saw this brand in the reduced price section at Shaws.

  • Nancy Jane Buffington-Horn

    i think it is josh i called pet smart and they said it was made in the emporia ks are new jersey i cant get anyone to answer on the companion product i worked many year at the emporia plant and what a joke.

  • Josh
