    my yorkie/chihuahua wouldn’t touch it. She does well on Royal Canin dry and wet mixed. hope your little one gets better soon

  • Jeff johnston

    I have been using this food off and on for a few years.

    My Yorkie/chihuahua would eat it for a few weeks and then stop. She is very fussy.

    She would occasionally act like she had a stomach ache. I thought someone was giving her table scraps.

    She has been sick for about 2 months. Several vet appointments as well as almost a thousand dollars of testing and nothing found yet

    I started to think about the food. I honestly think that this food was the only consistent thing in her illnesses.

    I make her food and I am hoping that she will be getting better soon.

    I would suggest that you not allow your dog to eat this stuff. Period.

  • Chelsea Majeske

    I just found this in my dogs food not a clue as to what it is but I will NOT be buying this product again! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/34e69fc7335260b0da6c4737f7cb4db37b0bde402b70b65858e6101a1e7a8451.jpg

  • spychic

    OMG, so lucky you caught that

  • spychic

    my dog freaking loves this food and i know it is garbage. but tis is one of 3 wet foods mixed into her dry cup. to actually have bits of plastic garbage in it is not okay. i will keep alert but the way i heat it first and spoon it out by hand, it would be hard to miss. thanks for the heads up!!

  • Marianna Vanderhoof

    Just found this piece of plastic in my dogs food. March 2017. Very scary. I also did not realize this food is not very nutritious. I called SAMS Club where I bought it and they said they would “decide” whether or not to remove the cases from their shelves. It is so upsetting! Please make sure you check your dogs food before serving it to them. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/771ca7566af56c322214aee8147602f83d94b5471030ea1cd1552870db39ce48.jpg

  • Teiawana Burton

    I have a 16yr. 9mo. Westie and I occasionally feed him frozen veg., cooked grits, cooked white rice, raw carrots, spaghetti noodles(no sauce), with his Dry Pedigree dog food! YES WESTIE’S ARE PICKY!

    Thank ALL of you for the feedback for this brand cause, this is his special treat and I give this to his guess at his Birthday Parties. Was going to try Ceaser’s Dry, but now, I don’t know. Will purchase a small bag if i do. If he don’t like it, I will donate it.

  • Michelle Bennett Imhausen

    I have recently switched to Blue Limited Ingredient Turkey and Potato ! My Yorkie Loves it and it’s Grain Free !

  • MH

    I am sorry for your lose and for Jan and her yorkie. I had lost my yorkie 5 years ago he was exceptional friend . so I got my 2 yorkie after Tucker disappeared. I have started cooking for them as BooboI has been sick since I got him not from food i dont mind cooking for them.These food company’s don’t understand Chip &Boo are my kids. I’m old now, my 2 friends are my life now. To hear how this food is made makes me upset that I haven’t given this any thought ! But I’m glad I’ve found out about this and will do more now .

  • D G

    I totally agree with MH. I purchased this dog food at a grocery store and enter my preferred card number prior to finalizing my purchase. Since they track your spending you would think they would send some sort of notification or at the very least post signs on the store shelves regarding the recall. This is the only food I fed my schnauzer who recently got extremely sick, very quickly, and died.

  • News Reporter

    I feed my small dogs this as a treat. The problem with this type of food Cesar’s puts out is that it comes from animal carcases. Means they are scooped up with front end loaders at the place of death, brought to a primary processor to make into wet slop aka Meat By-Products. These pet food plants have filters which are suppose to catch metals, plastics, etc. but can’t get it all. For the high price we pay for each cup ($0.70 Walmart), you’d expect a lot better quality control.

  • Jesyka Gonzalez

    I will never ever buy this food again ! I found a 3 inch cable with wires and all inside the the food ! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/296e1fdc2ae690aa18217f990d852af5bee347a8582e47c61709fb3694b19871.jpg

  • Jane

    My Yorkie had very poor scary results from dental pre op blood draw indicating poor liver function. He is now better and I was feeding him that exact Cesar once or twice a week as that was his favorite. I have stopped using that. I wonder if that was the cause. When his condition improved the vet said maybe it was a “transient toxin” that caused it. I can’t help but wonder if it was related to that recalled food. I chop it up before feeding and never saw any plastic material.

  • Pat

    Neither Science Diet or Royal Canine are rated very high in their formula or ingredients. Check out this website: http://www.reviews.com/dog-food/

  • Pat

    Royal Canin is not rated as a very good food. Check out the top rated dog foods, some of them are Orijen, Acana, Eagle Pack, Fromm, Nature’s Logic, Stella & Chewy’s, Wysong, Pinnacle, Primal and Hi-Tek Naturals, in that order.

  • Pat

    I checked all the containers we had and none of the recall numbers were on them but losing our beloved dog caused me to research all dog and cat foods as we have a 6-year-old cat. I’m ordering all of my cat food from http://www.chewy.com which sells the top 15 rated brands of both dog and cat foods. Neither PetSmart OR Petco sell any of the top-rated foods and consumers should do their research!

  • Jan

    I just lost my 10 month old yorkie due to the same issues. Developed overnight as with your Maltese. This has been a living nightmare.

  • Pat

    We just lost our 5-year-old Maltese to a seizure disorder that developed overnight, wondering if the Little Caesar’s was the cause as she had been healthy up until the time I started giving her this food.

  • MH

    I think this a bunch of CRAP that even stores like Petsmart don’t even alert you to problems with the food you buy for your pets . I’m just finding out about this as I buy buy this for my Tea Cup Yorkies and I’m sure that I have bought 40 of the recall food for my little friends. This should be be put out and have sign’s at pet food stores so that they can put up alerts for the people that do buy this. So for now I am changing to a more pricey food for my guy’s as I don’t want them having any problems because company’s can’t let you know there is a problem. They don’t even bother to give a discount for there food…

  • Acacia Rogers

    Well of course that’s perfectly fine. Also considering shelter life is meant to be temporary and such.

  • Lindsey Walker

    I volunteer at my local shelter we seem to be always low on food and we run only on donation we take what we can get food wise, we cannot be picky.

  • aimee

    Hi Acacia,

    Did you forgot to cite the research that led you to believe those things to be true or is it that you have nothing to support your claims.

    Unless there is data published in peer reviewed journals that support the claims you are making you are simply spreading a lot of misinformation.

  • Pitlove

    You didn’t say anything. She was offended by my comment because she felt I directed it at her. Guilty conscience or what idk, but it wasn’t for her.

  • Amateria

    Well it appears she’s gone as her comments have been deleted and her name changed to guest when we replied to her.

    I was hoping to keep her here with my comment, but I guess she was deadset to leave.

  • sharron

    i really don’t know what i said that was offensive to DogFoodie – i was just talking to her in a general way, i wasn’t directing anything right at her – she was talking about her dog and i was talking about mine – i certainly try not to be rude in my comments – i might still post but i must be careful how i do it in the future

  • Amateria

    I’m going to have to side with Pit for this one, none of what he/she (I’m sure you’ve mentioned it and I’ve forgotten go figure :p) wrote was rude in any way, I’ve dealt with rude heck I’ve been in the middle of it on here on my bad days where I couldn’t help but react, but that to me did not read rude at all.

    Unlike you and Sharron I’m going to continue posting, I learn a lot here and sometimes maybe my advice isn’t widely accepted because I still don’t know a lot about dog problems, but I know the basics, at the end of the day you need to take what everyone here says as their opinion, but you shouldn’t blindly follow anyone’s opinion on here without first consulting a vet, as I’ve noticed some people do.

    This and reading other websites has officially become my hobby and be it through good or bad days I enjoy it either way.

  • Pitlove

    No one was hostile towards you DogFoodie. My comment is sadly true of many people on this website, regulars and new comers.

  • sharron

    i hope i didn’t cause you to stop posting
    if i did, again i am very sorry – i was replying to my dog as well – i certainly wasn’t trying to be offensive – i feel badly that you feel this way – like you i won’t post anymore, because it seems that whenever i post it’s taken the wrong way

  • DogFoodie

    Yet, when someone does try products from “The Big 3,” and has a poor experience, they’re to be met with hostility that’s somehow justified?

    Pitlove said, “Its to be assumed at this point that if you use a food for your pets from one of those companies, your comments will be met with a barriage [sic] of insults.” Quite obviously, the same can be said for those who have posted that they have tried “The Big 3” products and be met with disaster.

    I spoke of facts within my knowledge. I wasn’t disrespectful to anyone.

    I have tried a Purina product and a Royal Canin product for my dog, and both products resulted in very bad experiences. Please note, I said my dog.

    After six years of posting here, I’m through. It’ll be my pleasure to leave behind the stalking, harassment, threats and general rudeness.

  • disqus_SBl7sCuYS7

    Of course diet and lack of exercise play a role, however, many of the conditions you mentioned have a genetic component.
    One of my dogs was fed a good diet, walked at least 3 miles a day, despite this she didn’t make it to her 10th bd.
    Hemangiosarcoma, seems to show up in certain breeds….puppy mills and backyard breeders that continue to breed dogs despite these conditions don’t help.
    PS: The family dog we had when I was a kid ate one can of Calo (equivalent to Alpo) a day and lived to be 18!

  • Pitlove

    Hi Acacia-

    I do not “think” it, I know it. Several ACVN nutritionists have their own websites and they make their recommendations for what they feed their own pets and what they recommend to clients who are referred to them public knowledge. Hill’s, Royal Canin and Purina are all on that list.

    Veterinary nutritionists are in fact specialists in the field of nutrition, and hold Ph.D’s in this field.

    You have made claims that corn based dog foods cause an array of health issues and yet when asked for research to back your statement could not provide any. Your obersavations and anecdotal experience over a little under a decade does not count as fact or empirical data, though you would like it to. And it certainly does not qualify you as a “pet nutrition expert”.

  • Acacia Rogers

    Allergic reactions (itchy skin, dryness, ear yeast), diebetes, blood sugar and weight issues, early aging, tumors, coat dullness, over eating due to malnutrition, certain cancers(caused or aggravated by), digestive irregularities or discoloredness, and ultimately a shorter life span on average due to feeding a biologically inappropriate food. The list goes on.

  • Amateria

    Yeah pvp and raiders maybe, I didn’t raid until wotlk and funnily enough I was raiding in blue gear but they kept me around because I was top healer fun times.

    I would hope that most of the guys here love their pets and don’t treat them as simple furniture or some petty decoration because those people are just awful.

    I can’t believe it’s been an hour since I replied haha, I was writing some more reviews on pet warehouse, I wrote like 3 of them I think and it took me 1 hour to do so, long time for 3 reviews, but 3 totally amazing ones, I want people to look at that review and see it as a genuine review of the product to feel that they can buy that food or treat and be happy with it, not like some reviewers who only leave a like for the shipment quality like really? We want to know if the food is good not how well they shipped your products…

  • Pitlove

    I was involved in high rated pvp. Totally different community. Always been toxic.

    We are all here because we love our pets.

  • Amateria

    I’ve been playing it for 12 years I never remember it being bad, people were always happy to help you and these days 1 wrong move or bad dps or healing = an instant kick, not everyone is geared top of the range and yet no one has patience these days for anyone not as good as they are.

    Maybe it should be different but quiet a lot of the time it’s not, I don’t reply much anymore for fear I might hurt someone’s feelings.

    I’m mostly just on pet food reviews now and adding reviews for the foods I’ve brought from my pet warehouse, I think I’m the only one leaving reviews right now which is kinda cool.
    Well that and chain watching shows.

  • Pitlove

    I played WoW for 10 years lol. That community has always been that way.

    This is a community of fellow pet lovers. It should be different here.

  • Amateria

    Yeah but it’s really not just that, there’s a lot more to it, everyone’s becoming as the Warcraft community would call it toxic lately, every time I write stuff to someone on my game I am scared s**tless of their reaction because I’ve been met quiet a lot lately with a harsh comment right back at me even though nothing I said was bad I was just playing.

    Than what happened all of a sudden with Eden my friend of 10 years and than that guild leader going ape s**t on me for cracking a joke, the thousands of forum rages going on and the generally very toxic community as of late, it was never this bad, you could crack jokes all day and people would get it, not anymore.

    Lots of fights on DFA lately as well, some spanning over several weeks, rather than just agree to disagree as no one is going to win that war if they tried.

    There’s definitely a change in the world and it’s definitely not for the better.

  • Pitlove

    Many people on this website are notorious for their hostile reactions to the choice of food someone has made when it involves “The Big 3”. Its to be assumed at this point that if you use a food for your pets from one of those companies, your comments will be met with a barriage of insults. I’d say, at least here on DFA, that is what you’re noticing.

  • Amateria

    I’ve noticed that everywhere in real life more than I have online, it’s like the world suddenly tipped upside down and no one can take a joke anymore or understand opinions anymore.
    Everyone is taking offence to everything! It’s like what’s suddenly up? What’s changed?

  • sharron

    i wasn’t being critical of your comment – just sharing experiences that’s all –
    i have no reason to be critical of you or your comments

  • DogFoodie

    I understand, Sharron; nor was I trying to tell anyone what to feed their dogs. I was just stating my experience as you stated yours. I wasn’t minimizing your positive experience with the product. I was simply stating that mine was completely different. I ended up with a very sick dog that was vomiting and had loose stool as a direct result of feeding a Royal Canin product. The vet said that the food was the cause; and before anyone takes exception to that, the vet was a Western medicine Purdue vet.

    It’s almost impossible to say anything around here anymore.

  • DogFoodie

    I understand, Sharron. I was just stating my experience as you stated yours. I wasn’t minimizing your positive experience with the product. It’s almost impossible to say anything around here anymore.

  • sharron

    so Lexee “doing well” on RC isn’t good enough? how perfect does it have to get

  • sharron

    i’m not one for telling people what they should feed their pets, that’s their business – i’m just saying that RC works for Lexee – as you know i have tried many different brands, she either refuses to eat them, or they cause her to have really loose stools, not diarheaa but borderline. Last week i gave her the Acana Small Breed which she ate but brought it up about an hour later – she has never had those issues when fed RC – and i’m not going to get on the bandwagon claiming that RC is the best,
    i wouldn’t do that with any food – Lexee’s happy and healthy

  • DogFoodie

    On the other hand I tried Royal Canin for my otherwise very healthy dog, who couldn’t stop vomiting when he ate it. Ended up at the vet, who said it was the food. That was a very expensive experiment and a relatively lengthy recovery for my dog. It’s not for everyone.

  • sharron

    what health issues

  • Pitlove

    Hi Acacia-

    I have no idea what your credentials are, but those who have earned Ph.D’s in the field of veterinary nutrition and are board certified through the ACVN recommend Hill’s and Royal Canin. And these are people with many decades of experience and higher education behind them.

  • aimee

    Hi Acacia,

    What unavoidable, health issues do you believe corn based foods cause?. Please cite the research that supports your statements.

  • aimee

    I disagree with that entire statement.

  • Acacia Rogers

    Just because something is “going well” and “she likes it” does not mean it’s healthy, just means the health issue hasn’t hit her yet. It’s inevitable that a corn based food will cause health issues. It’s almost unavoidable. I really wouldn’t argue with me. I’ve had almost a decades experience working with pet nutrition.

  • sharron

    my dog eats royal canin, dry and wet. it’s from the vet but it’s not for a medical issue – just regular RC – she does much better on this brand than any of the others – i have tried many over the years – it really keeps her digestive system working well and she likes it and eats it consistently -she’s doesn’t have any issues from being fed this food and that works for me!

  • Acacia Rogers

    no one should ever feed this brand in my opinion. its just repurposed trash. And im sick of hearing people say their dogs wont eat anything else. That’s like saying you have no choice but to feed your kids Mcdonalds because its all they like. That’s not love, that’s laziness

  • Acacia Rogers

    Hate to tell ya but science diet and royal canin are low quality foods and will cause many health issues. I would switch. Vets only recommend it for business relationship purposes, not for health.

  • roob2u2

    Michelle, the only obvious thing I see is that your comment is not nice .

  • Amateria

    Why would anyone tell you to use dry on a diabetic dog? You have to lower the carbs not increase them, I read that the human carb intake for diabetics was 45g, that is a very hard number to eat to be honest.

    Some peoples dogs insulin doses were severely dropped after cutting out the carb loaded foods completely.

  • Eileen Corsino

    Royal Canine has a dry food that I used on my diabetic dog. You need a prescription or buy at vets office

    Thank you for the warning. I do buy these on occasion for my Puggle for a treat added to his kibble.

    Um, yes it was.

    Ummm… my comment about the recalled food is above. Thank you.

  • Wanda L Stafki

    Your welcome Tara 🙂

  • Val Short

    I’m so glad I received that recall notice. My ShiTzu passed away last year at almost 20 hrs. I fed him primarily Cesar and he loved it. really only thing he’d eat. since then I rescued a Chihuahua who is really picky; the only thing she’ll eat willingly is the shepherd’s food (purina) and some Cesar’s. I’m definitely going to change that. Thanks for doing the recall alerts

  • bojangles

    Hi thenut,

    “Sorry, but RC (all kibble really) is the equivalent of a cereal bar and a vitamin pill. That’s not better than getting nutrition from real food.”

    So true 🙂

    Text in parentheses added by me.

  • Amateria

    But at the end of the day and just like BC said that answer is based on your experiences and your issues, not your dogs or cats issues, to say you like RC because of your fibro has literally nothing to do with your dog.

    My nerve problem is similar to fibro when it comes to touch, but that doesn’t mean I should feed my dog RC because I have problems with meat, which I don’t, haven’t been very interested in it lately but I still like it.

    I may have gotten that a bit wrong? Lol, I re read what everyone wrote, but I still see a bit of what I wrote as a reply to be honest.

  • theBCnut

    Your fibromyalgia, while it’s really rough for you, does not make RC better than real food for your dog. Sorry, but RC is the equivalent of a cereal bar and a vitamin pill. That’s not better than getting nutrition from real food.

    I hope you are able to figure out, nutritionally, what will help you the most with your own issues. I have a good friend with Fibromyalgia and I know how hard it is to deal with and how it makes so many thing more difficult.

  • sharron

    didn’t know that dog food and people food were the same

  • sharron

    i have a yorkie/chihuahua 7 yrs old – been picky most of the 7 yrs -i currently feed her zoe dry turkey dry with performatrin ulta canned turkey stew – i soak the dry in warm water, drain, and then mix the wet with it – she isn’t as picky now but she sure was when she was younger – i had her on royal canin for quite some time,
    then she got bored with it – i have tried most of the dog foods made whether it be dry, wet, raw, dehydrated and home cooked and she likes and does well on this combo – i change the wet food frequently rather than the dry since she prefers wet

  • Karin Straub

    I can’t get my westie, to eat anything else, picky, have to put shredded cheese on top. Anyone who has a dog, that looks at food, and walks away, I have spent a lot of money, help!

  • Michelle Bennett Imhausen

    Because I have auto immune diseases and rarely eat! I’m unable to eat meat At all because it makes Fibromyalgia worse!

  • Michelle Bennett Imhausen

    Some people don’t allow others to have opinions lol

    There is no such thing as teacup yorkies!

    Obviously you care nothing about your pet!

    My vet suggests science diet and Royal Canine and my dog food is rated 4.8 out of 5:) my dog is healthy and VERY spoiled! She eats better than most kids!

    Thank you so much sweetheart…

  • Wanda L Stafki

    So sorry for your lose 🙁

  • Wanda L Stafki

    Nothing wrong with coming here to talk to others about opinions on dog food .

  • Sam Goulet

    IM NOT YELLING, IM VISUALLY IMPAIRED.
    FEED MY SERVICE DOG THE BEST, HOME MADE VET APPROVED. AFTER A STORE BOUGHT DOG FOOD I WAS FEEDING WAS NOT MADE PUBLIC!!!

    MANY DOG FOOD FOOD RECALLS ARE STILL NOT MADE PUBLIC!!!

    CHICKEN, WHITE RICE, MY VETS OPINION IS BROWN RICE CAN BE HARD TO DIGEST. CARROTS, OATMEAL, POWERED MUSTARD, POWDERED GARLIC, POWDERED GINGER & POWDERED CEYLON CINNAMON.
    AFTER I WASH & BAKE THE CHICKEN, SCRUB FRESH CARROTS RUN THROUGH THOSE THROUGH A FOOD PROCESSOR. THEN COOK THE CHICKRN A SECOND TIME WITH ALL THE OTHER INGREDIENTS.
    VET INSISTED ON HALF STORE BOUGHT FOOD THAT WILL SLOW ANY DAMAGE IS I END UP WITH TAINTED FOOD AGAIN THAT IS NOT PUBLICIZED.
    FOUND THE RECIPE ON LINE RESEARCHING GRAPE SEED OIL. WHICH I ALSO USE WHEN COOKING EFFYS FOOD & USE IT ON HER BACK & AROUND HER HEAD TO COMBAT FLEAS.
    EVEN THE SO CALLED NATURAL FLEA PRODUCTS, SHE REACTS LIKE I LIT HER ON FIRE, SAME WITH MY FIRST SERVICE DOG.
    ALWAYS RESEARCH EVERYTHING & TALK TO YOUR VET. I WAS JUST TOLD BY A SO CALLED 30YR DOG TRAINER, THAT I SHOULDN’T GIVE MY DOG GARLIC, TOLD HIM MY VET FEEDS HER DOGS WHOLE GARLIC. LOTS OF OLD MISINFORMATION.
    AFTER HARLY DIED FROM KIDNEY FAILURE, MY VET SAID WHEN YA FEEL UP TO IT GOOHLE THE BRAND & NAME OF THE FOOD YA HAVE FED HIM. I HAD CHANGED HIS FOOD AS HE HIT ADULTHOOD, BOTH FOODS HAD BEEN RECALLED. CAUSE I COULDNT AFFORD ANIMAL AUTOPSY I COULD NOT SUE. MY VET WAS ASKED TO RESEARCH & AUTOPSY ANIMALS FROM THAT MAJOR FOOD TAINTED FOOD OUTRAGE!!

    RESEARCH EVERYTHING!! JUST CAUSE ITS FOR SELL FOR YOUR BELOVED FUR KIDS DOESNT MEAN ITS GOOD FOR THEM.MY VET SAID THAT SHE HAS SEEN RAWHIDE CAUSE BLOATING, WHICH KILLS DOGS EVERY DAY & YET DOLD EVERY WHERE…..

    LOVE MY SERVICE DOG & AS ALL OF YA, WANT ONLY THE BEST FOR MY EFFY.

  • theBCnut

    Maybe I’m missing something, but was there a point to your comment? Is there something wrong with someone being relieved they didn’t poison their dog? Your comment wasn’t about the recalled food in ANY way, so why did you bother to say anything?

  • theBCnut

    And why did you come here and post, since it obviously wasn’t to have a conversation about dog food?

  • theBCnut

    What, precisely, is it about RC that makes you think it is better than real food? Or do you not eat real food?

  • Upupandup

    Seriously? Clearly YOU can’t afford to feed you pets the best of the best because anything Royal Canine is TRASH! You know NOTHING! Why are you even commenting, again? Oh. Okay!

  • Upupandup

    You’re very ignorant and rude. I’ve read every single comment your judgmental misinformed a** has wrote on this post and I pity you. TURN YOUR MOBILE DEVICE OFF AND GO TO SLEEP, LADY!

  • Amateria

    Everything in Royal is likely in all the food you eat, only your food has human grade standards at least I hope it does, unlike Royal.

    So all in all you are eating better than your dog by feeding Royal.

    Not if its eating Royal Canine, unless your eating out of a dumpster, lol. In fact it would probably be better for your dog to be eating what you eat! fresh unprocessed food is always better that processed kibble.

  • Michelle Bennett Imhausen

    My dog eats better than me! Js

  • Babslynne

    Well then you shouldn’t own a pet because Royal Canine is one of the worst overrated dog foods available, and you should know that if the looked at the ingredients and the ratings.

    Before buying any dogfood, check online for recalls and also read the ingredients on the pacage. You can get good quality dogfood and not have to spend a fortune doing so. High pricing does not guarantee good quality. I buy a holistic dog kibble called ACTR1UM (for small breeds). There’s never been any recalls on it and my miniature dachshund loves it. It costs $12.00 +tax for a small bag which lasts about a month give or take. I can only buy it at Walmart because it is made for and distributed only to Walmart stores. (BTW Everyone, no matter their income, deserves to have a pet.) If you are on a low income and have/want a pet I suggest setting up a separate bank account just for your pet. Each week/month deposit whatever you can into the account so that if there is a medical emergency etc, you’ll have money for vaccinations, vet bills, prescriptions, food or supplies for your pet.

    I’m sorry for your loss but if you had a tiny Yorkie it was a product of a small Yorkie [runt] being bred with a larger Yorkie! Which is mean! If anyone says to you teacup Yorkie they lie!

  • Michelle Bennett Imhausen

    My dog eats ONLY Royal Canine! You shouldn’t have a pet if you can’t afford to feed them the best! My Yorkie is 2 and eats better than me!

  • Michelle Bennett Imhausen

    Which is more important the money or your pet?

  • Tara Hazlett

    I also lost my toy Yorkie who was 7 years old and was very tiny and needed to be fed more than just the dry food she was on, Hills Science Diet. She was completely healthy just needed to put on some weight plus it’s easier for her to chew and I was feeding her this thinking I am helping her and all that happened was she became very sick and passed away and I didn’t understand why until now! I mourn her as my child not just a pet! God I wish I would have NEVER fed her any of this food! How can you be so careless to let this happen.. To you it’s just a recall to me it’s a loss of my baby girl and my best friend! Smdh…..

    My dog died about 3 months ago and this is what we were feeding her. Kidney failure. Vet didn’t understand how she could get sick so quickly.

    In a dog food ingredients mood today, checked out their website, some truly awful ingredients were found and no signs of cat food whatsoever.

  • Amateria

    Because everyone here likes to make their opinions known, you’ll notice every dog foods comment section has this and there’s nothing wrong with it.

    It allows some of us to tell people what we think, rather than keeping it inside to fester, as we all know festering is not good.

    I don’t have anyone I can talk to about dog food stuff, this place allows me to blow off steam or just converse with other people, not just my parents.

    I find veins to be funny when it comes to me, if it’s in my food I loose my appetite straight away and I toss the food immediately so I don’t have to look at the vein anymore, or even think that it was in my mouth a second ago.

    When it comes to giving veins from a roast chicken to Anja I think nothing of it, she loves the veiny dark juicy meat the most.

  • Tatiana Beaverhausen

    My little Yorkie needed to eat every few hours due to her small size but was very picky. I would mix a small teaspoon of Cesar’s in with her dry food, and she gobbled it up! Stopped doing this once the Vet said Cesars is the equivalent of McDonald’s – once in a while is okay, but not to be fed every day as main source of food!

  • Pitlove

    She’s great! Being a little fussy about her food lately, but otherwise good 🙂

  • Rhyanna

    i feed my dogs this, its the only kind they eat. while i buy some from the grocery store, i also buy from amazon. now I have a lot of containers to check, I can’t afford to throw away the food as I am on a very limited, tight budget.

  • Julie Adams

    Where was the quality control? Weren’t they checking samples from each machine before they shipped this food out? I worked in a factory assembly line facility as a quality control officer, and we had to check every machine multiple times per shift. This lack of quality control just should not happen.

  • billdeserthills

    Gee You don’t look or sound like the moderator–Is there a point to what you are saying??

  • valleygirl43

    I remember their marrow bone treats from last year had plastic fibers in them and were recalled. We stopped buying those marrow bones for their treats. There is no reason for plastic and junk getting into the pet foods. Hopefully they inform the public of ‘all’ the contaminants that make their way into the pet foods. 🙁

  • valleygirl43

    I think they were only referring to the filet mignon packages…not the ones that are ‘mixed’ with filet mignon. Also, it is only certain batch numbers. You can go back to the post and check the batch numbers against the packages you have.

  • valleygirl43

    We fed our min. poodle Little Cesars for many years of his life, and he lived to over 16 years. However, I find the quality of the Cesars has really gone down. There are now big chucks of fat and huge veins and sometimes what looks like giblets…not ground up, just being used as ‘fillers’ to reduce the amount of actual food in the container. I’m very disappointed in the lack of quality. Cutting costs will cause them to lose a lot of customers. We cherish our pets, and want them to have good quality food and ‘safe’ foods.

    My YT has eaten Ceasors for a long time . Today that will change .
    I have filet mignon w/bacon &spots potato . The number is NOT included why?

  • Jacques

    No, intelligence is. ;P

  • Sam

    Tell that to Corey Mondello.

  • Sam

    Anti-Christian. hmm. Is Hitlery Clinton your hero?

  • Leslie Carlson Hight

    My dog was sick off snd on. Took her totally 0ff. Ceasars and almost immediately got better. Meanwhile spent mega bucks on meds.

  • disqus_SBl7sCuYS7

    If you want to try kibble, just presoak in water overnight in the fridg and mix with a little of their favorite canned food/topper.

  • dhd123

    I have 8 dogs most are old with no teeth, I feed them Cesar every day. Makes me feel good about it since Mars is self reporting and voluntarily recalling the product. Thanks for the heads up!

  • oliveoil

    Can’t we all just try to get along? 😉

  • Linda7647

    I guess my post was pretty much the same as Wanda’s – pointless.

    LOL

  • And…. I’m glad I don’t give my dog this stuff either!

  • Comment sections are for comments. What’s the point of replying to someone’s you don’t approve of?

  • Crazy4cats

    It does not. How is your cat?

  • Crazy4cats

    I don’t think that Cesar makes cat food. I hope your friend isn’t feeding their cat dog food. It does not contain enough taurine to keep cats healthy. You can sign up for cat food recall alerts on “the truth about pet food” website. I hope this helps!

  • Linda7647

    Greatly appreciate the information. My dogs eat mostly dry kibble, but every now and then they get a special treat and they love the Cesar meals.

  • Linda7647

    Was there a point to your comment then? If you don’t feed your dogs a food that’s being reported as recalled, then why bother saying anything?

  • Pitlove

    Hi Paula-

    I can not currently remember if this website lists recalls on both dog and cat food or dog food only. You can however, check the FDA website for cat food recalls.

  • Paula Hoy

    Greatly appreciate letting us all know about things like this. I don’t give my dogs this but I do know of someone who does and what about the Cesar cat food? I also know a person who gives her cats that. Thank you,,,,,, n
