    I HAVE NO IDEAHOW TO PROVE THAT MY VET , DID NOT DO A NECROPSY CAUSE I COULD NOT AFFORD IT & I HAVE FED MAINTAINENCE BY DIAMOND UP TIL THIS YEAR, I THOUGHT HE WAS GETTING FST SO REC OMENDED HEALTH4 BEINGS HE WAS A MONTH OR SO FROM TURNING 5YEARS OLD. THE VET SAID HIS WEIGHT WAS RIGHT ON AT 68.2 LBS & SHE TREATED HIM FOR UNKNOW CAUSE OF RASH & PUS POCKETS ON HIS BACKSIDE. 6 WEEKS LATER I GOT HIM BACK IN WHEN HE STARTED TO VOMIT & NOT EATING & OVER NIGHT I KNEW HIS KEDNEIES WERE SHUTTING DOWN & BETWEEN THE 2 VISITS WE DID A UA ON HIM & WAS FINE. HE WAS DYING & I KNEW JUST 10 DAYS AFTER HIS 5TH DAY. EXCEPT WHEN WE WERE HOMELESS 9 MONTHS HE ATE ONLY MAINTAINENCE BY DIAMOND,BUT WHEN WE HAD A PLACE TO LIVE I DOUBLE COOKED CHICKEN & MADE DOG USING FROZEN VEGGIES, BRN RICE & OLD FASHED OATMEAL THAT WAS LAST TO ABSORB THE EXCESS WATER AS IT COOKED MY FORMER NEIGHBOR ATE A CONTAINER I GAVE FOR THEIR DOGS. I HAVE READ THE RECALLS & HAD TO GOOGLE THE MAINTAINENCE DOG FOOD BY DIAMOND RECALLED FOOD TO FIND THE 2012 RECALL. BUT THEY SAY WA. STATE DID NOT GET ANY SHIPPED HERE! THE LAST 2 BAGS I BOUGHTHEALTHY4. & IT HAS HAD A LOT OF RECALLS I FOUND. ANY IDEAS? HOW TO PROVE THE MY VET SAID WHAT CAUSED HIS KEDNEY FAILURE KILLED MY WORLD, HARLY! WE WERE INSEPERABLE AS HE WAS MY SERVICE DOG I HAVE NEVER SPENT THAT MUCH TIME WITH MY OWN SON EVEN BEFORE HE STARTED SCHOOL!I CANT PROVE HARLY ONLY ATE 1 FOOD ALONG WITH HALF HOMEMADE TO MAINTAINENCE! I WAS VERY STRICT MAKING HARLYS FOOD AS IF I WERE GOING TO EAT OR SERVE IT, IVE CANNED & FROZEN FOODS FOR YEARS, ANY IDEAS!?

    I’m so sorry for your loss, but even if you kept every receipt, you still couldn’t prove that something else entirely didn’t cause the kidney failure. There are so many things that can cause kidney failure.

    With the all capitals I can’t follow what you’re writing. Your first sentence: are you saying you expected your vet to do a necropsy even though you couldn’t afford it?

    I CAN NOT READ ALL OF NORMAL TYPING CAUSE I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED! DOES DOUBLE SPACING BETWEEN WORDS HELP, INKEDMARIE?

    MY VET KNOWS OF MY LIMITED DISABILITY INCOME? WE BOTH KNEW I COULD NOT AFFORD A NECROPSY. I HAD ALREADY RACKED UP A $200.+ BILL & NOW OWE CLOSE TO $300. NECROPSY ALONE COSTS $300?

    I CAN NOT EVEN PROVE MAINTAINENCE BY DIAMOND WAS SHIPPED TO WA. STATE, CAUSE I BOUGHT IT HERE BUT DIAMOND DOES NOT LIST THEIR RECALLED MAINTAINENCE FOOD FROM 2012 OF EVER BEING SHIPPED!

    I ONLY BOUGHT MAINTAINENCE BY DIAMOND SINCE HARLY COMING TO LIVE WITH ME IN 2010. VET SAID LONG TERM TOXISITY CAUSED THE LIVER FAILURE! MY HOMADE FOOD COOKED AT LEAST. 3 HOURS AFTER ITS SECOUND OR LAST. TIME OR CONTINUES COOKING!

    I AM. SO. HEART. BROKEN & TOTALLY LOST NOT TO MENTION NOT ONLY HAVING MY PAIN MEDS CUT, CAUSE I DO NOT HAVE CANCER,, WA. STATE LAW IS, NON CANCER CHRONIC PAIN PATIENTS. ARE NOT LEGALLY ABLE TO TAKE MORE THAN 120MG OF OPIOIDS A DAY! I HAVE 3 OF THE MOST PAINFULL NEURO DISEASES, RSD REFLEX SYMPATHETIC DYSTROPHY, POST HERPETIC NEUROLOGY,, AFTER AFFECTS OF. SHINGLES, FIBROMYALGIA, MAJORITY OF DISKS BULGING OR HERNIATED. & DEGENERATING WITH ARITHITIS. SP? MY. BODY BURNS 24/7/ 365. BEING CUT. FROM BASICALLY BOUT HALF MY MEDS & HARLY SAVED MY LIFE MORE THAN ONCE CAUSE OF HEMAPLEGIC MIGRAINES & THE MILD FORM OF LOCKED-IN SYNDROME, MINE IS MY BRAIN CAN DEAL WITH ONLY. SO MUCH PAIN & IT SHUTS DOWN MY BODY ALSO NON24 I CAN NOT TELL DAY FROM. NIGHT!

    SORRY. BUT HARLY. WAS. MY LIFE, I DOUBT IL. LIVE. A YR NOW WITHOUT HIM & ALL HE. DID FOR. ME!
    SORRY FOR RAMBLING! HARLY WAS. LITTERALLY EVERYTHING TO MY LIFE, HE ALERTED ME TO MY PAIN BEFORE IT WOULD HIT ME!

    Yes, that helps a lot but I’m still confused. Did you have a necropsy? If not then there is no way to know if the food was the problem. I’m not sure what you’re hoping for; are you thinking Diamond is going to admit wrong doing and pay you?

    There is no way the vet could say it was long term toxic exposure without a necropsy . He or she may have said its one possible cause.
