You do know DCM is linked to grain free foods.??
You really need to get them off the grain free foods. Has been linked to DCM cardial issue’s
Yes i would say it was. My one girl , produced 2 still borns in first two litters, and on her last litter she had on pup with cleft foot, i believe is the after affects of being taken off the Diamond Food. So she is retired in a new home. My other girl before Diamond dog food, she produced large litters, after having her on it for a few months her litter went down to 4 , 5 and 6. Been off the food for 2 years now, so waiting to see how this next litter produce’s. I went back to the basic’s and home grown food. Kibble is a side dish (purina) for my kids.
I came across this site the other day. Explains alot.
I am still doing research, staying informed as much as possible

yep there you go. more proof
That is a good idea to look up phytoestrogens you should too and educate yourself
Yes, and it’s in alot of foods now. Causes overweight issue too especially if your dog is spayed or neutered. Read and recognize phytoestrogens in your dog food. Too much estrogen
Now that my clan has been off the phytoestrogens things have gone back to normal. I notice a big difference in this newest litter after phyto’s. No fighting amongst each other. Parents behavior is back to normal playful puppy like behavior.
Going back to Purina and making a veggie soup without phyto’s and adding that to their daily intake and a Multivitamin/Mineral is the best thing. I even make chicken noodle soup and or beef. I like to give them variety. I make up a big batch and make individual daily packs. Friderate them. About 8 to 10 days worth.
It’s been 9 months , it was a good 6 months before i noticed the complete change and proper weight loss. So those phyto’s take quite awhile to leave their system. I was free choicing.
Has anyone had a neutered dog who consumed these phytoestrogens, become aggressive? My male who is not neutered had become very aggressive toward the females. After he has been off of the phyoestrogens for about 6 or 7 mo. he has went back to normal and no agression.

I have been feeding Diamond Hi Energy for about 2 years. All of a sudden my female dobie had 2 small litters, 1 was 5 and 2nd was 4. prior to diamond she had large litters 11 and 12. I also noticed her heat cycle changed, like a month early or late. I started researching and i did find that it could be a low sperm or low estrogen count due to an E deficiency which i already was supplementing that along with a good vitamin supplement. So then my other female i pulled out of the pen so she would not breed her 1st heat. A few days later she started her heat, 3 wks later i put her back out in the pen. almost a month after she looked like she was coming into heat again, So started watching daily, a week later she has a pup. I am stumped at this point as she only had one. A singleton birth. I am still trying to figure out how she got pregnant, like a devine intervention. lol. So then i tried researching again, nothing that made sense. so i researched singleton births and then the phytoestrogens came up. I am so pissed at Diamond right now as their delivery guy was really pushing for breeders to use their food. Giving discounts. Which dont get me wrong Diamond is a good food. IF YOU’RE NOT BREEDING and free choicing. These phytoestrogens are screwing with the reproductive system. I free choice so my dogs were getting slammed with this crap. I wrote Diamond about it and never got a response. I lost well over $30,000 over this escapade of theirs. WHY ARE THEY PUTTING ESTROGEN IN OUR DOGS FOOD NOW.?? Well i think i can figure that out. They are trying to put breeders out of business, as they are pushing for you to adopt. We wouldnt have to adopt or cause shelters to fill up if people would keep their promise to give their animals a forever home.
Anyway the pea’s they are putting in the dog food are natural contraceptives.
In the instance of phytoestrogens, they mimic or interfere with estrogen produced in the body by binding to estrogen receptors. This could lead to delaying puberty and infertility.
check this link out.
I have returned back to the basic’s. Purina, never had any issue’s with purina products
