Casualty of Pet Food?

Be VERY careful what you feed your animals! I received my "new baby" a rat terrier puppy on Thursday. I fed him a portion of a new can of dog food that was NOT on the recall list and he was dead by early Saturday morning. Animal owners, Please do some research on this. Sad in KS.

Please don't blame yourself for the death of your puppy. He may have had problems before you got him.....that were not related to the dog food "you" fed him! I was under the impression (but I could be wrong) that the kidney damage etc was a result of many days, weeks ? of feeding contaminated food. I truly don't think YOU harmed your puppy! He certainly was adorable and I'm sorry for your loss.

Oh nooooooooooo. What a sad way to start my morning. My hearts aches for you. Did you by any chance notify the maker of the pet food ? It is amazing that something like this has happened to so many of our little four legged animals.I hope there is much more control from now on. I'm also wishing there is a way that you are able to get the one offered to you above here.Let us all know. Hugs ~Holly

I want to Thank each one of you for your kind & caring words.

I just want everyone to be careful. It is so hard to know what to feed your pets. From all of the things I have read about the pet foods. Most Vets are recommending you cook "people" food for them. They say the tainted food is still on the shelves & alot of them haven't been recalled yet.

Thank you so much grbarnaba for the offer of a new puppy. I am supposed to be getting a new one in July. My husband is not convinced yet that its a good idea. (yet lol)

Thank you all again! What a blessing you all are!

Linda

My heart aches for you. Losing a pet truly is losing your closest, dearest friend. No matter what amount of time you had together.

I'm so sorry for your loss. When I was a child, we had a rat terrier named Pepper, looked a lot like yours, and she was a wonderful dog. I hope you find a new love when you and your husband are ready. And thank you for the heads up - I worry every day about what I feed my dog. I'll just keep cooking for her now.

I am also sorry about the loss of your pet. My year old American Pit Bull Terrier got sick ( bloody stools, vomiting ) in late Feb. Poison dog food warnings/recalls came out shortly after. Food I was giving her was on list, but not the same lot/upc numbers. Took her to the vet, $350.00 later (blood tests, organ scans etc.) showed nothing. Vet gave her antibiotics, ulcer-type med. , worm med. & prescrip. dog food. Bea seemed to get better & I fed her grocery store dog food after about 2 weeks. The symptoms all came back - lots of bleeding. The vet said she would need to go into hospital. I took her off all store bought dog food on my own, & she recovered. No more digestive problems. I will never go back to dog food. What a shame that so many people have to worry about this and some have lost furbabies because of it. My prayers to all who have. I still worry about my cats. They are picky & don't like a lot of "people" food.

Linda.. thanks so much for letting us know it was Pedigree. That's what I USED to use. I stopped using it as soon as the recalls started coming out. I didn't waste any time. I don't trust these companies at all. It's all about getting the almighty dollar.

Thanks again and I'm sorry for the loss of your cutie pie.
