Cheap store brands are on the list. Walmart's Ol' Roy and Aldi's Shep Dog Food to name a couple of them.Originally Posted by misskitty;2296756;
I bought one pouch of Nutro Lamb Stew (on the list) as a "treat" and was putting a teaspoon of it on my dog's meals for about a week. One lousy pouch ! I feel so bad. If anything happened to her because of that I would be on my way to Menu Foods to force feed them some cuts and gravy !
I'm playing it safe right now and avoiding all canned food and supplementing the dry food with "people" food ... chicken, lean ground beef, rice, orzo and veggies. She had a little hamburger birthday "cake" today.
She goes to the vet on Wednesday for annual heartworm test and check-up and they said they can do a urine and blood test to check kidney function. I'm just playing it safe as even though symptoms usually appear "soon" after eating the tainted food, once there are symptoms, it's more advanced.
I know I'm a little nuts about this, but I just love her to pieces -- and know I don't have to apologize here.
