    I make a lovely warm gravy out of Wellness Duck/Sweet Potato canned food + hot water that I stir into their kibble.
    The cats even love that stuff so I give them a little snort too.

    That's great to know, yes i really don't want to change it again so soon, and i'm still mixing it with his old food anyways, he seems to really like it, how much canned pumpkin do i give him? and just in one meal? or each one! i guess it's ok for him to eat it at his age? he's 11 weeks old today

    The products involved in this voluntary recall are:
    Wellness Complete Health® Super5Mix® Large Breed Puppy, 15 lb. and 30 lb. bags and 5 oz. sample bags with best by dates of JAN 9 2013 through JAN 11 2013.







    The majority of Wellness natural products for pets are produced in WellPet’s own modern state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Mishawaka, Indiana. WellPet no longer purchases any products from Diamond Pet Foods.


    Well that is good info to know!!!!

Not worth the risk to my babies cuz eventually it will be recalled again.
    Are you saying all of the Wellness products are in the recall ??? I'll have to read up on exactly what the recall is about and which exact products are included.

The smell of the food in wonderful as is the lack of waste when you get to the bottom of the bag - no kibble crumbs at all. So glad I made the switch to this food.
    Where are you ordering the Earthborn from? i'm interested in giving this one a try for my guys.

    Did you do a slow switch? If not, baby will get the runs and will take a while to settle the tummy... I would cut back on the amount you are feeding and see if that helps first.... and add a tsp of canned pumpkin (not pie filling). Let us know....

    I have heard of soft stools on wellness puppy... Is that the one you switched to?
