    Default Warning Nutro dog food issues

    I'm currently sitting in the vets office with my bulldog waiting on an IV. He has lost 5 lbs and can't keep down any food or water. I just purchased a new bag of grain free Nutro Natural Choice last week. My vet went to the a consumer affairs web site and there have been several complaints from dog owners that purchased this product in June. A couple of people mentioned that they called the company and their customer service reps stated that the formula has just changed (I have not verified that). My bully has been on this brand for three yrs with no problems. Since there are limited choices in grain free dog foods, I thought there could be a chance other bully owners may be using this product.

    I have Hank on Nutro Ultra for puppies and have not had a problem. When i took Hank to the vet the first time and told her that is what we were giving her, she said that way good. I gave my 13 year old Weimaraner Nutro his whole life with no problems.

    Please advise if this is incorrect. I only want Hank to have the best.

    You're in my prayers.

    Sending positive thoughts that Rufus will be okay! How scary! Sometimes you just don't know and some batches of kibble can be bad. We went through something similar when Frank was a puppy - we had him on Blue Wilderness puppy and he was drinking and peeing constantly and wasn't eating well. We took him to the vet and she was horrified that we were feeding him that and told us there had been a quiet recall of certain batches. She tested his kidney levels and he ended up being fine but it scared us. However, some people have fed their bullies the same kind with no problems. Most bullies are also very sensitive to various kibble types and sometimes it takes a while to find the right one.

    Keep us posted on how Rufus is doing - you are both in my thoughts.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    Poor guy. I hope he recovers quickly. Thank you for the warning. That's the same brand I've got Lexi on. Time to switch to Fromm.
