Is Your Dog Getting Sick From Eating NUTRO- Pet Food

As the title said, is your dog getting sick from eating NUTRO- pet food?

There has been a lot of reports by dogs & cats owners that their pets have been getting sick in the past few months. Some owners talked about their pet losing weight and some talked about digestive problems from eating the pet food.

NUTRO has even defended their product and asked those owner’s to contact their company with any complaints. @ 800-833-5330 or visit their site .

Dr. Robert Backus, an assistant teaching professor and director of the Nestle-Purina Endowed Small Animal Nutrition Program at the University of Missouri's College of Veterinary Medicine said: Food can cause GI upset if sudden changes are made in the type of food you're feeding.

As far as pet food manufacturing goes, I'm not an authority. There are many ingredients that go into these products and there could be problems with an ingredient source. There also could be problems with the formulation. And there are occasional processing problems -- maybe the food was over-processed or under processed -- which could affect GI health and pets could end up with diarrhea.

I don’t know but there seems to be a lot of dogs getting sick so just in case, you might what to keep an eye out and watch your dog’s behavior.
