Science Diet Pet Food....It seems that pets are getting sick from eating this food.I

Surf of Pearcy AR (06/13/08)
I am very unsettled by the Science Diet dry dog food. I have worked in the veterinary field for 5 years now, when my shepherd was a puppy naturally I started her on the best food I could buy and considering where I worked I thought I was doing the right thing. I noticed she produced frequent stools through out the day (even more than usual for a pup) So I switched her to Purina Puppy food and she did much better. I continued to feed that with no problem for about 15 months or longer when I got another shepherd (who was an adult) that had poor body condition and coat. I figured once again to do the right thing and change to a so called better quality of food. I started feeding all the dogs Science Diet Adult dry dog food. Occationally I would find soft stool, but hey that happens right?

Well I am now convinced that this food needs to be thrown away. I came home from work to find Vomited up food and diarrhea in my one shepherds kennel and diarrhea in my other dogs kennel. To make a long story short the vomiting and diarrhea became worse and worse over a weeks time. It finally dawned on me when my female proceeded to vomit about a gallon of brownish, orange liquid, the same color of the food...upon closer inspection it was undigested food chunks mixed with saliva and stomach bile. Then I looked and my male had gone in his kennel again (something he does not do!) and it basically looked like brownish, orange mushed up food. I had never seen stool that looked exactly like mushy food before.

There was no reason for food to be in my females belly at all considering 9-10 hours had passed since she last ate SCIENCE DIET ADULT DRY DOG FOOD! I have come to the conclusion that they are not properly digesting it and it is making them SICK! I too am SICK of thought that I was feeding them this and causing them to feel bad and I am SICK of cleaning my carpets too! Needless to say a half a bag went straight into the trash...I wouldn't even feed this to a starving stray dog! I did however save some of the dog food to get it tested for contaminations..SOMETHING IS SERIOUSLY WRONG!

I am now in the process of contacting the company, having the food tested for contamination, and having to start all my babies on meds. We will see if the company makes good on this big, yucky, messy, ordeal?

This doesn't surprise me at all. It's all of those grains including corn... Dogs are carnivores - WOOF!
