We have had many pet owners inquire as to whether or not various batches of Blue Buffalo are still tainted with LEAD due to the ongoing Class Action Law Suit.
Truthfully Blue Buffalo and Blue Wilderness Pet Foods have been plaqued with an 8 Year Pet Food Recall; -the biggest Pet Food Recall in the history of pet food. It affected over 100,000 dogs and cats from coast to coast.
That recall settled last February only to be followed by the batches of Blue Buffalo and Blue Wilderness tainted with toxic LEAD levels. In every case the company denied all allegations while helpless dogs and cats suffered with diseases ranging from vomiting and diarrhea to cancer. It seems clear that quality control, good health and wellness have obviously not been experienced by many pets being fed these foods.
In this veterinarians experience, if you feed you pet a food and/or give certain pet supplements and wonder if they are benefiting your pets health just take a good look at those 4 feet right in front of you.
Ask yourself these questions:
Is your pets skin and hair coat shiny, glistening and free of flakes and dander. Are your pet’s eyes bright?
Is your dog or cat filled with vim and vigor? Does your pet move freely and enjoy playtime.
Does your cherished companion urinate and defecate regularly.
Is your pet’s stool formed and homogeneous inconsistency?
Is the stool volume minimal in relation to the amount of food you feed at each meal? It should be!
If you answer yes to the above questions its likely the food and/or supplements are doing their job.
If you didn’t answer yes, then talking with your veterinarian to consider making some changes probably makes sense.
Our pet patients have enjoyed wonderful results with homemade diets as well as a variety of commercially available pet foods. In our veterinary clinic, we offer From’s Four Star Dry Food, Sojo’s Freeze Dried Raw and Stella and Chewy’s Raw frozen and freeze-dried.
We have no relationship to any of the above pet food companies and there are many, many more good pet foods available.
Be sure to talk to your vet to help decide whats best for your pet.
