Note that all the products in this line have Politically Correct, Gaia-Loving, New Age-y kind of names.

Wouldn’t feed it to a DOG.

We had to take our dog to the emergency vet this weekend with these symptoms. I didn’t see her brand of food on the list.

What are cats? Chopped liver?

This is for all these brands of PET food.

Used to buy Evo for my cat a few years ago, but make him puke. Maybe I got a bad batch?

Thanks for the info, LSAggie. For any freeper that uses NUTROMAX... that is okay and not involved. I just confirmed with the company about it.

I started feeding raw meaty bones well over 18 years ago, and have never looked back. Finally found the right way to feed so I could have healthy dogs, with no illnesses, cruddy teeth (except maybe the canines, if you feed table treats), fleas, stinky breath, yeasts, ticks, or other common health problems.

Stop feeding your dogs processed food. Do some research, for Dog’s sake! Check out Tom Lonsdale on the web.

http://www.rawmeatybones.com/diet/ExpDiet.html

Raw fed dogs do not get sick from raw, and there is a reason, but if you don’t do your homework, you won’t ever understand why processed fed food dogs do die from it.

It is the crap (like clay, beet pulp, etc) they put in kibble to slow it down through their intestines, which then keep the salmonella multiplying till it overwhelms them. They are trying to keep the dog’s poop reasonably normal looking and acceptable to us.

But it isn’t, really, if you think about it. It stinks, just sits there & doesn’t degrade, while a raw food diet poop crumbles away without much smell, into a crumbly white powder after a few days in the sun.

The crap they put in the kibble keeps you from seeing the goopy diarrhea that would normally occur from feeding them left-over grain junk that dogs cannot digest.

The manufacturers know you won’t tolerate constant diarrhea from grains dogs do not have the enzymes to digest, so they add stuff into the kibble to slow down whatever concoction they have made from the leftovers after harvesting, in the dog’s intestines, giving the salmonella a lot of time to multiply and destroy.

A healthy dog, fed a species appropriate diet has no problem with salmonella, or other stuff he might find in wild kill, road kill, or decayed carcasses in the woods.

Their digestive tracts are totally different than ours, and are equipped with powerful acids and enzymes that can deal with stuff our lengthy convoluted intestinal systems can’t. Theirs are way much shorter, and totally different than ours. A raw fed dog has much smaller, less sticky & stinky poops, that easily degrade without endless scooping.

Any dog, no matter how little or big, is happier, healthier, and less expensive, vet-wise, if he or she is fed a raw meaty diet.

http://www.rawmeatybones.com/diet/ExpDiet.html

Please know that I am now pushing 70 years of age, am not interested in arguments, and really do not give a flying fig what you choose to feed your pets. You either pay good money for a species-appropriate diet, or you pay up the wazoo to the vets.

Your choice, and do not bother me with crank comments. I won’t respond. I am too old and cranky to argue with people who don’t care to research factual truth, but want to argue with me with uninformed opinions.

I was using Evo cat food, but will switch for at least a while. The cats currently seem to prefer Simply Nourish dry food, anyway. I'm happy to oblige them.

Sorry to see this happen yet again!

Thanks for the headsup!

I usually stock up way ahead of time before a new bag needs to be opened, allowing time for recalls to be announced before my critters start eating it.

Doesn’t do anything to help the poor beasties who guinea-pigged the bad stuff, but at least mine get spared.
