Pedigree Dog Food Recall Announced

  1. My old bull terrier came from the breeder on that shit. We got her off it after a 24 hour fast and just put her on a new food.

  2. pedigree is full of BIPRODUCTS anyway. Who wants to feed thier dog a food that is junk compared to a wholesome natural or premium NONBIPRODUCT food. these animals are our friends and family members try switching from pedigree altogether!

  3. I cook up some eggs and rice as a treat but feed my jack russell Nutro, its alot healthier than pedigree. Blue and Avacado brands are great ones too!

  4. I cook my dog my ouw food of chicken, rice or oats egss and either carrots or peas. I mix it with blue dry dog food. So tired of dog food recalls. Lets get real and take a stand.

  5. I feed my dogs unprocessed food 100% pure protein I feed them raw and my dogs have never looked better its cheaper then kibble as well. Why not feed your dog what it was suppose to eat what its teeth was designed to eat?

  6. canned food is not good .. especially for smaller dogs with sensitive stomachs … Our little Maltese enjoys his Royal Canin Gastrointestinal … costs a lot but who cares … dogs come before us 🙂

    1. Actually, canned food IS good, if the RIGHT food is given. ESPECIALLY for the smaller breed dogs prone to urinary problems. I happen to do a mixture of dry and soft because shih tzu’s are prone to urinary problems and stones. (Add’s more water to the diet)

      1. Canned dog food is a carcinogenic- will never feed ANY of my pets canned food, having owned all breeds over the years, found home made is the best food for any dog.

  7. Would never feed my dog that crap. Full of a bunch of nastiness…like by products of dead animal carcasses. I feed my babies EVO…and I can pronounce every ingredient on the label. That kinda cheap food will make even the tiniest dog poop land mines! The dogs are probably choking on it cuz it tastes like crap!

  8. So glad I got smart about dog food….I don’t ever feed them crap food like Pedigree. Cook allot for them… they are going on 15 years.

  9. No one who loves their dog should be feeding them this crap anyway. Do a little research before you say you love your dog!

  10. Love reading the posts from pious assholes who call this food “shit”. Just for the record, there are some out there who can’t afford the gourmet dog food du jour & you are making yourself look like a jerk when you insult them.

  11. our dogs doesnt like pedigree taste so we feed them cesar brand, thats the one they love to eat daily 🙂

  12. …at least they’re being responsible and doing a recall…I found a ‘chunk’ of metal and ‘plastic bits’ in a couple cans of another brand (begins with ‘E’) and after notifying the company about this they simply said I was welcome to “exchange” the cans!…have never trusted, or bought, this product since!

  13. Shonda… I think we just want what’s best for our dogs and Pedigree and other “cheap” brands are not good for animals at all. So like myself… I will travel about 15-20 just to by the BEST food for them. We have a Petclub about 1 1/2 miles away… only thing I buy there is the cat liter. And I also cook for them.

  14. And yet more pious buttheads feel the need to chime in and try to make others feel bad about their choices.

  15. My dogs eat raw, but I would NEVER tell someone they don’t love their pet because of what brand of food they feed it. It’s judgemental and ridiculous. Not to mention it makes EVERY animal advocate look bad.

  16. Dogs in shelters are surviving because of Pedigree type dog foods…it may not be for you and your pup but I think we should ease up a bit…I would rather someone feed there dog pedigree or cheaper dog food then see more post of dogs starved to death…seriously!

  17. Thank-you for posting. My huskies ate 1/2 case of this stuff. Way too many recalls. Back to homeade dog chow for my pups. They have lost a customer…..

  18. Que mancada essa com a ração(até bem cara) dos cachorros.Até isso pra complicar a vida da genet e dos animais.Realmente a ração NUTRO é a melhor que existe faz anos mas aqui no Brasil é absurdamente cara,impossivel um salario de pessoas normais poder comprar,so se for para cão de politicos!!!

  19. Crappy food anyway. Our pooches deserve better, so do the shelter dogs that have to eat that stuff.

  20. How are these guys still in business? There are scares & negative comments about the low level of actualt meat content & high levels of mulch almost every year!

  21. Pedigree does great work for shelter dogs. At least they did a recall. Other companies have not when there have been issues. We all love our animals and do the best we can to take care of them.

  22. I also feed my dogs raw. They love it and go after it like they never did processed dog food. They get water from their raw food so don’t drink as much water. Their coats look much better and the vet said on last check up they had the best teeth he’d seen on 3 and 4 yr olds! Dogs are carnivores, feed them what they need!

    1. Despite their descent from wolves and classification as Carnivora, dogs are variously described in scholarly and other writings as carnivores[139][140] or omnivores.[3][141][142][143] Unlike obligate carnivores, such as the cat family with its shorter small intestine, dogs can adapt to a wide-ranging diet, and are not dependent on meat-specific protein nor a very high level of protein in order to fulfill their basic dietary requirements. Dogs will healthily digest a variety of foods, including vegetables and grains, and can consume a large proportion of these in their diet.[3]

  23. We feed only Life’s Healthy Pet Food (Life’s Abundance). Excellent and extremely healthy. Love that it arrives on my doorstep. They make it in small batches so it is a lot fresher than commercially made food.

  24. We feed our dogs Natures select bit is made in Texas and all ingredient are from USA. Our dogs have great coats and skin. It is also delivered by a local distributor who gets to know you and your pets. I am disabled and the man brings the food and puts it directly in our bin. I can’t carry a 50 lb bag. It’s not expensive and the ingredients are the same as the “premium” foods.

  25. Our new addition, a Welsh Terrorist puppy, eats only the best but would that stuff too as well as the plastic and the can!

  26. a few years back i was making a pick-up at a pedigree/mars facility in vernon ca. and the equipment i was picking up was in a small office on the second floor overlooking the mixing machines. and the smell coming out of those mixing machines reeked. I was gagging the whole time I was there. I had to wear a mask . honestly it smell like dead animals.
