What should I do if I feel my dog food is contaminated?

Paul Thrasher  |  May 1st 2010


I read that other dog foods are being investigated. My dog has all the signs: Sluggishness, loss of appetite, jaundice eyes, yellow gums and belly, vomiting, dark brown urine. She had an x-ray done of her stomach and her liver, spleen and kidney are enlarged. She also had bloodwork done and her enzyme levels for her liver and kidney were off the charts high. She is being treated by her vet & is showing some signs of improvement. I started her on a new dog food on Sat. Sept.4 (Purina Pro Plan Chicken Senior. Ten days later she stopped eating it and then showed all the above symptoms. I still have the dog food and would like to have it tested, but I’m not sure how. I called the FDA & they were no help, infact very rude. I strongly feel this food is contaminated. My vet says it’s a possibility and only told me to call the food company. What should I do? Thank you, Jill
