4 Serious Food Recalls

  • Against the Grain Pet Food is voluntarily recalling some of their dog food due to potential pentobarbital contamination. For any questions, customers may contact the company at 1-800-288-6796
  • Blue Buffalo has voluntarily recalled select canned dog food due to possible aluminum contamination.  Consumers can call 866-800-2917 for more information.
  • PetSmart has issued a voluntary recall of Grreat Choice Adult Dog Food as a precautionary action due to metal contamination. If you have any questions, please contact PetSmart Customer Service at 1-888-839-9638
  • Wellness Pet Food has issued a voluntary recall of various canned cat food products. The company’s quality department learned about a foreign material in non-WellPet products made in the same manufacturing facility and decided to recall the cat food products as a “conservative step.” Consumers can call 1-877-227-9587 for more information.

Any food recall should be regarded as serious, however, when we see 3 different companies with the same issue, at the same time, it raises questions about quality control, manufacturing habits and cleanliness between batches from different companies. Even scarier is to see a potential contamination with pentobarbital, a powerful drug that could cause severe symptoms and even death, depending on dosage ingested.

Issues like the ones experienced in these recalls remind us to tell you, Pet Parents, why we only recommend Hill’s Pet food.

We can tell you that all of our doctors personally inspected their manufacturing plant, we can spend hours showing you all the research that goes into each bag, or we can go in depth with a nutrition class; but the bottom line is: This is what we trust for our own fur babies!!

Studies shows that an adequate diet can add 2 to 5 years to your pet’s life. Are you concerned with the quality of your pets’ food?  Let’s customize a nutritional plan for each one of your pet. Give us a call.
