I came on the site looking for answers as to why my puppy has suddenly developed an aversion to her food. OMGoodness! It seems there are lots of dogs having the same reactions to this new Pedigree formula change. This is terrible for our animals. Shame on the company for not informing us of the change.

We adopted a sweet Great Dane, Athena, to help ease my kids’ pain some. We have had her two weeks and she is now experiencing the exact same issues. The only link? Pedigree large breed dry dog food. After reading all of these reviews and seeing other pet owners and their babies having the same symptoms I am beyond angry and upset that we had to put our sweet boy to rest because of this company's egregious practices. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT.

I had found in online research customers complaining of metal shards and dogs suffering from the same symptoms. It was then I switched him and our other two dogs to Blue Buffalo grain free after him having to go on a prescription IB dog food until his gut appeared better. I'm writing this heartbroken after having to have him put down two weeks ago, and fully blame Pedigree dog food. Initially after switching to grain free there was temporary cure of his symptoms. And ironically around the same time we had decided to switch dog foods, our Shih Tzu had just overcome HGB and almost lost his life. After four nights in the vet laying listlessly appearing I would never bring him home, he started to show improvement and turned the corner to recovery!
