I have had one of my dogs larger breed on Pure Balance for some time now. I Originally had her on another brand all together and found out there was a HUGE recall on that dog food. I had noticed her loosing weight, having bm issues, excessive hair loss. She has a very sensitive tummy so any change in her food causes her to have explosive bm. I changed her diet to Pure Balance after finding out about the recall on her old food. This was well over a year ago. I also put my smaller guy on the same food just so they all on same diet. This was now several months ago.
Up to speed
About a bit over a month ago after switching my little guy over to pure balance. I noticed that my bigger dog (female) started having looser bm also more frequent, she has been drinking water as if she will NEVER get another sip again, she does urinate bit more than she use to now. My little guy has never been one to drink to me enough water and now he also has been drinking it a lot more often than his norm, his BM has also changed, he also has waaaaayyyyyy to over active bladder both in urine and bms. Before when I first put my female bigger breed on Pure balance it had helped put a healthy weight on her, gave her healthier coat, made her an overall healthier dog. But as of like I said bit over a month ago now EVERYTHING has changed.
I do not know if they changed the ingredients? I did notice that the size of the nibs were now smaller and more flat than before (round and bigger).
Now I am upset that have to find YET another dog food to put my dogs on. I do NOT like changing their diets at all when they are doing well. But I am now going to have to because I can not imagine the thought of these two being unhealthy, hurt, ill, possibly fatal, due to what I am feeding them. Not sure what had happened to Pure Balance. But wish that they would not have changed whatever it was and or fix it. =-(
My Dogs both loved this food so did I till I started seeing them both showing signs of sickness. Nothing else has changed and both are healthy dogs. Hope that this is resolved.
The Pure Balance product line includes three dry dog foods.
I’m so glad that I read these comments! My dogs bm’s are changing as well. My girl is constipated and her appetite is way different. She will eat other food, without her normal enthusiasm mind you, but when I put out the Pure Balance, she refuses. My boy is VERY food driven and he is starting to turn away from it too… Maybe third time will be the charm on finding them a dog food that is healthy and will KEEP them healthy… -_-
Pure Balance dog food is made in Arizona.
