Dogswell - Dangerous Dog Food?

by Kathy
(Charlottesville, VA)


My beautiful dog died on Dec. 21st. She was perfectly healthy when I started her on a new dog food....all natural, called Dogswell Healthy Hips, Chicken and Oats.

She got ill 4 days with flu like symptoms, saw a vet and she died the next morning after experiencing terrible pain and breathing problems.

The vet also thought it was the dog food, but can't find it on a recall list. The company is evasive and our local supermarket pulled it off the shelf, which leads me to believe something is going on.

They say it is not on recall. Hear anything about this food co. ???

dog food analysis

Thank you for you sympathy, Deana. I have been in contact with the Dogswell dog food company and they offered to have the food tested at a 3rd party lab in Tenn. They sent a UPS label. I sent it off this week so I am waiting for the results.

I had given her the biscuits by this company also but threw the bag away when she died...wish I had kept it for testing purposes.

I certainly will tell you all if it is contaminated.

Very sorry...

Very sorry to hear about what happened to your dog. Perhaps your vet could have the food analyzed? I'm sorry for your loss.
