My mix puppy has been sick for the past week or so and had lost all interest in her food. She'd nimble here or there, but she was much more interested in our table scraps or the cat's food. She'd also had diarrhea, and we really weren't sure if it was worms (she has been dewormed once by the vet) or something else. Last night she got really sick, not throwing up, but she did have a couple of accidents in the house, which she has only done once since we've gotten her, and it was green diarrhea. She was also really tired, and the only time she'd wake up is when she'd have to go outside.
I freaked out, of course, and was certain she'd caught parvo or something from one of her socialization trips to Lowes. Then I calmed down and decided to look at her food. Apparently, Beneful is bad and tends to cause problems like that.
Spent most of the night researching new food and monitoring her. (Just in case it was parvo.
) We decided to get 4health, mostly because Blue Buffalo Wilderness is a little to far out of our price range.
She wouldn't eat the Beneful all day, so finally we broke down and rushed went to Tractor Supply and got a bag of 4health and a couple of cans of the wet food. We fixed her some dinner when we ate, and she actually ate! AND she wasn't at our feet begging for food! She didn't ate as much as she did on Beneful, though.
Anyway, I'm wondering how your dog (or dogs) do on 4health. Should we shovel out the extra $10-20 to buy wilderness or another food? Any suggestions about what that food should be (if we should switch)? Are those recalls from last year something we should be worried about? Thanks.
