Blue Buffalo canned concern discovered
I usually put a small topping of Blue buffalo canned food on my dogs kibble. We have a Shih Tzu that doesn't like it cold so I usually nuke it for a few seconds. About a month ago, when I was warming it up, it was sparking like it contained metal. Tonight it did the small thing. This is quite concerning to me. Might not be anything, but I thought I would let everyone else know. I plan on emailing them to ask about it. I still have some of this can remaining, so I will try to see if I can get a quick video if it occurs again.

I also give my 9 month old GSD a small topping.

This is a dumb question but did you put the can in the microwave when warming up?

Run a magnet through the food. It is likely the same thing that happens when you microwave frozen vegetable. Take a look at the link below.

I'll bet it's minuscule shavings from the grinders.

I didn't put the can in the microwave. Haha. I didn't know that about the vegetables. It's only happened a couple times. Probably nothing, but figured I would post to see what everyone thought.

This happened to me too, with some canned tripe. It freaked me out! I thought my can opener was leaving shards behind and I was extra careful about opening the cans afterwards. Weird.

You're brave. I'd leave the house for that and I love all crazy smells. I smell my dog a few times a day as I would a perfume. I love smell of rotten eggs.

But I can't picture the smell of microwaved tripe.
