Sick dog -- David, 05:16:51 03/03/20 Tue [9]

We adopted a 3 year old Boston terrier in Sept. of 2011. Soon after we got him we started feeding Natural Choice dry dog food. In the past six weeks he started throwing up. I Googled Natural Choice and recall and found this message board. After reading here I realized he had some other symptoms that other pets were having. Bed wetting, shaking, excessive gas, drinking more water than normal. Needless to say we are changing to a different brand of food and the remaining Natural Choice is going in the trash. I heard that Nutro had changed their formula this year. Our dogs symptoms seemed to have worsened staring around October of 2012.

I took my 2 dachshunds to the vet and she recommended I look up comments made on Nutra dry dog food. My husband brought home a bag 2 weeks ago and since then both dogs have been vomited yellow frothy stuff once or twice a day. The vet and I are under the assumption it may be an allergic reaction to this food since it was their only change. Since reading these posts I am not going to put them back on this food. I am concerned but I wonder what ingredient it could be that makes dogs sick.

With so many 'junk' parts being used in the food now, there is no telling which one is making them throw up bile. We hope your pet thrives on a new food.

My dog had been eating Natural Choice Large Breed than Senior Large Breed Chicken Formula. My dog loved it, and the vet always commented on what great shape he was in. I always bought the large bag which I kept in large sealed plastic containers as it lasted him approximately six months. He went in for a complete vet exam on Oct. 23, 2013, just turning 8 years old, his vet was impressed and commented once again on his excellent health. I bought a new bag of food on Oct. 27, 2013. Within two days he was throwing up everything he ate, every time he ate. I found these complaints, back to Petco it went, they are great that way, and I choice a different brand, of course he's not happy, but the vomiting ended when I took the food away.

Similar story. New packaging and new formula and dogs were throwing up bile. Threw it all away thanks to reading these comments. Starting TOTW later this week after a rice and chicken diet for a few days to settle their poor tummies. And to think I let this go for 5-6 months!!! So much for Nutro and their sensitive stomach chicken rice oatmeal blend.

Our morkie got very sick,vomiting several times per day until we realized it was the natural choice dod food. We had switched from Iams. Went back on Iams, no problems. I googled and found others have had same problem.

In mid-Feb 2014 we were feeding our 4-1/2 mo old Boston Terrier Nutro Ultra puppy food and she loved it. We had been buying the 4.5 lb bags but decided to get a big (15 lb) bag since it was going so well. That night I fed her from that bag. 4 hrs later she vomited bile and started having gassy, stinky, watery diarrhea which has been going on every day since with no relief. I emailed Nutro to ask if they had changed the recipe or if larger bags were produced on a different production line from the small bags. Of course---NO response. She had all her shots and wormings as supposed to. The vet put her on Metrodizanole which has not helped. All she has to eat now is rice & chicken/or ground beef. ONE small meal from a new bag of food---and our lives changed--literally overnight.

I have two big dogs. I was feeding them something very expensive and was told to try Nutro..cheaper and still had the benefits Almost immediately they each started throwing up on average of three times. Our vet thought it was out town water. Even got them checked for diabetes because they drank water in huge amounts. It was crazy. They were throwing up bile all in excess. After about five months or more I went to a different store and I don't think they had the nutro. Bought a 4health food. They have never once got sick since the first day I gave them this food. So now two months later I can definitely say that the Nutro was what was really making them sick and after googling it I can see it's not just my dogs.

We lost our dog due to Nutro. -- Llisa Maxwell, 17:57:40 10/26/16 Wed [1]

We lost our Tonka dog two weeks ago. He was a healthy active beautiful 9 yr old lab/Newfoundland. We began feeding him Nutro a few months ago. I have no doubt this food killed my dog. I thought we were alone until I found this site. I don't know what others experienced but ours dogs lost hair, vomiting, diharea, and trouble breathing. Lost control of their urine and lost strength. Completely refused to eat. Our other dog Emmitt is a Cocker he was very ill. I am nursing him now every day. Changed his food. He still is shaking and is almost bald but I think he is showing improvement.
Can anyone help me? This is the first I have heard of this food hurting other dogs as well.
