She was raised on this dog food by her breeder (but the puppy version), who is a vet tech, so assumed that this was good food when we purchased her. By the second day of having her home I noticed, was kinda hard not to notice!, that she had horrible gas. I have never been around a dog who was like this.
So in addition to lots of gas, she had stomach aches and diarrhea. Her stomach would rumble so bad we could be 10 to 15 Ft away from her, a 4 Ib. Chihuahua, and hear her tummy making gurgling sounds. This continued off and on, cycling, every four days or so. My husband and I would have to give her Pepto for her really bad days. You can imagine how that went... Most of it all over her and only a tiny bit getting down. Not fun for any of us.
We ended up switching her to a different dog food ( Natural Balance Dry Dog Food, Grain Free Limited Ingredient Diet Fish and Sweet Potato Recipe ) thinking maybe she had a sensitivity to something in this brand. It took a little while for her to eat Natural Balance but now we have no stomach issues at all.
Not a Gassy Chihuahua anymore!
If your pet has a sensitive stomach or allergies, Skip this dog food and opt for something else! There are so many grains in this, which is an irritant for most sensitive tummies.
