Puppy lost appetite, extreme water intake and loose stools - possible food contamination with recent batches
on March 12, 2014
My puppy has to be hand fed the Hill's Science small bites food because she won't go anywhere near it. And she NEVER used to refuse food. She is not gaining any weight and seems to have lost some weight, is lethargic, is drinking water excessively throughout the day and has diarrhea almost every day now.
I'm not sure if the manufacturer has switched something in its production process because the last bag I bought seems to be different from the previous bag. Now, my 3 month old puppy refuses the food. Sometimes her bowl just sits untouched for hours until I have to hand feed her.
I did not associate her reaction to the new bag of Hill's Science since she was fine when we fed her the last bag. But since I started feeding her the new bag, she is eating less and less each day and is becoming much too skinny and lethargic.
So I checked consumer reports and found MANY pet owners who had the same response from their pets to Hill's Science diet- loss of appetite, weight loss, diarrhea and in some cases extreme vomiting and even internal gastro damage and death in some cases!
I'm taking my puppy to the vet immediately and returning to Amazon the unused bag I still have.
