Itchmo Forums Members Collecting Your Pet Food Experiences

Wall of Dog and Cat Food

ItchmoForums members JustMe and dingbat have started a board to gather your experiences on every brand of dog food imaginable. It’s an amazingly well organized effort to combine reviews and personal experiences on a vast variety of food products for cats and dogs.

The boards are organized in to two groups: one for all cat foods and one for all dog foods. Each category is organized by brand and they are doing a great job of moderating the threads with the help of dozens of contributors. We hope that this information will be an early warning system for cat and dog foods and help pet owners select the right food for their family. Kudos to dingbat and JustMe!

So tell us about your experiences today!

    This is what I have been waiting for. I hope Lorie will go on the forums because she had the same problem I did. Thank you JustMe and dingbat.

    Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.

    My experience has directed me away from Petsmart and Petco where I used to shop.
    Too many recalls, too much confusion, too much hype with not enough nutrional ingredients in the food. Also did not want so many poisons for my darling two cats.

    I was running away from brand after brand shopping at these stores, plus running away from Walmart and Kroeger.

    Got smart and went to a store I can trust not to have recall brands. Mostly give the cats California Natural wet and dry. Also give them Filadae wet and dry. A lot of human turkey and chunk light tuna (albacore is said to have too much mercury possibility).

    Cats went from being poisoned, mostly by Nutro, to being healthy and feisty even at 14 yrs old.

    Wonderful Idea!!!!

  4. Sandy says:

    Great idea and they are doing a great job. I wish more of the posters that have complaints and are posting in other threads would post in there because we have many foods with chunks on ? and blue lines like fishing line. But they are not posting just the facts in these areas

    You rock, Justme and Dingbat!

    These new forums distill a lot of the discussion that has taken place, and hopefully will bring in additional points of view.

    Ben, thanks for headlining this on the main page.

    NB Eatables recall for botulism. Just got this in from that Club NB email thingy they started a few months ago.

    ============

    Natural Balance was informed at 2:45 pm by our USDA manufacturer, Castleberry Foods, in Augusta, GA, that they are doing a voluntary recall on all 15 oz edible foods for humans as well as our Natural Balance Eatables for Dogs (Irish Stew, Hobo Chili, Chinese Take-Out and Southern Style Dumplin’s with Gravy).

    This voluntary recall is from one reported case of botulism in Castleberry’s human edible Hot Dog Chili Sauce. Botulism is generally due to an improperly sealed can or a can that has become damaged, thus letting air inside.

    Natural Balance checks all of its cans for any kind of leakage, puffiness or damage before they are shipped, and we have found none. However, to comply with our manufacturer, we are asking that you discontinue use and return Eatables for Dogs to your store for a full refund. We will give you more information as we get it.

    they were NOT recalled for botulism! Another product unrelated was. Be careful what you say. Thats how rumors start.

  8. Sandy says:

    I think the forum is going down I can’t get to page 2 or 3 of the petfood area :/

  9. Ditey1 says:

    Whew! Must be, as I can’t get to page 2 or 3 either. Thought that something was wrong with my computer.

  10. Lorie says:

    I posted my experience spring 2006 with IAMS dry, will post my FF experience Mrs. P is referring to as soon as page 2 and 3 are working.

    Mrs. P

    Hope you saw my earlier posts so sorry abut LadyCat. Hopefully someday soon one of my 20 cans of poison will prove Purina has been lying all along.

  11. Mrs. P. says:

    Lorie,
    I finally got some of the free samples from the mother of my husband’s boss. Now if we can figure out how to get them tested. JustMe has some samples of FF, too. Somehow we can get this done!

  12. Captn' Carl says:

    I can’t thank you enough. Two thumbs up. You are bringing a clarity to this issue that has been sorely needed. Keep up the excellent work. You are a most valuable ally.

  13. Katie says:
