Additionally, PetMD reported that Wellness is recalling one of their dog food products as well. The pet food manufacturer recently recalled all 12-lb bags of Small Breed Adult Health Dry Dog Food with the best buy date of August 18th, 2013. The company is concerned about the high moisture level found in some bags, which can lead to mold growing on the food before its expiration date.

i'd rather give my puppy (8 yr old) natural food with a dash of cottage cheese, vitamins mixed in, it took him a while to eat the dry food but i tend to entice kobie with perhaps a slice of turkey or some salmon, he loves it and he is a healthy, spry "youngster", he has been certified to be a therapy dog and we have made it our mission to make others smile! God bless all those beautiful pets that suffered because of a manufacturer's greed and lack of humane interest!

There's a reason I don't buy "name brand" animal products any more...Between salmonella and the other myriad problems that name brands have produced in the past, I switched to an all natural, meat and vegetable based dog food. My dogs are happier, healthier, and more energetic, and THEIR FOOD DOESN'T MAKE THEM ILL!!!
