Purina Sued for Allegedly Killing 4,000 Dogs With ‘Toxic’ Food

Purina are facing a lawsuit which has linked their dog food to deaths in over 3,000 dogs. The recent heartbreaking case has forced many to re-evaluate just how important the ingredients in your dog food is.

You scrutinize the ingredients on the list of your children's food, so why not your pets? Our pets more often than not get treated like a real member of the family. Scarily dog food often contains sub-standard components such as wheat gluten meal, animal by-products, and corn by-products. 

Nestle’s Purina Beneful brand is one of the most popular dog food brands, and their reputation has recently come into contention. They are currently facing a class action lawsuit that claims their food caused serious health issues and even cases of death in over 3,000 dogs. The health problems that embroiled the company were when users of its product complained of internal health problems in their dogs.

The symptoms the dogs were developing included incontinence, internal bleeding, liver malfunction, and seizures, and the symptom shave been linked to two main ingredients. One is propylene glycol, which is a chemical used in antifreeze, but the FDA has said it is safe for animal and even human consumption. This ingredient is banned in Europe, but still in products in the U.S, and we think it is best avoided at all costs.

The second possible reason is mycotoxins from improperly stored grains poisoning the dogs. The high presence of liver failure cited in the lawsuit makes it likely that toxins are the root cause. 

Like many other brands, including brands that make food for humans, will meet the lowest possible standards for the product, and improper testing lets them get away with it. Some owners even reported finding maggots in the pets food, so it is little wonder that there is a good chance Purina Beneful has hidden mycotoxins.

It is heartbreaking when a pet gets sick, they are treated like one of the family in every other way, so why not start giving their food as much attention as you give your own? Start checking the ingredients listed on your dog's food, and don't buy if it includes animal by-products, excessive grains, sugar, and preservatives. 

You can go one step further and make your own dog food, and fairly easily. Combine raw, organic vegetables and organic, grass fed ground meat like beef in a food processor, with some added vegetables (although no onions) for a healthy organic meal for your dog that is good enough for you to eat (literally).
