I'm adding this note to my post about Halo Dog food. The dogs did well on it for the first few bags then when I got a new bag, 2 of them became ill, one needing to be in the doggie hospital for a couple of days. Two different vets looked at the tests they did on my dog and said the problem was the new Halo bag of food. Halo has been a nightmare to deal with about it and I got an email from someone who knew the food got my dogs sick saying they called Halo about it and Halo gave my information to that person!! When I called Halo, her boss told me she was sorry, they messed up by doing that. Gee, I kind of think they did too! They are dragging their feet in every way possible in dealing with this........and Ellen owns the company and says it's all about doing good for dogs. I guess we can say anything, it's our actions that count.
Darn, I was just looking at a folder that talked about dog food and stones and don't have a clue how to find the folder again so I'm posting here.
I just changed to a new dog food called Halo, Spot's Stew. My spoo is dealing with allergies....the vet says many dogs here are right now and that it's the time of the season for it. I decided to change their food but didn't really see anything that caught my eye or their taste buds until I saw this food at Petco a couple days ago. I wanted a holistic food and this seems to fit the bill. Has anyone tried it?
