Goodness, you'd think the saga with Halo dog food would have some answers by now since my dogs got sick after eating their food July 3rd but it's still going on.
I was told to send a sample of the dry food to a vet that they said was independent of them. I did that quite a while ago and have been waiting for the test results.
I got an email from them yesterday that was.....well, rude is about the only thing I can say about it. My vet was a little more vocal than that about it and had a few choice words to say.
Anyhow while waiting for this vet that "had no ties" to Halo dog food to test the food, I did a little research. Gee, she writes for them and gives a lot of advice on their pet website. Hm.......interesting.
Anyhow, since I got tired of waiting for them to test the food I sent them, I talked to my vets about it and they said they could send the food in for testing so that's what we did. I gave the food to them and they sent it to some lab.
Now Halo says that since the food wasn't sent to their vet that the food could have been contaminated. I'm not sure if they're accusing my vet of doing it or me. They weren't clear about that but they're having a cow over it.
Since I fed both wet and dry Halo, I should have sent the wet food cans in that I still have but just sent the dry. Now that Halo is screaming that there's absolutely no way a wet dog food could harm a dog (maybe they missed the dog food recalls on wet foods?) I guess I'll send in the wet food as well after getting the results of the dry food. I wonder what they'll accuse me or my vet of for doing that? Maybe injecting something into a can that's never been opened?
Wow, I'm stunned at their behavior and to think Ellen is a part of this company. I can't even watch her show and when I do see her on TV, I growl. One more rude email from this company and I may even bark at her
So the saga continues but hopefully soon at least we'll have the dry food results
