I have three dogs and they have been sick since early July. I was certain the problem was not related to their food. They had Beneful in the past, but only a bag or so every now and then. But starting in July, all I have fed them is Beneful.
For the last several months, all three of my dogs have had severe diarrhea and vomiting. They had been on antibiotics several times and during this time, I would feed them chicken and rice. Once they appeared to be getting better, I would start incorporating Beneful in with the chicken and rice. They seemed to be fine until the antibiotics ran out and within a few days, it would start again. We tested them for giardia, treated them for whip worms, had fecal samples tested several times over the last few months.
One of my dogs ended up staying at the vet’s office over night hooked up to an i.v. because she was so dehydrated from vomiting. We have spent around $600.00 in vet bills.
Last week, my daughter called me from my parents house and said to not feed our dogs any food coming from China cuz 600 dogs and at least 10 cats have died from the food and treats coming out of China. I had no idea Beneful was made there until last week. I immediately switched to Purina One Lamb and Rice and guess what? My dogs are almost back to normal in just three days.
I was so happy to find out what was causing my dogs to be sick. I was very worried about them and not sure how much longer we could keep going through this.
Look on the dog food label or bag and the treats for where the food is produced, not where it is distributed. It may be distributed here but it is often made elsewhere. you might have to look it up on line to find out where it is produced.
Beneful Dog Food Reviews, Coupons and Recalls 2016
I know it can be difficult considering how scary some of the reviews of this dog food make it sound. I stand by the 2.5-star rating that I am giving Beneful today. I simply am not convinced that this food is good for dogs. The ingredients are of average quality, and there are better options out there.
