Kirkland Canned Dog Food | Review | Rating | Recalls
One of our great rescuers has had some serious problems with some canned Kirkland dog food. Here’s the email we received:
As promised, the first ingredient in this Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain Turkey & Pea Stew for Dogs recipe is fresh turkey. Fresh turkey is a high-quality ingredient and source of meat-rich protein, not to mention natural flavor. In dry dog foods, fresh meats sometimes lose a significant portion of their volume during cooking but the turkey broth and vegetable broth in this formula helps to maintain the moisture content of the raw ingredients and of the product itself. Moisture is very important for your dog’s digestion and it helps to keep him hydrated as well.
My three standard poodles have been extremely healthy their entire lives. We made the fatal decision to switch them from Canidea (which is an excellent dog food) to Kirklands. Within 2 months two of our dogs liver enzymes where through the roof. Friday, our 2.5 year old girl died! We are having a necropsy done with full analysis.. We are praying that will give us answers but it looks like a lot of people have had similar experiences… This needs to be publicized!!!!!
