Greetings, squadlings. Here comes another post about dogs.
Last year, my then-three-year-old dog was having strange episodes of shaking and losing control of his back legs. We were confused, and his vet didn’t know what the problem was.
Eventually, we found out there was a lawsuit about the dog food Beneful, which was causing normally healthy dogs to have seizures. Yes, dogs have died from this. You can read about the lawsuit here.
Well, squadlings, turns out my dog was eating Beneful. He was having seizures.
However, my other dog, who lives with my mom, was eating Fromm’s brand food. Haven’t heard of it? That’s because it’s not sold at Target.
From this, we’ve come to conclude that any brand of dog/cat food that can be purchased at your average grocery store is GARBAGE. My dog has been off Beneful since news of the lawsuit broke, and he hasn’t had a seizure since.
Yes, yes, I know, better brands of dog food that are sold specifically at pet stores are a bit more expensive, but guess what? Crappy dog food can and will harm your dog.
DO NOT FEED YOUR DOG BENEFUL. DO NOT DO IT. DAMMIT, DON’T DO IT.
This has been a PSA, squadlings.
