          what you said previously was 100% correct Misha. see the similiarities of the 2 storytellers? both just signed up.... there should be a 24hr wait for new sign-ups to start posting in the forums if not this will go on and on and on and on and on and on......I am guessing this is a law firm spam. any takers lol

      It will come I'm sure. How much do you thin Ol'Roy should be sued for? I am thinking a number that is very very high. maybe like $986,675,334,291. 98

      Think that would be enough?

    I think $986,675,334,291. 99 will be more fair lol

    If the story were true about the dog food I think these people would be concentrating on writing complaint letters and building a case on this company rather than posting about it on the Internet.  We had three dogs that all mysteriously died after being treated at one vet's office, so could I say that the vet was responsible?  No, it was probably just a coincidence and the time for each of those pets to go.  We live in way too much of a blame happy culture anyway and pets can get sick or die from a multitude of reasons, not just because they ate brand x of dog food.

    I hate to break it to you, Amy, but there was a total recall of a specific type of Ol'Roy dog food because some sort of contamination had gotten into the food. I can't remember all the specifics of it, but I do know that Ol'Roy has had quite a few problems with food-related illnesses in dogs. Have you tried switching to a different brand or taking your pug to the vet? You can't sit here and whine and NOT have taken the poor dog in for a check-up. That would be extremely cruel and insensitive of you.

    Try switching brands. Diamond's a good one to go with; I almost swear by that stuff. Another one is PMI Nutrition Exclusive dog food. I don't know how new this brand is, but I'd never seen it before until my mom brought it home one day in an attempt to save money. But the food's exceptional for dogs.

    If you're not sure which brand you should go for, check out the ingredients label; it'll tell you just how good the food really is. You have to look for the meat product. How far down is it from the top of the list? If there are 4+ ingredients before the meat product, it's not a good buy. With that PMI stuff, Lamb is the first ingredient. Not Lamb Byproduct, or Lamb Meal, or any other meet byproduct substitute thing. Just straight Lamb. If you can find something with straight meat as the first ingredient, you've found the Golden Egg of dog foods.

    If switching brands doesn't help, then your dog has a medical condition not linked to the food and he needs medical attention immediately. Though, you should've brought him in at the first signs of a problem.
