A Protest Against Pedigree and Mars Corporation
First and foremost; Don't buy your dog the item pictured at the right!
I was busy writing a hub about mayoral elections here in Puerto Rico. All of a sudden, "Greg, come here," Maggie said with a tone that was frantic. Just a little earlier I had cleaned up vomit that our inside dog, a Chihuahua named Chiquito, had spilled. He was acting very sick and we had no idea why.
I ran to my lovely wife where she was pointing out on the balcony to the two dogs we had rescued when we were driving near the Cerro Maravilla. Someone had abandoned them and our hearts could not let them just try to survive on their own. As they are both girls, we named them Cerra and Merra. There was vomit everywhere and we suddenly realized why.
Earlier that day, we had went grocery shopping and like usual, the dogs had to have a treat. We decided to try something new. Our thoughts were that Pedigree labeled items should be good. They are expensive so we bought the dogs a bag of Dentastix.
We now have three very ill dogs. It is from the Dentastix; it has to be. Everything else is the same.
Why am I writing this hub? I will explain further, but first see our pet dogs that are suffering from a item that is supposed to be safe and good for them.

After cleaning about three gallons of dog vomit, I went back to the computer. I looked up the Pedigree web site and immediately complained.
I have not heard a word.
I noticed they want to know where you are from, but they have no place to enter Puerto Rico. I had to put a State in or a province of Canada. Not only did I complain about their product, but I just had to ask if they have a problem with Puerto Rico too.
Do I sound angry?
The amount of money a person spends on pets to get a product that is not safe for them happens more and more these days. It seems to me that many of these large corporations just don't care; they just want the peasants hard earned money.
I am requesting that everyone who reads this boycotts any Pedigree named items. This company makes many other pet items too and I will list them. There are three companies listed on the bag and I am posting links to their web sites. If people write and complain, maybe, just maybe they will listen.
The other products they make and distribute are (Mars Corporation):
- Banfield Pet Hospital
- Royal Canin
- The Goodlife Recipe
I ask that people please boycott all of these until Mars, Pedigree and Waltham make amends. If they do, I will post immediately.
Thank you for your cooperation!
