I have, I think it is one of those things, Some dogs need grain free and companies are tryin to make it sound like all dogs need grain free.

Anybody notice that most of those are some of the more popular of the grain-free or natural foods for dogs?

Sherry, are you making your own raw food mix (not commercial raw food)? I used to do that, but I couldn't afford to keep it up. Then when my boys had problems (one a degenerative disease that starts in the jaw area) I fed the commercial raw for him. His brother got cancer and I ended up feeding him raw ground beef, which was all he really wanted and also cost less.

We feed our dogs a raw food diet and they are doing great on it. We dont have to worry about their food being recalled.

When life hands you trouble slow down and stop to smell the roses. Life is so short, live like today is the last day of your life. Enjoy.
My name is Sherry and I am from Erie, PA but live in Ijamsville, MD for the time being. I am now living in Georgia with my daughter and her family for the time being.

Dr Jean Dodds, a well known vet and researcher, wrote an excellent article on why this may not be correct. While I no longer feed grain free, I wouldn’t get over excited about this until more research is done.
I have a girl with a severe heart condition from the time she was 12 weeks. The vets all gave her 6 months to live. She’s now 6 YEARS, and for 4 of those years ate grain free 4-Health. I switched her over when her vet bills had me searching for something less expensive.
She’s a prime example of why NOT to panic over this.

Luckily the dog food we buy isn't on the list. I pray your dog food is safe!
