Our question this week was:

My dog Sparky died February the 28th. I had been feeding him Iams, it has the same code, which is on their recall list. His immune system was attacking his body; do you think the dog food is what killed him?

Answer

Hi – thanks for your email. I'm very sorry to hear about your dog. I'd recommend reading the following article "Pet Food Recall – Advice to Pet Owners" that tells you what to do if you suspect a problem with the food.

To my knowledge, the food has not caused an immune system reaction – it has only caused kidney failure. Where the kidney values abnormal?

I'd recommend discussing your concerns with your vet. Since he has the blood work results and all – he can help guide you as to if he thinks that the food was a problem.

Best of luck.

Dr. Debra
