START A PETITION 25,136,189 members: the world's largest community for good
Mar 14, 2009

"Two separate law firms are gathering information for potential class action lawsuits against Canidae and Nutro, the pet food manufacturers whose products are alleged to have caused widespread pet illness."

"Affected dogs have experienced rectal bleeding, loose and bloody stools, lethargy, and death, according to consumer complaints posted on internet forums and websites."


I have witnessed some of these side affects first hand from the Canidae. I wrote to the legal team with my story. Not sure what good it will do since it was before the recipie change.

Get those stories in if your pet has been affected. If you know someone's pet has been affected PLEASE encourage them to contact one of the law firms with their story!

This is an investigation only. From what I have heard it is totally bogus, only an ad for a new law firm trying to get customers. I sell Canidae and NEVER have had any problems! I also have heard that another manufacturers rep may have started this rumor to try to bring down Canidae...I feel completely confident selling both Felidae and Canidae to my customers.(I am a wheat-corn-and-soy-free pet food store) I have been in business for over 4 years and have two stores. Canidae has been and is my best seller. The ingredient change did bother some dogs; my dog has an allergy to barley. BUT this is not a reason to sue them. NO WHERE ON ANY SITE HAVE I FOUND ANYTHING ON A DOG DYING FROM CANIDAE! Do your not believe the rumors. DOGS ARE NOT DYING; some dogs cannot deal with barley, but just put them on California Natural. The people who are in trouble are those feeding any Purina products, Iams, Science Diet, Eukanuba and any grocery food store food. ALL CORN; indigestible, dries the coat and skin, filler and who knows where it is coming from? And byproducts? If you find any concrete or sawdust, don"t be surprised either...these grocery store manufacturers don't care about your dogs and cats...the small companies like Canidae do. I am behind Canidae all the way! And I am the biggest animal lover ever!
