Just like in humans obesity is a the leading cause. If it was not diet, what was the cause?
I don't know.....he never said his dog was obese. Just like in humans, obesity is only ONE Cause of diabetes. There are many other causes that have nothing to do with weight or food intake. Simply put, diabetes is a disease caused by either a deficiency in insulin or the inability of the body to use the insulin. I know a number of diabetics as the disease is genetically prevalent in my family. Most of the diabetics in my family are far from obese.
We had a diabetic beagle as well. She was never obese.
I've fed pro plan for several years now, to however many beagles we may have at the time. Purina supports the trial scene more than anyone IMO (Garmin up there as well). My ***** won the Purina Award for 15" female class in 2015; they gave me $1,500 and several bages of food, paid for me to travel and lodge in Kentucky to receive an award at the same time as the SPO Nationals, which allowed me to compete in that trial on their dime.
Loyal user of pro plan, buy it on chewy.com and have it delivered free of sales tax and shipping charges. Saved the points circles and cashed them in for a few hundred dollars worth of checks.
Know a few guys who feed victor and give it good endorsemenrs, but pro plan works for me.
As I said, obesity is the leading cause for diabetes in humans and dogs.
Never said it was the only one, just the most prevalent. I simply asked if there was another explanation.
If we are going to compare knowledge on diabetes, my dad is a Type 2 diabetic (some would say I am predisposed) and I am a Nationally Registered EMT (NREMT) so I have a studied diabetes more than most and understand there are other causes which is why I asked the question.
This article says obesity, poor diet, and lack of exercise, but leaves the door open to vaccinations as a cause.
Looks like danforths sold out in 2001 to Nestle at a tune of 10.3 billion
I do know they own 3 miles of a spring fed creek with wild trout in it ..lower half is public fishing ...caught some decent bows out of it ,,Fight much better than a hatchery raised fish ,,,colorful too ,,,,
Not so good article about Nestle purina http://healthypets.mercola.com/site...015/09/21/nestle-purina-merrick-pet-care.aspx
pro plan forever , all Purina dog food has to beat there competitor 60/40 are they will not sell it .
This dog is lean not fat never was, 7 years old. We could not get her regulated so took to specialist to find out she also has a thyroid problem, so as time progresses she comes up with cataracts she was blind.
So we get the thyroid and diabetes under control. I then took her to another specialist and had her eyes fixed. She can see and is a very happy dog.
All three vets said there is no answers to why this happened or to any dog.
What breed? If you said I couldn't find it. I saw somewhere there were some breeds that are more likely to get it.
Nestle has owned Purina pet foods since I started hauling it out of Davenport Iowa several years now.
Purina livestock is under different ownership.
Mars owns pet food labels as well.
Candy bar companies get in the pet food business and now diabetes is running rampant among pets. Coincidence ??? I don't think so.
Purina livestock is Land O Lakes.
As far as the boycotts go, Purina has always been very supportive of hunting sports. Personally I can't get behind refusing to do business with them for where they advertise.
Not to mention that things they do for the local community. My kids love going to the farm in Labadie.
I've work at 1 checkerboaed square for 38 years and always our slogan has been your pets is our passion and we live that!!
I ALMOST didn't say anything, but I won't leave it alone after the slogan that's posted about Purina.
The reason for me to post is simple. I was feeding my dogs Purina for their whole life, until about a year or so ago. My male started itching almost nonstop. It got so bad that I took him to the vet and he told me he was allergic to something. He then started asking me questions about his diet and such. When I told him I was feeding Purina, he told me he figures that was what was making him itch. Purina started putting red dye in their food to give it more eye appeal. The problem? Many dogs are allergic to red dye. I quit feeding that to both of them and started feeding Iams. The itching immediately became less and by the end of two weeks, was gone altogether.
My questions would be... Why in the world would a company that makes dog food put something in the food that some dogs are allergic to when it's doing nothing but adding eye appeal?
That's certainly not making the "pets be your passion" to me!!!
Switched to Kirklands Lamb and Rice about 10 ish years ago due to the high reviews, and the low comparative price.
We shop at Costco "less" now that the kids are older, so it's getting to be more inconvenient for us since there's only one place to buy it, but still not bad.
which dog food did you have the problem with? to the best of my knowledge no formula of the top Purina dog foods have changes in the pass few years. Purina has multiple dog foods for dogs with allergies , did you call customer service .
I have no desire to fall into a debate over this or any other topic on this board. I merely stated facts, which are true and accurate. If you chose to take that as an attack then that's on you.
Getting a Purina farms bird dog pup used to take a long time and was a big deal. I wonder if they still do that ?
