We have received numerous questions about issues with Beneful food by Purina and a recent class action lawsuit. Below is a statement by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), which is the organization that represents veterinarians in the United States. There will always be debate among pet owners about which brand of food is best for their furry loved ones, but know that nutritional counselling is an important aspect of our care for your pet at Durango Animal Hospital.
While the situation may change, currently, there are no recalls associated with Beneful or any proof that toxins have been found in any bags of food tested. If you have fed your dog Beneful (or any other food for that matter) and are concerned about possible signs of intoxication, please contact us immediately and bring your pet in for an exam. We will try to keep you updated as more details emerge.
As far as what food we recommend for our clients, there are many quality foods available in the pet food market, but we are proud to recommend and carry the full line of Science Diet products by Hill's Pet Nutrition. Science Diet has a proven track record spanning decades and more research to back the quality of their food than the majority of other pet food manufacturers combined.
