Iams wet food was on the bad list - was their dry food as well?

If they are accustomed to wet food, you might try getting a dry food and then adding plain yogurt. Our dog has bad teeth and bad gas so the yogurt was recommended to help soften the dry food but I don't see why "regular" dogs wouldn't benefit as well ... just a thought!

Can someone clarify for me...wheat gluten is still the only problem ingredient, right?
Thanks.

I heard on the news last night about Sunshine Mills and now it seems that there are a lot of dog biscuits that are being recalled.

Jolie doesn't eat biscuits but she loves Greenies and they are good for her teeth. I have not heard anything about them but I will call my vet to make sure they will not hurt her.

I second your "Thank Goodness"! With all the treats being recalled, I'm just waiting to hear that the dry food has been tainted as well. I'm not sure what I'd do then ... our dog would be fine. He'll eat anything I would make him but our cat is on a food that helps prevent urinary tract infections. I don't think I could make the right food for her ...

I would have been concerned, as well. Just imagine if we had to eat the same food for that long! That would only work if it were chocolate!

Thanks.
Wheat gluten is found in animal foods, however, the culprit in the wheat gluten seems to be melamine ( a poisonous material).

I tried calling my grocery store today and was told that my store brand dog bisquits were from Sunshine Mills (the mill that recalled dog treats), but they said it was from a "separate" plant and to call Sunshine Mills. I tried that, and the phone was continually busy. Either way, I will not feed my dog these biscuits. I'll save the box though, just in case.
