Vets Are Warning About A Popular Pet Food Making Dogs Sick

Jan 19, 2018


A warning has gone out about cheap pet food following reports it is making dogs sick.

According to News Ltd, the Pet Food Reviews website has received 20 reports of dogs becoming ill after eating Woolworths homebrand Baxter’s products.

And the site’s editor says he has received more than 50 more reports about the products.

Vet Dr Bob Cavey said: “Cheaper-quality dog food can go through a radiation process where vital minerals and vitamins are destroyed.”

But Woolworths says it won’t be pulling the food from its shelves.

“All Woolworths products undergo rigorous and extensive testing before they are made available to customers in-store and this product complies with the relevant Australian standards,” Woolworths’ Ben Boyd said.
