The Research and Development group at Mars Petcare US includes scientists and nutritionists that provide much of the innovation behind our brands, including PEDIGREE® Food for Dogs. Our experts in Product Development and Nutrition work closely with the scientists and researchers at the WALTHAM® Centre for Pet Nutrition.While FDA approved, we recognize the growing desire of dog owners to use more natural sources of food colorants in their pet's food. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that we have significantly reduced the number of artificial colorants in our PEDIGREE® Dry Recipes, and we continue to explore future alternative recipe improvements.Last night the same one had another seizure and I started doing research online to try and find out what might be happening. That's when I found out about the issues with Pedigree. With so many of the same complaints, why isn't something being done to get this food off the market? For us pet owners, these are our babies. We love them as family. Something needs to be done about this company selling food that makes animals sick and has even killed some. I still have one unopened bag and about 40 pounds in a container that I will have to dispose of. My dogs will not eat another bite. I just hope that no permanent damage has been done.I have feed my dogs Pedigree dry chicken flavor dog food for 2 decades, recently we noticed one dog was losing her hair and 3 others were throwing up the food. We changed to the beef flavor Pedigree dry. Now all 6 dogs are throwing up & having diarrhea periodically for the past 2 weeks. As of 2 days ago all 6 are throwing up and having diarrhea. Today I will change their food to a NON pedigree product. I had this problem with IAMS 20 years ago and later found out they had melamine found in their food. Something has to happen and have the dog food regulated so our pets are safe to eat it.I just recently bought my dog a bag of Pedigree dog food. This is the brand I always buy her and everything has always been fine. However, this time I opened the bag and poured some into her bowl and I noticed a roach. I threw that out and poured some more and noticed 2 more roaches. I finally looked into the bag and the bag was full of dead large roaches. It really disgusts me to know that I've been feeding my dog this brand. I counted over 16 roaches in total and it's disgusting. Thats was just from what I saw. Who knows how many more were in between or at the bottom of the bag. DO NOT BUY YOUR PETS PEDIGREE.I created a group and a page on Facebook for pet owners to share their stories. "Experiences with Pedigree Dog Food". Hopefully with enough people we can actually do something to warn other dog lovers. A dog is more than just a dog. A dog is a best friend, a companion, or in my case a family member and I'm not going to let what happened to Hoss happen to any other dog.
