My vet recommended the Science Diet dry dog food for weight loss for my older dachshunds and then I decided to look up what is in it and low and behold it has Propylene Glycol in it which is an ingredient in anti freeze!!!! It causes cancer and Kidney failure and death as it builds up in the dogs body, no wonder we are having so many dogs dieing. I also read that many other dog food companies use this ingredient for a preservative. It also said it has already been taken out of cat food because it is so dangerous to cats. Wow whats with this Hills and Science Diet????? I really thought I was doing something good and healthy for my dogs but I see it is not, in fact it is a death sentence for my fur babies and I will never forgive myself for giving them your dog food. I feel like I have shortened their little lives and they are so innocent because they are dependent on us to care for them and give them and feed them a healthy safe diet. Why would a company who leads us to believe they are a reputable company who claims to care about dogs, put this poison in their dog foods. I hope you have a good explanation for this one Science Diet and Hills dog food company, because I don't believe there is a good explanation for this except money the good old dollar sign. As long as you put Propylene Glycol in the dog food it preserves it from getting old which makes it last longer on the shelf and in the warehouse, so there for it saves you money Science Diet and Hills by not having to throw away out dated old dog food as soon, since it is preserved by Propylene Glycol and will last longer on the shelf and in the warehouse which saves your company money, that's where the good old dollar comes in, and you save the good old dollar, Science diet and Hills. I am so saddened by this. There is an article on the web about Science Diet getting the government ok to use this Propylene Glycol in their dog food too, so if the governments involved you know its bad. By the way I also read that all vets that sell Science Diet and Hills dog food gets a compensation Kick back for selling all they can. I am also dissappointed in my vet for recommending this dog food. I believe he knows better besides if he can sell me this dog food and cause kidney failure or cancer in my dogs then he makes money too because I would take them to him for a check up and treatment. What a racket!! What a bunch of dishonest thieves and and fur baby killers. Shame on all of you who are involved in this scam!!!! I, as would many other dog owners like an explanation for your use of Propylene Glycol in your dog foods although I don't believe there is a good enough explanation out there to help my fur babies now that their lives have been shortened..
I took my cat to the vet for bloody urine. She has a couple kidney stones. She was put on Hills CD Urinary Wet cat food. After 6 days she became very ill, throwing up, refusing to eat, barely drinking and very lethargic. This is a perfectly healthy cat until eating this food. Now her liver enzymes are high, they are talking about pancreatitis, and of course want to do more very expensive tests. Until eating the Hills CD she was fine. Except for the kidney stones she has been perfectly healthy. Until eating this food then very ill over night. Beware about this food.
