Default Another food question, I think my kibble might be bad, opinions?

Fiancee thinks im crazy when i told him that i think the food i bought (NV Prairie venison/millet) might have something off with it. It doesnt have a rancid smell but the smell is kind of 'off' not the normal dog food smell. I tested it on my folks shepherd mix that eats ANYTHING & she didnt even finish it, Josefina is not really eating it very well either but she has always been a little wishy washy on eating kibble. Buddy is still eating it tho, but he is a garbage disposal & will eat poo if i put it in his bowl so he isnt really a good way to test dog food :/.



the batch of the same food before this they ate with NP, at first i thought it was the venison raw (which actually had mostly lamb in it) but after Yumi wouldnt eat it, i am beginning to think there is something up with the food. I got it from a store in Houston, but i dont live there anymore & it would be impossible to get back there since i now live about 150 mi from houston now.

Where do you store the food? Is it in a cool/dry place?

Take it back, I'm guessing they are going to expand their recall to the venison as well. We had a customer return one last night that, like you said, was just off.

I let my rep know today.

Easier said then done, fiancée thinks I'm being paranoid about the whole thing... Guess I have been over protective about them since Izze's accident back in feb but sometimes I know he thinks I get a little over zealous about it.

Contact the company. They may issue you a refund or a voucher for a store closer to you. Though the last time I had a minor issue with NV they never got back to me..

I second this. Being that they're in the middle of a recall right now, they may be more likely to get back to people in a timely manner so they don't lose more customers.

If your instinct tells you something is wrong, it probably is. Follow your feelings. I would contact the company and in the meantime switch to something else. I have learned in the past that that little voice in your head knows more than you realize!

Contact the company. Don't feed the food. The customer ended up with projectile vomit from her dog after a couple days of feeding it.

I'd switch to something else until they get everything under control.
