I have tried Nutro Natural Choice trays in the past with no reaction. Today my malt vomitted huge chunks of it and has mucousy diahrea. This is really gross but it is yellowish in colour and explosive. I have been cleaning like crazy. I know it has to be the Nutro. I am worried.

I know others here like it but I wouldn't let Nikki touch the stuff. If you have ginger, that usually will sooth a tummy

She had diahrea twice tonight and I hope giving her Sisu Kids probiotic dopholis tablets was okay. I gave her 2. I have given them to Vanila before. There chewable cherry flavoured probitics.
I hear ya Nikki's mom about the Nutro......I felt so hesitant to buy it cause I usually just buy Merrick wet, Acana (still love it) and Cani-source dehydrated raw. I really regret buying the Nutro cause it smelled horrible. She only ate a bit of it. I will never buy that horrid stuff again !!!

Okay----she's just fine now and I am really glad. I called the Nutro company and they wanted to send me free coupons and I said...No Thank you !

The FDA is investigating Nutro after all complaints about dogs getting sick and dying. They were one of the foods recalled a few years ago.

FDA Confirms Probe of NUTRO Pet Food Deaths, Illnesses

Consumer complaints about Nutro Pet Foods

If she's not 100% tomorrow, I'd contact your vet.
I read this link and there are very recent updates (even yesterday and almost daily before that) about pets having the same symptoms that the OP reported seeing in her Malt. Sounds very scary.

Oh my those articles explain the same symptoms my malt had. Today I made her boiled rice and she ate her dehydrated raw and no vomitting or diahrea. :thumbsup:
Nutro has too many issues with their food so never, ever again !

oh god. I took Yeager to Pet Club this afternoon to look for a carrier, the saleslady asked me what I'm feeding Yeager, I said Castor Pollux and Orijen, and she said oh boy you must be spending a lot of money on him, and then she went ahead and RECOMMENDED NUTRO TO ME!! She said it's the same quality as the foods that I'm feeding right now and is a lot cheaper. I came home and did a search on "Nutro" and this is what I see :angry:

I'm so glad there's SM! and I hope your baby will get well soon!

All Nutro products contain menadione. Avoid them like the plague. (Also Nature's Recipe and all Purina products).
Thanks,
I will definitely avoid ALL Nutro products. Ever since I fed Vanilla that one tray of Nutro she doesn't have diahrea but hep poop is still a strange yellow tinge colour.
