Poisonous Dog Food

Beneful has several lawsuits stating they are poisoning pets with their product. The lawsuits state antifreeze was added to the foods and the ingredient is even listed on the package.

According to Nestlé Purina, ingredients in the Beneful brand original style product include:

Ground yellow corn, chicken by-product meal, corn gluten meal, whole wheat flour, animal fat preserved with mixed-tocopherols, rice flour, beef, soy flour, meat and bone meal, propylene glycol, sugar, tricalcium phosphate, salt, phosphoric acid, potassium chloride, animal digest, sorbic acid (a preservative), mono and dicalcium phosphate, dried spinach, dried peas, dried carrots, L-Lysine monohydrochloride, calcium propionate (a preservative), choline chloride, zinc sulfate, Vitamin E supplement, ferrous sulfate, manganese sulfate, Red 40, niacin, Vitamin A supplement, Yellow 6, Yellow 5, copper sulfate, Vitamin B-12 supplement, calcium pantothenate, Blue 2, thiamine mononitrate, garlic oil, pyridoxine hydrochloride, riboflavin supplement, Vitamin D-3 supplement, calcium iodate, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of Vitamin K activity), folic acid, biotin, sodium selenite.

The lawsuit contends that propylene glycol is a known animal toxin and a component of antifreeze. However, the company states that the type it uses is FDA-approved and is also used in human foods such as salad dressing and cake mix.

In addition, the suit claims that mycotoxins, which are toxins produced by mold found in grains, are a health risk to dogs.

Also, bones or corncobs should never be given to your dog or cat. They can splinter into small pieces that lacerate the stomach or intestines. They can also become lodged in your pet’s throat.

If you believe your dog has swallowed something poisonous, don't panic.
  • Give 4 small Curing Pill pellets. This will help settle the dogs stomach.
  • Immediately give the dog 2 (Natures Way) Charcoal capsule (3 or 4 if the dog is large) mixed with plain yogurt or cream cheese immediately.

    Charcoal works best if given immediately. You want to stop the poison from being absorbed into your pets' body so the sooner you can get this into your dogs system the more poison the charcoal will absorb. This is the first thing the emergency vet will do so it is better if you do it at home rather than waiting for 20 to 30 minutes to pass.

    If you are able to get the dog to eat the capsule make sure to follow it with 3 oz of fluid. If the pet refuses try to put some cream cheese or butter on the capsule and place it down the pets throat. If you can't do it that way mix the charcoal with some water or yogurt and syringe the mixture into their mouth.(ALWAYS point the syringe to the side of the mouth never to the back) Pointing the syringe to the back of the mouth can aspirate the dog (get fluid into the dog's lungs) which can cause death.

  • Give your dog 1 tart cherry capsule and one Acidophilus Pearl or any acidophilus you have. This will help keep the kidneys from failing.
Now you are ready to bring your dog to the emergency room.
