Hill’s Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling 62 bags of Science Diet® Adult Small & Toy Breed™ dry dog food.
I thought, "Could it really be a coincidence that a few days after I started him on the Hills metabolic diet he got so deathly ill?" I began researching online and found hundreds and hundreds of complaints From consumers that also purchased Hills products. Some of them ranged from their pets becoming deathly ill and some even reported the unfortunate death of their pets! I couldn't believe what I was reading. How could this be happening to so many people and this product still be on the market and the veterinarian still be prescribing it. Well I will tell You why! It is a huge moneymaking racket for veterinarians. They get Enormous kickbacks from the Hills company! Unfortunately dog food is not regulated by the FDA I so it is difficult to identify and report a problem. I am completely beside myself that such a horrific thing is going on!
I came to find out through his vet that this food is high in fat and known to cause pancreatitis. As expected and previously read on previous reviews that also shared the same experience, upon expressing my complaint to Hill's with medical bills and tests that all pointed to the food being the culprit, Hill's told me that my "claim does not qualify for reimbursement." I am currently working on pressing charges. Someone needs to put a stop to such a sick and selfish company that thrives on slowly killing our beloved pets.

I couldn't understand what had happened to my perfectly healthy baby boy. He was completely lethargic and not doing very well at all. They sent me home with a different Hill's prescription wet food I/d for sensitive stomachs and told me to start using that instead. After two days he still was not bouncing back at all. The vet called to check on him and suggested that he may have a problem with his liver and wanted me to bring him back for blood work in a week or so. We trust our vets to Take care of our beloved pets so why would we think they would ever do anything to harm our pets? I racked my brain day and night trying to figure out what could have possibly happened and then it hit me like a ton of bricks! I remembered when he was 12 weeks old I had him on Hills Science Diet puppy food. He had almost the exact same symptoms until I finally took him off of it and switched him to another brand. I am writing this review to let every pet owner know never to use any Hills product pet foods! It all started when I took my two-year-old Shichon Jasper to his yearly veterinarian examination. He received all of his vaccines and the vet told me he was a few pounds overweight and recommended that I put him on the Hills prescription metabolic diet. I purchased two cans of the wet food to start mixing it in with the grain free dry food I had been giving him for a year and a half. Approximately five days later he became deathly ill. He was profusely vomiting until there was blood in it and had diarrhea so bad. His stool was very mucousy and bloody. I took him to the vet immediately to have his stool tested to make sure he didn't have any parasite. Everything came back negative! They started him on a daily medication called ** for the diarrhea and gave him an anti-nausea injection. Quick trip to the hospital and hundreds of dollars of scans/X-rays later, "nothing wrong" on the scans. This was not "just stress from being left alone" or a sudden change in diet. This scenario (gone overnight, cat left with dry food) had happened many times in the past without issue. However the doctors chalked it up to an IBD flare up, so did I. Fast forward to this weekend, again, left her alone for less than 24 hours with the same Hills' dry food. Same batch (was kept in a sealed container made for pet food). Upon return, same painful symptoms being exhibited, only this time with blood in the diarrhea. So much diarrhea, just like before. Pain, rear leg lifting, pleading/scared/sick vocalizations. Then I found this site after doing a search. Saw the reviews explaining the formula change. Looked on the bag, sure enough, this has the "new formula" verbiage on it.
