We thought we would try this for our 10 year old Catahoula/Rottie mix. It made her very sick with diarrhea and she was very lethargic until we stopped the treats. Going to return it to the store the next time we go there.
The ingredient list is great which is why I bought it! Then my dog started getting extremely sick and lethargic. Refused to eat her dog food but acted like she was hungry and would eat treats. She had tiny dark inconsistent poops. Throwing up and absolutely no energy. I took her to the vet, who said she ate something that gave her a bug. She literally has no access to anything. Bathroom and bedroom doors always closed and the rest of the house is dog proofed.
They gave me meds, the next night I cooked her some hamburger and she devoured it and was still hungry. So I put half a can of this in her bowl she smelled it and made a disgusted face and refused to eat it. I dumped it, scrubbed her bowl and gave her more hamburger, which she immediately ate. I started researching the food and found on Consumer Affairs 2 dozen situations exactly like mine! It's been a few days now, and my dog still hasn't pooped, still no energy, and will only eat a little at a time. We are taking her to be tested for kidney failure from poisoning caused by this dog food! This has been the only change in her diet for the last 7 years... This food needs to be recalled!

Been with 4 health for a long time. Recently my 6 year old rottie started to not eat it. So we had to put grated cheese on it, somewhat helpful. So I personally did a taste test with Blue Buffalo. 1st was Blue Buffalo in my mouth that had the same taste threw out the chew from the beginning. I spit it out. 2nd 4 health put in my mouth and it had a pungent more of taste but when I bit it and spit it out instantly it was nasty chemical taste [I mean nasty]. If you don't believe me try it. I have called Diamond Pet Food and have told them my experience. Rottie wolfed down the buffalo food like he was starving to death. I personally will never give the food to my dogs again.
I've been feeding this to my 14 yr old dog and my 2 year old for about 8 months. Before that, they both were on the 4 Health puppy formula. About 6 months ago, the old dog would whimper and whine when he ate and afterward. I thought he had bad tooth. I had the vet look at his teeth, there were no issues. He started barfing foam. A few years back a vet said he had acid reflux and to give him an acid reducer 1/2 hr before he eats. So I started that up. It wasnt helping, so I started mixing some instant potato flakes, cooked rice, a little canned Ole Roy, and milk in with a little dry 4 health. He doesnt cry when he eats now!
I think the 4 Health food by itself hurts his stomach (possible an ulcer)...and he's lost so much weight, you can feel his bones! I went back to the 4health puppy food while continuing my people food concoction for the old dog, including a hard boiled egg. He's doing much better! If 4H is hurting my old dog, what consequences are there continuing to feed it to our beautiful two yr old Pyrador? I'm ready to start making them both food in the kitchen. Who can you trust? Re cat food: I've had a number of cats on 9 Lives Urinary formula without one problem. I had a cat prone to UTI, and I switched to a different food once or twice, and he peed in the sink and let me know! Amazing creatures!
Bought this at TS and thought this grain free food would be good for our three dogs. Boy, was I wrong!!! All three usually active dogs are just laying around, have diarrhea and are throwing up. We even have to carry them outside to go potty (if they make it that far). Would never ever buy this stuff again. Pet owners stay away from 4Health dog food!!!
We have sister hounds and thought this brand was the way to go. Early this summer, we noticed both of the girls were not eating typically, their normally firm stools were straight diarrhea. Several times, they had vomiting (white foam included) and explosive diarrhea on more than several of occasions. We changed everything else except their food brand/line (this 4health food). After going round and round with the vets, at LEAST hundreds in vet bills, several rug cleaners, innumerable phone calls, and even tears, in desperation, we changed their food brand/line. THANKFULLY now they are BOTH MUCH better. We will NEVER go back to this line again....EVER. STAY AWAY FROM THIS LINE OF FOOD!
I purchased 4 Health canned food after talking to someone that worked at TS. Our little dachshund puppy loves it but has now started with horrible diarrhea. She’s already housebroken but she can’t make it outside with how bad this is. She has finished 1 1/2 can but you better believe there will be no more. She’s slept more today and wants to be carried and that’s not her personality. A couple of our other dogs have ate it out of bowl and they now have diarrhea. I’ve thrown the rest in the garbage and will never purchase this again.
I have a 1yr old Pit Lab mix that I had tried many dry kibbles and she wouldn't eat them and was losing weight so I tried adding canned food which she ate more of but still showed little interest in till I bought 4health lamb and rice canned food, she wolfs this food down like nothing and has put weight on. Her coat looks awesome and she is so much happier. I have since started using their kibble too and she is doing great. She refuses any other dog food and doesnt like chicken or beef but haven't tried fish yet so may try that at some point to mix it up a bit.
4Health Grain Free Dog Food. I switched my dog to 4Health for just one night gave him a 1/4 cup with his regular dog food. That night at 2am he started throwing up and was not sure it was the dog food so I gave him an other feeding in the morning and he was fine then mid morning he started throwing up again until he was throwing up blood. I am now at the ER and they believe he has a gastrointestinal problem and will have to stay overnight with an IV as he will not keep any food down. They are getting him X-rays now. I am praying he will be okay. But not sure. DO NOT GIVE YOUR THIS FOOD!!!
My dog recently stopped wanting to eat this food and has been getting sick. Just realized today that the inside of the can is lined with a gray paint/chemical peel type of coating that is peeling off into the food. I will be returning the remainder of the cans I have and will never purchase this food again. I thought I was purchasing food that would keep my dog healthy. Doesn't matter what is in the food if it is packaged irresponsibly. I pray my dog isn't seriously ill and wanted to warn others who are feeding this food to their dogs.
