Got a bag of Purina ALPO Prime Cuts® Dry Dog Food a week ago for our 4 dogs. In a week, 2, 6 month old healthy dogs past away with 48 hours of vomiting and diarrhea with blood and yellow foam, shakes fevers, lethargic, wouldn't eat or drink. Not even IV fluids saved them. Now our 12 year old male is showing the same signs. All we can do is hive IV fluids and pray. Only dog not showing signs yet is our 4 year old female that only took a couple bits then turned away. Never thought it might be the food until I looked more into it. Now right before Christmas our family has lost our loved puppies, scared for our other 2 and can't do anything but pray.. How can they keep selling this when it has been known to kill our family members. Something needs to be done.. And, it needs done, asap. We are adults and losing our pets feel like a whole in my heart. My kids really don't, know how to seal, with this.. Stop hurting families..
About a week and a half ago my husband's cousin's healthy dog died. She was not sick but she died and her owner didn't know why she died, he had no use for the dog food so he gave it to my husband for our healthy German Shepherd. She had been fed this Alpo Prime dog food about two or three cans for a couple day. She had been coughing and had not been her usual self on November 30 then I noticed blood on her chin but thought she had cut it on something so later I checked on her and she had coughed up more blood with phlegm in with the blood.
She was wheezing and coughing but never noticed if she had diarea or blood in it. When we went to bed that night she was still alive but early that morning my husband heard her faint bark. She passed away early Sunday morning December 1st... I have cried all day. I knew that is what killed her and my husband's cousin's healthy dog both within a week and a half. My husband thinks someone poisoned her and his cousin's dog. Still not for sure until I was researching and found this site. Why are they still allowed to sell this poison dog food ... Our hearts are hurting.
I bought a bag of Alpo dry dog food my dog ate his second bowl last night and is now lethargic vomiting and having diarrhea leaking out everywhere. He still drinking water though thank God. I'm going to feed him boiled chicken and white rice later and if he isn't better tomorrow I'll take him to the vet. After reading all these reviews I'm left wondering how they are getting away with this.
Our dog has been eating Alpo Prime Cuts & she developed horrible itching all over her body. She sat & scratched all day & night. When I switched her to a hamburger that I cooked & applied Burt's Bees for dogs spray for itching, she began to improve. I also used Bath & Body Eucalyptus Spearmint lotion on her. She is feeling better now. I would not use Alpo again - read the ingredients, they are terrible!
My 3 and a half month old pug eats Science Diet but I wanted to start training him with treats. I picked up a box of the Alpo small bites and within hours Patrick is sick with diarrhea. I am going to put him on boiled chicken and rice diet and see if it helps. He has a vet appt on Monday. STAY AWAY FROM ALPO!

My female bully is 2 half months old, usually very hyper and full of love but after eating a lil Alpo she now vomiting foam and has diarrhea. She lost a lot of weight. Would like answer after reading all these reviews.
I bought my pitbull the 31 pound bag of Alpo Prime Cuts last night around 5pm. I fed him a bowl before bed and fed him again this afternoon around 1pm. By 6pm he was vomiting and foaming at the mouth. By 7pm he was seizing and he passed away at 7:45pm. I will never use this dog food again and by some of the reviews others won't either. This dog food killed my dog!!!!
Vomiting stomach pain lethargy by my black lab after eating 1/4. I have had to put my lab on chicken and rice feedings. If she continues to be ill Monday I will need to take her to a vet. I gave 3 cans of Alpo left which I will not use. Any brand of Alpo is restricted from my house.
There is mold inside of the canned Chop House dog food made by Alpo. Our dogs have been ill with a cough that causes them both to regurgitate a foaming substance for a few months. Although they never visited a kennel it is similar to kennel cough although all antibiotics used to treat kennel cough have not been effective. Today I opened a can of Alpo Chop House food only to find a large amount of black furry mold inside. I will be pursuing a claim as my pets have suffered immensely due to the lack of quality provided by Purina with their Alpo Chop House brand. We are now starting a chicken and rice feeding plan in hopes that our dogs health will improve. I suggest no one purchases Chop House for their pets as it is toxic. I will enclose a photo of the mold. Purina acknowledged the mold and we are currently pursuing reimbursement for the veterinary bills paid to treat our dogs as well as sending the can in for analysis.
I needed to cover my dog's allergy pills up so she would take them and I thought the gravy from prime cut canned dog food would help. Thursday I gave her a half can then Friday morning another half and Friday night dinner another half. Then she peed twice in the house which she never does. By Saturday she would not eat or hardly get up by 11:30 we were at the vets. She was really dehydrated and by Sunday she could hardly walk and she was admitted to the vet hospital and by Sunday she was not hardly breathing and then Monday we said goodbye to her!! I am broken and hurt!!! and l know beyond a shadow of doubt... that Alpo prime cuts... canned dog food killed my baby!!
