My sister gave me these after my puppy had a vet visit, I don't know the brand but I have used Bil-Jac. These treats drive my dogs crazy. My puppy goes nuts for them and I love that the bag is full of treats. Most bags you don't get nearly the amount you get with this one. No signs of diarrhea in the puppy or my 10 year pom or my 4 year old husky. They all love it and they are all doing great on them. I don't see what the problem is other than they all have major energy after 2 or 3 threat. I like them.
We have been feeding our Maltipoo Bil-Jac dog food since she was a puppy. The current bag we have, we have discovered 2 rocks so far. I am so upset. Not sure how to go about contacting the company. But they should be more careful.

Our dog Penni, a coonhound mix, came from a local shelter (and had been there for 13 mos) and ate pretty much whatever was donated to the shelter I’m sure. We brought her home in February of 2019, and were feeding her the Authority brand dog food. She loves being outside and would RUN ALL OVER the yard most of the day. She was losing weight so fast and she is a big girl. She had started to drop weight which was fine because there was no curvature between her chest and tummy so forget being able to see her ribs. Well, I wasn’t sure I was feeding her enough and turns out I wasn’t feeding her and the birds enough! I brought her food in and saw that she would eat a bit and I mean not even a half a cup!
She was about 90 lbs when we adopted her, so when I took her to the vet and found out she had dropped to 70 lbs I was certain my fur baby was sick. My vet tried to feed her and she wouldn’t touch the food or the treats. She was perfectly healthy just way underweight. So my husband and I went straight to PetSmart to buy different food. There was a gentleman down one of the aisles talking to my husband while I was checking out some other options and his name was George. He introduced us to Bil-Jac and we decided to try it. Oh my Lord! Penni wakes me up around 7:30ish EVERY morning for her food and clangs her dog bowl all over the floor when she’s ready for dinner! Thank you George and Bil-Jac! Penni is a healthy 75 lbs and continues to run all over.
This treat causes diarrhea in puppies. I am taking my 11 week old puppy to the vet to be checked. I'm pretty sure it's the treats from Bil-Jac that is causing this diarrhea. I just want to warn other owners of puppies not to give the treat to their puppies.
After the huge food recall scare we wanted to find our dogs good food and treats. We ran into my husband’s old Co-worker and she had her dogs on Bil-Jac for years. We have four dogs and they love the food and treats. We have been using the dog food for many years now and everyone brings their dog over when they visit and their dogs just love it and most have switched to Bil-Jac. Love it’s made here in the USA and family owned.
We have a Golden Retriever, Pomeranian, Papillon, and Mixed breed little spit fire. Lol. We rescued her from a local rescue group. She was mean and a bitter but my pack is so awesome and she is so loved. She is a totally different dog. Until I take her for her yearly checkup and shots. Then the little girl turns into Cujo dog. Lol. I will muzzle her at the vet or she will bite them so hard and fast. But when we got her you could see her skin it and she looked pretty ratty. But now she has a thick beautiful coat. Our Pomeranian OMG she has a gorgeous coat. Everyone just loves her big bushy coat. My Golden he has Epilepsy but he has a beautiful coat and 12 yrs old. Last our Papillon is 17 yrs old and gone blind and deaf but if you didn’t look close up at him you would not think he’s old. His coat is also thick and shiny.
I have had neck/back surgery and not bathed them for two months. I use a doggy cologne when visitors come. But they look so healthy and our vet said what do we feed them and I told him. They sell Science Diet I think but he said their blood work is good and they look very healthy too. Oh our grand doggie schnauzer she always came over for weekends and loved Bil-Jac. She would not want to eat her food when she went home so she’s on Bil-Jac and her coat is beautiful and silky from eating it as well.
Gave these to my Yorker and golden, the Golden has diarrhea. The Yorker had bloody diarrhea for 10 days. Took her to vet and was told she had a virus. So I thought maybe the treats weren’t the cause. Waited about 3 weeks and gave them some treats, bloody diarrhea came back. Do not give your dogs these! This MADE me pick one star. I’d give them a 0.
The day after opening and training my Goldendoodle with a brand new package of this product she vomited, stopped eating and drinking. The next day she had three episodes of explosive diarrhea, in our house, a first since being house broken 6 years ago! (Thank God for wooden floors!) She’s was diagnosed with gastritis, on Flagyl for 5 days, and lost 5 out of her 78 pounds! Anyone else have any problems?
I came here to see if anyone else had reported that their dog had an allergic reaction to these treats. Our dog immediately began to dry heave and have difficulty breathing after just one of these treats was consumed. I'm not sure what ingredient in these treats caused the reaction, but we discontinued use of this product immediately. I'm only reporting this here so that other pet owners will know that it happened with our shepherd mix breed 1 year old dog.
Bil-Jac brand dry dog food was recommended to us at a PetSmart store by another dog owner. We started with Puppy Select Chicken then on to Small Breed Adult. Lately we're using Picky No More Medium breed which I settled on from Chewy.com since at the time they did not have in stock what I wanted and their price was the best. Our dog noticed the difference but eventually started eating it by the next day or so. When it's time to reorder I will go back to the Small Breed Adult since the food bits are smaller and I want her to have the additional food variety like oatmeal and yams.
My dog actually eats a home prepared diet, but for years Bil-Jac has been the back up food for the reason that it is the only prepared food on the planet that he will eat. The Bil-Jac company states that it is highly palatable and that all dogs will eat it. My friends have had the same experience with it, some of whom use it for the primary diet.
