Four pups dead in rural Pennsylvania, believed to be linked to EverPet

Two days ago, a very good friend of mine was forced to bury BOTH of her beloved pups. Both were less than three years old and were fed EverPet Kibbles and Bits style food for a few days prior.

Upon hearing the news, of course, I was quite upset as I loved her boys as well. In an effort to help her feel better, we spoke about what happened leading up to the sudden demise of BOTH boys within hours of each other. She advised her Pitt Bull mix, Bentley, had passed while we were at work and was found when she came home. Of course, this was extremely devastating to her and her Rottweiler mix, Nekio. After tending to all that was needed for poor Bentley, she bathed Nekio as he had gone to lie with his brother to protect him until their mom got home and was in need of a cleaning. After the bath, Nekio began to have a seizure. He would seize and then stop and then it would start all over. This went on for HOURS. My poor friend, watching her boy hurt and unable to do anything for him.

When I heard this, it brought the stories of two other pups I knew personally who had passed in the same manner since Christmas of 2013. I made phone calls inquiring about the deaths of the other two pups and we have deduced ALL four dogs at EverPet Kibbles and Bits style food. ALL FOUR!

Four different dogs, from three different towns, three different owners, three different vets; eating the same kind of food (purchased at three different Dollar General stores in DuBois, PA; Brockway, PA, and Punxsutawney, PA), having the same symptoms (fine one minute and violent seizures the next. Seizures which were so violent, they all ended with the same result. Death of their family.

I don't believe this to be a coincidence and I would like to know HOW this horrid product is still available to consumers? I want to know WHY Dollar General continues to sell this product? You are KILLING animals!

These pups were NOT statistics. They had names:
Brat -- Owned by my teenage niece who loved him with all her heart. A 2 1/2 year old Pug with no previous health problems.

Abby -- An 8 month old Lab mix owned by her loving TWO YEAR OLD master who misses her very much. Also, with NO PREVIOUS HEALTH ISSUES.

Bentley -- An almost 3 year old Pitt Bull mix owned by one of my best friends and loved dearly. No previous health problems.

and

Nekio -- An almost 3 year old Rottweiler mix owned by the same friend. No previous health problems and died within two hours of his beloved brother, Bentley.

I would hope SOMEONE has the DECENCY to answer me and provide an explanation. No words can return these beautiful animals to their owners, but some ACTION on the part of the company could prevent other pet owners from losing their four legged friends.

death of pet due to food

We recently purchased the Everpet brand dogfood for our dog, who up to that point was happy and healthy. We began to feed it to our dog and within just a few days he began to get very sick. He got so sick that the following morning when we woke up we found him dead with several spots of blood, as well as him bleeding from his mouth. The vet said, without doing expensive test to be fore sure, that bleeding from the mouth is typically caused by either an organ shutdown or by poisoning, but that she would lean towards poisoning seeing how the dog was healthy. We are currently in the process of having the food tested but are also contacting the company for some results in releaving the situation. It looks like their food is poisoning ALOT of people's pets and something needs to be done about it.
