My dog nearly died last week after eating this Baxters food for the first time. He had severe diarrhoea and bleeding, he became so unwell he was unable to stand or walk. After a visit to the vet and being given antibiotics plus pain relief and a strict diet he is now making a slow recovery. This should not be sold after all the reports of healthy dogs dying. I was certain my dog was not going to survive he was so sick.

My pet became very lethargic and vomiting after eating Baxters wet food. After a couple of days we took her to the vet , came good next day after a nausia tablet from the vet. She is an 11 year old lab in great health previously with excellent bloodwork results. Younger lab of 4 had no issues but we only bought the 2 cans to try. I seem to have no problem with the Baxters dry munchies I give the dogs when training or on walks. We actually did try the Baxters wet food some time ago with 2 other labs we had and they would not eat it at all!

I nearly lost my old dog feeding him Baxters wet dog food. He was walking like he was drunk, lethargic, breathing funny, panting and his eyes were glassy. I pumped him full of concentrated vitamin in water for 2 days. By the third he was eating a bit of cat food. A week later he was back to his normal self thank goodness. I’m chucking the lot and I’ve put him on a different diet.

My boy became so sick after having Baxter’s canned food. I always made his food fresh but I cheated and stupidly bought some canned food for while I was in hospital giving birth. He went into liver failure and his body shut down, passing away a week and a half later.

My dog was violently ill after eating Baxter’s. Also after eating Nature’s Gift. I’m lucky he didn’t digest either. Feel profoundly sad for those who have lost their pets due to this issue. I lost 2 cats to a food related illness. So tragic.

I have two dogs in intensive care at the vets, one with liver failure from eating this brand of pet food. I purchased it as a quick feed option during Christmas – biggest mistake of my life and I may have to say good by to my two best friends due to feeding them something anyone would think was safe. The vet said it’s the preservatives they use in this brand and has heard and seen many cases for Baxters dogfood.


I wrote this after Christmas and since then I lost one baby a few weeks later and she also had liver failure, and today my other baby had to be put to sleep as he couldn’t fight anymore. I cant explain the pain I feel, or the horror and blame I carry with me for buying this dogfood thinking it was safe.

I just hope that people see this and even if you’ve been feeding this all their lives please stop, it’s just your dog is coping with the stuff that’s in it but will die early age or have many complications.
