    I was very disappointed to learn that Cesar wet dog food had been recalled in fall of 2016. Cesar dog food is my favorite both wet and dry. My small Maltese Suzie loves it. Since Suzie have been consuming Cesar dog foods, wet and sometime dry, she is much healthier and happier. I noticed she would not eat the previous brand and she was very sick and skinny. She would vomit and had no control over her bowels. I never attributed the symptoms to the previous brand until I changed my Maltese to Cesar Dog food. She fattened up and all her illnesses vanished. She love the tastes of Ceasar treats, wet food and if hungry she will eat the dry dog food. I hope that Cesar Dog Food continues to put out high quality food and delicious tasty treats. My little Maltese healed up from all her ailments after I switched her to Cesar! The packaging is very fancy. Stay classy Cesar! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4ea4ef247a640f7c56567cade8b46bad3ef459e1cc282281096170b5b7f1e08e.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/53a445df733794385e02c7753d8557ec14971e80d12e6b301df2b52d8ea5dc45.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6b765e825178776360f52759bac1f97d4f27b029f0c8f872e0da617cfedffe90.jpg

      She’s adorable!

      And do keep in mind that many brands of pet food have had recalls. Some of the recalls haven’t even been due to actual illness, but because the company caught a potential problem and issued a recall out of caution rather than as a reactionary action.

    I had bought my 2lb yorkie ceasars Duck when she was having problems with her teeth. 24 hrs after eating it, she couldn’t walk. She lost her vision and multiple other problems. She was taken to our vet immediately and they were puzzled by what was happening. And asked tons of questions as to what she had been eating. After talking to multiple ppl and hearing about the most recent report on the euthanasia found in ceasars I know now that this is what made my baby sick. She will prob be like this the rest of her life because it affected her brain. I am furious that they have been allowed to do this to our babies. She has to be hand fed and watered and watched 24/7. I blame ceasars totally for this

      Hi Melissa! Great name

      I don’t have any information on Cesar being recalled or found to have pentobarb in it. Have you seen it listed somewhere I may have missed?
