I used 4Health for like two years and LOVED it (Both Lamb n Rice small bites but mostly Large Breed/Chicken). It worked great for all three of my dogs and was cost effective for the quality of the food. It was also easy to get at any tractor supply store in the nation. I did not know at the time that it was manufactured by the Diamond corporation (including at the Columbia, SC plant) which has a shady track record at best. While I can’t prove it, I did have a bag containing the dates of the salmonella recall and it nearly killed my young healthy large breed service dog. He was touch and go for three weeks (Time I was without a medical alert dog) and I spent more than 2,000 dollars and countless vet visits getting him better, I’m beyond grateful I was able to save him and he’s still able to work. He can now only eat prescription dog food and will probably be on it for the rest of his life. Be aware of who produces the four and five star foods and that particular company’s tract record for quality control.

4Health Dog Food receives the Advisor’s second-highest tier rating of 4 stars.

I switched from Wellness to this food, which was a HUGE Mistake! My dog who had never refused a meal in his life, became a picky eater, often refusing to eat. He began scratching constantly. After trying bathing, anti-itch meds and so forth we switched back to Wellness. My dog immediatly went back to his old self, happy to dive into his food at feeding time. And the scratching ceased. Won’t ever buy 4-Health again, no matter what the reviews say. Bad stuff in my opinion.
