First meal on hills WD he would not eat…wet or dry.

My tiny Min Pin, who is diabetic, had been on Hills W/D prescription food for over a year. In July of 2015, the bag I purchased ($25 for 8 lbs.) looked different and was a bit more expensive. I was told that a flavor enhancer had been added but that the food was basically the same. After using the rest of the original food, I opened the new formula food. It smelled bad, but my dog ate it, as he was also getting Hills wet food with it. He was not enthusiastic about eating after that first feeding. Within two days, he became very ill. His belly was distended and his anal sphincter was swollen to ten times the normal size. He couldn't poop and was obviously in extreme distress and very ill.

My vet recommended Hills WD , happy dog and owner

My dog has been on the hills prescription WD diet for a few years now with great success but now the last two bags something is not right. My dog has gotten extremely sick and has been back and forth to the vet. She has thrown up, had bloody diarria, lost weight, lathargic, and now won’t even eat. The vet said she is having a severe allergetic reaction to something. I think it is in the food. My other dogs won’t even eat her food. I wonder if hills used the bad corn from Iowa or Indiana that had the nitro in it that didn’t grow last year. Something has changed. Is anyone else having issues? I asked that the food be tested but was informed that it was not because it is always tested before being sent out.
