    Yea I agree with you there. It was a big bag of J.D Hills adult dog food, I'm about 80% positive it wasn't a prescription diet. How come vet's can't sell foods like Wellness core? I've always wondered that, do you know? Am I thread jacking?

      J/D is a prescription food...and J/D is amazing when used for skin or joints. I do not agree with some of the ingredients, but I have seen first hand it's 'magic' so to speak.

      Vets can sell whatever they want to. No, they do not get kickbacks or diamonds from Hill's, Purina, or from any other Prescription Diet company. In fact, there's a vet around here who sells Instinct (a really, really good food) and we are currently looking into selling Evo. I can't wait to finally get it. That's what I've got my creatures on, and I can't wait to get it with my employee discount.

        Oh I didn't know that. Explains why it's so expensive.

        That's awesome, your so lucky! I really thought they could only sell vet type food.

          Are you certain you didn't mistake ataxia for a seizure?

            Ataxia is actually a common symptom of stroke. The definition of ataxia is lack of control of body movements. To explain further, it is usually a result neurological dysfunction such as comes with stroke (or birth defect)

            Of course a cat with vestibular (inner ear) syndrome might have similar symptoms, but I know that's not what was being discussed here.

              Seisures in cats from Fancy Feast - same issue after 3 months feeding

              Hello Pet Lovers Community! Our smaller cat (Persian) started having seizures, losing hair in spots, and throwing up about 3-4 months after feeding Fancy Feast on a regular basis in 2015-16. Our much larger tabby did not develop issues until the end of the first year of feeding these products. Then he started throwing up more than twice a month and it was just the food. The seizures in the smaller cat got to be about 3 a week and we took her to a hospital vet who said to try a food elimination program to hopefully isolate the problem if food related before we'd have to resort to really expensive tests. Guess what? No more seizures after we stopped the Fancy Feast. Not one! Whatever is in there was really making them horribly sick. FYI - There can be all kinds of additives or chemicals in cat and dog foods because the FDA and pet food manufacturers do not totally regulate the quality and purity of what goes into pet food or on the label or where there source is from (china??). Marketing you see for popular brands tricks people into thinking their pet food is healthy and not tainted with things that are bad for cats (like starches, grains, gluten, propylene glychol, any kind of corn, any kind of meal, etc.). Many of these INGREDIENTS are full of starch additives to make the food cheaper but have no place in a regular cat or dog diet -- they are not built to process grains and starches which are heavily sprayed with chemicals by growers. Cats and dogs systems are built to handle meat diets with a small portion of greens (nothing sprayed with chemicals like corn, potato, sweet potato, grains, etc.). PLEASE look into the pet food industry scams and you'll see that there are NO ETHICAL pet food suppliers especially if it is processed dry food. Dry food pellets cause most of the problems with cats fed exclusively on dry food - diabetes from becoming overweight, kidney disease, etc. What they put in the dry foods is even worse than in wet canned foods. Don't take my word for it - do your own investigation and check out reviews for each and every pet food out there before feeding it to your family pet.

              Here's what I am replying to:

From my recent experience, it has been brought to my attention that sodium nitrites in cat food cause seizures in elderly cats, and dogs. I have written in before with this message. My cat had seizures for 2 1/2 yrs before I took her off fancy feast which has sodium nitrites. I put her on Pro Plan. PURINA MAKES FANCY FEAST AND PRO PLAN! Isnt it interesting that fancy feast with the dangerous chemicals can be purchased by the masses at the grocery store where most people buy their pet food. It apparently is cheaper to make. While Pro Plan which costs more and is only available at specialty pet stores does not contain sodium nitrites. HMMMMM....do you think Purina might know a little something about this chemical!!!!
