The last few months we’ve been having a terrible time getting a steady supply of the two brands of dry dog food that we feed our Labrador Retriever puppy.
The first few months were ok, but by March one of the brands that we were feeding our dog with a sensitive tummy became unavailable for a while. It was Blue Buffalo Large Breed Puppy Chicken and Rice dog food. I guess the company was having trouble getting one of the ingredients for the dog food and it messed up their whole supply until June.
Luckily we were also feeding her another dog food – Nutro Natures Choice Large Breed puppy Lamb and brown rice dog food. However now whenever we go into get pet supplies we have trouble finding this particular brand.
Chris went to the pet store early this morning specifically to look for the two brands of dry dog food that we feed Midnight and they were out of the Nutro again! A Nutro rep happened to be in the store and she told him that they are having trouble getting a supply of lamb for the food. I guess they get their lamb from New Zealand and there’s been a drought there that’s affect the livestock.
Naturally she suggested that we switch to one of their other products, but as I said earlier our dog has a very sensitive stomach so I really don’t want to start switching her food every time I need to buy her a new bag of food. I said it that way because I suspect that if we switch to one of their other products or even another brand that we’ll run into supply problems again. That seems to be our luck lately.
Are any of you having trouble getting certain brands of food for your dog? Or is it just us having terrible luck picking a company that can keep our dog supplied in healthy food?
