Dog Food Ol Roy

The second ingredient is meat and bone meal, a dry “rendered product from mammal tissues, including bone, exclusive of any added blood, hair, hoof, horn, hide trimmings, manure, stomach and rumen contents”.

Because we’re unable to locate a company operated website that offers complete product information, we’re compelled to rely on photos collected by volunteers at various retail locations.

First, we’re always disappointed to find artificial coloring in any pet food. That’s because coloring is used to make the product more appealing to humans — not your dog. After all, do you really think your dog cares what color his kibble is?

Next, we find no mention of probiotics, friendly bacteria applied to the surface of the kibble after processing to help with digestion.

Since there’s no mention of a specific animal, this item could come from just about anywhere: salvaged roadkill, spoiled supermarket meat… even dead, diseased or dying cattle.

    This is the worst dry dog food you can get. Would you want to eat food that has zero nutritional value and does more harm than good? If not, why feed your dog this stuff? It has animal byproducts and is comparable to feeding your dog junk food. We just rescued a dog that had been fed Ol Roy. Even the animal control officer said how bad it is. She loves the food that we give her and always leaves a clean bowl. There are plenty of dry dog foods out there that are way better. Just do your research. Your dog deserves better.

    We been buying the 24pk of canned food for 2 years now, our 3 small dogs love it..lately I been seeing black jelly like material in the cans of chicken and rice, I dont know what it is, has anyone else seen this?

    I have two old small dogs, one is 17 years old and one is 19 years old, one has no teeth, and I love Ol Roy pouches. It is easy for them to eat and they gobble it up. They love it. I lost my job because of the pandemic of 11 years, so I am thankful that Ol Roy always has good quality and great prices. And before they had a hard time chewing until I bought Ol Roy pouch food. Now they eat 3 bags each at a time. They love it! Thanks.

    My 4 year old Australian shepherd/lab mix, Max, had been eating the food for around a week when he had a seizure. He ate his breakfast and around 15 minutes later he was foaming at the mouth and bleeding from his nose he was shaking and crying. Im more than positive the dog food caused it.

    Ol Roy took my best friend of 8 years from me! On 10/9/21 my husband & I went grocery shopping & as usual we bought Kash’s dog food but Walmart was out of his “normal” dog food. I’m assuming due to the shortage. So we bought Ol Roy dry dog food for the first time. It was a Saturday evening when we bought it & by Wednesday I noticed Kash had stopped eating. My dog had a big appetite so I knew something was off when he didn’t eat. He became fatigue & was laying around a lot more than normal. Then he started having bloody diarrhea & vomiting & walking like he was drunk, his eyes were very red. He became very weak & couldn’t stand. He then passed away a few days later.

    I remembered we had switched his dog food to Ol Roy so I looked online & found so many more stories of dogs getting severely sick or dying! I’m so heartbroken that this happened & is still happening. I don’t understand how this dog food is still being sold after so many dogs have become sick & died because of this poison! That’s exactly what it is is poison! It needs to be taken off the shelves! Someone has to stand up for our furry friends! This needs to stop! I’m sharing my story in hopes of helping and saving other dogs!

    I have never fed my 3 dogs Ol Roys food before but decided to give it a try one time when I didnt feel up to going to the store that sells the brand of food I normally use. I really wish I hadnt been so lazy. I mixed some of their old food with the new Ol Roys dry food, topping their meal off with some Ol Roys canned food for a little gravy mix. My dogs are little guys so I am always very good about not overfeeding them. Imagine my surprise when one of them started getting very bloated and constipated right away, another one became very sleepy and quit eating her food, and the third dog began vomiting after finishing his meal. This all happened after one small meal, which I thought at first could just be related to the change in the new food.

    However, with each meal throughout the week, the dogs would all get sick. I knew it was this brand of food because they had been fine before I made the change, and their sickness came on so suddenly after eating the first meal. We pulled them off the food, threw it away, and started them back on the food that worked well for them before. I never should have changed their food, and I never should have been lazy and gone with Ol Roy. Its a dangerous product that should not be on the market. PLEASE DONT BUY THIS FOOD OR ANYTHING RELATED TO THIS BRAND…IT WILL HARM YOUR PET. It messed my dogs systems up so bad they still arent back to normal.

    After reading these reviews on Ol Roy dog food, I am very concerned. My chiweenie started eating this food and after a case, has become very ill. We took him to the vet and he now has liver failure and heart failure. He was vomiting and brought him into the vet and we are convinced that this fog food is what hot him very ill. There is no hope for him and have to make the difficult decision to have to put him down, so he will stop suffering. Before eating this dog food, he was healthy and happy. Our Chiweenie has been with our family for 13 years, our whole family is devastated.

    I had just adopted a German Shepherd who is an aggressive chewer and loves treats. I got these dog treats as an afternoon treat before dinner. He literally threw up 3 times within minutes of finishing it. Knew it was the treat cause the only other thing hes eaten all day was a milk bone treat hes been eating all week. I was really hoping this would be a good treat for him as it wasnt too expensive but no. Will never get any Ol Roy dog food again. They must have done something different cause I never had this problem 8 years ago with my other dogs.

    We bought a bag of Ol Roy dry dog food for our dogs. Our Rottweiler ate some of it and was very sleepy. I did not realise that it could be the food. Our Pekingese was less lucky. We took her to the vet as she became very ill after consuming the Ol Roy food. She was vomiting and blood started coming out with her very runny stool. The Vet told us that it seemed as though she had been poisoned. They could not pull her through. We had to try and trace what could have poisoned her or made her ill. When I mentioned we changed their food to Ol Roy our Vet was very concerned. He said that we should stop giving it immediately. Our Rottweiler luckily survived but reading all the reviews here I am certain it was the Ol Roy food that made our dogs sick and was responsible for the death of our Pekingese.

    We noticed our pit bull was throwing up immediately after eating this brand of food. We purchased a new brand right away however as I was dumping the 50 pound bag of food, I found a dead mouse, explains why he was getting sick.
