General discussion / Is this safe to feed
« on: Jan 01, 2021, 10:51 »
Hi to all

My question is: Is it safe for a dog to consume feed with lead in it?

My answer would be "NO", but i'm no expert. So are there any food experts out there that know the safe levels of Pb micro milligrams per kg bodyweight relating to combustion by dogs as opposed to humans.

I have an 20 month old Lagotto Romagnolo bitch that I have always fed white label kibble and various brand frozen raw foods. However although she as been previously fed game meat from a few producers with no issues to note, with a brand I was recently recommended to try, I found lead shot remaining in the feed bowl following the dog consuming the pheasant mince.

On contacting the company concerned seeking assurances on product safety, they replied with the following:

 "We do state on our game products that’s this can happen however on a scale of how much we produce it is a rarity, most dogs will eat around it and leave it in the bowl I can only apologise for the inconvenience."

I know most answers would be, stop feeding her this product, but it is only in their game meats. Their range of other meats is really good.

 I'm just looking for facts about lead in animal food and possibilities of health issues from regular consumption.

Happy new year!
