Aye aye aye what a bungle. I had B stop at the pet store last night and call me from there when he found the dog food. I told him “Hills Science Diet, lamb and rice, large breed”. I had him check and double check. He brought it home and poured it into the Vittles Vault and I felt the kibble and it was huge. I still had the stuff I took from GDB so I didn’t feed Jayden any of the new stuff. I called graduate services today and he said it’s “adult” not “large breed” and I want the “small bites”. Apparently another student called with a similar question. So I don’t know if I was given the wrong information or if my exausted spoon lacking brain misheard. I think it was actually the latter.
So I called Kevin and he came over and took a few of the kibble and wrote down “Hills Science Diet lamb and rice small bites adult”. and actually got a person at the store to make sure it was right. Then he got to the register and asked again, holding out the sample kibble. They said no that’ bag is large bites. So he went back and got the small bites and brought it back and they are tiny. I had been discussing the issue on my email list, and the small bites are the same formula as the large bites so it’s fine, and measuring will be the same.
So now that I think about it, they could have said “Hills Science Diet, lamb and rice, adult, large bites” and I might have heard “Hills Science Diet, adult, large breed”. I’ll never know. So now I have these wee little kibble in the right formula. I think in a few days I’ll call back and ask if it was in fact the large bites we used in class. Hmmm but the store clerk looked at the sample kibble and said small bites. Ugh. I don’t know.
I know for the puppy raisers, they are feeding Purina Pro Plan, but for the dogs now in class, they are eating Hills. I’m keeping him on the same diet until I have reason to switch, so I’m not asking for a food debate since those happen every few weeks on the list hahaha!!
Just wanted to write the humor in the food snafu. Sheesh. Oh and I brought the nasty weather from California. Cold windy and rainy today. Joy. There sure was no going out this afternoon.
