    Just found bugs in the Wellness large breed dog food again. We’re changing brands. I’ve also called their 800# and it’s been blamed on all kinds of things….and they sent me a $5 coupon? That’s BS. Pay for the bag of food for the inconvenience!!! they even said a little more protein couldn’t hurt your dog. These bugs have gotten into my human food as a result of bringing the Wellness food into my home. So, I thought I’d give them a second chance, I’m sorry I did. I’m not in the process of switching my two Golden Retrievers to Innova instead.
