I found this out a week ago and literally had a meltdown. I have a dog with a history of pancreatitis who is also allergic to chicken (and we stay away from turkey since it’s so close) she was SO sick for years of her life until we found Royal Canin gastrointestinal pork wet food and she’s been eating it for 5 years now. I had been receiving my chewy orders like clockwork with a minor blip when Covid first hit and everyone was stocking up. I kept an extra case on hand but everything went back to normal. I got the same email that it was out of stock so I call my vet since they’re my backup.
They initially laughed at me said it’s been an issue for months so the office is now carrying Hills lets switch to that…except that’s made with chicken. So once the vet and office staff realized that there is literally NO commercially made food that my dog could eat safely they apologized. The backup plan was to go to home cooked food but they did a bunch of digging online and found a vet only pharmacy that had it in stock and I was able to order 6 months worth and it’s on the fedex truck being delivered today. I posted a desperate plea on fb and couldn’t find any online except for crazy jacked up prices on ebay which is just wrong.
My other dog was on the dry version which has chicken but is still low fat because if my special pup got a piece of her normal dog food kibble it made her sick because of the fat. I’ve switched that dog to Hills i/d low fat just so that I only have one form of food to panic over. I’m going to continue to try and order it monthly and just keep a running stash of 5-6 months worth so that hopefully during that time if it’s not in stock it’ll become available again.
