  1. I have alrady lost two cats from tainted food. I am feeding my dogs Old Roy Dog Bisquits with peanut butter should I take it back to Walmart. Someone is going to pay if anything happens to my Labs. I have one who has hypothyroidism and I have noticed she is not as active as normal.
    I need an answer to this and I need it immediately.

  2. Hi,

    My dog had hyperparathyroidism…after his death, they said he had an enlarged heart, too.
    Calcium is an imbalancing calory with thyroid issues. Do check with your Veterinarian.

    If your dogs appear to hiccup….it’s a heart matter.
