Does your dog eat Diamond Brand food? Please, please, please leave a comment below and share this article on Facebook. Please let me know what brand of Diamond food your dog eats and where you purchased the food. Also, let me know what symptoms, if any, your dog has had. The more people who share, the more patterns we can see. Hopefully we can prevent dogs from getting sick!
