There have not been any reports of problems associated with feeding Eukanuba. The premium veterinary diets are formulated using hiugh digestible ingredients which means that the animals requirements are met by a small amount of food. Also, because it is more digestible there is less to clean up later. So, if your Mom's dog is being fed the same volume of Eukanuba as what she was being fed Vets Choice she will be getting more then she needs and will explain the weight increase.

Yes it is best to have her checked out by your vet. Because we don't yet know how long it will take for all affected dogs to present with kidney problems, it would be advisable to have precuationary blood tests done. Please take the Vets Choice food bag along if you still have it as they can then check the batch number.
