Our lead story this week is a shocking one (as you can see below). It is followed by news that Menu Foods' bank of attorneys have been harassing pet owners who are suing the company and have a court order telling them to stop. Next is news that the FDA has been ordered to give a report on the pet food scandal, but they are slow in responding. Our last story is about an 11 year old boy who shot an enormous wild boar. The picture is unbelievable!

Our video this week is a very clever and lively montage of all sorts of animals dancing to the song 'Lady Marmalade".

Ex-China Drug Regulator to Be Executed

This headline points out the major difference between China and the US in handling corruption in the government. China's former top drug regulator was sentenced to death Tuesday for taking bribes to approve untested medicines, as the country's main quality control agency announced its first recall system targeting unsafe food products.

  • CAT WITH DIARRHEA I have an 8 year old cat that has diarrhea and is now starting to vomit. I've been battling the diarrhea for months with antibiotics. It seems to get better for awhile but keeps coming back. She still maintains a healthy weight and appetite. I don't know if it is IBD or maybe allergies. I have ordered organic/natural food but won't receive it until Monday. I would like to find something natural/herbal to treat her condition. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

  • 14 YEAR OLD DOG HAS TROUBLE URINATING My 14 yr old dog is having trouble urinating. The Vet put her on Amoxi 250mg caps - 1 capsule orally every 12 hours with food. Is there anything that I could give her naturally. The Vet has suggested surgery but at this age, I would rather find a natural solution if possible.

  • DIABETIC CAT, WANT TO ELIMINATE NEED FOR INSULIN THROUGH DIET: My cat has diabetes and has just switched to PZI Vet Insulin. Early this year I switched him to Wellness Brand grain-free wet and dry food. Can a diet such as this eliminate his need for insulin?

  • DOES MY DOG NEED RABIES VACCINATIONS?: My dog is requiring a rabies shot to get his license renewed. Is there any way to get around this requirement? I am opposed to vaccinations and if there is a way to have him licensed without giving him the shot, I'd like to know. - Thanks.

  • YORKSHIRE WITH PANCREATITIS. NEED HELP: My 11 year old Yorkshire terrier was diagnosed with pancreatitis in Florida-that vet did blood tests-on fluids for 2 days in hospital-vet up here did not do follow up blood tests as Fla vet recommended. Her levels were over 6000 when should have been in the hundreds-hair looks bad-she is on Purina OM canned and dry-no fatty foods-anything else I can do to help her-she acts ok.

  • FOOD ALLERGY, WANT HOLISTIC SOLUTION: My Westhighland Terrier, 6 in September, has since day one food allergies that include proteins, wheat, flour, pretty much everything. She has had major intestinal upsets for the last 2 weeks but they were under control in combination w/a homemade diet consisting of vitamin supplements, cottage cheese, pumpkin, and brown rice along w/ veterinarian prescribed drugs being Clidinium/CDP 1 every other day or as needed, Lixotonic 1/2 ml orally once daily and Farnotidine that only had to be used once every week and 1/2 have now everyday . It is the only way she will eat because otherwise she is in severe pain. I can hear her stomach and feel it hard and bloated as well. My vet has run out of answers and obviously was able to give only a temporary fix to this long-time problem. My dog, when not plagued with this pain is happy and otherwise healthy. I need another alternative to safe guard and assure my dog a happy and pain free existence if at all possible. Do you have any suggestions. I would appreciate more than words could say!!

  • CAT PROBLEMS WITH HOME COOKED FOOD: I have switched my cats over to a homemade diet. The kitten with no problem. The older cat, though, has been on commercial food for far too long and is having problems, which I am to understand is a matter of detox.

    However, she is pretty much not eating at all, not even her commercial food and ESPECIALLY if I mix anything. When she does eat she throws it right back up. What is the best way or thing I can do to help her through this?

    Would I need to take her to a holistic vet or is there something I can do for her here? She's VERY temperamental and is next to impossible to handle at the vet's. I am not sure her current vet would embrace a non-commercial diet.
