Weekly News

Greetings! In recall news, another pet product has been recalled, this time manufactured by Mars Foods and there is news that the FDA recently blocked more than 100 Nutro pet food products from entering the United States.

In other news, the National Advertising Division of the BBB is taking Iams to task for unproven claims regarding veterinary recommendations. Then there is the story of a tarantula owning New Yorker showing up at the SPCA to turn over his angry 'pet'.

Our video of the week is actually a website called "I Do Tricks". Visit it and you'll be asking yourself, "How do they do that?"

Enjoy and have a great week!

FDA

Another pet product has been recalled over contamination fears

Is it just coincidence or what?

Last week we reported that Mars Food just purchased a pet food manufacturing plant from Menu Foods, infamous for the major manufacturer of contaminated pet food. This week there is word that Mars has recalled select five pound bags of Krasdale Gravy dry dog food sold in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. The pet food is being recalled because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

  • Help with peeing cat

    My daughter has a 8 year old cat that has started peeing in the house. She has been doing this for about 4 years now and nothing seems to keep her from peeing everywhere. Our last resort is to get rid of the cat which is so difficult for my daughter but her new condo is smelling like her old apartment and she can't take it any more. Can you give us any help with this? I think we are going to have to removed the carpet and seal the subfloor before replacing the carpet we need to get the cat to stop peeing on the floor.

  • Limping dog, nothing shows on x-rays

    Approximately 6 weeks ago my Black Lab started limping. For the first 1 ˝ weeks I gave Tillie Rimadyal. The last (3) weeks she has been Predizone 20 mg. Neither of these drugs have resolved her limp. If anything it has gotten worse. My VET ran x-rays. The x-rays did not show anything. My Vet Doc then gave me the Predizone and said it could be early arthritis. Since none of these (2) meds have worked and I now know that this can cause liver damage, what should I do?

    Thanks for your concern with this.

Thanks!"
