Weekly News

Greetings. Some recall news about low levels of acetaminophen found in pet food by ExpertTox labs.

In other news there is a report that microchip implants may be tied to cancerous tumors in rats, and a report that Canine Rabies has disappeared from the US

Our weird pet news is of pictures of the Hairless Sphynx cat, one of the most unusual felines we've ever seen

Our video of the week is of Jessica the Hippo. Charlene Boyd sent us this video and we all fell in love with Jessica, watching as she goes about her daily life endearing herself to all who meet her.

As always, have a great week!

CANIDAE Denies Reports of Painkiller in its Pet Food

Consumer Affairs has consistently been on the story of ExpertTox, a Texas testing lab that discovered acetaminophen in different samples of pet food, most recently releasing a report on Sept. 4, 2007, after the owner of two cats who died paid the lab to test samples of the food he was feeding his cats. Even after the lab reports were turned over to the FDA, not much was done with the information and we suspect that both the FDA and the manufacturers hoped the story would simply go away. However, more pet owners with pets who have suffered ill effects and/or died have come forward to have ExpertTox test other pet foods and one of them has even filed a lawsuit to force the FDA to do further testing on tainted food.

Microchip Implants Linked to Animal Tumors

When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved implanting microchips in humans, the manufacturer said it would save lives, letting doctors scan the tiny transponders to access patients' medical records almost instantly. The FDA found "reasonable assurance" the device was safe, and a sub-agency even called it one of 2005's top "innovative technologies."

But neither the company nor the regulators publicly mentioned this: A series of veterinary and toxicology studies, dating to the mid-1990s, stated that chip implants had "induced" malignant tumors in some lab mice and rats.

Canine rabies virus has 'disappeared' from the U.S.

Federal health experts declared a small victory against a fatal and untreatable virus on Friday, saying canine rabies has disappeared from the United States.

While dogs may still become infected from raccoons, skunks or bats, they will not catch dog-specific rabies from another dog, the Atlanta-based U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.
