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.

I would like to know if there are any natural alternatives. Her liver enzymes are elevated and I do not want to put her into renal failure. If she is to live I want her to have quality rather than miserable quantity.
