Weekly News

Greetings! This week our recall news deals with how Menu Foods is faring 6 months after the pet food recall first made headlines. Despite statements from the company that they didn't expect the recall to significantly affect them, time has shown the marketplace is not very forgiving to a company that has become synonomous with "tainted pet food".

Next is an article about how traditional Chinese medicine is being used to help pets. We know that many of our readers are already familiar with how "complimentary" or "alternative" methods are being integrated into more and more veterinary practices and our feeling is just as there are different approaches to treating human ills, so it is with our pet's health too. So, while we are not advocating any particular type of pet treatment, we are urging each pet owner to work with their pet's health pros to find the right combination of health procedures to ensure that their pets enjoy a wonderful and healthful life. Sometimes just one health pro is all that is needed to achieve this and other times a combination of health professionals working together does the trick. As always, VetLocator.com has the largest directories of veterinarians and pet health pros online, so if you need help finding someone you know where to look.

Our office has two new residents, brother and sister cats Kewpie and Nemo. Having normally had dogs around I'm really delighted at how cunning and clever cats can be. And did I mention entertaining? We should charge admission :) Anyway, one thing I've discovered about cats is they have a mind of their own and getting them to see things your way can be somewhat frustrating at times. That is why, when I came across our next article "Taking cats to the vet can be a hassle, but it doesn't have to be" by Dr. Pamela Cuevas, it seemed like a good thing to read and to share with you.

You'll enjoy our video for the week, "The Amazing Hug". You just can't deny the human-animal connection when you watch it.

As always, have a great week!

Menu Foods fortunes change after Pet Food Recall

In the six months since Menu Foods Income Fund announced its recall of melamine-tainted pet food, the company's fortunes have changed drastically. The company has lost clients and now faces huge financial losses due to the cost of the recall, a drop in sales, and contract cancellations. Consumers whose pets became ill or died after eating tainted pet food are filing lawsuits against Menu Foods alleging the company did not do enough to protect their pets.

Traditional Chinese medicine used to aid pets

Kobi the yellow lab was getting his fifth treatment for a painful bone growth at the end of his spine. His thick tail wagged, then slowed, as a dozen acupuncture needles were tapped along his spine. About 45 minutes later, he was prancing out of the room, tail wagging.

Veterinary acupuncture and chiropractic treatment isn't mainstream, but it's not as rare as it used to be. This is an article about Dr. Daniel King, an Illinois veterinarian that blends traditional and alternative methods when treating his patients. As we mentioned earlier, finding the right pet pro for your pet is one of the most important things you can do.

The Times News

Taking cats to the vet can be a hassle, but it doesn't have to be

Did you know that only 10 percent of all cats get regular veterinary care? Although cats are the most popular pets in the United States, they get significantly less veterinary care than their canine counterparts.

Though cats need regular veterinary care, getting them to their appointments can sometimes be a challenge. Part of the reason cats see their vets less often may have to do with the fact that transporting them can be such a stress for both cat and owner.

5 Legged Cat Dies

Recently a kitten was born, a cute tuxedo kitten that had 5 legs. They named the kitten Pookey-Doo and it lived at the Westminster Pet Sanctuary in Ottawa. The sanctuary immediately began raising the money necessary to help the 8 week old kitten live a normal life. Many people donated money for the cause. They'd hoped to save Pookey-Doo, but the kitten perished before it could undergo surgery.
