RAW FOOD ALERT
As a survivor of Salmonella poisoning, I have a hard time understanding why anyone would feed their dog raw chicken or raw anything in meats, but if you do, you'll be interested in this latest alert about Raw Dog.
PET FOOD RECALL ALERT
Carnivore Meat Company of Green Bay, Wisconsin has recalled its Vital Essentials raw frozen dog food due to possible contamination from Listeria bacteria. Personally, I don't eat raw meat, and I won't feed it to my dogs, either. It's like playing Russian Roulette with their health. There's just too much deadly food contamination out there these days, and not only meat.
DOG FOOD ALERT!

Enhancer because it also has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria.
URGENT! DEATH BY PEANUT BUTTER
For dog lovers who use a spoonful of peanut butter to make the medicine
go down or let your dog lick out the empty peanut butter jar, like I do,
there is an urgent warning of danger to your dog! Some manufacturers
are adding the fake sweetener Xylitol to their product, which can be
deadly for dogs. Here's more information from I Heart Dogs.
ANOTHER PET FOOD ALERT!
More Salmonella-tainted dog food from Boulder brand has been recalled. This time it's chicken sprinkles on the food. If you're like I am, a Salmonella survivor who had dogs that were also sickened, you just avoid poultry altogether, especially in light of the recent incidents of extreme cruelty to the chickens at the Foster Farms plant in Fresno. Workers were caught horrifically abusing the birds. Apparently, you have to be a heartless bastard to work in a job like that, but the only sure way to stop these kinds of abuses is to stop eating chicken or feeding it to our dogs.
PET FOOD ALERT!
More trouble in the pet food industry. Nylabone Puppy Starter Kit Dog Chews have been recalled due to possible Salmonella contamination.
