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.

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.

DOGS OF WWI

They've always been by our side, through thick and thin, in war and peace.  Here are some poignant photos of the dogs of World War I doing what dogs do best, providing love, devotion, service, companionship. 

ALABAMA ROT KILLS DOGS IN BRITAIN

An outbreak of Alabama Rot has killed over 50 dogs in Great Britain, according to the Daily Mail.  The disease attacks the blood vessels and kidneys.  The first sign of illness is lesions that appear on your dog's paws.

BENEFUL PET FOOD POISONINGS!


If you are feeding your dog Purina brand Beneful dog food, STOP!   Thousands of dogs have died after eating it.  Dogs were sickened and vomiting, and some have been found dead.  I'm sure the owners had no clue what was wrong, as was the case when two of my dogs were sickened years ago by Salmonella-tainted Waggin' Train chicken jerky.

Since the dogs eating Beneful were ingesting kibble that contained poisons like antifreeze, it's no wonder they were sickened.  Antifreeze?!!!  If you love your dog, don't feed him/her Purina brand.  Since the greedy Nestle corporation took over Purina, it's not safe to feed to your pets.  I personally avoid grocery store brands of pet food.  The quality of feed is too often inferior, or in this case, deadly.
