We all want our dogs to share our lives for many years. One of the best predictors of a long, happy canine life is the quality of care provided to the dog, such as great nutrition, not to mention protection from accidents.
There are other factors that come into play, particularly the dog’s breed. It seems that some breeds are programmed for long lives.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — August 10, 2015 — Burlington, WA — Northwest Farm Food Cooperative of Burlington, WA, is voluntarily recalling frozen raw Cat Food due to their potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
We have an important dog food recall going on right now.
Nature’s Variety has announced a NATIONWIDE recall of select lots of its Instinct Raw Chicken Formula for Dogs. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the recall was issued after
they conducted a routine sample test and determined that the products contained Salmonella bacteria.
While the US can certainly be described as a pet-loving nation, there is at least a slight bias toward dogs. In one survey by Public Policy Polling, 52 percent of respondents said they preferred dogs while only 21 percent said they preferred cats (another 27 percent couldn’t decide).
As dog owners, we have a huge responsibility. Just like little babies, our furry friends are totally reliant and trusting in us. Their health largely depends on our ability to make the best dog food choices. Choosing the right food for your pet can be very confusing.
RECALLS – of which there are three types – are actions taken by a firm to remove a product from the market. Recalls may be conducted on a firm's own initiative, by FDA request, or by FDA order under statutory authority.
Television commercials and magazine advertisements for pet food would have us believe that the meats, grains, and fats used in these foods could grace our dining tables. Chicken, beef, lamb, whole grains, and quality fats are supposedly the composition of dog and cat food.
Get to your vet immediately if your dog gets his paws on this - even if he shows no symptoms. He might seem completely normal for 4 to 5 hours after the fact, but this food could potentially kill him. Not all survive even with immediate care.
Maybe you are expecting to find here some brands that you have read in other reviews, but this is not the case. The best cat food is not necessarily the winner of the year award or the most expensive brand.
