    Exclamation ATTENTION Dog and Cat owners - food recall

    A large manufacturer of pet foods has issued a recall on many lines of product. See here for details - http://www.menufoods.com/recall/


    Some reported cases of dog deaths a few days after ingesting, as a result of kidney failure. Menu Foods blame a batch of bad wheat gluten.

    One of the few times I'm glad I pay $65 a bag for food. It's not on their list.

    I believe most of the food that was in question is the "meat cuts and gravy" wet food type.

    I don't buy any food with "wheat gluten" in it anyway, many dogs have sensitivity to it, mine included.
    Back in BC, yay!!!

    Mine too, Janet, that's why I have to buy the expensive stuff. It's called First Choice and sells at Petcetera for $57 a bag plus tax. Ouch. The dog eats better than me, I swear.

    My dog has sensitivity to poultry and grains. I've tried all the super premium foods that are moderate protein and lower calcium for large breed puppies, because she has a touch of pano in her front left leg. Right now I'm feeding "Go Natural" salmon and oat, and it seems to be working.

    IMO, a premium food that does not incorporate grains/grain derivatives like wheat gluten (I think they are fillers) costs more to buy but you feed less and clean up less, and have a more healthy pet.

    Wheat and beef fat gave my old Lhasa Apso terrible skin troubles...poor guy scratched like crazy until a vet pointed it out.

    The Innova brand, which I buy at Tisol, is pretty good also and just as expensive.

    What's the price of unconditional love? You gotta love dogs!

    That's what I started my dog on as a pup, but it was giving him really dry skin.

    Now he gets California Natural (from Tisol) which he absolutely loves! Although his last bag came with a free can of the wet food... and ever since he had a taste, he hasn't seemed as interested in his food without it.
    In the whole wide world, there's no magic place... so you might as well rise. Put on your bravest face.

    I try not to eat processed food myself and I have stopped feeding it to my dog.
    If your cooking something, it is not much trouble to make a little extra for your dog.

    California Natural is from same manufacturer, just a different line. They've got this comparison wizard to compare their products against others http://www.naturapet.com/display.php?d=comp-wiz

    My bitch used to eat Innova and California Natural - both really high quality food, but too rich for her digestive system. I tried a brand called Eagle, but that caused her skin to break out in hives. Turns out Amstaffs (and most other dogs) are allergic to corn and soy products. You really have to read the ingredients and spend the money on good food, it's much cheaper than vet bills and poor health in the long run.

    She has been doing really well on Canidae Lamb and rice - lots of protein per serving. http://www.tisol.ca/content/pet_food...anidae_felidae The vet is really amazed how healthy she is after delivering 9 puppies.
