I went to the vet today for an allergy check-up on Annie from 2 weeks ago. Of course, the conversation turned to pet food. He is aware that I have been cooking for Annie for over a month because of her allergies. He said that he is more concerned about the pollen in the air than her food allergies right now and that Solid Gold is fine and if her food allergies flair up to switch her to Solid Gold Millenium (with Bison instead of lamb). So I asked him, "What do you think?" My very conservative, politically right vet said said that the veterinarians in the office were discussing how ridiculous some of the claims were. He said that liver failure and renal disease has been the biggest killer of pets since 1972. So it is hard to determine how many more animals died this year than in previous years from this problem. Rat poison causes blood to clot so they don't believe that claim. Anti-freeze also has special properties. The Wheat Gluten or another ingredient is suspect because if "someone" wanted to poison a lot of animals right away, it could be contaminated from outside the U.S. or Canada and shipped here. :oOMG, I couldn't believe he said that! The vets are also stumped and aren't buying into all the rehtoric coming out of the pet food companies.

I am going to continue to cook for Annie and the cats most of the time and supplement with Solid Gold, when needed.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) was informed today, April 16, 2007, that Natural Balance Pet Foods has received consumer complaints regarding the Venison & Brown Rice Dry Dog Food, and Venison & Green Pea Dry Cat Foods. The company does not know the cause of the problems, but has received reports of animals vomiting and experiencing kidney problems. Although the company is stating that the problems seem to be focused on one particular lot, as a precautionary measure, the company is pulling all dates of Venison & Brown Rice Dry Dog Food and Venison & Green Pea Dry Cat Food from the shelves. The company is advising consumers to discontinue feeding all Venison and Brown Rice Dry Dog Food, and Venison and Green Pea Dry Cat Food.

The FDA is working closely with Natural Balance and is actively investigating this problem. There is no indication at this time whether this is related to the ongoing pet food recalls.

I heard another horror story about an indoor cat dying within a week from symptoms of kidney shutdown but the owner couldn't afford all the tests at the vet so she took the cat to the Humane Society to euthanize it to put it out of its pain for a $45 donation. This was a healthy 10 yr old cat gone seriously downhill in 1 week! Makes me wonder about the acetominiphen problem because it happen to Walter so fast! Here is the latest update list from the ASPCA-Remember this is in addition to the other lists that are posted.

PET FOOD RECALL UPDATE: STAY ALERT TO NEW DEVELOPMENTS
With reports that acetaminophen has been found in brands of cat and dog food not included on the Menu Foods recall list, the ASPCA is urging pet parents to stay vigilant to signs of illness in their pets as large doses of acetaminophen can be extremely toxic.


Pet Food Recall List LAST UPDATED: 6/07/07 3:06pm ET

In its continuing efforts to keep the public and concerned pet parents up to date on developments in the pet food recall crisis, the ASPCA has created a list of pet foods recalled due to contamination to date, beginning with the nationwide Menu Foods, Inc., recall on March 16. Please note the following:

- Click on the brand names to find out which products have been recalled.

- Not all foods on this list are part of the Menu Foods and other related recalls. Some foods have been recalled due to other contamination, e.g. salmonella. PLEASE READ THE REASON FOR RECALL CAREFULLY.

- New products may be recalled by the U. S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) or manufacturers at any time, so please check this page frequently for updated information. Please note that the recalled items are listed alphabetically by brand, not in chronological order. Updated information is posted alongside the brand name, and immediate updates are called out in bold.

- The ASPCA is doing its best to keep this list updated, as far as possible, in real time and as new recalls are made public. However, technical and other issues may sometimes result in a delay, so if you have immediate concerns, please call your pet food manufacturer directly. If your pet shows any sign of illness, please contact your veterinarian IMMEDIATELY.

IN ADDITION, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT INFORMATION BEFORE USING THIS LIST
Disclaimer: THIS DOCUMENT IS FOR REFERENCE PURPOSES ONLY. The ASPCA does not have independent verification of the information set forth below, as this list has been compiled based on sources that are publicly available, i.e., on Menu Foods, FDA and several pet food manufacturer� websites.
