There is news about the popular Gentle Leader Headcollars. The collars sold from August, 2011 through this May 10, 2012 may have a defect in the quick-release neck strap buckle. The defect causes an unintended release.

For more info, click here for Premier Pet's site where they say they "take this matter seriously and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your cooperation." At Gentle Leader Headcollars.

In our wild-west, deregulated economy, it is no surprise these days when products and services don't perform as advertised.
Pet owners are advised, and even harassed, to brush their pet's teeth, but who is to know what tools do an effective job?
Meaningless Plaque Promises | NewsforJax.com says consumers have to rely on themselves.
They recommend checking the package or container for the Veterinary Oral Health Council Seal (VOHC).
The VOHC authorizes the use of the VOHC Registered Seal on products intended to help retard plaque and tartar on the teeth of animals.
Click the link for the approved dental products. No surprise that Greenies are on the list.
