Place 1-2 tsp of dried catnip flowers and leaves in a teacup and pour a cup of hot, not boiling water, and cover.

PetScoop -- Ten Tips To Help Pick the Best Dog Food


What is the best dog food for your dog? That depends, as each animal is an individual. You have to pay attention to your dog's fur, skin and overall health and experiment with different foods and ingredients to find out what works best.

  • Dry dog food is the most economical.
  • Dogs have food allergies, pay attention and adjust as necessary.
  • The ingredient list on food bags matters-learn what to look for.< Click above graphic for common pet food ingredients. /li>
  • Not one commercial dog food on the local Wal-Mart shelves is on any 'best dry dog food list'.
  • Just because your dog will eat it, doesn't mean it's good for him.
  • There are more dog foods available than paparazzi following Prince William and the new bride.
  • Dogs are often over fed by their loving owners.
  • The FDA is responsible for dog food safety.

Risk of Salmonella Contamination from Dog and Cat Food and Treats


Canned and dried dog and cat food can become contaminated either during production or storage. Pig ears and similar treats that involve dried animal parts can cause salmonella infection in people. Salmonella Lurks in Pet Foods Too | NYTimes explains:

Dried pet food typically is heated to high temperatures that kill bacteria before it is shaped into different shapes of kibble. But dry food is not necessarily produced under sterile conditions, and contamination can occur at various stages in the production process, veterinarians say. Canned food, by contrast, is vacuum-sealed and sterilized but can be contaminated after it is opened if improperly stored or handled.


Pig ears, which are frozen, cleaned and flavored but not cooked, may become contaminated from the original animal carcass. One study in Canada found that 51 percent of pig ears purchased at stores contained salmonella; another study also found high rates of contamination, 41 percent, in pig ears sold in the United States.

Moral of the story -- everyone who lives or works with pets should thoroughly wash their hands before and after handling pet food.
