Judge Grants Initial Approval to Pet Food Settlement

dogandkittyImage3.jpg

On Friday May 30 a judge gave initial approval to the pet food settlement:


CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) -- A judge granted initial approval Friday to a settlement in which companies that manufactured or sold contaminated pet food would compensate pet owners for all costs related to the death or illness of their dogs and cats.

Under the deal, granted initial approval by U.S. District Judge Noel Hillman, pet owners in the United States and Canada would be notified of the settlement by June 16 and would have until early December to submit claims. A final hearing on the $24 million settlement is scheduled for Oct. 14.

The settlement doesn't pay pet owners for pain and suffering from injuries to their pets.

And why aren't pain and suffering factors? Because--even though we may consider our pets to be members of our family, pets are only property in the eyes of the law.

Contaminated Pet Food Settlement

dogtable.jpg

A settlement has been reached in the dispute over contaminated pet food. This settlement between pet owners and Diamond Pet Foods has not been approved by a judge and will be heard May 30. We will keep you posted.


Companies that were sued over contaminated pet food linked to the deaths of perhaps thousands of dogs and cats have agreed to pay $24 million to pet owners in the United States and Canada.

The settlement is detailed in papers filed late Thursday in U.S. District Court in Camden. It still needs a judge's approval.

"The settlement attempts to reimburse pet owners for all of their economic damages," said Russell Paul, a lawyer for plaintiffs in the lawsuit.

The deal would affect people who incurred expenses directly related to the illness or death of a pet linked to the food, which was at the center of the biggest-ever U.S. pet food recall in 2007.

Under the terms of the deal announced Thursday, pet owners could be reimbursed for all reasonable expenditures, including veterinarian bills and burial or cremation costs.

Pet owners could also ask for the fair market value of their deceased pets, if that is higher than the costs incurred. Owners who do not have documentation of their expenses can get up to $900 each. All claims are subject to a review.

The settlement addresses economic issues, but to many of us, pets are more than property. What about pain and suffering?

Kitchen Scraps for Your Pet -- What's Good & What's Not

db_Golden_Retriever_Puppies1.jpg

When we are in the kitchen whomping up some vittles, it is so hard to resist those cute faces. No one ever feeds them and all they want is a little tidbit! But are you sure those scraps you throw to them won't be harmful?

Check out this MSNBC article, 'People foods that can kill your pet' where you can find a list of bad and good foods for your pet.

If you do make a mistake, or your pet does, here's what to do in case of emergency. Save or bookmark this info:

Despite all the precautions you take to keep your pet pals safe, accidents do happen. That's why the ASPCA, Humane Society and animal advocates advise pet owners to keep the telephone numbers of their local veterinarian and the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center -- (888) 426-4435 -- in a prominent location.

Common signs of poisoning include muscle tremors or seizures; vomiting and diarrhea; drooling; redness of skin, ears and eyes; and swelling and bleeding.

If you suspect your pet has consumed, inhaled or come in contact with a toxic substance, stay calm and call for help immediately. If you see your pet consuming anything you think might be toxic, seek emergency help immediately even if she or he is not exhibiting any symptoms.

And while we are on the subject, here are two articles that may help someday:
