Pet Food Recall Extends to Biscuits

Update on pet food recall. Word is that biscuits sold at Wal-Mart are involved. ABC News has a current recall list. Outrageous does not describe it. Listening to a news report today on MSNBC tv, rumor has it that melamine artificially ups the protein content in pet food, which would allow for a price increase.

Greed. Not worth my pets' health. Stay tuned, and watch your pets closely for vomiting (of course our huntress Molly decided to go that route, but probably gecko ingestion) and lethargy.

Pet Food Recall Update

The tainted pet food nightmare continues as recall is expanded.


Our vet recommends we feed our dogs no more than 4 cups of food a day. Our girls have perfected the art of looking adorable, so admittedly they rake in a few cookies and snacks as well. We feed a mixture of canned and dry food twice daily.

So far, to our knowledge, we have fed our dogs 12 cans each of tainted Nutro Natural Choice Chicken Gravy. We switched to Science Diet which was rock hard in the can. Now the Alpo cans we bought this week are on the recall list! The unopened case has already been returned.

We are going off the cans completely and have scheduled blood tests for our dogs next week to rule out any kidney damage. Our vet is charging $40 per blood test and waiving office fees. Peace of mind--priceless!

Revolution Dog / Cat Parasite Medication


We live in a sub-tropical climate and therefore must protect our pets from parasites year-round. Even if you only need to treat your pets on a part-time basis during the year, tick and flea season is now upon us. Our vet recommends Revolution..

We order this product in 6 month batches--since we have 2 dogs it covers 3 months. The medication comes with stickers for your calendar as reminders. We pick the first of the month--simple and easy.

Revolution prevents heartworm and fleas and ear mites. It is recommended for use on puppies and kittens over six weeks of age. After two hours it is waterproof and should be effective through swims, shampoos, rain and so on. We apply it before bedtime and let it work overnight.

Revolution features:

* Prevents heartworm disease
* Kills adult fleas and prevents their eggs from hatching
* Treats and controls ear mites
* Treats and controls sarcoptic mange (in dogs only)

Avoid Expensive Veterinary Bills--Insure Your Pet

Pet Health Insurance For Cats & Dogs

When our pup, Jessie, was 1-1/3 years old, she lost the ability to open her jaw. Lockjaw, one would automatically think. To make a long story short--no, she has masticular myosits. She could still eat, so was surviving.Golden Retrievers love to carry things in their mouth--not a good situation for any pooch. Our vet was stumped and referred us to the vet specialists in our area. They charge at least $1,000 to say hello. But they did diagnose Jessie and put her on prednisone which saved her life.

The point of this story is that we did NOT have health insurance. We spent lots of money on Jessie, and perhaps could have saved some with an insurance plan. A family we know spent thousands on their black poodle suffering from repeated bouts with bloat (twisted stomach), a life-threatening condition that eventually did cost the poodle his life at 6 years old.

If you are considering pet insurance, it is available from QuickCare Pet Insurance.

Safe Paw Ice Melter for Dogs and Cats


This Safe Paw Ice Melter would be a handy product to have in the house. As the temperatures rise in the day the snow will melt and then as the sun goes down, ice will form on steps and walkways overnight. Many of us use rock salt to make the walks less treacherous for us. But what we don't think about is how treacherous the salt can be on our pet's paws.

Give Your Pets Advantage for Fleas

An unpleasant by-product of having a dog or a cat is flea infestation. Fleas can cause your pet serious misery such as flea allergy dermatitis, secondary skin infections, tapeworms, and even anemia. Living in the country, we have had more than one whole-house flea infestation. These tiny dark brown insects prefer temperatures of 65-80 degrees and humidity levels of 75-85%, so depending upon where you call home they can be more than just a "summer" problem. Advantage Topical Flea Treatment is a once-a-month flea treatment that kills fleas before they lay eggs and flea larvae before they hatch. ArrowContinue reading: "Give Your Pets Advantage for Fleas"
