Jeanne, if they stop making pig's ears, how are the pigs going to hear?

I agree that they need to stop fixing them for dogs, but then they will say they have to not make something else for dogs. They just keep it up, going after the different pet food manufacturers.

We tried them once years ago, and I couldn't get past the stink, or the gross texture once they had been chewed on for a bit... figured if they smelt that bad, felt that bad , they probably were just plain BAD!

Carolyn, I am so confused over dog food now. That about the grain free and heart problems got me worried and also the vets where I take Cassie. First they said it was because of things like peas, chick peas, etc. and exotic meats/proteins. Now they have a new thing out that it is not just them and they have no idea what is causing it. They have a huge list of foods they are saying cause it and many aren't even the grain free ones. About the only ones not on the list are Purina, Iams, Royal Canin, and Hills and Hills has been getting recalls because of too much vitamin D and according to one of Cassie's vets they haven't even been fixing it.

Right now I have a bag of food that has salmon and chick peas and I am afraid to feed it. I don't get anything from the Pet Food Pantry until next week, so have to feed that for a little over a week anyway.

I receive the emails from the Dog Food Advisor- I have a Golden and the last email scared me about Goldens and heart disease. I have decided to switch up her food and am finding the prices of the food way out of reasonable ranges. To add to our dilemma she is allergic to chicken, duck and turkey (anything with feathers, as my vet says).
Does anyone else have these issues?

What do you feed your dog(s)?

Darcy, not sure where you live. I live in Calif., so I only buy treats that are made in the United States. NOTHING from China. Canada I trust, but no other country. We buy Biscuit Buddy grain free, and Blue Dog Bakery. Under the General Team Discussion, we have Homemade dog treat recipes. You can browse through those and see if there is something your dogs would like.

Darcy - We have always had multiples ( I used to breed these guys) and have always only offered the same treat to everyone. Nobody gets to "pick and choose" what they get - eat it or lose it.....

We use the soft Fruitables,Benny Bully liver treats, and Old Mother Hubbard Originals - mini size. We also don't just give out random treats - you have to earn it, no freebies here!

The only times someone gets something different to what the others have are because of things like age - puppies tend to get softer, easier to chew ones initially, and the someone like our current senior can't eat a lot of different things because he only has 11 teeth, so it's hard for him to chew big or crunchy treats.

What are good dog treats? We have tried multiple brands but none are "favorites". We have 3 dogs, so 3 different preferences.

Am I wrong about this, or is "tiny" amount of salmonella not being dangerous akin to saying that you are only a little bit pregnant?

The video certainly raises red flags about this company in my eyes!

Someone needs to take a deeper look at the manufacturing processes involved with the maiking of these foods and then tighten up the regulations for safe content!

Again, thankfully NOT a food I use or have even heard of before, but still scary! Salmonella is definitely not something any one human or animal wants to have!!

Thanks Jeanne!!!

There have been so many recalls I figured I better make it a sticky topic.

Yes, it must be sourced by one company. There have been something like 9 recalls in the last couple of weeks.

I'm guessing that the problem is in some vitamin premix that they all bought. Wouldn't be surprised if the recall expands again. It's frustrating. emoticon

Yet another recall... this is scary stuff!!! It sure makes it hard to trust any manufaturer that their products are being produced in a safe manner, whether for human or for animal consumption, doesn't it!

Here's all 3 of the beasties.

The first picture was taken just after we got the babies, and the other one was just a few weeks ago.

Brinx ( 10 years old ) with the little boys ( 10 weeks old )


Brinx ( almost 11 years old ) with the little BRATS!! ( 10 months old )


Poor Brinx was just adjusting to being an "only" after loing both Phoenix and Arwen last year when we brought him the two little boys for his 10th birthday present... I firmly believe that even now, he would still really, really, REALLY like them to pack their bags and move on to plague someone else..... who lives very, very VERY far away! emoticon emoticon

Sorry Jeanne - I thought that I had put their names up, but apparently I forgot emoticon

The Blue Merle puppy is registered as "Omega Dreams Etched in Silver" because it has always been my DD Meaganne's dream to have a Blue. His regular name is "SOLO" ( as in Han Solo from Star Wars)

The Tri puppy is registered as "Omega's Mischief Managed", and his regular name is "GRYFFINDOR" - from Harry Potter, of course! He is also known as "the little black sh*t" because he is ALWAYS up to no good!

It is hard to say the least! I 'm not sure that I knew that you had lost both Alice and Henley as well. I am so sorry!
Losing the 2 of ours so close together, when Arwen seemed to be the picture of old, but good health just seemed to make it even worse. Of, course that still left us with yet another old dog - with a heart condition - Brinx will be 11 at the end of February!

On the plus side, Meaganne FINALLY has her Blue Merle that she has always dreamed about... We got two 10 week old litter mates this past March - both boys - a Blue and a Tri. They will be 11 months old next week.

Brinx would STILL very much to have them pack their bags and leave his house sooner rather than later! emoticon emoticon emoticon

E Coli is definitely SCARY! Hope that your neice's hubby keeps improving!

Jeanne - We lost Phoenix in June last year - Meaganne made the hard decision that it was time to let him go because he was failing more and more every day - he was almost 13! Then with no warning whatsoever, we lost Arwen 9 weeks later , which just left us with Brinx.

A lot of the fruits and veggies we buy are tainted with chemicals. Ecoli is bad. I had a mild case of it back in the 80's. Hope your family member will be fine in the long run.

Poor Phoenix. Big companies rarely admit to wrong doing, and they have the money to back them up for the most part. I hope Phoenix keeps getting stronger each day. What a shame.

Here's a couple more recalls. It's almost daily anymore.

Jeanne - About 10 days after opening a new bag of the Blue Buffalo, Phoenix started vomiting up most of his meal, undigested, about 8 hours after being fed. We took him off the food right away, took it back to the store, got a different bag of the same food

Again, about 10 days later the vomiting started all over again, only this time he had an almost 5 minute long Grand Mal seizure.. Got him into the vet within 20 minutes, taking all food, treats, etc. with us as well as a sample of the regurgitated food.

At that point the vet didn't think it was food related, but couldn't come up with any other ideas, so started him on a very gentle gastroenteritis type of diet. The vomiting and Grand Mal seizures continued for about 3 weeks before stopping completely. By that time we were making all of his food ourselves, following a very specific formulated recipe by nutritionist Hilary Watson ( a Canadian working out of the University of Guelph / Ontario Veterinary College).

By the time we got finally got Phoenix eating properly again, the vets decided that his digestive system, as well as his immune system would most likely never be the same again. The Grand Mal seizures stopped for good roughly 3 - 4 weeks after taking him off the Blue Buffalo food, but had certainly destroyed a fair bit of his brain cells in the process, He developed some neurological issues as well.

The company gave us absolutely ZERO back up throughout the whole episode, vehemently denying any culpability on the part of Blue Buffalo whatsoever, BUT were "nice " enough to send us a tiny (costs $5 up here) bag of dog treats!!!!

We heard of the multi - billion $ class action law suit that came along a few months later - a number of dogs had died / suffered multiple symptoms - seizures, liver, kidney damage ( or complete failure) BUT... since we are Canadian were not allowed to take part in the suit.

Every time I see one of the ads on the television claiming how superior a food it is, it makes my blood boil.

The Abound is in the stores here now and there are a lot of coupons for it. I told the one store about the recall. They might know about it, but I'd rather make sure they aren't selling it to unsuspecting people.

I have always heard that From is a good food. My problem is that I have to take what the Pet Food Pantry gets donated. I'm hoping that the Social Security raise will help and we won't get everything else to go up in price. My internet will go up no matter what and will require a new modem, I'm sure. They make me get a new contract every time and every time it requires a new modem.

More scary stuff! Thanks again for letting us know about it, Jeanne!

As we learned after the whole" Blue Buffalo poisoned our Phoenix " episode several years ago, you have to be so darn careful when choosing a food for your animals! His health was never good again even after we stopped using B.B.

The new little brats, as well as Brinx love their food (Fromm), and have all done very well on it!
