You should feed your dogs more homemade food and then you would not have to watch your dogs suffer when the commercial plants mess up the formula. I like to cook healthy meats, rice and vegetables and I use fresh herbs etc. This has got to be more healthy then canned dog food. Who knows what they put int that stuff.

I've been feeding homemade to my dogs and cats for TWENTY ONE YEARS. Was that aimed at ME?

I suppose that this will result in an amazing diet. I did want to drop a few pounds ... :/

Go take a break Christie. You (and Gina) deserve it. Nothing more is going to be forthcoming today. I really really thought there would be some answers, though all I have are more questions. I'm going to go read some (more) science fiction myself!

Though I do hope people will pick up their pens, write the FDA, state officials, congress people, etc. and let them know that we want a system that works. Please let them know that pet parents vote and have locking jaws.

I really don't see this being a US/Canada issue. Could just as easily have happened with a US producer. Ye gods, look at the lack of supervision that goes into food produced in the US for people - you think it's any better for pets!?

Now, on to practical issues: I feed my dog dry dog food (don't hit me, please - she eats a lot better than I do). I'm reading the label and I don't see wheat gluten as a listed ingredient. Does that mean I'm safe for the moment?

Hi All,

Canadian pets are dying too . . .

Here's something positive we might all do to help. If you go to www.petitionz.org you can "sign" the PETition calling for enforced regulation and arms-length testing of pet food or vote anonymously in the polls.

Let's let the industry and the politicians of both countries know that they have to do something NOW.

Please spread the word.

Those of you that have been making your own dog food, what do you prepare for your pets? We are so worried about what to feed our cats and dogs that we are scrambling all around to all the of the whole food markets in town searching for the most natural dog and cat foods possible. A family vet said to keep all purchased dog and cat foods away from them. You just never know what is going to be hidden inside. Help, those of you who know what to make and how to make it.
Thanks,
Jennifer and Nicole
