Dog Food Recall-IMPORTANT!

Yesterday we found out there was a major dog food recall because it is causing severe Kidney failure and death in dogs. Today we are questioning if our dog food actually contributed to Danes short life. Over the pat few months we have given them a few of the re-called pouch foods as a treat. Here is a link from our local newspaper and a link to find out which foods are being recalled. We have been trying to make contact with the company but the phone lines have been busy all yesterday and today. This feels like a knife to the heart, you try and give your animals the very best food..no preservatives, no by-products and this is what is happening? Other than trying to give Jasmina a Raw food diet again I have switched her back to Innova dog food....all natural and fresh ingredients. Here a re a few links for you to read. Please check out the recalls, I don't want you to have to go thru anything like Kidney failure w/your pets. Even though Dane tested positive for a bacteria (Leptospirosis)we question...did it come from his food? My heart goes out to the thousands of people that are watching their pets have problems.

Dane's vet is out of town until this Wednesday but when she returns we will talk to her about this. In the meantime I will continue to try and contact the Menu Foods company.

Thanks Gina for sharing. This is just awful and really hope it had nothing to do with poor Dane becoming so sick.
