Protest Planned Over Pet Food Recall


A nationwide march/protest is in the works to show pet food companies and lawmakers that pet owners are not happy with the low safety standards for pet food.

The protest is scheduled for April 28th, and pet owners in several cities can contact Pets Need a Voice Too if interested in adding a march in their own city.

While it comes at a terrible cost, I am pleased to see people taking an interest in their pet's health and diet. Frinklin and I feed five different foods to our four dogs in order to get what we feel is the best nutritional value to each. The Jeffrey gets a dry prescription food, Perdita gets her dry Wellness puppy food, Matchbox and Pharaoh get a mixture of Wellness Super 5 Mix and Active Care (for specific food ingredients and joint care). Pharaoh also gets Active Care wet food to entice him to eat, as he can be a reluctant eater at times. Our cats are fed Wellness wet and dry cat food. Wellness and Active Care don't contain wheat gluten, which is suspected to be the dangerous ingredient. Although now there are fears that rice protein and corn gluten may also be suspect.

If Chinese wheat gluten is the dangerous ingredient, pet owners may be picking a big fight with U.S. subsidized wheat farmers. We use Chinese wheat because it's cheaper to import than to buy our home-grown wheat. Processing the wheat overseas is also cheaper. It's horrible that our pets are suffering, and it raises the concern over human-grade food.

UPDATE: Old Mother Hubbard, which produces Wellness states that the only ingredient sourced overseas is lamb from New Zealand. They do not use any Chinese import products, and they use a human food auditing firm for plant inspection.
