Would you like to see your club more involved in making members aware of epilepsy in your breed? Has your club done a good job on a health survey, or awareness campaign? Any novel fundraisers or other activities by your club? Please share what you would like to see your clubs do, and the things that clubs are already doing that have worked.

Recalled dog and cat foods

Post by Darby's mom » Mon Mar 19, 2007 8:13 am

I am sure that most of you have already heard, but I wanted to make sure. On Friday, the makers of Eukanuba, Iams and Nutro dog and cat foods (among other brands that the Menu Foods company produces) announced the precautionary recall of a portion of the dog and cat food it manufactured between December 3, 2006 and March 6, 2007. The recall is limited to "cuts and gravy" style pet food in cans and pouches manufactured at two of the Fund's United States facilities. This recalled food is affecting the renal health of the pets consuming the products. I have heard that around 10 of the many sick animals have died. Here are the links to the press release and the dog and cat recalled products list.

A good place to keep up on any new recall notices is the FDA's site at:
