Dog and cat lovers - Have you noticed chicken jerky treats are making a comeback in pet stores? The majority of the packages now sport "Made in USA" labeling. In this revealing article, Dr John Heaslet, a veterinarian, explains why he's not so sure that these treats are safe. How do you feel about these newly introduced treats? Do you believe they should be considered safe simply because they claim to be "Made in the USA" on their packaging? http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/fda-chicken-jerky-inspections/

It is very scary for pet owners that these companies continue to make and sell products that could harm and have harmed our beloved pets.

Dog Owners - We just posted a new review for Earth's Pride dry dog food which is sold at BJ's Wholesale Club. This product used to be known as Berkley and Jensen and sported a much lower rating. The new chicken recipe and lamb recipe each received 4 stars and the duck earned a 5 stars. What do you think about the quality of this new food? http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-food-reviews/earths-pride-pet-dog-food/

Hey Dog Lovers - A kitten in Australia nearly died after his owners fed him a meat-free diet of only potatoes, rice milk, and pasta. A veterinarian who treated the tabby said, "Concern for animal welfare has to include a biologically-appropriate diet." Do you feed vegetarian and/or homemade dog food? If so, what do you do to avoid nutrient deficiencies?
A KITTEN has almost died after its owners fed it a strict vegan diet.

Patience is key. Put her the bowl for ten mins and if she does not eat , remove it till the next meal is on. Dogs are like children , they need some guidance. It's for their own good. Changing the food if he is on a balanced diet with all the balanced nutrients is not a solution, neither is giving a grain free or raw diet in my opinion, there is no actual research and locally cases of kidney failure were found cause of this diet.

Raw dog food? Some warn it's too risky for your pet --- and your family. Others argue raw dog food is the absolute healthiest way to feed your dog. This recent Canadian news story stirs up this never-ending controversy. Do you feed raw? Or have you been thinking about it? Please share your opinion, your fears and your experiences about raw dog food with others. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/sudbury/giving-pets-raw-food-comes-with-risks-sudbury-vet-says-1.2521036

Dog and cat lovers - The National Advertising Division, an entity which regulates advertisements, believes that Blue Buffalo commercials claiming that chicken by-products are not "real meat" is misleading to consumers. Do you think that by-products (which may include things like feet, backs, livers, lungs, heads, brains, spleens, frames, kidneys, stomachs, intestines, and Undeveloped eggs) are "real meat"? Are you comfortable with feeding by-products to your dogs? http://www.examiner.com/article/blue-buffalo-draws-fire-over-pet-food-ads

Well I wouldn't want all those by-products in my dogs' food. They should have the right to call it as they see it. If they don't think that these products are real meat, then they have the right to say so. The other companies are being sore losers.

I think if you really value your pet you will not purchase this pet treat. Don't wait for your dog to become ill. The government should have better control over animal foods and treats. Maybe if more animal owners speak up something will be done?
