I was at the vet last week, and a man in his mid sixties wanted to buy a bag of food… I don’t remember if it was dog food or cat food.  The burly man asked the receptionist for a bag of food, and she reached up, and handed him what they recommend for this pet, and he stopped the purchase, and asked where it was made.

The receptionist read the label and announced, “made in China”.  The man said, “I don’t want that”, and the receptionist put it back.  She then handed him another brand of food, and he asked again, “where’s it made?”  She read the label, and announced, “made in France.”  He grumbled, “I don’t want that either.”  They went through several brands of food until they found one made in the U.S.A.

I thought to myself, could it be that easy?  We should become more careful, and read all of the labels, not only for our dogs but for our families.  I remember two years ago, after a big scare, I went to buy Sarah some crayons.  I read the fine print, the crayons were made in China and I did not buy them.  With regard to the Trifexis post yesterday, we should simply start reading the labels!

So, you would think it’s just that easy, right?  Read the labels?  I thought so too, until I read this article.

The best way to protect your pet, is to cook it yourself.

Last night, while on the phone with an adopter (concerned about Claire Bear) she shared with me a dog food scam, how the dog food  made her dog sick enough that the dog received emergency surgery, and that the company was repeatedly charging her credit card.  The charges were made from all over Europe.  She realized that the dog food company was a pyramid scheme scam.  I hope to get details about this incident, and share it with you shortly.
