Dog Foods

"Dog food recalls"

The dog foods recalled seem to be occurring just about every day. The years of 2006 – 2007 were horrible for pets and pet owners alike. I was very fortunate because of Hannas allergies. I had to change her diet and the brand of food we used.

I had to remove all of the wheat gluten and food coloring from her diet. It turns out the food I was buying was one of the foods that were being recalled. I never thought I would be glad Hanna had allergies but I sure am, because that saved the lives of both my girls.

Well this year again I find there are recalls on pet foods. I am very concerned about these constant recalls just as everyone is. It seems they are for a wider range of brands from the cheap or least expensive foods to the top gourmet brands.

Make your own dog food

These are foods that could be deadly to your pet so please do not include these items in cooking for your pets.
