  1. Tweeted about this and will post to FB too to alert peeps to get the word out. Why in the world phenobarb is getting into food supplies is beyond troubling as that seems to be a deliberate contamination since it’s a controlled substance. 👿

  2. Hi, this is pretty scary stuff for our much loved special family members. I will make sure to tell my sister. It could be especially deadly for much older doggies. Thank you, Paul!
