  1. It is a sad thing, but pet food seems to be more likely tainted these days as companies vie for profits in the pet food industry.

    One of my housesit homeowners feeds her gun dogs raw meat that she has bought from local butchers. She freezes it as soon as purchased, as the freezing process will destroy some (but not completely all) pathogens present in the meat. She always buys solid meat cuts, never hamburger or minced as there is less likelihood of contamination. Her dogs also get a variety of fresh, raw vegetables. At nearly thirteen years old, her Weimaraner rescue dog (with a bad Leishmaniasis infection) is one of the healthiest ‘old’ dogs I have ever seen. She has pure white teeth, good breath, and runs around like a youngster.

    The recalls for pet food are scary. It suggests more and more that we should treat our pet friends more like our human family and be prepared to pay just that bit more to provide them a good life.

    1. What a beautiful and heart-felt response from you, Colette. Thank you. It strikes me, despite it being a rather obvious reply from me, that I should add as a new and separate reply to this post, the details of what Jean feeds our dogs. Coming up later!
