Monsanto and Pesticides, how much do you know about them?

2010 was a very difficult year.
Losing our beautiful Airedale to Cancer was devastating.
I did not know that the number one cause of death in dogs is now Cancer?
But the thing that makes it impossible to get over, is in knowing that her death may have been directly related to the food that she ate.
A result of searching for answers to the cause of Cancer in a young, healthy dog was the alarming discovery that many pet foods contain a pesticide called Ethoxyquin and that it has been linked to Cancer.
If your pets kibble (dry food) has any fish in it, there is a good chance that while it sat on a boat in port, it was sprayed with this toxin, in fact the Coast Guard requires it.
And guess who makes Ethoxyquin?

Big Chemical Companies are being sued right now by Environmental groups for their Pesticide link to poisoning Wildlife.
The Pesticides these Companies produce are poisoning animals, land and people, big time!
California has so many lawsuit cases related to Pesticides, that the Courts will be filled for years trying to settle it all.

The USDA has just caved in and will now allow GE ( genetically engineered) Alfalfa to be produced.
It starts when the animals eat it and then trickles down to everything connected to them, like milk, eggs, etc.
Everything will be changed by GE feed.
But, that's a whole 'nother story!

So, when you feed your dog or cat tonight, ask yourself if you really know what they are eating.
If you buy their food, have you read the label on it?
Ask the Company who makes it if it contains Ethoxyquin.
The best preservative is a natural one, never a pesticide or chemical.

But, the very best food for your pet is the one you make at home.
Diced Organic veggies, Organic Greek Yogurt with blueberries,
these are just part of our dogs daily diet.
If this sounds like Human Food, it is.
And it is what your pet deserves.
Not the stuff sold at the stores which contain toxins that will make your pet sick and eventually kill them.
