Peddling Poison

Our baby Breanna at four months~

As you may already know, we have an Airedale named Breanna, who is unashamedly, the center of our universe.
We are very careful about everything that touches her life, especially the food that she eats, which is why the news this morning was so hard to hear.
I/we know that not everyone goes so over the top when it comes to food as we do, but we lost one to cancer and were determined that we would never allow anything questionable to ever come into our home again.
People have often remarked about the diets that I have fed my Airedales, saying that they don’t eat as good as they do.
(A former colleague at UCLA once asked if when he died, he could come back as my dog.)
No, Breanna does not get anything to eat that comes from out of this country, in fact, much of what she eats is Organic and I/we prepare it for her.
If you are curious, please visit this page to read more about her very carefully chosen diet, which has been approved by her Vet at the UF Veterinary School:   An Airedale Named Breanna
But, back to the whole reason for this posting today.
If you give your dog, or cat treats called Jerky, please do look at the package and confirm its point of origin.
If it is from China, it could kill your pet.
If you still have the receipt, you might ask for a refund!
China, as you may or may not know, has a long dirty record when it comes to food products sent to this country and indeed the world, to be consumed by unsuspecting humans and/or their pets.
The FDA says that they are on top of this, well, that would be a first!
In my opinion, the only ones with a worse record for food abuse in this country, other than China, would be our own FDA!
Their position on GMO’s, is only one example, but please do remember, that one of their top people is a former lawyer from Monsanto!
It is very sad, that as pet owners we must constantly be so vigilant in protecting them from things that others sell, that could kill them.
It is more than past time, for the United States to grow a backbone and tell China that they can peddle their poison elsewhere, the US is not buying it anymore.
