Food Recall - read what your vet does!
 
Hi,
I don't know if this was posted already, but I thought this was interesting and possibly helpful to other pet-parents. This could be what your vet knows, and shares some details I didn't hear/know yet. The link below is from the AVMA: briefly described on their site as:

[I]"The AVMA, founded in 1863, is one of the oldest and largest veterinary medical organizations in the world. More than 75,000 member veterinarians are engaged in a wide variety of professional activities. AVMA members are dedicated to advancing the science and art of veterinary medicine, including its relationship to public health and agriculture."[/I]

[B]On the AVMA site are several articles including this one that I scanned regarding the recall, with suggestions for vets:[/B] (though I'm in Canada, haven't had time/been able to seek the Canadian version of this organization or info from them yet.):

[url]http://www.avma.org/aa/menufoodsrecall/veterinarian_info_acvim.asp[/url]

This one is more basic and a few days older, but written to us the pet-parents: [url]http://www.avma.org/press/releases/070319_petfoodrecall.asp[/url]

Hope this post is ok and that it is of interest, I'm kinda new... :angel: Fingers crossed and positive vibes sent to all pet-parents, especially those with ill or lost fuzzy-loves....

Scary, thanks for posting the AVMA's response to the recall.....I was about to post the same link but you beat me to it. :D

Yay!
 
I'm just glad someone else saw it... and maybe others will now too. :) A few tips and tidbits of info inside to be sure.
Tried a few Canadian sites and most referred to or copied the AVMA article anyway. :cat:
