In recent years the Pet Food Industry has had too many announcements about tainted pet products produced in the USA with imported raw ingredients that were not regulated at the source for quality and safety putting our Pets at risk. Blind trust through slick advertising must no longer be our baramoter for true quality and safety when it comes to our food supply, not for our Pets or ourselves.
In the last two weeks Listeria has been found in multiple national pet treat brands. What is occurring is the recall announcements are made yet the products remain on many big box store shelves giving us, the consumer, a false sense of security. Don't be fooled, be informed, check the lot number against the national registry for recalled products. The best treat is the one with limited ingredients with food names you can pronounce. Real food!
Dogs can eat fresh, organic Carrots, Blueberries, Apples and dehydrated Chicken. Choosing local sources grown close to your home is the best for Rover and for your peace of mind.
Think twice before tossing those treats into your cart. Check out the tainted treats and pet food recalls 365 days a year here,https://www.avma.org/news/issues/recalls-alerts/pages/pet-food-safety-recalls-alerts.aspx
