    I had a fun murder mystery going in Writing Forum. Thought I'd give it a shot. Part of my murder mystery incorporated the death of two of my dogs in two weeks. We think it's linked to the dog food again, and I was just going to go back to sleep but then I thought I better come to pets and let you know whats going on.

    I lost two catahoulas within a two week period. When we lost Dusty we acutally thought (including our vet) it was pyometra because she had come into heat and just didn't look well.

    Please everyone understand, I really am in the middle of nowhere. There is no vet around the corner. On a good day our vet can make it to this area twice a week. Barring blizzards and or flooding.

    Dusty died in our arms.

    My vet may the good Lord bless her soul had to come thru flooded areas to make it here to euthanise American Bad Ass.

    sorry crying

    There was no reason for either of these dogs to die. We are talking primo. I bred them. I am a registered breeder.

    They were gorgeous and in the prime of life. And my babies.

    Pardon spelling, I'm crying again.

    So we are thinking it has to be a horrid repeat of 2007. We're getting the word as fast as we can. To as many websites as possible. No one can believe this, but I think it's happenening again.

    But only a couple of recalls are starting to come in including what we fed our dogs.

    Here's the FDA link from 2007

    I just answered you in the other thread,

    I'm on NyQuil and crying on and off still so I'm not up to my normal self at all here.


    Here's the problem. The company that makes the food for all the brands and we are talking whether you buy Science Diet or a cheap brand like Mainstay all come out of only a few plants.

    You think you're spending an extra $20 to buy YOUR dog better food. Nope.

    You would pass out if you saw the list. I know I screamed a primordial scream.

    And you know what the ingredient was? Wheat gluten. Freaking wheat gluten.

    The sons of guns, I don't know if I can swear on this board, they spiked the wheat gluten with melamine.

    Freaking melamine. Like who does this?

    Here's an idea of what we could be up against.

    Menu Foods produced all these brands. This was from the pet food scandal of 2007.

    Sorey about your loss. My dog was poisoned by our illegal alien neighbors last year. He was an 8 month old Pit Bull, and the best dog I had ever had. Take it easy.

    I stick with Purina. So far, they have never been on any list of killer foods.

    I'm so sorry about your pets. I feel your pain. :(

    btw..when they are not eating Beneful by Purina, they eat California Natural, found at the local farmers supply and specialty pet food chain store Lemo's here in California. You may be able to order it online. It is not cheap. I stretch it by adding food I cook for them myself. A whole chicken cut up, boiled with 2 cups white rice, lots of cut up carrots into a stew. Remove all bones after chicken is cooked. After cooling, put in freezer bags. One chicken/rice/carrot stew mixed in with beneful or california natural lamb and rice dry food lasts a week. 4 dogs, one cat. PURINA. Or CALIFORNIA NATURAL. And make your own dog food.
