Interesting to watch the differences between feline and canine play behavior. Pretty cute!

EperTox, a medical testing lab in Texas, has found acetaminophen in numerous samples of pet food. (Acetaminophen is the generic name for Tylenol.) Due to a confidentiality agreement the lab cannot release the names of the foods affected. However, at least one sample was a variety Pet Pride brand cat food. The test results were reported to the pet food makers who should then have reported the findings to the FDA. But as of June 5th, the FDA still has not investigated EperTox’s findings.
Cats are very sensitive to acetaminophen. Dogs are less at risk, but are still sensitive to acetaminophen. Find out more about the signs of feline and canine acetaminophen toxicity. And find out much more about the pet food recall on my Pet Food Recall Archive Page.
The latest pet food to be added to the huge list of recalled brands is fish food for ornamental fish. The food is being recalled due to melamine contamination.
