Dog food companies caught using recycled dead pets

Recommended Posts

This is from a different source I think  -  but its the same story I believe:
https://www.theorganicprepper.com/dog-food-recalled-euthanasia-drugs/
Its not the first time this has happened  -  one of the reasons I switched to raw feeding.

Thanks! The one I tried to post was a tad more graphic. Very disturbing to read about vets selling your dead pet to be recycled and used as cheap protein a.k.a BY PRODUCTS to these money hungry corporations.

I’m waiting for Autumn to turn 1 before I start a raw diet. So right now I feed her organically. Any suggestions on how to safely start her on a raw diet?

It's too bad that these companies do this!! Shocking!! And the result, dogs dying. Just sad all the way around.
But I'll continue feeding my two dry food because I give mine quality blended food...I don't like going the raw route. It's just not for me. Luckily, Purina Smart One wasn't on that big list of products. My dogs seem very healthy and happy.

Lunar was three before I finally got him to eat raw  -  but when I got Marley at 12 weeks old I changed him over from the kibble he was on to raw immediately.

Here are some articles you may find useful  -  the first one became my 'bible' after I came across it.   I still use this today to ensure I am covering all the bases with regards to nutrition.   They don't need everything every day  -  just make sure they get everything over time  (say a week)    I work to ensure they get every vitamin and mineral every two days personally - but I am a bit anal about nutrition generally.    I copied & pasted this article into a spreadsheet  and then use it as a checklist to ensure my boys get everything they should in one form or another.

Hope these articles help - or at least give you some informative reading material.      As to how I transitioned my dogs over  -  Lunar took me about a week  (but he had had dietary issued from 12 weeks old so I was wary)  but with Marley I fed him what I fed Lunar from his first meal with me  -  he took to it immediately with no side effects.

Thank you! I’ll start doing my homework.

There are quite a few raw feeders on the forum so someone will be able to answer any questions you may have  -  but those articles will give you a fairly good grounding.  As I mentioned above I am a little 'anal' about making sure my boys get the best diet I can afford for them.    Take yesterday,  they had fresh salmon, beef mince, pork chunks, & a raw egg.

The salmon I buy frozen  -  £3 a kilo  -  full length salmon with the best bits cut off but still lots of flesh as well as the bones  -  the dogs favourite  -  or if my local supermarket has an offer on salmon  they save me all the off-cuts and I get it for free. :goodjob:  Beef mince from my butcher, pork chunks 2" cubes  £3 a kilo,   around £7 for thee days worth of food for two dogs  -  I normally spend around  £15 a week on food for them   if I fed a good quality wet food I would probably spend around £13 for the two.

Hubby complains regularly that they get fed better than he does  -  so I always offer to feed him the same food  -  but bearing in mind we are vegetarian he declines  ;)

I believe raw is best, but it’s an individual choice and I wouldn’t criticise anyone who doesn’t.
I used to buy meat, poultry, fish, offal, fruit and veg, fish oil etc and make sure I got the balance right and then Dan introduced me to Natural Instinct, I haven’t looked back since. It’s raw food that’s frozen, there’s plenty of choice available and Cai and Luka love it!
All I need to do is defrost it. They still have their fruit and treats but it used to be abit of a headache making sure I was giving them both the right amount of nutrients........not anymore.

Thank you. There’s a local pet shop 5 mins away Pets Life Naturally, that offer prepared raw frozen foods. Good to know about Natural Instinct as a backup plan.
