As pet owners we can deeply care about our animal companions. Pet Food Recalls not only shock us, as we have trusted the manufacturers, but these Recall Alerts also instill terror in our hearts.
This year has seen so many recalls it is unbelievable.
A dear friend sent me the following expose and I suggest that time be spent reading it. I for one am going to continue to make meals (supplemented with required vitamins) for my own pets.
