Now I'm REALLY ticked off

As Kathy, Rhonda, and Nicole have stated in their blogs and as it's been mentioned in the news, there's been a massive recall of pet food due to contamination in certain dog and cat foods. I took a look at the list and saw that none of Jazz's food was on the list so I felt safe with what we were feeding her.

Last week we took Jazz to the vet to get her bloodwork and blood pressure checked. We talked to the vet about the pet food recall and she asked us what we were feeding her. We told her and she gave us crap for it because apparently it's full of sugar and fat. So trying to be the responsible pet owners we are we decided to start her on the vet pet food. We figured we'd be safe with the vet stuff too in light of what's been going on. We bought a case of the stuff. Now I read online that the vet stuff has also been recalled! I've been feeding it to my cat for a week now! Needless to say, we're going back to the crap food. It might be crap food but at least it's not poisoned.

Jazz seems ok right now. I'll keep everyone posted.

Keep that food and your receipt as your recourse if anything should happen.
We feed Bear Natural Balance (Dick Van Patten's Brand) and Wellness dry food. Both brands are gluten free and free of byproducts. You can get them at PetValu.

OMG!!! We feed our kitty homemade food that has human grade chicken, vegis and lots of good supplements. She is 19 and going strong!!
Even the vet's sensitive food didn't agree with her so this is our best bet and after the recall - I have never been happier to make it for her each week!! I would be giving your vet a call...

This is just a nightmare. We feed our pets Iams. We've been fine so far.

This entire thing is a nightmare. I know how much more expensive that food from the vets can be, and then to think it may be contaminated. That stinks.

Keeping Jazz in my thoughts.
