As the recent burgeoning dog food recall continues to grow in the number of reported cases of dog deaths due to kidney failure, another manufacturer is recalling products it sells to pet retailers nationwide.

Dog biscuits are the latest dog food product to be added to the dog food recall that has resulted in the reporting of more than 12,000 complaints by consumers to the FDA

Sunshine Mills is the manufacturer of the now recalled dog biscuits which are sold by the Wal Mart chain of stores under the Ol? Roy brand. The tainted dog food treats were discovered to contain wheat gluten contaminated with melamine, a chemical used in the manufacture of plastics and fertilizer.

Sen. Dick Durbin has now called for Senate hearings on Pet Food Regulations.

The commercial dog food industry exists, in our opinion, for only one reason. That being to profit the manufacturers and retailers of most of the low grade dog foods which is full of junk fillers, industrial garbage and toxins. In fact, many dog food manufacturers daily use rendered euthanized dogs in their products.

It is no wonder that our dogs live less than ? of their realistic life expectancy and that so many die of cancer and unknown illnesses.

There are dogs foods that are good and healthy for your dog. These are not made with junk fillers, preservatives, by products and additives. Read your dog food label carefully. The first ingredients listed make up the majority of what?s inside. Make sure your dog is eating meat as a protein source and not by products or wheat gluten.

My small 8 year old dog suddenly became ill and no vet could determine the cause. She died after enduring 2 weeks of pain and misery on Mother?s Day morning. Her life expectancy was 25 years. Don?t let anything happen to your best friend.
