Pet Food Recalls

How many more products are going to be affecting our pets? As pet consumers and advocates for our pets, it is because of these continual products “coming out” as affected, I will continue to feed my pet raw food because I know, other than myself, I know that it was either someone I know or the butcher who has come into contact with my pet’s food.

How about you? What are your thoughts? Does it change your views on which foods you feed your pets? Have you had to change foods because of the recalls? How many times have you had to? Have you considered feeding raw food to your dog or cat?
