Contents of pet food (and human food!) is still an issue and seems to be in the news constantly.

Take a look at Dog Food Analysis and see what your dog’s food contains. You may be surprised. The web site includes extensive information about what’s really in dog food and reviews. I visited this site about a year ago and checked out how my dogs’ food ranked. I immediately changed foods. My senior girls now eat Canidae Platinum and my young boy eats Innova. There’s some new dehydrated dog food I want to research, too.

No Buddy Gets Left Behind

October 20, 2008

I’m a firm believer that pets contribute to your personal well being.

I’ve read a few stories here and there about soldiers who have worked hard to get companion animals back to the U.S. from Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s not an easy process. Sad, because I know these animals really meant a lot to these people.

Today, I read about a soldier and Ratchet, the dog that helped her make it through her 13-month deployment. Ratchet is on his way to the U.S. thanks to many, including Operation Baghdad Pups. They help transport unit mascots and soldiers’ companion animals to the U.S. Very good work.

It’s a sad day for the animals in Houston. I just got word that Saving Animals Across Borders has closed and is filing for bankruptcy. Saving Animals operated a spay/neuter clinic I recently used for a foster dog.

I can’t say I didn’t see this coming, based on a recent article in the Chronicle.

Luckily, there are other discount spay/neuter clinics in the greater Houston area.
