No Die

Since the SAFETY of our pet food has been getting a lot of national attention lately, I wanted to bring up a few books that greatly affected me when I read them years ago.

It's very easy these days to find affordable organic pet food and although a brand like Iams claims to be a step up from the Meow Mixes, obviously we've sadly found that there's not much difference. (And if you didn't already know IAMS has been targeted by PETA for years because of animal torture)

Foods Pet Die For by Ann M. Martin

HERE is a review and short summary of the book.

"Ms. Martin claims her investigation uncovered shocking, unknown practices of the pet food industry, including the use of diseased livestock, road kill, and euthanized pets in pet food

The parts of beef, sheep, fish, and other animals commonly used in pet food are, according to the author, often "unfit for human consumption," including spinal cords, cartilage, bone, lungs, brains, hooves, hair, intestines, fish heads and viscera.

Pet owners assume their animal will be incinerated/cremated, but sometimes the contract companies sell the animals to a rendering plant, which sends the rendered material on to a pet food manufacturing plant."
