    Wow! Thank you so much for the list.

    It is just sick, all of this. I lost my 18 year old to kidney failure due to Frontline Flea Treatment (she was perfectly healthy before the application then started vomiting blood the next morning).

    Our new little one (only 5) had to have an eye removed due to cancer from God knows what.

    I don't trust food/pet products anymore.

    Do you know anything about Addiction Pet Foods? I believe they are a New Zealand Company. It is scary how many companies are tied to Menu, Diamon and American that have all had so many problems. We need some regulation in this industry!!

    I buy Orijen for my ferret... It's listed as "Origen" on the list for some reason.

    Buy Canadian... buy Albertan. ;)

    It's the best dry kibbles you can buy on the market anyway since there's no grain or meat byproducts. EXPENSIVE though, but you do get what you pay for.
