What’s in Our Pets’ Food?

I know most pet owners were as upset and scared as I was when we first started hearing about the melamine that was in some of the pet foods on the market. And it seemed like every day another brand was being put on the danger list. Cats and dogs were dying from the contaminated foods and all I could think of was what would I do if my pets were eating the bad foods.

I talked to my veterinarian about the foods and started being even more careful about the brands I buy for my boys, but I still have my doubts about what is in the foods. They could be putting anything in the foods…the US government doesn’t regulate the ingredients in pet foods!

I guess until the government decides that pets are as important as people when it comes to food, I’ll have to buy the special brands for my four-legged babies. But to me, they are definitely worth it!
