Foreign objects found in pet food

| Blog | August 14, 2018

Pet food industry in Australia is facing calls for regulation after recent cases of plastic moulds being found in kibble. In one particular case, around 74 cases of megaoesophagus has afflicted dogs in Melbourne, Australia. This has prompted the manufacture (Mars) to recall the product (https://www.advancepet.com.au/update-on-advance-dermocare-product-recall/).

Currently the industry is self regulating and has a voluntary compliance. In light of these cases, some owners have gone towards feeding their pets self prepared meat and vegetable. It is important to ensure the diet is balanced, and under no circumstances should bones be cooked. Cooked bones may splinter and cause serious harm to dogs.

What are you feeding your pet today?
