Is there Chicken in Chicken Pet Foods?
One of the newest trends of pet food marketing is a tag line something like 'Chicken is the first ingredient'. Sounds good doesn't it? Chicken, first or second on the ingredient list surely means this pet food contains lots of quality meat doesn't it? No wonder this 'chicken' pet food is a little more expensive - it contains more meat. Right? Maybe not.

Pet Food Seminars
One of my many goals for Truth about Pet Food in 2012 is to provide pet food educational seminars across the country. An opportunity for pet parents to learn about pet foods with a goal to benefit animal shelters and rescue groups. I'm scheduling 2012 now; if your organization wants to host a pet food education event - with the proceeds to benefit an area shelter or rescue, contact me soon. Here's how it will work...
Happy New Year and Thank You
I am very hopeful that 2012 will be a very good year for our efforts to improve the safety, quality and transparency of pet food. But before we start a new year, I'd like to thank all of you for 2011.
Will Anyone Speak with Me at the AAFCO Meeting?
It is not looking positive. Thank heavens Dr. Jean Hofve (holistic veterinarian and pet food safety advocate) will be joining me at the AAFCO Meeting next month - without her, it might be no one even speaks to me at the meeting. Incoming AAFCO President Robert Waltz has not agreed to an interview and FDA Official Dr. Dan McChesney has not responded to two requests for interview.
Google Plus Hang Out with me at the AAFCO Meeting
I'm relatively new to Google Plus (Google's version of Facebook). But I have learned of a nifty little tool that Google Plus provides that I plan to utilize in 2012 beginning at the AAFCO Meeting next month - and that is Hang Out.
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
