Talk about someone with a mental disorder...
42
Okay. Those of us that insist on feeding species appropriate diets to our furry friends now have a mental disorder. Yeah. Dr., go heal thine own self and quit trying to diagnose everyone on earth with something that needs a pill and your extended services!

My psychological interest in this matter came from the fact that it appeared to me that the dog owners who insisted on a raw food diet for their dogs might be showing some form of orthorexia nervosa. This is a proposed eating disorder which is marked by an excessive preoccupation with eating healthy food. The term was proposed in 1997 by the American physician Steven Bratman who was concerned that an obsession with healthy food could, paradoxically, lead to unhealthy consequences. It seemed to me that a obsession with a raw food diet for dogs based on a belief that this was the most healthy way to feed them, despite evidence to the contrary, might be an extension of that same psychological problem, only here people were applying it to their dogs rather than to themselves.

Recalls / Re: Dave’s Pet Food Voluntarily Recalls 95% Premium Beef Canned Dog Food
« Last post by Lola on June 14, 2018, 10:58:13 AM »
I don't remember who it was, but someone tested x amount of canned pet foods.  VERY few had the appropriate amount of vitamins and such.  If I remember correctly, they were lacking, rather then having too much. 

I'm glad that one of the first things someone taught me (when I fed canned) was to rotate, rotate, rotate.  Rotating saved our cats from a baaaaaad situation.  Even with feeding raw, I still rotate brands of meat and proteins.

Dave’s Pet Food of Agawam, MA is recalling a single lot of Dave’s Dog Food 95% premium beef cans because the products potentially contain elevated levels of beef thyroid hormone.

Product was distributed all along the east coast of the US, sold in pet stores and ecommerce sites.

The recalled product consists of a single batch (548 cases) of 13 oz., 95% premium beef dog food with a UPC # of 85038-11167 and a date code of 08/2020.

Dogs consuming high levels of beef thyroid hormone may exhibit symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness. These symptoms may resolve when the consumption of these levels is discontinued. However, with prolonged consumption these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or labored breathing. Should these symptoms occur, we recommend pet owners contact their veterinarian immediately.

Cat Chatter / Re: What The Cat(s) Did Today...

ChaCha decided to return her breakfast on a 8-fur sheep skin blanket. No fun but OK heat, curry brush and elbow grease did the job. The Izzi played with a can of seltzer water on my desk. "nuff said? Both are well and ShadowCat is snoring loudly on my desk. Time to get her checked for sleep apnea:>)

Add fillings from berries/sugar/corn starch to nuts/sugar/ honey, apples/crumbs (1 part sugar/butter/2 parts flour).  Desert for a couple of days - watch temperature!!!
