SUMMARY: URLs of use during this pet crisis.
It has been a scary ride, with more pet foods recalled weekly. So far nothing I'm feeding my dogs has come up on the list. Believe me, when the first stories came out just after I had Jake put to sleep after his seizures after pigging out on treats, my heart twisted a million ways. However, I know a lot of comforting (at least in this matter) things: His symptoms before and after were consistent with brain tumor. His tests revealed none of the symptoms associated with the melamine contamination of pet foods. None of the things he ate are on the list (at least so far) of contaminated foods.
