Hi Furkidlet's Mom!

Thank you for telling us about this new "must have" book smile.gif! I'll be placing my order today.

Peace & Love to you and yours,

Furkidlets' Mom
I was just thinking about this today, and can't remember now if I'd ever posted a topic and link to the groundbreaking book that began the better part of consumer re-education on pet foods, so.....

Here's a link to Ann Martin's third edition of her now-famous book, Food Pets Die For - Shocking facts about pet food. It's another must-have. An excerpt from the run-down on the contents is:

Sorry I hadn't replied here - never got a notification of a reply to this thread for some reason.

Yes, Hills.....don't get me started! ohmy.gif They were one of the first companies I'd heard about, waaaaay back, who'd used road-kill, all the slough from the slaughterhouse floors, the chaff from the grain, Ethoxyquin as a preservative (a cancer-causing chemical), and more gruesome stuff as their ingredients for pet food....VETERINARY-APPROVED, of course!! rolleyes.gif mad.gif And Proctor & of the single, WORST animal-testing companies in the world. The link isn't too surprising, is it?

"Oh, but we CARE about your pets!" Give me a break. You, Hills and P&G parent company, care about nothing but money, period. The poor animals are nothing but expendable, disposable means to your greedy end.

I always said, if even ONE person changes the course of their babies' lives for the better because of something I've done, I could die a happy soul, knowing I did make a difference in being here. So, Joanne, thanks for giving my soul a reason for being and doing a "happy dance"! wub.gif

And now I'm off to post yet another article link! biggrin.gif
