Palm City, Florida – When the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County issued a public plea for assistance, after their dog population doubled in a single day, a company headquarted in Palm City stepped up to the plate … literally.

Wysong Not Happy Over Recent Criticism About Dog Food Recall

A few days ago I posted the recall from Wysong on their Senior and Maintenance Dog Food.

Wysong has issued an additional statement on their blog on their reasons for doing this and even posted some comments they found on the web. In reading their information, I did have an issue with this statement - "What is missed here is that we keep thorough records pertaining to who receives what products. Accordingly,... Read more →

42-inch Dog in Arizona Puts 'Great' in Great Dane

WOW! I read this story and am very happy for George and his owner Dave Nasser and at that size they should get the record. However, when I read 4 lbs of poo I wondered what George was eating.

Ugh ANOTHER Nutro Recall - This Time It's Puppy Food!

I just heard that Nutro issued a voluntary recall of some of their puppy foods. It makes me shake my head ..... again .... that this company still hasn't taken extreme quality control measures to prevent recalls. This time the recall is due to plastic pieces in the food. Here's the even funnier part - Nutro is calling it a voluntary retrieval instead of recall. Call it what it is - just another cover up from a brand who thinks they are a premium pet food. Here is the info... Read more →
