This recall does not affect Iverhart Max products.

According to a Virbac letter obtained by Pet360, testing revealed that fourteen lots were below Ivermectin potency levels prior to their expiration. The company also notes that the other seventeen lots remain within specification, but are being recalled as a precautionary measure.

For questions or concerns about the Iverhart Plus recall, please contact Virbac Technical Services at 1-800-338-3659 ext. 3052. http://www.petmd.com/news/alerts-recalls/nws-dg-virbac-expands-recall-iverhart-plus-flavored-chewables#.UhaOlj_WHIU

 

The Virbac website did not provide a notice regarding this recall. The FDA website provided the following two Enforcement Reports (see below – reports dated week of July 3, 2013) for this recall – but no recall press release was available on the FDA website. This is most likely due to the classification of this recall (Class III) being not life threatening.

Four Paws: Pet Food Maker Royal Canin Sponsoring Bear-Baiti​ng

I am not a fan of Royal Canin and this is absolutely terrible! As you may have heard Royal Canin is now putting by-products in their foods and feather meal. Here they are sponsoring Bear-Baiting!

Animal welfare organisation Four Paws is charging popular  French manufacturer of dog and cat food, Royal Canin, with sponsoring brutal and  illegal bear-baiting in the Ukraine.

The organization explained that it obtained video of one  bear-baiting contest that took place in April 2013 near Vinnytsia, Ukraine.  The video shows a chained brown bear  unable to escape as two to three dogs are set upon it at approximately 10-minute  intervals. 'During the competition, the bear's movements are controlled by three  men yanking on its chain to restrict the animal's response. The panicked bear,  unable to mount a defense, frantically begins to foam at the mouth. Off to the  side, a referee awards points to each dog's owner.  Dr. Amir Khalil, vet and project leader  at Four Paws, says this can go on for hours, until the bear is left unable to  fight.

Read the rest of the article and watch this disturbing video - http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/354979

If you are currently using Royal Canin you may want to think twice before purchasing your next bag of food.

P&G Voluntarily Recalls Iams And Eukanuba Dog And Cat Food Due To Potential Salmonella

They had a recall in 2010 and here is a new one....

If you feed your pets Iams or Eukanuba, you might want to check the bags.

Parent company Proctor & Gamble is recalling certain lots of Iams and Eukanuba dog food, and Iams cat food, because the bags were possibly contaminated with salmonella.

P&G says the lots represent .1 percent of total production, but they are removing the bags from the shelves as a precaution.

Not only could tainted food be harmful to the pets, it could be harmful to the people who feed their pets.

P&G said on its website:

"Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian."

Consumers should stop feeding their pets the food and call P&G at 1-800-208-0172, Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET.
