Do You Know What Iams, Meow Mix, Fancy Feast And Others Are Doing?

  OCEANS-SLAVES-02-master1050

This article is from http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/27/world/outlaw-ocean-thailand-fishing-sea-slaves-pets.html and is quite disturbing. The Mars, Inc. company has plans to use only non-threatened fish caught legally or raised on farms and certified by third-party auditors as not being linked to forced labor by 2020. Hmmm...plans by 2020? It's 2015 and why can't you stop now?

With all the takeovers from large pet food companies you might be shocked to find out what dog and cat food brands are under the Mars, Inc. umbrella. You can find them at http://www.mars.com/global/brands/petcare.aspx Nestle is another mentioned in this article and the dog and cat food brands under their umbrella can be found at http://www.nestle.com/brands/petcare

Here are 2 excerpts from the article:

"In the past year, Thai Union has shipped more than 28 million pounds of seafood-based cat and dog food for some of the top brands sold in America including Iams, Meow Mix and Fancy Feast, according to United States Customs documents.

The United States is the biggest customer of Thai fish, and pet food is among the fastest growing exports from Thailand, more than doubling since 2009 and last year totaling more than $190 million. The average pet cat in the United States eats 30 pounds of fish per year, about double that of a typical American."

and

"Lisa K. Gibby, vice president of corporate communications for Nestlé, which makes pet food brands including Fancy Feast and Purina, said that the company is working hard to ensure that forced labor is not used to produce its pet food. “This is neither an easy nor a quick endeavor,” she added, because the fish it purchases comes from multiple ports and fishing vessels operating in international waters.

Some pet food companies are trying to move away from using fish. Mars Inc., for example, which sold more than $16 billion worth of pet food globally in 2012, roughly a quarter of the world’s market, has already replaced fishmeal in some of its pet food and will continue in that direction. By 2020, the company plans to use only non-threatened fish caught legally or raised on farms and certified by third-party auditors as not being linked to forced labor."

Makes you feel good about feeding these brands...doesn't it?


Symptoms Your Dog Or Cat May Have Urinary Tract Illness

Girl hugging dog

Urinary tract infections in people are fairly straight forward. Sufferers  experience pain during urination or a frequent urge to go that is a false alarm.  For us humans, going to the doctor is usually the next step, whereupon a course  of antibiotics is prescribed which usually resolves the problem. Unfortunately, urinary tract infections for dogs and cats aren’t often a simple matter. These  infections oftentimes have underlying causes, such as urinary stones, anatomical  abnormalities, incontinence, hormonal conditions, stress or even cancer, any of  which can contribute to recurrent disease. To ascertain just what’s causing your  pet kid’s urinary tract issues really does require the expertise of your  veterinarian. Urinary tract conditions can be painful and debilitating, and it  is important to detect the signs early for the best chance of solving the  problem.

Traditional veterinarians like to focus on infection as a cause, and treat  with an antibiotic. Antibiotics can cure or eliminate symptoms, whether by  killing the bacteria or acidifying the urine. Sometimes, however, this course of  treatment doesn’t represent a final answer, unless a culture tells otherwise.  For me, as a holistic veterinarian, I look at every aspect of the problem.  Urinary tract syndromes are caused by many things and other parts of the body  need to be supported, too. For example, stress can cause urinary symptoms by its  affect on hormone production.

The good news is that the signs of urinary problems are fairly obvious in  both dogs and cats. Take your pet kid to the veterinarian if you notice any of  the following symptoms …

• Out-of-character elimination in the home that is, failure to maintain expected house or litter-box training

• A dog who asks to go outside more often or a cat making excessive trips the  litter box

• repeatedly assuming the posture to pee but very little is produced

• blood-tinged urine • excessive licking ‘back there’

• excessive drinking, panting and/or obvious discomfort

It is helpful to bring a fresh sample of urine to your vet’s office, which  can be tested for the presence of white blood cells, protein, crystals and  bacteria. Your veterinarian will examine your dog and may recommend additional  testing, such as a urine culture, blood work and x-rays, especially if this is a  recurring problems.

If tests reveal crystals in the urine, then there is a possibility of urinary  stones in the bladder or kidney. Some crystals/stones (struvite) can be  dissolved simply by changing to a prescription diet, while other crystals  (calcium oxalate) are more troublesome. For some cases of urinary stones,  surgery may be the only option.

Cats can develop stress cystitis, similar to a condition in human females. In  felines, the condition is commonly referred to FLUTD (feline lower urinary tract  disease) or FIC (feline interstitial cystitis). FIC appears to be a complex  condition unique to indoor kitties that involves the urinary, adrenal and  neurological systems.

New studies show that environmental enrichment can lower the incidence of feline lower urinary tract disease. If your cat is predisposed to this  condition, consider implementing the following improvements:

• Scoop litter box daily, sanitize weekly and provide one more box than the  number of cats in the household

• keep litter boxes in a quiet area, away from foot traffic

• provide multiple sources of fresh water and consider using a fountain

• feed a high quality diet, usually a combination of canned and dry food

• have multiple cat trees and hiding spots in order to increase the available vertical space for the cats

• increase petting, grooming and play activities that simulate hunting (i.e. toss kibble, feathered fishing pole, laser pointer)

• utilize feline pheromone spray (Feliway)

• consider use of anxitane or zylkene, herbal supplements to reduce stress (your  veterinarian can tell you more about the available options)

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a human, a cat or a dog … urinary tract  problems are no fun. Hopefully, with the information provided above, and with  the valuable consultation of your trusted veterinarian, a quick and effective  solution to your pet kid’s problems is well within reach.

Thank you for all you do to make the world a better place for companion animals.

Dr Jane Foundation Grant Award Feeds Michigan Cats

 

Family sitting with cat

It’s time once again for an update from our charitable wing, The Dr. Jane  Foundation. This month, we’re excited to share news of another financial award  to an amazing group of caregivers based in Highland, MI. Founded in late 2004,  Community Sharing is an outreach organization that provides support and food  assistance to hundreds of families and their companion animals.

Unlike the majority of our grant recipients, this caring non-profit is not a  rescue shelter or a foster network. That being said, their efforts not only  ensure the survival of dogs and cats, but their happiness as well. In addition  to pet food and care products, Community Sharing provides people with clothing,  school tutoring, GED completion aid, budgeting assistance, employment counseling  and much more. This full-scale support makes it possible for families in  desperate need to stay together. And for many of their families, that certainly  means keeping their pet kids at home, where they belong.

Doing their level best to keep up with the needs of their community, this  agency has seen first-hand the emotional wreckage of surrendering a companion  animal. For individuals without close family, who only share their home with a  pet kid, the mere prospect of losing their dog or cat due to financial hardship  is heartbreaking enough, and can be a real source of chronic stress. But thanks  to Community Sharing’s diligence and caring, the stress can be relieved, and  these relationships maintained. It’s just another way this group aids their  clients and helps them to deal with life’s challenges.

The vast majority of their aid recipients include the recently unemployed and  the working poor. The number of clients who come to Community Sharing each month  fluctuates, so the number of families with pet kids they feed varies from month  to month. Overseen by a board of 14 members and operated by a several dozen  volunteers, Community Sharing provides support to hundreds of families and  individuals every month. Through their Client Choice Food Pantry, they provide  individuals and companion animals with enough food for 20 days per month. In  just over a decade of service, nearly 200,000 meals have been provided!

In an average month, they serve 142 pet families with a total of 345 pets  every month ... altogether, that’s 158 dogs and 187 cats who benefit from  Community Sharing’s food assistance programs!

Thanks to the generous support of others, their supply of dog food was  already well-stocked for this time of year. Therefore, our entire financial  award went towards feeding cats. Our most recent round of funding will provide  four months’ worth of meals for all 187 cats currently living with Community  Sharing families.

Upon learning about April’s financial assistance from The Dr. Jane Foundation, Grant Manager Linda Anderson said, “We are thrilled with this award and will judiciously use these funds to buy and provide food for our client’s  pets.” She added, “Without support like this, clients would not be able to keep  and feed their pets.”

From all of us here at Life’s Abundance headquarters, we deeply appreciate  and respect the extraordinary example this committed network of rescuers sets  for all Americans … extending helping hands to neighbors in need. Along with our  financial award, we’d like to convey our heartfelt thanks to Community Sharing  for doing their utmost to make the world a kinder, gentler place for people and  pet kids alike.

And we thank all readers and customers … through your personal donations and  continued patronage, you’ve helped make all of our grants possible. Your  generosity and loyalty have helped to make the world a better place for  abandoned, abused and neglected animals across America.


How to Help a Fearful or Aggressive Dog

Sometimes, dogs behave badly. Going nuts when there’s a knock at the door. Over-reacting to the tiniest of threats. Freaking out over having their nails trimmed. Worst of all, if the proper steps aren’t taken early on, behaviors like anxiety and aggression can become the norm, rather than one-off instances.

In this episode of Pet Talk, Dr. Sarah and her canine assistant, Alma, demonstrate two effective training techniques that can be used to overcome unpleasant reactive canine behaviors. We’ll be covering the topics of desensitization and counter-conditioning, plus why it’s important to set realistic goals. And above all, try to have fun whenever you’re training … your dog will thank you for it.

Signs Your Pet Kid Has A Hormonal Problem

 

Dog and cat laying on a blus couch

Pet parents postpone vet visits for all manner of reasons. Some fear what the  veterinarian will find during the examination, while others worry about the  costs. Regardless of the reasons for not keeping an appointment, the advantages  of regular check-ups simply cannot be understated … especially if you’ve been  noticing something different about your pet kid.

Has your dog’s weight ballooned over the past year? Or perhaps you’ve noticed  that your cat drinks more water than is typical … not only that, she’s actually  lost weight. Or, there are no kitty symptoms aside from non-stop meowing at  night. What many don’t realize is that unexpected changes in weight and eating  or drinking habits are all signs to keep that appointment with your  veterinarian. These are some of the common signs of feline and canine hormonal  abnormality.

Just like humans, our pets’ health and well-being are governed by their  endocrine system, a complex collection of glands and chemical messengers that  control everything from hair growth to metabolism. Also just like people, pets  can experience hormonal issues that may lead to more significant problems.

So what are the top signs that your pet might be suffering from a hormonal  problem?

1. Hair Loss

Your pet’s lustrous hair is getting thin. For dogs, this is especially true  for the trunk and tail. For cats, you’ll notice it first on the tips of their  ears. Hair loss can be a sign of abnormal thyroid levels, either low or high, or  even an early indicator of Cushing’s Syndrome. We’ll talk more about this  disease in a moment, which results from abnormally high levels of cortisol, a  hormone secreted by the adrenal gland.

2. Weight Gain

Stubborn fat that can’t be shed even with a strict diet. Unfortunately,  this too could be a sign of Cushing’s Syndrome or hypothyroidism. Companion  animals with Cushing’s also can have a pot belly despite being very active,  whereas pet kids with low thyroid function tend to be sluggish and seem  exhausted.

3. Sudden Weight Loss

It’s alarming when your pet kid eats with a voracious appetite, but is still  losing weight. This could be a sign of abnormally high thyroid levels (usually  in cats) or diabetes mellitus in either species.

4. Increased Thirst and Urination

As you might imagine, increased thirst and urination can be a sign of kidney  problems. But it can also be a sign of several hormonal disorders, including  hyperthyroidism, Cushing’s Syndrome and diabetes mellitus.

5. Other Symptoms:

Changes in appetite Increased panting Agitation and nervousness Changes in energy level

All of these are signs that something might be awry, and your dog or cat  needs a full checkup right away. Your veterinarian will ask you some questions,  examine your pet and usually recommend lab work. Most hormonal conditions are  easily diagnosed with blood work or urine analysis, and fortunately, most  conditions can be controlled with supplements or medication. As with most  diseases, early detection is essential to successful treatment or control of the  problem.

Now that we’ve covered what symptoms you need to be aware of, let’s take a  closer look at some of the most common hormonal conditions in dogs and cats.

Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism is much more common in dogs than cats. It is caused by an  underactive thyroid gland, and symptoms include low energy, weight gain, hair  loss, even neurological dysfunction. It is treated with a thyroid supplement and  therapy is a life-long commitment.

Cushing’s Syndrome

Equally common in dogs and cats, Cushing’s Syndrome is due to an overactive  adrenal gland secreting too much cortisol. Common signs include increased  drinking, excess urination, increased appetite, weight gain and hair loss.  Cushing’s is diagnosed with blood work and sometimes abdominal ultrasound.  Treatment is achieved with a medication that is used to decrease cortisol  secretion or surgery to remove a tumor on the adrenal gland.

Hyperthyroidism

Hyperthyroidism is seen primarily in cats, and is due to an overactive  thyroid. Signs include increased appetite, weight loss, increased thirst and  urination, hair loss and agitation. The condition can be treated with a  medication to decrease thyroid hormone, surgery to remove a thyroid tumor, or  possibly radioactive iodine.

Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes is caused by decreased insulin or insulin resistance (Type 2,  primarily due to obesity) which leads to increased blood sugar levels. Signs  include weight loss, increased appetite, increased thirst and urination. This is  a serious condition if it remains untreated … severe cases can lead to coma or  even death. Treatment is with insulin injections and supervised weight loss.

Addison’s Syndrome

In many respects, Addison’s is the opposite of Cushing’s. It’s caused by an  underactive adrenal gland. The symptoms are usually severe, include vomiting,  diarrhea, lethargy and possibly even coma. Addison’s is diagnosed with blood  work and urine analysis, and the standard treatment is with hormone replacement  therapy. These patients are often very dehydrated when they are first seen by  veterinarians, which may necessitate hospitalization and intravenous fluids.

How can I prevent hormonal problems in my dog or cat?

New research is actively being done to determine the causes of hormonal  conditions in dogs and cats. One promising area of research is in the effects of  early spay/neuter surgeries. Veterinarians are studying what changes these  alterations have on the endocrine system of our companion animals.

Always feed your dog or cat the robust nutrition offered by premium quality food. Pet parents should consider providing a food supplement to support  health and overall well-being as well.

Make sure your companion animal receives an annual veterinary exam. If your  pet kid has achieved senior status, annual blood work and urine analysis play  key roles in early detection, before medical issues become full-blown problems.

Thank you for all you do to make the world a better place for companion animals.

Nestle Purina PetCare To Purchase Merrick And Castor Pollux Pet Food

Purina is buying Merrick Dog Food - http://www.petfoodindustry.com/articles/5286-nestle-purina-petcare-to-purchase-merrick

People that feed Merrick and ORGANIX will most likely never know the change and that Purina is now behind their food. Merrick has also had a number of recalls and now those all go under away because of new owners. It's a great "fresh start." Interesting :)

Merrick-LogoMerrick Pet Care has signed an agreement for Nestle Purina PetCare Co to purchase the company from its private equity owner, Swander Pace Capital. Terms were not disclosed.

With SuperZoo as the back drop, Merrick Founder Garth Merrick said, “I believe Nestlé Purina is the right company to take what I, along with others, have built to the next level. I’m proud my name will continue to be on the door as we remain committed to making the best food for the best pets ever.”

Merrick is one of the fastest-growing natural and organic pet food companies in the industry, and will continue to operate as an independent business with no planned changes to its management or operations.

Merrick has more than 350 employees located primarily in Hereford, Texas, USA; Amarillo, Texas, USA; and Evanston, Illinois, USA.

With this agreement, which is expected to close over the next several months, Merrick will be able to further build upon its record of providing pets with industry leading nutrition, quality and food safety, while taking advantage of new global resources and innovations.

“The Merrick team has built an extremely strong portfolio of natural and organic pet food and treat brands that are helping millions of pets thrive,” said Joe Sivewright, CEO of Nestlé Purina PetCare. “We admire Merrick and what the team is doing to provide pets with nutritious, quality and safe food and are excited about how the Merrick brands will broaden the Purina portfolios.

Merrick offers a wide variety of USA-made dry and wet foods, as well as treats, that are available nationally at independent pet specialty stores, Petco, and online via select retailers. In April 2012, Merrick Pet Care Inc. acquired Castor & Pollux and its ORGANIX branded portfolio. These brands are available at PetSmart, natural grocery, and online via select retailers.

How To Reduce Household Stress On Your Dog Or Cat

Effects Of Household Stress On Your Pets

Sleeping Dog

Like children, pet kids are susceptible to changes in family dynamics. Sometimes, stress can cause them to act out in unexpected ways. Changes in the household, such as separation and ‘empty nest syndrome’, can be particularly painful for companion animals. A dog has every reason to believe that their pack (humans and canines alike) will remain intact. When one member essentially ‘disappears’, it can lead to significant pet stress. 

The study of behavior in companion animals, and how they handle stress, is a  rapidly developing field, most extensively in the lives of military dogs. Just  like their human-soldier counterparts, after combat duty, canines have  demonstrated clear symptoms of PTSD. Some estimates indicate that more than 5%  of the approximately 650 military dogs deployed by American combat forces have  been diagnosed with canine PTSD.

Much like human PTSD sufferers, not all dogs exhibit the same degree of  symptoms. Some dogs have drastic changes in temperament, ultimately becoming  aggressive, clingy or timid. Some become hyper-vigilant which can increase  anxiety. Others will actively avoid situations in which they were previously  comfortable … like the tasks they were trained to perform, often resulting in  their retirement from military service.

Companion animals living in households going through separation or the loss  of a family member can be similarly traumatized. They can develop separation  anxiety, personality changes and depression. Consequently, they may manifest  negative behaviors, such as destruction, timidity or aggression. Pet anxiety can  be expressed in a variety of ways, including pacing, panting, whining,  destruction, loss of appetite, digging, chewing and excessive barking. The sad  fact is that pet kids may be more traumatized by the sudden departure of a  family member because they have no way of being prepared for the change.

Another unfortunate outcome of changing human relational dynamics is  relinquishment. I know that many vets have received calls from newly separated  couples who see no other option than to end their relationship with their dog or  cat as well.

If you or someone you know is facing challenging times that could affect a  pet negatively, here are some tips to minimize the impact and thus reduce the  stress on your furry family member.

For Separation

Even though the loss of a pet during separation can be more heart-wrenching  than losing money or material belongings, dogs and cats are still considered  property in the eyes of the law.

If retaining guardianship of your pet kid means the world to you, consider  giving up something valuable, such as a car or cash, to gain full custody. If  both sides refuse to budge on custody, draft a visitation plan you both can live  with. Take into account post-separation schedules and living situations to  determine who is better suited to be the primary caretaker. That individual must  agree to completely care for the pet’s needs and make sure vaccinations are  up-to-date and other medical care is provided.

If you are considering the possibility of relinquishing your dog or cat, try  to remember that things will inevitably get better. Chances are that you will be  happier with your pet in the long run. We all know that they can be reliable  sources of comfort during rough times.

For Empty Nesters

Consider preventive measures before a grown child flies the coop for college. If your pet kids are accustomed to someone always being home, but will soon have to spend periods alone, schedule brief outings for yourself (anywhere from 15-60 minutes). These ritual changes can help ease a pet into the upcoming transition. Wake up a bit earlier to give yourself time to play with your schedule, to see what might fit your new routine best.

Once your child has gone, make time in the morning to either take your dog for a walk or play with your dog. Either activity will mentally stimulate and physically exhaust your dog so that more time will be spent resting when you have to leave the house. Make departures as low-key as possible. When it’s time to go, adopt the attitude that it’s really no big deal, and quietly leave.

Before leaving, stuff a treat-safe toy with food or a tasty snack. For a dog,  try a smart toy that dispenses treats or kibble. For cats, no toy is required,  simply hide treats at various locations throughout the house.

There are several over-the-counter products created to help lower stress in  companion animals. For severe cases, there are a few options available with a  prescription, such as Clomicalm, Reconcile and Xanax. These medications can help  with animals that are suffering from anxieties that can’t be addressed by  behavior therapy alone.

Regardless of the scenario, talk to your veterinarian about what will work  best for your pet kid, given your unique situation.

Thank you for all you do to make the world a better place for companion animals.

Top 10 Reasons Your Dog Or Cat Should Take Fish Oil

 

Friends

Fish oil supplements are an ideal complement to your pet’s diet because they  supply omega-3 fatty acids, which your dog or cat’s body cannot sufficiently  produce on its own. Still in doubt? Here are the top 10 reasons why it’s  important to supplement your dog or cat’s daily intake with a quality fish oil  supplement.

1. Your Pet Will Burn Fat More Efficiently

The Omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil supplements help improve the metabolism  of a dog and cat’s body in a natural way and cause body fat to burn more  quickly. (2,10)

2. Improved Development of Puppies & Kittens During Pregnancy

During a pregnancy, supply your canine or feline mama omega-3 needs with a  pure, safe fish oil supplement. The reason is because the omega-3 fatty acid DHA  helps improve brain development, concentration, immunity and eyesight, among  other things. (1,5)

3. Slow Down Your Pet’s Aging Process

We all want to age more slowly, right? EPA and DHA found in fish oil help  slow down the aging process by reducing inflammation and extending the longevity  of cells. In this way, omega-3s help keep your pet kids feeling younger for  longer. (3)

4. Improved Flexibility

Because of the anti-inflammatory properties of EPA from fish oil supplements,  the discomfort in your pet’s joints and muscles may actually decrease. What you  will notice is that over time, fish oil supplements can help with stiffness to  rise and help your pet be more active and enjoy walks and games with you. (4)

5. Improved Performance in Canine Athletes

Omega-3s in fish oil supplements improve the functioning of the lungs. For  our active agility dogs, runners, Frisbee dogs, swimmers and mountain hiker  companions, fish oil will help your dog keep up with you. (14)

6. Better Concentration & Limiting Brain Cell Deterioration

Thanks to EPA and DHA from fish oil, your pet’s brain may age more slowly and  perform optimally. The essential fatty acids in the omega-3s contribute to  sounder sleep, an essential element in keeping concentration sharp. (6)

7. Optimized Immune System Functioning

A daily supplement of omega-3s from fish oil supplements help the white blood  cells perform their anti-inflammatory function optimally. This helps your pet’s  defense against diseases and other ailments by strengthening the immune system.  (15)

8. Better Heart Health

The omega-3s in fish oil supplements help keep cholesterol levels at a  healthy level and help keep this vital muscle healthy. (8,9)

9. No More Grumpy Cat

Fish oil supplements are proven to improve mood in humans, and studies are  forthcoming about their benefits in pets! (12, 13)

10. Healthy Skin & Shiny Coat

The benefits of omega-3s in fish oil supplements for skin health are well  documented, but did you know that omega-3s also help protect against sunburn?  (6,7)

Adding health-promoting fish oil to your pet’s diet can be one of the best decisions you make for your companion animal. If you want to learn more, visit the website!

Thank you for all you do to make the world a better place for companion animals.

4th Of July Safety Tips For Your Dog

Every red-blooded American can tell you that Independence Day celebrations are loud, bright, off-the-hook salutes to freedom. Wherever there are fireworks, you can expect loads of noise. Only, for dogs, this annual event is less a matter of patriotic partying and more like pant-inducing petrification.

The sounds and smells of Fourth of July festivities, to the keen hearing of canines coupled with their acute sense of smell, make for a potentially horrifying experience. Especially considering that celebrations begin shortly after dark and can last for hours. And possibly, be repeated for two or three nights running.

From elaborate stadium displays to small neighborhood gatherings, fireworks can be absolutely terrifying for canines. Heartbreakingly, some dogs have even been known to die as a result of fear-induced trauma and shock. So, what can we do as pet parents to protect our precious pups from outsize fear?

This episode of Pet Talk gives you all the information you need to help prepare your pet kid for the upcoming holiday. Dr. Sarah not only provides tips for helping to begin desensitizing your pup now, as well as behaviors and symptoms to be on the lookout for when the fireworks start ‘bursting in air’.
