How to Avoid Dog Food Contamination

Most people in America have at least one pet. Pets are a part of the family in many homes. The two most popular pets in America are the cat and the dog. For people who have dogs for pets, they know the feeling of being loved when they walk into the house. Dogs are always happy when their owner walks in the front door. Unlike cats, dogs will play with their owner until the owner gets tired. That is why people have dogs. Some dogs are so intelligent that they seem to know what the owner is telling them to do. So what happens when a dog becomes sick? Most people will wait a couple of days to see if the dog gets better. If they still seem sick, then people make an appointment with the vet that cares for their dog. In most cases it’s something that is treatable and the vet sends the dog home with a prescription. But what if the vet says that it’s serious and that bad dog food contamination is the reason for the dog having kidney failure?

In recent weeks there have been numerous stories on the news about dog food contamination. It can and does kill dogs that eat the tainted foods. People try to take care of their dogs while inadvertently slowly killing them. It can make people feel so helpless and angry about themselves even though they know they didn’t do anything on purpose.

More About Dog Food Contamination

When an owner finally gets the dog home from the vets office knowing that the dog is going to die, the owner might spend a few days with the dog before it is put down. The next step after the grieving process is to call the company of the dog food that fed their dog. One could also make copies of what the vet says happened and send it all to the brand of the dog food. Dog food contamination means that the dog food company is liable for the dog’s death. If the vet said that it was from dog food contamination and the company hasn’t gotten back to the owner, get an attorney and have them respond to the dog food maker. Unfortunately, it sometimes takes a letter from an attorney to get the ball rolling.

Finally, don’t despair about the situation. If the illness was caused by dog food contamination, it’s not the owners fault. While the owner will grieve for the circumstances of the dog’s death, there was no way to know that the food was bad. No amount of money will bring the dog back. Instead, remember all of the good times that one had together and smile. The future just might hold a little puppy!
