Woman, dog both sick after eating recalled pet food

Woman, dog both sick after eating recalled pet food

OTTAWA - An woman says she became violently ill after eating some of her dog's food.

It's a case that could be related to the tainted pet food that has killed several dogs and cat's and sickened dozens more across in Canada and the United States.

Elaine Larabie tells the Ottawa Citizen that for three days she suffered symptoms that included loss of appetite, vomiting, foaming at the mouth and trouble urinating. She went to an emergency room on Tuesday and is now awaiting test results from blood work.

After noticing her dog, Missy, wasn't eating, Larabie said she took bites of Iams pet food in order to trick the terrier into thinking it was people food.

The ploy worked and the mealtime routine continued for about two weeks until both dog and master became sick on March 17.

It wasn't until she saw a TV news story about the Menu Foods recall that she became aware of a possible connection.

Last week, the Toronto-area company recalled 60 million cans and pouches of food made under 95 different brand names.

On Sunday, Menu Foods asked retailers to immediately remove all affected varieties of the company's wet pet food regardless of the date code.

The company said the request was made amid concerns that some recalled lots of "Cuts and Gravy" style wet pet food were still on store shelves.

The company said in a release Sunday there is no known risk from items not on the recall list, but an "abundance of caution" was called for.

Raw Meat

I don't understand why people just don't feed their pets raw food like they are supposed to eat. Sheesh

Raw beef is great for dogs. 1/2 beef and 1/2 oats. A great and healthy diet for dogs.
