Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

FYI

VOLUNTARY RECALL:
Pet Valu would like to inform all customers of a voluntary recall
issued moments ago by Nature's Variety concerning select Prairie Beef
Kibble. The product is not contaminated, however, due to an "off-odor"
smell, they feel the shelf life is not as long as anticipated. All
affected product is currently being removed from our shelves. If you
have any of the affected product, please return it to your local Pet Valu store. The affected products are:

PRODUCT SKU CODE DESCRIPTION

And yet another recall for treats made in china

http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2012/07/20/sweet-potato-dog-treats.aspx

It's about damn time. People have been bringing sick dogs and jerky/sweet potato treats made by these companies almost every day at the petsmarts I work. It's disgusting.

FWIW, nature's variety sources their Rabbit from China. Be careful, because I don't trust anything from china.

At Nature's Variety, our nutritional philosophy is to source the highest quality, safest, and most nutritious ingredients in the world. We look for our ingredients domestically first. In the case of rabbit meat, we've found that the best supply of high quality, human grade rabbit is found in China. Therefore, we are currently sourcing rabbit meat specifically for our raw and canned rabbit diets from a trusted supplier in China. To help ensure that our strict quality and safety standards are rigorously enforced, this rabbit meat is regularly inspected and monitored by the PhD food scientist we have on staff. Additionally, members of the Nature’s Variety leadership team have personally visited and inspected the facility in China. We also employ extra testing (at an independent lab in the United States) to ensure that the rabbit is nothing short of our strictest standards for quality and nutrition. - Directly from the website http://www.naturesvariety.com/learning/questions/5

Beware of Milo's Kitchen dog treats, my boyfriend's sister's Boxer is 2 years old and has kidney failure, but was very healthy. These are still on the shelves so please be careful of what you buy.
