Maybe the army can use the dying dogs as decoys with bomb attached to them to fight the insurgents.
SOME PEOPLE HAVE WORTHLESS RELATIVES. THEY FIND PETS TO BE LOYAL AND DEVOTED.

I think you should volunteer for Afganistan and tell all the American soldiers that they should not get a little rainbow each time they think of thier pets at home.Have you ever seen the calmness when pets are brought into handicapped buidings or nursing homes or hospitals where it has been found patients to heal better and might also lessen the need for some pain medicine.What about hearing or seeing eye dogs and all of the ones that are trained for so many other helpful tasks police dogs may someday save your life or someone you love or find you when you're missing...All our pets deserve safe food and a giant pet food company that is honest.

If people start to die from a "food terrorist attack" I hope your name is the first on on the list.

I just recently Built a website where those who has suffered horrible losses or experiences with there pets due to the recent pet food recall are posting their stories. It is a great way for people to vent their problems, tell their stories and even post pictures of their pets. The food companies are NOT taking any responsibilty for this horrific nightmare we are all going through and maybe this website can make a difference. They forget, pets are a part of are family too. We need to hold them accountable.

with all this animal food recall does it include rabbit food? rabbits are also pets not just dog or cats. i bought some rabbit food from wallyworld and 3 days later my rabbit died. i will never buy rabbit food from wallyworld again.

all pet owners of all types of animals needs to keep close eye on their pets.

My rabbit, who was healthy, died suddenly a few weeks ago. My cat and two dogs are all ill. I cannot help but think that we are next, and I don't think that I am being paranoid.

FYI: I would be careful with the Diamond Dog food. It is manufactured by Diamond Pet Foods which recently sold tainted (melamine) food to Hog farms in California. Ask your local vet for some suggestions. Good Luck.

What kind of food was it that you gave your rabbit because I gave my rabbit and guinea pig food made by Kaytee and my rabbit got sick and wouldn't eat for a couple days. He's fine now but then my guinea pig died a week later.
