Kingsgurl: I just wanted to state that this is not quite accurate. PetSmart has a team on this at corporate and as soon as anything hits, the stores ARE notified.

For those of you who like to read more on this pet food fiasco, Macleans business story is very detailed in the role Menu Foods played in all this.

Well either this is the final company to release their recall, OR this is yet another company because not they say they were just told today to issue the recall. The FDA and Wilbur-Ellis have been claiming for over a week now that the other companies have been notified. Something is very up with thi...

Check with the shelter you adopted from and let us know what they say. At the very least they might get you their discounts at the vet's office Apply for the UAN Lifeline Grant - after you talk to the shelter so you have a better idea of which vet, etc. - they'll want to know all that and they pay t...
