Two Words,

LIFE'S ABUNDANCE and you'll never worry about recalls. Not sold in stores made fresh shipped in one day shipping $8 food not that expensive. $8 plus a few cents for piece of mine. Do you really think these big Corps care about pets they don't about people why would they care about pets.

This is outrageous what's going on with our pets food. Our trust in our choice of foods to give to our pets would hope it's safe for them to consume. Luckily none of these foods have been given to my pet. But back in early of 06 I just wonder shortly after we have had this outbreak of contamined food and I wonder when I look back did I feed him something that was bad. To think that I could have been poisoning my dog makes me sick. We was an elder black lab in great health right up until about two weeks before I let him go. He was in kidney failure. Considering his age almost 13 I decided it was time. But to think if it was the food that I was feeding him the short time I had left with him anyway could have gave me a few more months or perhaps another year with him. But I will never know will I?

Hello, I have 10 of my own cats and i do not buy any of the brands on the recall list , i can only hope the brand i do use will never make that list.As an animal lover my heart goes out to those who have lost their pets they truly are our babies. God bless you all and remember God works in ways we will never know and the guilty ones will get caught. Take care all pet lovers.

I think it is very good, it is scarey to read about what could have happened to my cat.
I buy science diet and I had faith in it but now I wonder.
Cat channel thank you for the updates.
It is appreciated.
