Putting Our Cats At Risk…

What if your found out that the food you’ve been

buying from your veterinarian is bad for your cat?

Read the following report to find out about that high-priced, vet recommended cat food.

Exposé! – Hill’s® Prescription Diet™ & Science Diet™

Exposé! – Royal Canin® Veterinary Range™ & Cat Nutrition Range™

The following is my opinion: “Veterinarians Nationwide are doing a disservice to Cat and Dog caregivers by endorsing and selling substandard pet food while promoting it as something special.” – Doug Hines, publisher of CatNewsHeadlines.com.

It’s a cycle. They knowingly or unknowingly convince you to feed your animal below average food, your pet suffers the consequences, and your vet bills eventually pile up.

Putting Our Cats At Risk…

WOULD YOU KNOWINGLY FEED YOUR CAT MSBC??

(MENADIONE SODIUM BISULFITE COMPLEX)

Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex is a cheap and artificial form of Vitamin K that can interfere with glutathione resulting in oxidative damage to a cat’s cell membranes. The ScienceLab Material Safety Data Sheet states: “The substance is toxic to kidneys, lungs, liver, and mucous membranes. Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage.” MSBC is most certainly detrimental to your cat’s long-term health.

MSBC is in over 564 wet, canned cat food varieties

made by these companies:

• 9-Lives® • Adore®   • Almo Nature®   • Artemis®   • AvoDerm®   • Beyond®

• BFF®   • Canidae®   • Cats in the Kitchen®   • Classic Cat®   • Crave®

• Deckhand®   • Dr. Elsey’s®   • Earthborn Holistic®   • Fancy Feast®   • Friskies®

• Fussie Cat®   • Grandma Mae’s Country Naturals®   • Health Extension®   • Hill’s®

• Holistic®   • Iams®   • I Luv My Cat®   • Koha®   • Love, Nala®   •Meow Mix®

• Miko®   • Mio9®   • Muse®   • My Little Lion®   • Natural Balance®   • Nutrisca®

• NutriSource®   • Nutro®   • Perfect Portions®   • Petite Cuisine®   • Proplan®

• Pure Adore®   • Pure Wild®   • PureVita®   • Purina®   • Perfect Bistro®

• Rachael Ray®   • Redbarn Filets®   • Scrumptious From Scratch®   • Sheba®

• Solid Gold®   • Soulistic®   • Tiki Cat®   • Truluxe® (Weruva®)   • Under the Sun®

• VeRUS®   • Wellness®   • Whiskas®   • Wild Frontier®   • Pure Cravings®

How long have these cat food manufacturers known

about MSBC? Why haven’t they pulled their products?

Since there are alternatives for pet food makers to use, it makes you wonder why some put our pets at risk. You have the power to stop this madness before it’s too late for your cat(s). Stop buying products containing Menadione Sodium Bisulfate Complex!

Are these companies “influenced” to use MSBC?

THIS IS IMPORTANT… Are cat food manufacturers “obliged” to use this ingredient in their relationship with the Association of American Feed Control Officials – ‘AAFCO’? Are cat food manufacturers so weak that they cannot say NO, and include MSBC in their products even though it is widely recognized as detrimental to a cat’s long-term health?

What benefit does the AAFCO receive by pushing MSBC? Is the AAFCO equally to blame for this horrid situation? Should this questionable interrelationship be of concern to pet owners?

Putting Our Cats At Risk…

What about domestic cats ingesting micro plastics?

Posted in PoC on Sept 22,2021 by Michael Broad

There is so much plastic waste on the planet, and

it has been there so long…

If adult humans consume between 39,000 – 52,000 micro plastic particles per year (I am not speculating, see study), and if infants have more micro plastic particles in their feces than adults, what about cats and dogs?

How many micro plastic particles are cats consuming or breathing in per year?

Putting Our Cats At Risk…

Is microchipping cats safe? The answer is… mostly, but there are exceptions.

It is a huge myth, perpetrated by most veterinarians, that microchips are ‘totally’ safe. There are risks involved that you need to know before you make the decision to microchip your cat(s).

I suggest you read this study in Veterinary Dermotology: ‘Microchip-associated fibrosarcoma in a cat.’ Purchase the PDF access for the full report.

Cat parents/guardians/caregivers must ask themselves, “Is the reward worth the risk?”

Putting Our Cats At Risk…

This story stinks of industry spin worse than onions and garlic.

Is it worth the risk?

The following story at PetfoodIndustry.com caught my eye, and I believe it stinks worse than onions and garlic. The story titled “Onions and garlic offer flavor in the right amounts” puts an industry spin on subject potentially deadly for cats (and maybe for dogs as well). The subtitle is “These herbs have been associated with a number of health benefits for humans and pets, but only at small levels for dogs or cats.”

It is only when their spin machine is in full cycle that the article tells the truth. Four paragraphs into the story the authors finally say… “onions and/or garlic can lead to anemia and ultimately death”.

All the evidence I have ever read states that garlic and onions (as well as shallots, leeks, chives, and Chinese onions) can be INCREDIBLY TOXIC to cats and can lead to anemia, organ damage and/or failure, and even death.And unbelievable as it may seem, these are ingredients in cat foods produced today!

I think PetfoodIndustry.com is prostituting itself in spinning such a story. When does a pet food manufacturer cross the line and add too much of a bad ingredient to their product? When it comes to my pet’s health and life, why would I want to take any risk at all – no matter the percentage of risk?

Spinning for pet food manufacturers is a poor use of PetfoodIndustry.com’s time.

You can read their story here, but you may need to be a PFI member before you can access it.
