Popular brand pet food recall

by DePaolo Equine Concepts

Once again there is a salmonella scare in popular dog and cat food brands.  Although this is a just a precaution and no instances have been reported, the recall was issued for Eukanuba dry dog food, Iams dry dog foods and Iams dry cat foods.  According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 42,000 cases of salmonella in humans are reported in the U.S. annually, but that number could be grossly underreported. Symptoms in humans include diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal cramping, according to the CDC.

Symptoms commonly seen in dogs with salmonellosis include:

  • Fever
  • Shock
  • Lethargy
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Anorexia
  • Weight loss
  • Dehydration

If you suspect your dog or cat may have salmonella, contact your veterinarian immediately.  For the full information on this current recall, please click this link.
