The end of pet food


We are approaching the end of pet food. I am now in my 50th year as a veterinarian and nutritionist, The pet food industry has had warnings after warning, recall after recall and still there is no end in sight to the greed it has shown to our innocent pets that are forced to eat food that no human being would ever taste, less have to live on.

Or is it the greed of the consumer who buys this junk pet food made of dead, disabled, dying and diseased animals?  Many of these animals are euthanized (killed) by drugs containing controlled substances. Because they are now dead, the toxic, lethal narcotic is not metabolized, but is present in the body of the animal when it is processed into guess what, pet food! The deadly toxic narcotic Phenobarbital and Pentobarbital are not destroyed by cooking.  When a pet eats the food with these killer substances it becomes toxic to the pet and in time destroys the organs of the pet like any toxin does.

Sometimes the toxic food causes an acute illness and sudden death. Sometimes it just wears down the liver, kidneys, gut and immune system, leading to a slow deterioration, chronic disease, and organ failure. This all leads to the same result: death.

Why is this not allowed in human food? Because human food is inspected by federal inspectors. Anything that the inspectors find harmful is labeled not for human consumption. So where do they put this harmful trash, such as infected tissue, poisonous blood, tumors organs like lungs, livers and kidneys, mountainous piles of moldy old corn, soybeans, and sugar beets, stale, sugar laden pies and cakes, old bread and other old bakery and out of date by-products?  Not to mention the tons of leftovers from the production of beer and liquor fermentation. All of this which is piled up for sale along with rejected vegetables of all kinds. This is then auctioned off for the cheap pickings of greedy pet food suppliers to be sold to penny pinching pet food makers. Again, all of these boxes and containers are supposed to be labeled not for human consumption.Good luck!

So there is the reason that pet food manufacturers don't have inspectors. You don't need an inspector to inspect garbage. If you were to force an inspector with some bureaucratic ruling to pass this crap then he/she would either quit, or join the fate of those desperate individuals in the veterinary profession who through disappointment have chosen a far more drastic alternative.It is said that veterinarian medicine has 4x the suicide rate than any other division of the medical professions. That is indeed a desperate alternative and my sympathy and love goes out to them.
