We watch CNN all day whre I work and they just flashed this breaking news. They are saying there was rat poison in the contaminated food. I assume someone put it in the food...how else would it get in there. This makes me sick, especially since I had a close call. Last friday my pug started doing the reverse sneezing which is normal for pugs. But he kept having attacks all night, and we rushed him to the emergency vet at 12:30am. They said it was possible he just had a sore throat and possibly allergies. They wanted us to feed him soft food so it didn''t irritate his throat. We feed him IAMS hard food and were going to go in the morning to get him some of the iams soft food. Saturday morning he had a seizure, so we rushed him to our vet. They diagnosed it as epilepsy and did the blood work and some other tests. Everything came out OK, so they sent him home with us to keep an eye on him. When we got home I opened the internet to find the story about the pet food recall...and my heart sank when I saw IAMS on there. But I saw that it was only the wet food...so we were safe. My heart goes out to all the people that have lost their beloved pets. And to think that I could have lost mine if he didn''t have a seizure that morning. Sorry about the long post..I''m just upset that this could happen.
