I can’t seem to keep up with all of the different foods that have been contaminated with Melamine. I think what this crisis has shown us, more than anything else, is that most dog food manufacturers are relatively the same and treat our dogs as not being worthy of truly good nutrition. Makes you want to cook your own food. At the very least, find a place that is made in the U.S. that offers a balanced diet.
The ASPCA has a very comprehensive list of foods that have been recalled. If you click on the manufacturer, they will often tell you that they are doing something about fixing this problem. If they don’t, they are setting us up for another round of sick dogs. Click here for the ASPCA list of recalled foods.
I’m currently feeding Pinnacle and also feeding some other fresh foods. If I weren’t so lazy, I would prepare all of my dog’s meals myself. I also just got a fun dog-human cookbook. The Dog Ate It: Cooking for Yourself and Your Four-Legged Friends. I’m not much of a cook, but they did like the macoroni and cheese and we’re still having it for leftovers, too!
