Man’s best friend has become a member of the family—and the pet industry knows it. Pet product marketing is shifting to appeal to our responsibility as “pet parents” and making sure we give our pets the very best, with slogan’s like Honest Kitchen’s “Honest Difference” with “human-grade” ingredients. But how much do we really know about what we’re feeding our beloved dogs?
Clean Label Project™ had over 900 of the most popular pet food products tested for 130 industrial and environmental toxins including arsenic, once known as a primary ingredient in rat poison; cadmium, the active component in battery acid; as well as pesticides and additional contaminants linked to cancer and other fatal conditions in both humans and animals. The results were shocking.
Clean Label Project found lead in some pet food at 16 times the concentration of lead in Flint, Michigan’s tainted drinking water. And arsenic in concentrations of 555 times higher than the maximum contaminant level for human drinking water set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This is the food our pets eat twice a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. It is cause for extreme concern.

I know it’s getting really close to the big day, but I can’t close out October without showing you some of the really cute costumes available for your dog this Halloween. With rush shipping, you may be able to still get these in time for Trick-or-Treat. For each costume, I’ve given you a link to the website with the lowest price I found, and the name of the costume. There will undoubtedly be price differences for different sizes.
When you get to the vendor’s site, type in the name I’ve indicated plus the words “pet costume” and you should go right to it. (Or spend some time browsing all of their costumes – some of them are just too cute!)

A collection of photos honoring our K-9 military heroes. (And doesn’t the last one remind you of Arte Johnson’s sentry character on Laugh-in? Verrrrrry Interesting!)

I think this one pretty much speaks for itself. Eldad Hagar has been doing this for a long time and really makes a difference to so many animals. If you can, make a small donation to Hope For Paws.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
