Keep your dog healthy
Please buy your dog food and your dog products from a local pet store or a farm supply. Ask if the business owners or managers if they subscribe to daily updates on potentially harmful foods, treats and supplements. Ask if they track all lists of recalled pet products everyday they are open.
Use a trustworthy pet food store
A caring and knowledgeable store will pull all recall items each morning then ship them back to the sellers before the pet shop opens their doors to the public. They don’t want your dog getting sick from anything they sell. Naturally, they want to keep your business and have you refer friends and others to shop with them. A self monitor their products to keep from selling toxic products.
The old saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is certainly valuable in many ways to dog lovers. Be picky when it comes to buying and giving products to your dog for eating or chewing.
We shop at Western Farm because they assure us that they check all product recalls and pull them off the shelf to be returned to each company that produced any and all pet product recalls.

A few responses on Dog Food Advisor
“Be so careful with chew bones, especially if your dog’s a fast eater. I lost a wonderful friend due to a blocked intestine. It was a large chunk of a “digestible” chew bone.”
“I just bought these for my puppy not to long ago. And he chewed up the dark bone and ate it! Next thing I know… He was throwing up the next 24hrs- 7 times! Took him to vet and thy diagnosed him with an intestinal infection….. Wonder if it was because of the nylabone!”
“Same with my dog! Vomiting and peeing blood! He has a urinary tract infection they said. Same symptoms of salmonella. Call nylabone!! They should foot your vet bills!”
