My new best friend – Ted, the dog – came from a breeder in Toowoomba, about 90 minutes away, atop Australia’s Great Dividing Ridge.
He weighs less than our cats, but is feisty and loves a walk.
Or a run.
The breeder (we went to the local shelters, but they had dogs that were not deemed appropriate by our townhouse body corporate) so we got the little one rather than make a rush decision to buy an $800K house so we could have a bigger dog.
Besides, this one’s got personality.
The breeder insisted that dogs do better on a raw meat diet.
I just wanted to get the dog, go visit our friends, and go home, so didn’t belabor the point.
But any raw product carries the same risk of Salmonella and E. coli and other things that are not fun to inflict on your dog.
Natures Menu is recalling its ‘Country Hunter 80% Farm Reared Turkey with Wholesome Fruit and Veg’ frozen pet food, because the product contains Salmonella.
The UK Food Standards Agency is issuing this product recall notice because we are responsible for animal feed regulations and their enforcement through local authorities.
