About the 107 Million Can Dog Food Recall

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (04-07-2018) #565: More than 107 million cans of dog food have been recalled because they contained trace amounts of pentobarbital, the tranquilizer used to put down sick or injured animals. How did this happen? Tracie talks to Dr.Tim Evans, an associate professor of veterinary pathobiology and head of toxicology in the Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory (VMDL) at the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine; Kellie Snider’s book Turning Fierce Dogs Friendly: Using Constructional Aggression Treatment to Rehabilitate Aggressive and Reactive Dogs is helping people identify reactive dogs who might become aggressive if their fear is not understood and well managed; Brad Croft is the founder of Universal K9 that exists solely to save dogs to train for law enforcement and veterans — they identify and train shelter dogs for police and detection work, and who runs the Detection Dog Program at Animal Farm Foundation, where their mission is to secure equal treatment and opportunity for “pit bull” dogs.
