This Week on Animal Radio®:
New Chemical Found in Pet
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) cautioned that aminopterin was an unlikely suspect in the illnesses and deaths of animals that ingested the recently-recalled contaminated foods-a suspicion that was confirmed by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The FDA announced that further
laboratory testing identified the presence of melamine in food
samples from the recalled lots. Melamine, which is not highly
toxic in general, is used to make durable plastic household products;
cleaning products; hard, stain-resistant laminates; flame-retardant
foam and in soundproofing.
It is now known that some dry pet food may also contains the infected wheat gluten. The ASPCA recommends that as a precautionary measure, pet parents should immediately discontinue the use of the possibly-contaminated dry food, if they have not already done so. Further, the use of aggressive fluid therapy to treat pets for kidney failure, which has been directly linked to ingestion of the contaminated food, should continue. Any change in treatment should only be done under the direction of your veterinarian.
Further, if your pet is used
to eating a particular type of food, a sudden change in diet
or diet type may upset its stomach. This may be especially problematic
for pets with pre-existing illnesses."
A pet food company announced Monday a nationwide recall of dog, cat and ferret treats that could be contaminated with salmonella. The bacteria could infect both animals and people handling the food.
The announcement is unrelated to the more extensive recall of melamine-tainted dog and cat food that led to kidney failure in pets around the country.
Eight in One Inc., a division of United Pet Group Inc., is recalling all packages of Dingo Chick'N Jerky, Dingo Kitty Chicken Jerky and Dingo Ferret Chicken Jerky.
Salmonella can cause serious infections in pets and children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. In pets, salmonella can cause diarrhea, fevers, vomiting, loss of appetite, lethargy and abdominal pain. Animals that do not get sick can infect other pets or humans.
The bacteria could also infect people handling the pet treats. Humans infected with the salmonella can experience fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal cramps. It could also cause more serious problems such as arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract problems.
Eight in One has received a report of a dog infected by salmonella, which lead to further testing of this product. Some, but not all, of the samples tested were contaminated.
The treats were sold around the country at Target, PetSmart and other stores.
The company asks consumers to throw away unused portions of the jerky treats. To obtain a refund, call (888) 232-9889.
Iams, Eukanuba Brands Seek
To Reassure Pet Owners
Iams and Eukanuba employees
placed ads explaining that their products were safe for pets.
Iams and Eukanuba were among 90 brands involved in Menu Foods' recall last month that included Nutro, Science Diet and several private label brands like Wal-Mart's Ol' Roy. The Ontario, Canada, co-packer voluntarily recalled all "Cuts & Gravy" style wet canned and pouched foods. Hundreds of dogs and cats have been hospitalized and 14 have died since the contamination was uncovered, per the FDA.
P&G launched the first leg of a marketing plan to reinstate consumer confidence behind its two premium pet food brands with full-page ads in 59 major newspapers running today and tomorrow. Saatchi & Saatchi, New York, handles.
The ad is an open letter from Iams and Eukanuba employees that details steps P&G is taking to address the issue, including working more closely with retailers and the FDA and setting up a task force of veterinarians and healthcare professionals.
"We share the concerns and sorrow that the Menu Foods recall has caused pet owners," said Dan Rajczak, general manager for Iams and Eukanuba, in a statement. "We want to assure our customers that they can feel completely safe feeding any of the Iams and Eukanuba products now on store shelves."
Iams and Eukanuba dry foods were not part of the recall.
In 2006, Iams spent $76 million on advertising, and Eukanuba spent $8 million, per Nielsen Monitor-Plus.

Turtles In - Pet Turtles Out!
RECENT Animal Radio® PODCASTS:
G'day from Downunder...
How well do you know your pets? How much do you trust them? How good are YOUR kids with other pets - in this case, dogs!
The reason for these rather direct, and pointed questions is that we went on a picnic with friends today. The wife - we'll call her Rene - thinks her dog, a Cocker Spaniel is a 'pussycat' around kids... And when we visit their home, this seems to be the case. The dog plays happily with all the kids - albeit quite boisterously, but everyone seems to have a lot of fun.
So Rene thinks her kids (aged 6 & 9) are 'dog-proof' - she believes she's done well. And maybe she has. She is confident her kids love and understand ALL dogs and are not scared of them so that's pretty well it as far as she is concerned.
But we noticed something very strange... We took our smallest dog Kismet on a picnic with our friends. She's a very small 12-year-old Apricot Miniature Poodle.
We often take her out by herself (rather than our 3 others) mainly because she is a sweetie - has NEVER bitten anyone, let alone kids, and is a real softie, enjoys attention, lots of pats and of course treats! (the word spoiled also comes to mind!)
But guess what? Our friend's kids - the one with the Cocker Spaniel? They all seemed to be quite scared of our little Kismet. And we wondered why...
There were some very interesting moments on this picnic in watching body language from the kids as they moved around the picnic table occasionally followed by our inquisitive little Kismet. Bodies turned sideways, legs gingerly lifted 'out of her way'. Not one of them called her over for a pat and not one of them showed any interest in her whatsoever.
As it happens, nothing came of all this and we never mentioned it - but it made us think... 'How dog proof are our kids really?'
In America every year, an estimated 4.7 million people are bitten by dogs, ranging from minor nips to major attacks. (Source HSUS)
Here in Australia the figures are smaller due to our smaller population with an estimated 13,000 dog bites each year which require medical attention in hospital, and of those around about 1,400 actually require reconstructive surgery of some sort, and about 60% of those occur in children under ten years of age. (Source: Radio National-Health Report)
However one state - New South Wales - has started an education program called S.P.O.T - or Safe Pets Out There.
It's aimed at every primary
school kid in the state over the next 3 years.
We all know far too many young children get bitten by dogs. Sadly most of these attacks are from the family dog, so 'dog-proofing' - or trying to teach kids how to act and react around dogs is essential if we are to stop the number of dog bites.
ALL DOGS BITE - but with the right education from a very early age, adults and kids alike can live the 'dream' that we all have of a safe and happy family with our pets.
Don't forget - in the US, the
third week of May is National Dog Bite
Writing this little story has prompted us to see if we can get something similar rolling here too. After all, we love our pets that's for sure... But kids are our future and it's up to us to protect them too.
Hugs for your pets
is Lyme Disease Prevention Month...For Pets!
For most people, the fear and threat of Lyme disease came to national attention in the latter part of the 20th century when the bacteria causing the illness was first identified and associated with ticks. This bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi, is found in many species of wildlife and has found humans and pets to be suitable alternative hosts. Named for the city in which the first clustering of the disease occurred, Lyme disease in humans has been diagnosed in every state but Montana. It is the most common tick borne disease reported in humans in the United States.
But perhaps an equal concern for many is how this infection can affect our dogs and even horses. According to recent surveys, dogs testing positive for Lyme disease have been found in every single one of the 48 contiguous United States. For many pet owners, it's a danger for which they just aren't prepared.
Although ticks can transmit many debilitating diseases to our pets and us, Lyme disease is the most common and the best known of all these terrible illnesses. For people, Lyme is often characterized by a unique, enlarging rash, potentially followed by more serious symptoms, such as fatigue, severe headaches, joint problems and possibly even blindness. In our dogs, intermittent lameness is the most common manifestation of this sickness. However, kidney failure, neurological problems and even heart disorders can occur as well.
For many people and pets, antibiotics can help to kill off the bacteria that cause Lyme disease, but for many others, treatment failures occur, leading to longer treatments, potentially more health problems and definitely higher financial costs. As an added worry, neither people nor pets develop any long-lasting immunity after the illness, opening the door to becoming re-infected again and again.
Fortunately, veterinary scientists and industry leaders have found ways to help minimize the risks to our dogs and help them avoid the nasty effects of this disease. One of the first steps is to create additional understanding about how this disease is contracted and how it can be prevented. The Lyme Disease Foundation, in conjunction with Merial, has recently named April as National Prevent Lyme in Dogs Month. By kicking off an awareness movement early in the spring, pet owners can become aware of tick-related problems before the heavier tick seasons of summer and fall.
A comprehensive prevention plan can also help pet owners avoid the potential heartaches and pitfalls of Lyme disease. Helping their pets to avoid ticks and even vaccinating dogs against the illness itself are just two of the ways that we can help.
Many of the topical flea products provide protection against ticks as well, and highly effective tick collars are available through your family veterinarian. These products are especially helpful for nature-loving owners who enjoy having their faithful canine companion along with them on hikes, camping trips, or any outdoor activity.
Beyond keeping ticks off your pets, vaccination against Lyme Disease is also available through your veterinarian. State of the art recombinant vaccines for dogs have been created by leading veterinary pharmaceutical companies and can definitely provide an additional level of protection against Lyme disease. Created by isolating a purified protein from the outer surface of the Borrelia bacterium, the recombinant vaccine provides protection by actually blocking the route of migration out of the tick and into your pet.
Although Lyme positive dogs have been found in most states, veterinarians still believe that this disease is fairly regional in nature, and owners should have an open discussion with their family veterinarian prior to requesting the administration of a Lyme vaccine. Regardless of where you live, keeping ticks away from your pets can be a lifesaver. The website, www.lyme.org has important advice for helping owners minimize their pet's exposure to these eight-legged disease vectors.
There is no doubt that ticks
cause a creepy reaction in most of us. Keeping your pets tick
free is possible and potentially can keep them from contracting
a serious illness. Visit www.MyVNN.com to learn more about how
these disease carriers can affect your pets and how veterinary
science is working to protect our furry, four legged friends.
My Cat Won't Come Out from Under the Bed
Dear Cat Coach,
Perplexed and Saddened
There is hope! The trick is patience and bribery. Shadow may never be a lap kitty, but chances are she'll eventually decide it's to her benefit to not spend her whole life hiding under a bed.
The first step is to make sure there are no other cats with her in her room. It's important that she bonds to you and not to another cat. Your next task is to convince her that you are the great provider of everything that's important mainly food. The free-feeding has to stop. Instead, provide her with 2-4 meals throughout the day and lots of snacks. Start by placing the food a few feet away from the bed. Talk to her when you put the food down. Spend lots of time in the room with her, talking to her, singing, reading a book or just sitting quietly. Every time you go in the room throw a treat near the bed. Don't ever chase her or try to force her to come out of her hiding place. When she's feeling safe she'll venture out on her own.
Clicker training is a wonderful tool for changing a fraidy cat into a cat with confidence. Go to the local pet store and buy a clicker. If the clicker sound is too harsh and frightens Shadow, then click the end of a ball point pen instead. The first step is to encourage Shadow to associate a treat with the sound of the clicker or ball point pen. Do this by clicking once and then immediately follow the click with a treat. Every time you give Shadow a treat it should be preceded by a click. Soon Shadow will start to associate you and the clicker with something delicious to eat. After Shadow associates the clicker with a treat, encourage her to touch a target. Use a long 3-foot stick to start with. Each time Shadow touches the target stick, click and than treat. As she becomes more comfortable with touching the target stick, gradually shorten it. Eventually you should be able to lead her with it. Clicker training builds from there, shaping behaviors, building confidence and mentally stimulating the cat. I highly recommend Karen Pryor's book "Clicker Training for Cats" for a more complete description on how to clicker train a cat. By the time you start training Shadow to sit or shake hands she will prefer to spend her time on top of the bed instead of under it.
Patience is important. Success does not happen overnight. It's hard to predict how long it will take until she decides you are worthy of her trust and will venture out from the safety of her hiding place. With work, patience and bribery, she will eventually be won over.

Be Safe Become A Chef
for Your Canine
Like many of you, I carefully read food labels when shopping for my dogs and cats. I stay clear of products listing wheat or corn or meat by-products. In my role as a pet journalist, I also work closely with leading veterinary nutritionists for stories I write that appear in many national pet publications.
For this month's newsletter, I wish to offer two "foods" of thought:
If you're ready to don an apron and become a canine chef, let me share with you some veterinarian-analyzed and veterinarian-approved recipes from my book, Real Food for Dogs: 50 Vet-Approved Recipes to Please the Canine Gastronome (Storey Books). Although I wrote that book a few years ago, it remains a popular seller and has been reprinted in five foreign languages. In addition to the recipes, the book also offers insights into food preparation safety, time-saving tips, and advice on preventing your pooches from turning into chubby chowhounds.
News about my book has generated increased media attention in recent weeks, including from the New York Times and a leading news talk radio station in Canada. The New York Times dispatched a photographer to my home in Oceanside, California to snap photos of me serving "Marvelous Mutt Meatballs" from my book to my two dogs, Chipper and Cleo. They seemed only happy to drool for these meaty treats in front of the photographer.
So, grab an apron and treat your tail-wagging pal to these recipes from my book (added bonus the recipes featured here are also fit for people, too!):
MARVELOUS MUTT MEATBALLS
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
CHOWHOUND CHICKEN SOUP
2 chicken breasts and thighs
1. Combine the chicken, water,
carrots, celery and potatoes in a large pot.
TAIL-WAGGING TURKEY PIZZA
_ cup turkey broth
1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Pet Food Recall Expands
Recently, a major recall of more than 60 million containers of pet foods was announced following reports of kidney failure and death in dogs and cats that had eaten contaminated food. The original recall included major brand names including Eukanuba, Iams and Nutro. It has now been announced that Hills and Purina were also recalling product.
The massive scale helps to prove something that Animal Ark has been saying for years: there are major problems with the pet food industry.
Though pet food companies would like consumers to believe their foods are made with quality, tested ingredients, the truth about what goes into pet foods is far different. Virtually all of the major pet food companies selling pet foods in the United States are now owned by major international conglomerates like P & G and Colgate. These large organizations often sell off the waste products of their human food production to their pet food divisions.
A new trend in this industry has been the centralization of processing. As this recall highlights, many major pet food brands are coming from the same processing plant. Though these brands would like consumers to believe their products are unique and special, in reality, they are all pretty much the same.
In the face of this, however, a new brand of pet food company has been gradually emerging. Smaller, niche products that focus on quality rather than quantity have been gaining notoriety.
Following are some links that will allow you to begin researching the issue more carefully:

Turtle Eaten Alive - Survives!
When it got cold outside, 12-year-old Shelby Terihay of Ithia, Florida decided it was too cold outside for her turtles, so she brought them inside and put them in the bathtub.
Even though Shelby thought it was a good idea, the family's golden retriever thought it was an even better idea. In fact, he decided that they were lunch.
When Shelby noticed one of the turtles missing, she informed her family who then noticed the dog licking his lips. Expecting the worst, they then forced the dog to drink peroxide to induce vomiting.
After about 10 minutes, the little green turtle was expelled and began to move about. Both the turtle and dog are doing fine.

All the Buzz About Bees
In 1842, John C. Fremont, Pathfinder of the West, and later governor of California, was commissioned to lead an expedition to find a passage over the Rocky Mountains. Part of any government commission is writing the report, but Fremont was an adventurer, not a writer, so he turned to his wife, Jessie Benton Fremont, for help. As John recounted his successful journey to Jessie, she helped the report come alive in a manner that would capture the imagination of the nation. Jessie wrote of how her husband scaled what he mistakenly believed to be the highest point in the Rockies, and as he unfurled a US flag on the icy summit, all of a sudden a bee appeared. As Fremont tells it: "It was a strange place . . . for a lover of warm sunshine and flowers, and we pleased ourselves with the idea that the bee was the first of his species to cross the mountain barrier, a solitary pioneer to foretell the advance of civilization." Fremont then swiftly clapped the bee among the pages of his journal and thus insured its immortality.
When the Fremont report was
released to an eager public, the solitary bee captured the wanderlust
of the nation, and as we know, that "solitary bee then became
The ancient Egyptians were the first to practice beekeeping. They placed the beehives on boats that floated down the Nile, taking advantage of the blossoms all the way down the river. The Egyptians also believed that bees were born from the tears of their Sun-god, Ra, and in honor of the god, bees performed a dance to the sun. Scientific findings have shown that bees actually do. The bees' dance involves movements that show the location of a new source of pollen in regard to the degrees of the sun's position. When a scout bee shares a bit of the new pollen, the rest of the hive can then determine the plant they are looking for, while the scout's dance tells them how to find it
It was honey that was the ambrosia upon which the Gods of Mount Olympus dined, while mead, wine that is created from fermented honey, is thought to give those who imbibe it the powers of prophecy. The Viking giantess, Gonlod, also considered the Mother of Poetry, brewed her famous mead in the Cauldron of Inspiration, while the ancient Greek poets Homer and Sappho were believed to have had their lips touched with honeywhile they were infants, creating their gift for sweet speech.
In Christianity, bees retain their association with the mother goddess as emissaries of the Virgin Mary. Throughout Eastern Europe, Mary is considered the protectress of bees and beekeepers, and consecrated honey is offered to her every year on the Feast of the Assumption, August 15th. It was, and still is, considered unlucky to kill a bee that may come into your home; she is not there to hurt or sting you, but to bring you blessings.
Preserved in amber at the Natural
History Museum in New York is a bee believed to be 80 million
years old. From ancient bees encased in amber, to the enduring
words of honey-tongues poets, to the lone bee John C. Fremont

of bee that echoes through the ages.

ASK "THE DOG EXPERT" - by Darlene Arden, Certified Animal Behavior Consultant
Q: When my boyfriend comes near me to touch me, my dog snarls at him. It happens all the time. Why? And what can we do to change this behavior. Tom is a really nice guy!
A: Most dog owners think of Resource Guarding in terms of the dog who won't let anyone near an old sock that he has pilfered or his food or some other object that he considers to be of high value. It is his resource. What owners fail to consider is that they themselves can be a resource for the dog. After all, owners feed, water, walk and play with the dog. All good things come from the owner and that's as it should be. The problem begins when the dog views the owner as his personal resource and doesn't want to share. In other words, your dog views your boyfriend as competition for his best resource: you! In order to help change this behavior, I'd suggest you give your boyfriend some treats to toss in the dog's direction. Also, allow your boyfriend to feed your dog, and tossing extra pieces of food in the dish while the dog eats (just walking past the dog while doing this). Let them develop a relationship of their own so he will no longer view your boyfriend as competition but a friend with whom he can share. Good things should happen for the dog when your boyfriend is in the room. And you can all go for a walk together. If you haven't tried clicker training, then you and your boyfriend can both do this with your dog. It's positive, easy training and you'll all have fun together.

He and his mother, Kathy, then showed up at Trump Towers in Manhattan and were invited in for a brief session.
