The kids are alright

Pippin and ScreechUnless you’ve been living in a vaccuum, you’ve heard about the huge pet food recall that has made hundreds of pets sick throughout North America, with 10 pets that have died of renal failure.

I’m happy to report that Pippin and Screech are alive and well. Their food, Purina One, is thankfully not affected by the recall whatsoever. And no, this is not a commercial– it’s just me being eternally grateful I switched to this brand, because I used to feed them one of the affected brands.

If this is the first you’ve heard about the recall, and you are a pet owner, please visit the Menu Foods website for a list of brands that are affected. The recall affects mostly wet foods, particularly “cuts and gravy” style foods in pouches and cans. So if you feed your pets dry food, you are most likely safe. But it’s better to be safe than sorry.

I don’t know what I’d do if I lost these guys to something like this. They’re my babies… my kids. I’m so thankful they’re alright.
