This news item from TODAY is about: When you buy food for your pets, you trust that what’s on the label will be in the package. But that’s not always the case, according to tests done at Chapman University in Orange, California. This does not shed a very good light on the pet food industry,” said Dr. Joseph Wakshlag, an associate professor of clinical nutrition at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Professor Wakshlag told TODAY that just a small amount of pig liver added to the product — and not disclosed on the label — would be more than enough to cause a problem for an allergic dog or cat.
