Pet food and treats is an issue that seems to be worth mentioning again as I just read that Costco is still carrying pet treats that have

been responsible for kidney failure in animals. There are a number of treats that should be avoided but the most problematic seem to be the ones imported from Asia. There are no federal controls on the content or labelling of pet foods and treats so be very careful about what you feed that special member of your family.

I personally know two people who have had their little dogs die from kidney failure after eating dried chicken and duck tenders that were labelled 100% chicken or duck product. There are plenty of recipes on the internet for making your own dog treats that are not difficult. Cesar Milan, Martha Stewart and any number of other sites offer recipes for you to try. And a Canadian or American distributor does not necessarily mean the product was made in Canada or the United States so it pays to be vigilant.

Please take the time to read this link. And while I’m at it, I’m including a link from a vet about things that annoy him.

We all want to be responsible pet owners and keep our pets living a long and healthy life.

As an early Baby Boomer, born in 1947, it seems to me that as we approach our retirement years, Boomers have gone from being the energy driving our nation to slowly becoming invisible. We risk losing our identity as society remains stubbornly youth-centric. And the irony is that Gen Xers and Ys are not the majority; we are. BOOMERBROADcast is my platform for being the voice of Baby Boomers, women in particular. We've generated a lot of changes over the decades but there's still a long way to go. After a 40-year career in the corporate world, I've taken up expressing the observations and concerns of our generation. Instead of pounding the pavement in my bellbottoms with a cardboard sign, I'm pounding my laptop (I learned to type on a manual typewriter and old habits die hard). If you have issues or concerns you would like voiced or have comments on what I've voiced, I'd love to hear from you. We started breaking the rules in the sixties and now that we're in our sixties it's no time to become complacent. Hope you'll stay tuned and if you like BOOMERBROADcast, share it with your friends.
