LIVELINES: PET CALLS

Incidents of pet food poisoning have alerted dog and cat owners to the dangers of contaminated food.

In 2007, recalls spurred the U.S. Congress to pass legislation establishing ingredient and processing standards for pet food.

While these are important and valuable protections for pets, owners should still be aware of the signs and symptoms of pet food poisoning.

Veterinarian doctor Randy Hammon was our guest this morning.
