It’s ironic that a food, human or animal where the word ‘prescription’ appears in its name should face a recall. A Prescription conjures an image of medical professionals in white coats, human and animal, writing up barely readable lists of meds. Of the 19 foods on this recall list, 11 are Prescription diet food. As pet parents, we rely, often, with blind faith on companies, to produce foods and products that are safe for our pets.
As parents, it is your responsibility to ensure you give your “fur babies” the safest products in the market.
Consumers are easily swayed by good marketing. However, good marketing can only go so far, if the product behind the marketing is not up to standard. So, if the largest, or second largest pet food producers in the world tell you their foods are the best. Analyse for your self, do they have the best marketing agencies or the best food?
