- Your pets food-Is it really safe?
Another year almost over, another year almost here. Where does the time go?
I just want to say to all of you out there, both new and past clients that you are all very much appreciated and we here atCyndi's Dog Sitting hope that you all have a wonderful 2013. We will look forward to seeing you again soon.
More than a pet sitter
I want to remind everyone that we do more than Pet Sit Please take a few moments and check out the Miscellaneous Tab to your left. Perhaps we can assist you in other ways also. You are always invited to spend a little time reviewing all of our website as things are always changing and New pieces of information and Links to other websites are always being added. You may find something you can use.
I have to say and make clear that I am a pet sitter and not an emergency Vet Clinic or a veterinarian, But, I have gotten to know your pets and I love them all. Please if you have any questions about pet care or concerns about your pet, let me know. I may not be able to give you "expert" advise but I am more than happy to talk to you and "brain storm" with you to come up with ideas and such that may help your given situation. Another thing-and a hard one for me to bring up is if your pet "passes on", or is sick, or you just need to talk...Please don't hesitate to call. I mean it when I say We are an extended Family. Your pet or pets are my main concern.
Your pets food-Is it really safe?
If you are anything like me, you absolutely love and adore your dog. Therefore I do everything I possibly can to ensure he is happy , healthy and safe. unfortunately no matter how hard we try there is always something or someone we have to be aware of.
The pet food industry seems to be all about financial gain. Lately it seems that a lot more than usual, pet foods and treats are either being recalled or are being taken off of the shelf at your favorite store due to people like you and me actually educating ourselves and demanding better. If we don't buy it, they go out of business. My purpose here is not to close down any business, but if it is harmful to our pets and they know it than I as a consumer will protest until they here me.
It doesn't matter what the food or treat is or how large the manufacturer is or how long they have been in business, No one is totally exempt from this problem. The bottom line is they will save where they can to make a profit. That is what they call "Success".
What do You do?......I read and get plugged in to those who know. Again I place a lot of information on this website you really need to research. If you would like another up-to-date tip from someone that knows I recommend looking into Susan Thixton's website, Truthaboutpetfood.com She is a pet food safety advocate and author of the book Buyer Beware also co-author of Dinner Pawsible. Sign up for her free Newsletter and get up-to-date info on a regular basis. We may not be able to read everything that comes our way, nor do we necessarily want to, but every little bit helps if you choose to use it.
As for Susan's information it helps alot.
Well that's it for now. Stay in touch by email, phone, our contact form using the tab to your left, facebook or wave me down when you see my Jeep. I always love it when we can talk about our Pets.
