An ‘FDA Warning Letter’ is not just a ‘Warning’

August 30, 2021

Nicole R. Cammack

….and other lessons courtesy of Midwestern Pet Foods   A little background: If you’re just catching up, Midwestern Pet Foods (manufacturer of Earthborn, ProPac, SportMix, CanineX, Venture, Unrefined and Wholesomes) rounded out 2020 with an expansive ‘voluntary’ recall’ secondary to aflatoxin contamination among a variety of their products. As 2021 began, the ‘voluntary’ recall became larger, as retailers and consumers we were assured that this incident was isolated to one of their four US plants. If you are wondering why I put ‘voluntary’ in quotes, it’s because voluntary recalls are actually not voluntary – they are forced by the FDA...

Brandon & Hades’ Raw Testimony

August 24, 2021

Jenna Harrison

 I was surprised by my best friend “Hades” 5 years ago by my girlfriend Chelsea and how can anyone forget that moment? A box was checked off the bucket list as we prepared ourselves for a great future with the little guy (A thirteen week old German Shepherd). Although, things changed drastically. When we had picked up Hades, he was actually within the progressive stage of Kennel Cough into Pneumonia. Tough, I know but luckily after immediate veterinarian assistance and a few weeks to recoup, Hades tackled Pneumonia and made it out okay. We were warned though that he most...


FAQ: Can I Feed My Cat Raw Food?

August 16, 2021

Nicole R. Cammack

YES! The feline digestive system has evolved to digest raw meat very efficiently but lacks enzymes that break down dry food (carbohydrates). A raw food diet can be extremely beneficial for a kitty at any age! Pro Tip: When buying raw food for your pets, always choose products sold specifically for animal consumption.

August 16, 2021

Nicole R. Cammack

“Nicole’s approach makes good sense. The pet food industry is huge, and safety must come first. Also, at the end of the day, we have to make sure the food is digestible — that the nutrients it provides can be absorbed by the animals eating it.” Watch Now >


Won’t my dog (or my family) get sick if I feed a raw diet?

August 6, 2021

Michelle Yaglowski

We, as humans, have always been told to cook our meat to eliminate pathogens like Salmonella, E. Coli, or Campylobacter. The truth is, there are very little documented cases linking raw feeding to enteric pathogens. In a study by DogRisk1, stool samples were tested in dogs who were fed raw diets and some who were fed kibble-based diets. It was discovered that “Zoonotic meat-borne bacteria—such as Campylobacter, Salmonella, and enteropathogenic Yersinia—were only sporadically detected in RMBD (raw meat-based diets) by PCR.”1 This means that there is no consistency with raw diets and enteric pathogens. As long as basic, safe handling...
