Thanks for keeping us posted Daryl. I was about to dismiss it as my cats don't get any supplements, but then I realized I do use a hairball goop on occasion. It wasn't on the list, thank goodness.

Not to hijack your thread, but... speaking of pets...
I am starting to feel the pain some of you have mentioned over the years: RABBITS. Seamus has always been my hunter and kept the pests out of my yard. But now, at 12, he has developed a digestive problem that I think has made him less energenic. He gets medication, but I don't think it completely solves everything. The upshot is bunnies, chipmunks, squirrels are infiltrating my garden. I just put in a white Liatris a couple months ago. It was getting ready to bloom, but they chopped it off; leaves too. They nibbled on some of the Asclepias seedlings in my nursery, too. There's pellet piles in the lawn!

I can't afford another cat just now. Since I'm down to two and Seamus can only have food 2x a day for 1hr each time, I've decided to try one more time to help Slugger. He's got some sort of food allergy and the only food he should eat is $6 a pound dry and $2.20 for a 5oz wet. I don't eat that well! But without it, he frequently goes berserk scratching his head, falling off tables and down stairs. It's like an epileptic fit. He's damaged one ear from the extreme scratching. I couldn't afford this food when I had 5 cats. I tried but it's impossible to keep them out of each others food.

So, I'll give it one more try. If this doesn't work this time, he'll just have to continue living with the problem and I'll have to look for a young hunter next year.

Subject: [CHAT] More pet product recall


United Pet Group Voluntarily Expands Recall of Nutritional Supplements For
Dogs to Include Additional Tablet and Powdered-Form Products for Dogs and Cats
Because of Possible Salmonella Health Risk
Consumers Contact:
(877) 399-5226

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - July 2, 2010 - United Pet Group, Cincinnati, Ohio is
voluntarily expanding its recent recall of its Pro-Pet Adult Daily Vitamin
Supplement tablets for Dogs to include additional pet nutritional supplement products for dogs and cats due to possible Salmonella contamination. The list of recalled products is provided below. The Food and Drug Administration is
aware of this recall.

The recalled products are sold nationally at various retailers. The products include various United Pet Group Pro-Pet and Excel branded products for dogs and cats, and certain other private label brands of the same products. All of
the affected products are in tablet and powdered form. These products are
being removed from retail stores and consumers should immediately stop feeding
these supplements to their pets. The affected products are those with
expiration dates that include and are between "01/2013" and "06/2013."
Products with expiration dates earlier than 01/2013 or later than 06/2013 are
not included in this recall. The expiration date can be found imprinted
vertically on the right side of the product label.

Laboratory testing has revealed that some lots of some of these products may
be contaminated with Salmonella. The company is recalling the additional
products out of an abundance of caution.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers
and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled
product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

People who handle these products can become infected with Salmonella,
especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with them or any surfaces exposed to these products. Healthy people infected
with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following
symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact
with the product should contact their healthcare providers.

Consumers who have purchased the affected products are urged to contact United
Pet Group or the place of purchase for further direction. Consumers may
contact United Pet Group at 1-877-399-5226, Monday through Friday, from 8:30
am to 5:00 pm EST.
