SIGN: Ban Dead Dog and Cat Remains in Pet Food

SIGN: Ban Dead Dog and Cat Remains in Pet Food

Last year, the FDA recalled multiple brands of dog food contaminated with pentobarbital -- a sedative used in pet euthanasia. And just last month, the agency found the same drug in Gravy Train, prompting J.M. Smucker to pull their canned dog food from the shelves.

Pentobarbital is only present in pet food for one reason: the products contain the rendered remains of euthanized animals. And under current law, those animals could even be dogs and cats euthanized at animal shelters and shipped off to rendering plants.

"That material is legally allowed to be sold to dog kennels and pet food manufacturing facilities, so essentially your dog and cat could be eating euthanized dogs and cats," according to attorney DanaMarie Pannella.

But a new Ohio bill could prevent this sickening practice in the state, and set a precedent for the rest of the nation. HB 560 would outlaw any dog or cat remains in pet food, as well as ban remains of any animal killed by drug-induced euthanasia.

Sign this petition urging Ohio Governor John Kasich to fully support this bill and urge state house leaders to pass it as soon as possible. No dog or cat should have to eat the remains of their own species.

    This is very disturbing news. I hope that my voice will help. Is there any way to find out what dog food companies use these practices? I would like to make it known on Facebook who these companies are.
    Thanks, Dan

    I bought high priced suppose to be high quality dog food all to find out it includes this ingredient. Here is the funny thing its suppose to be all natural grain free dog food. As much as I spend on this bag of food maybe I should just cook for my dog instead it would be about the same price. I don’t want to feed my baby crap from deceitful companies.

    The animal world version of Soylent Green, very disgusting to think that pets could be eating there own. Humans again, who would have us, certainly not the animal kingdom.

    it’s sickening and outrageous to even think that there is dead animals in my dogs food and even worse to think that our dogs are eating the remains of dogs and cats that have been euthanized and the medicine to9 euthanize animals is in our dog food. f I have also read that the companies making dog food take the old grease and rotten food from behind restaurants and put in our dogs food. I pay an outrageous amount for my dogs food and expect to have them eating a nutracous diet not a lot of garbage that can kill them prematurely.

    Animals that are euthanized in shelters are the oneโ€™s used in food. The shelters get paid to do this. This gives them an incentive, since they are in a political position, to euthanize a certain minimum amount of animals. This is heartbreaking. Every shelter should be โ€œNO KILL.โ€

    Eating pets, cats and dogs is morally wrong and revolting. And yes, Iโ€™m including other animals such as pigs and cows and horses. I know the idea behind this is GREED and MONEY.
