On the Radio, Tonight
Learn more about case of cattle insecticide sold for dogs

In December 2009, the Environmental Protection Agency slapped Hunte Kennel Systems and Animal Care, Inc., of Goodman, Mo., with a $56,632 civil penalty for “repackaging, relabeling and selling an insecticide meant for use on cattle and hogs as a flea and tick treatment for dogs.” In a few hours (Jan. 2 at 10 p.m. EST on WOR 710), Dr. Elizabeth Hodgkins talks about the case and offers advice on how to protect your pet from fraudulent products as well as fleas and ticks. You can call in with questions at 212-766-7100. If you live outside the tri-state or have other plans tonight, listen at your leisure via Tracie Hotchner’s Dog Talk & Cat Chat radio show podcast.

This story is an example of why I'm a control freak where my dog is concerned. As if the the 2007 pet food fiasco wasn't bad enough, we've since seen any number of pet products contaminated or made from hazardous ingredients and "not what they seem." I'm no longer comfortable buying commercial dog food, treats, chew toys/bones, rawhide or flea/tick products. I've switched to completely home-made where I at least have more control over materials and ingredients.
