As a crazy dog lady myself, my dogs well-being is my top priority. I'm sure I'm not alone in this, after all our dogs are family members and we want to keep them happy and healthy. There was a big dog food recall last week due to the presence of extremely low levels of pentobarbital in certain pet food brands, which is used in euthanasia. The levels were very low but the JM Smucker company holds its products to higher standards and issued the recall anyway. The President of Pet Food and Snacks, Barry Dunaway issued this statement:

“We take this very seriously and are extremely disappointed that pentobarbital was introduced to our supply chain. We will continue to work closely with our suppliers and veterinarians to ensure the ingredients used in our products meet or exceed regulatory safety standards and our high-quality standards,
