  • Do not buy petfood from walmart

    I recently lost my dog to salmonella,this was a animal that was part of my family had every medical care a dog could get(thyroid meds,anxiety meds).She died 11-26-08 the day after thanksgiving,two days later walmart would not sell me the ol'roy premium dog food she solely ate for the last 4 years,I was told it was recalled for salmonella.This was made by MARS inc. in PENN. It was distributed thru-out New England and NY.I am still mourning my loss of a animal that I helped birth and was by my side for 7 years.Don't let this happen to you.I personally am considering filing a class action along when 3 other people who lost beloved pets from this neglect of safety for pure greed of the $$$.Please forward this info to anyone you know in this region with animals.........thankyou...greasy

    Greasy, sorry about your loss; the tough thing about having pets is that we usually outlive them, and this is made worse when we lose them too soon. We lost my first mastiff to a type of poisoning from cheap dog food; there are two compounds to watch out for, BHA and ethoxoquine (sp?). They store in the body and eventually become toxic, like lead poisoning.

    You will always keep that girl in your heart

        Sorry for your loss greasy. I can sympathize with you, our dog is our baby. We get her food from the vet. Yes, it cost A LOT more. But, like I said, she is our baby. After seeing the wal-mart episode on Frontline, I only shop there as a last resort! I support your decision to sue them.
