Snow ...Let it Go!

Hello folks...it's another snowy day here in Jersey! Arghh! Well spring is a mere 20 days off and temperatures are suppose to moderate so winter is on the run! (Sure!)Though I must say Nala is enjoying the snow! She loves to run and dive into it and end up wiggling on her back, legs going every which way in a most unladylike fashion!







Word came out the other day concerning the dog food Beneful made by Purina. Supposedly dogs that were getting ill or dying had a common link as far as consuming this dog food and a class action law suit was filed against Purina. It's been disclosed that Beneful contains propylene gylcol a chemical used to maintain moisture in food but you may be familiar with it as a component in anti-freeze! 

Evidently the FDA is okay with limited amounts of this stuff in dog and human food alike though some vets are not that alarmed by this commonly used additive. I noticed today while shopping in CVS that a mouthwash I picked up had PG in it!! ( Gargling with anti-freeze!? ) I would refrain from feeding my dog any food containing this chemical just to be safe.Read the labels carefully on what you buy and make an educated choice. Just saying folks!
