Time to tell the FDA that your pets are your family!Be an Advocate for Your Pet's Food

Are your pets your family?  Are you concerned with the food that you feed your furry family members? It's time to step up and voice your concerns.

Susan Thixton of has been monitoring the new proposed FDA regulations concerning the manufacturing and warehousing of pet food and animal feed.  The operative word is "proposed"; the FDA has not decided completely if the future laws will be the same as the "proposed" rules.  Thixton reports that the FDA is asking for comments from consumers, ingredient suppliers, pet food/animal feed manufacturers and stakeholder groups (such as lobby groups representing industry).  The agency says they will take into consideration everyone's comments (such as if industry complains that they just can't keep equipment clean or they need five years to establish record keeping.)  What this means is, if pet food consumers don't tell the FDA how they feel...guess who's comments they will be listening to??  INDUSTRY!!

Here are six ways you can help the animals in Los Angeles' city shelters6 Ways You Can Help Los Angeles' Shelter Pets

As a pet care professional, I feel like it's my duty to give back to the animals since I make my living off them. Before I had my daughter last year, I would volunteer at the West LA Animal Shelter, performing such activities as cleaning kennels, walking dogs and handling animals at a mobile pet adoptions. Since having the baby and have ZERO available time, the way I currently volunteer is by networking the dogs at the shelter (with the help of Mirja Bishop and the other volunteers) on the Hounds Needing Homes of this website and our Healthy Paws' Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Since you're on this website, you obviously care about the welfare of animals so you may wonder how you can help the over 57,000 animals taken in by the LA City Shelters each year.
