The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Huge recall of pet food

    This is relevant because of the importance of animal-assisted therapy, and because I love little kittens and puppies.

    Menu Foods, a major manufacturer of dog and cat food, has recalled 60 million containers of wet pet food after reports of kidney failure and deaths.

    The food was sold under Wal-Mart, Safeway, Kroger, and other store brands, as well as brand names such as Iams and Eukanuba.

    WBZ TV discusses the recall here, and lists of affected brands are here.

    Past summaries of animal-assisted therapy are here and here.
