050519PollutedPetFood. Determination of amantadine and ribavirin residues in pet food with differential mobility spectrometry--《Chinese Journal of Health Laboratory Technology》2015年22期. OUYANG Shao-lun;XIANG Da-peng;SHAO Lin-zhi;WEI Xiao-qun;LI Hua-bin;Sun Yat-sen University; Objective To apply differential mobility spectrometry method for the determination of antiviral drugs residues in pet food.

Methods Trichloroacetic and enzymed were extracted from samples with trichloroacetic acid and enzymolysed with phosphate-esterase,then,purified by PBA solid phase extraction column. With the gradient elution of 5 mmol / L ammoniumacetate( 0. 1% formic acid) and acetonitrile as the mobile phase,the samples were eluted,and detected by tandem mass spectrometry in positive electrospray ionization and multiple reaction monitoring( MRM) mode.

The chemical modifier was used as isopropanol. Truth about Pet Food – Knowing the truth can save your pet's life. What Consumers Are Not Told About Pet Food Ingredients – Truth about Pet Food. All laws in the U.S. are public information, except pet food laws. All legal definitions in the U.S. are public information, except in pet food. Unlike with any other consumable product, pet food consumers are provided with no public access to regulations and definitions that involve their pet’s food. What regulatory authorities don’t tell consumers, does tell. The ingredients used in pet foods and treats each have their own specific definition written by and owned by AAFCO (in cooperation with FDA).

Pet food consumers are denied the right to access pet food ingredient definitions through an agreement between FDA and AAFCO (Memorandum of Understanding agreement). Pet food ingredients are NOT the same as human food ingredients. It is significant for pet food consumers to understand the following… There is not one pet food ingredient that is required by its AAFCO/FDA definition to be similar to the same ingredient in human food.

Pet Food Contaminants | Little Big Cat. Updated 3/23/18 As part of my duties as an AAFCO advisor and member of several Working Groups, I attend numerous webinars and teleconferences. In one group, the discussion centered around the use of 4D meats and other rotten junk in pet food, and the consensus was that as long as these things are rendered (heat-processed) to kill pathogens, they’re perfectly fine for pet food. Well, that just isn’t true. So I put together the following document to show that there are MANY potential toxic principles in pet food that need to be considered. There is an awareness growing among pet parents, and a new readiness to hear the truth. Now, your pet food consumer advocates—Susan Thixton of, Mollie Morrissette of, and I (Dr. After many hours spent in many meetings with representatives from AAFCO, FDA, and other regulatory bodies, we’ve basically been told that our best course to improve the situation is to educate consumers… without any support from them. 2.

When you know no one of authority has even raised an eyebrow since Part I was published weeks ago, the reality of just how much regulators care becomes very clear.

From the last paragraph of Toxic Trace Metals in Pet Foods Part II, published in the February 2011 Spectroscopy Magazine…“The trace-element data generated in this study have shown that there might be a cause of concern for owners who feed their pets commercially available dog and cat food on a daily basis.” A cause of concern indeed.

Glyphosate in pet food can have deadly consequences. From Dr. Michael Fox: Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide which contains the active ingredient glyphosate, recently designated a possible carcinogen, is actually absorbed by GM (genetically modified) crops genetically engineered to be resistant to this herbicide.

Dr. Glyphosate reacts at the molecular level with nitrous acid from nitrites to form N-Nitrosoglyphosate. The following table contains the Glyphosate and AMPA found in nine popular pet foods (provided by Dr. Right now in Congress, the Senate is considering a bill that will deny consumers the right to know if their food (or pet food) contains GMO ingredients (and Glyposate).

Lead, Mercury, Arsenic, Cadmium Found In Popular Pet Foods. SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — There are plenty of regulations intended to keep human food safe, but there are new concerns about pet foods. There have been thousands of pets with illnesses or deaths linked to pet foods in recent years. In many cases, the pet owners don’t know what in the foods made their pets sick. The FDA has received over 9,000 pet food complaints since 2010 ranging from diarrhea to death.

Clean Label Lab Tests Now, lab tests commissioned by the Clean Label Project are shedding light on what they say are shocking levels of contaminants lurking in some pet foods. Jackie Bowen of the Clean Label project said, “Seeing lead levels that were 55 times those observed in the Flint, Michigan drinking water” was among the most surprising findings of the tests. The Clean Label Project worked with Ellipse Analytics to test 900 of the bestselling pet foods and treats for over 130 contaminates and toxins.

Long Living Pets - My Blog. After having researched raw feeding and also done it with my dogs for 15 years, I'm ready to move to Phase 2. Over the next few months, I hope to add 1000 dogs that feed raw to my project. I will follow these dogs for the next 15 years plus. This should produce evidence beyond any doubt that raw feeding is superior to any other food.The most interesting result that will come from this is the rate of cancer incidents. Currently, 1 out of 4 dogs get cancer. I need your help to spread the word. There is not much involved. You can register for my raw feeding project here.

Nutrition is the basis of health. To build and run a healthy body, both wholesome raw materials and appropriate fuel are needed. We have been led to believe that processed pet foods provide healthy nutrition. I would like to inject an ounce of reality into this notion. Here are six falsehoods regarding the benefits of processed pet foods. 1. Processed pet foods are heated to the point that most of the natural nutrients in the raw materials are destroyed. Unfortunately, research indicates that synthetic vitamins do not provide the same health benefits as eating foods containing those same vitamins. Also, pet food manufacturers can only balance the diets to their current understanding of nutrition.

Processed pet foods are not 100% complete and balanced. 2. The word natural implies that something is closely mimicking what takes place in the wilds of nature. The wild (natural) counterparts of dogs and cats eat diets that are very different than what we provide our pets from a bag or can. 3. Untitled.

When Karen Becker was studying to be a veterinarian, she enrolled in her school’s free pet-food program to feed her 7-year-old Rottweiler, Gemini. “I was a broke student,” she says. “I took all the freebies I could get.” As Becker fought to save the dog’s life, she retraced her steps, desperately looking for the cause. “I wasn’t paying attention to what I fed my dog,” she says.

Animal lovers everywhere are scrutinizing pet food like never before. More than 52 percent of our dogs and 58 percent of our cats are overweight or obese, according to a 2012 Association for Pet Obesity Prevention survey. “The food we give our animals is creating generations of fat, diabetic, cancer-riddled pets,” says Becker.

Compounding the problem is that most vets learn little about nutrition. Becker, now an integrative veterinarian near Chicago, points out that pet food wasn’t always prepackaged. Nutrition Needs. Untitled. No canine adult diet on the market has proven itself like Wysong Adult™ (formerly Maintenance™). It is created by a veterinarian and owes its popularity solely to veterinary recommendation and word of mouth. Adult™ all natural dog food has been fed to tens of thousands of canines through multiple generations for over thirty years with remarkable results. This improved formulation is designed to take advantage of new processing methods to preserve natural value, and nutritional advances in epigenetics and nutrigenomics.

Adult™ is higher in meats, organs, protein, and fat, and contains a comprehensive spectrum and higher levels of micronutrients/nutraceuticals including prebiotics, Contained in nearly all Wysong pet foods and pet supplements, and absent in the majority of conventional dog foods. An absence of probiotics and enzymes compromises immunity and places the digestive burden wholly on the body, creating stress and disease. References/Further Reading:Biourrge V, et al.
