Veterinary chain’s data estimates 39,000 animals were affected
Thousands of pets probably sickened by food - Pet Health - MSNBC.com: "Updated: 8:53 p.m. ET April 9, 2007
WASHINGTON - Pet food contaminated with an industrial chemical may have sickened or killed 39,000 cats and dogs nationwide, based on an extrapolation from data released Monday by one of the nation’s largest chains of veterinary hospitals."
I've been wondering about the extent of the morbidity from the food contamination issue. Read the whole MSNBC article, it explains that the effect was worse in cats than dogs, even though it appears the TV news shows I watch have focused on the consequences to dogs. Then again, the greater liklihood of fatality only offers a visual of grieving owners of cats vs. actual shots of recovering animals for the dog owners. All in all, a shame, no two ways about it.
