Episode 163 “MISSOURI ALLIANCE FOR ANIMAL LEGISLATION”

February 5, 2017

Hello Pups and Kittens, welcome back for the hundred and sixty third time to The Groomer Next Door. This week we're joined by an amazing guest who fights the endless fight to help give a voice to the voiceess.

 

Let's learn about the Alliance?

The Missouri Alliance for Animal Legislation, founded in 1990, is a non-profit organization lobbying full time to bring positive change for animals through the legislative process.  Our efforts are combined with the actions of concerned individuals, other groups, organizations and agencies interested in the enactment and protection of Missouri’s animal welfare laws.

Our goals include increasing public awareness regarding the plight of animals, addressing problems with appropriate legislation, and providing information to the proper authorities to ensure enforcement of the laws.   As the only organized animal welfare lobbying group in Missouri, the Alliance is dedicated to furthering animal welfare issues by achieving these goals.

The Alliance concentrates its efforts on state legislation by drafting and submitting legislation and then tracking its progress through the Missouri General Assembly.  We then educate legislators regarding the issues surrounding legislation, and support or oppose additional animal related legislation proposed by others.

The Missouri Legislature is in session each year from January through mid-May.  During that time we attend and testify before committee hearings, provide supporting documentation, meet with legislators and issue action alerts to our supporters for their help.  We also sponsor Humane Day at the Capitol.   This event draws representatives from animal shelters and humane organizations as well as concerned citizens from across the state to meet and lobby their state legislators.    

 

RECALL REPORT

February 3, 2017 — Evanger’s Dog and Cat Food Company, Inc. of Wheeling, Illinois, is voluntarily recalling specific lots of its Hunk of Beef product due to potential contamination with the deadly drug, pentobarbital.

Pentobarbital can affect animals that ingest it, and possibly cause side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance or nausea — or in extreme cases, death.

 

What’s Being Recalled?

Although pentobarbital was detected in a single lot, the company is recalling all related Hunk of Beef products manufactured the week of June 6 through June 13, 2016.

The affected lots numbers that start with 1816E03HB, 1816E04HB, 1816E06HB, 1816E07HB, and 1816E13HB, and have an expiration date of June 2020.

The second half of the barcode reads 20109, which can be found on the back of the product label.

Where Was the Product Sold?

The affected products were sold both online and also distributed to retail locations only in the following states:

  • California
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • New York
  • Ohio
  • Pennsylvania
  • South Carolina
  • Washington
  • Wisconsin

About the Recall

The recall affects 5 lots of food that were produced from its supplier’s lot of beef, which is specifically used for the Hunk of Beef product and no other products.

To date, five dogs reportedly became ill. And one of the five dogs died after consuming the product with lot number 1816E06HB13.

Evanger’s is proactively issuing a recall so as not to risk potential exposure to pentobarbital in the product.

According to Evanger’s, all suppliers of meat products are USDA approved.

The insists the beef supplier provides the company with beef chunks from cows that are slaughtered in a USDA facility.

Evanger’s continues to investigate how the contaminant entered its raw material supply.

Because it sources its meat products from suppliers that are USDA approved and since no other products have reported any problems, the company is not extending the recall to other supplier lots.

According to Evanger’s, this is the first recall event for the company in its 82 years of manufacturing.

What to Do?

Although it has been verified that little or no product remains on store shelves, consumers are asked to return recalled product to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 847-537-0102 between 10 AM and 5 PM Central Time,
Monday through Friday.

U.S. citizens can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.

Or go to http://www.fda.gov/petfoodcomplaints.

Canadians can report any health or safety incidents related to the use of this product by filling out the Consumer Product Incident Report Form.

Episode 162 “PETCHATZ”

January 29, 2017

Hello Pups and Kittens and welcome back for the hundred and sixty second time to The Groomer Next Door. This week we have a very special guest joining us on the podcast this week. He's apart of the best pet tech on the market right now. A true innovation in conversation with our furbabies. Without further ado please welcome JOE MEYERS.

 

The PetChatz® Difference

https://petchatz.com/

Just like your pet is more than just a pet, PetChatz is more than just a great pet camera.  PetChatz was born out of the love we have for our pets, the desire to give them a better quality of life, and the understanding that our own lives are better with them in it. So, Why PetChatz? Let us explain…

 
Happy = You being there – from anywhere

Happy = You being there – from anywhere

What makes a pet happy?  Knowing their owner (or parent or mom or dad) is with them when times are tough and when times are good.  With PetChatz you can engage with each one of your pet’s senses – maximizing their pleasure centers and excitement at being “with you” even if it is virtually.  The PetChatz pet camera has it all – from two-way audio and video to dispensing treats and diffusing calming scents to letting them call you or play a game (with healthy, nutritious treats as a reward), PetChatz is the only complete interaction and engagement system on the market made specifically for pets.  You really can have it all – with PetChatz!

Secure = Peace of Mind that your pet is safe

Secure = Peace of Mind that your pet is safe

At PetChatz – we focus on security and safety (sort of like music – country and western).  We have built the PetChatz unit out of high quality materials in a shape designed to eliminate the worry about chewing (no corners = no place to get a grip).  Our functionality also allows you to monitor your pet and your home while the pet camera is in Silent Mode – for an extra layer of security for you and for your best friend.  This benefit helps create peace of mind and peace of mind helps create a better overall quality of life for everyone in your household. Welcome to the future!

Healthy = Natural, nutritious and delicious

Healthy = Natural, nutritious and delicious

Quality Ingredients
From a “meat first” approach through to natural ingredients plus no grains, fillers or corn, PetChatz Treatz® are among the highest quality products available in the market today.  You can feel good about rewarding your best friend – they deserve it!

Unique Formulation
Does your dog eat your cat’s food? Is your cat a finicky eater? PetChatz Treatz are uniquely formulated to be safe and nutritious for both dogs and cats.  This means no matter which one of your furry buddies is being engaged, the treats are safe and good for them.

Comfort = your voice, scent and face, plus a reward!

Comfort

Scent
The sense of smell for pets is one of the two dominant senses. Calm, reassurance and comfort can all come from familiar smells. With PetChatz Scentz®, you can create this connection with our Calming Formula.  Each call will diffuse this scent – making your PetChatz a safe haven at any time. Plus – our formula is specifically made to be safe for dogs and cats.

Voice
Sound – dogs and cats hear much better than humans (cats hear ultrasonic) making sound a key part of their lives.  What makes their lives better, however, is the sound of your voice.  With PetChatz, you can hear them but more importantly they can hear you.  You can comfort them, engage with them and make their day better by simply talking – from anywhere.

Sight
We continue to learn new things about how our pets see. Dogs can see colors – but more muted than humans. Cats are low light experts (dogs are not far behind).  They recognize your face – especially when you move and stand out in contrast to your background. With PetChatz, not only can you see how they are doing but they can see you and feel connected with our two-way video pet camera.

Reward
With any pet interaction, rewards teach proper behavior and recognize a job well done. The key to a reward system that revolves around food is being able to provide the rewards “guilt free”. PetChatz is the only pet camera treat dispenser that has the proper size and nutritional balance in treats as part of the overall system.  So go ahead – reward away when you can’t be there in person!

Fun = Maximum quality of life for you and your pet

Fun = Maximum quality of life for you and your pet

Let’s face it, having pets is a lot of fun.  We get memories, loyalty, and the purest expression of unconditional love you may ever find.  When you walk in at the end of a long day (or anytime you may be gone) your furry friends are so happy to see you! What if you could be there for them even when you can’t be home?  What would you see? What if you could interact remotely, calm them, encourage them, engage with them and even set up play time (with rewards) so their day gets a little brighter? Even better, what if they could call you and let you know they needed to pay their love forward? Now, what if you could record those memories for posterity? PetChatz (and PawCall®) – the revolutionary pet camera that makes all of this possible.

PetChatz has focused on local sourcing as much as possible. From our Midwest assembled PetChatz and PawCall® to our Minnesota made PetChatz Treatz®, we remain committed to bringing good jobs back to the USA.

Made in the USA – What does this mean today?

Years ago, Made in the USA was a source of pride for our country – product quality was high, jobs were plentiful and the future looked great. Then, the offshoring process began for many manufactured goods we used in our everyday lives.  This drove down prices – but US job losses increased and quality expectations began to fall.  Today, there are quite a few smaller business (and some larger ones as well) seeking to “onshore” more production – using parts from the best quality manufacturers in our new global marketplace, they seek to create good manufacturing jobs in the United States.  PetChatz is one of those companies – from our nutritious treats made in Minnesota to our PetChatz HD unit (and PawCall) assembled at a plant in Southern Minnesota to our engineering – most of which is done in the Upper Midwest as well – our goal is to keep as many high paying jobs inside the borders of this great country.

Low levels of thiamine could result in a cat having symptoms ranging from a lack of an appetite to seizures. While thiamine deficiency can be serious for cats, it can be treated if detected early.

A separate recall of cat food was issued in June when products from the Rad Cat Raw Diet may have been contaminated with either Salmonella or Listeria, or both, the FDA announced at the time.

Episode 157 “APOLLO PEAK PET WINE”

December 18, 2016

Hello Pups and Kittens and welcome back to The Groomer Next Door. This week we're joined by the Founder and President of Apollo Peak Pet Wines "Brandon Zavala". You're in for a treat, and by the end of this episode I wouldn't be surprised if you don't go to http://www.apollopeak.com and order your very own bottle for your furry friend. Let's get to know Apollo Peak Pet Wines.

OUR STORY

Apollo Peak, Ltd. was developed to create fine snack beverages that we like to call Cat Wine and Dog Wine for our feline and canine friends. We are animal lovers just like you, and our story is a long and fun one, to which we've shared some of our memories here. We currently strive to make a product that not only satisfies your pet's interest, but is safe and non-harmful to your special friends. 

 

Our "pet wine" creation started like any other radical idea...a product designed to help bridge the social divide between humans and their pets. Our initial thoughts were, "Why not share a drink with our canine and feline friends?  We spend so much time with them that they are slowly becoming humans too, right?" In doing this, we wanted to make sure we make a product derived from all organic and natural ingredients. It's been a difficult ride, but that has stayed true to this day and we will always keep to our promise to make a quality and fun product that we would give our own pets at home. Hence, we coined Made with Love on our bottles.

Cat Wine and Dog Wine has became our passion as we continue to innovate and create more and more unique flavors designed for all types of cats and dogs. We invite you to follow our journey on social media and help our pet community grow together.

Episode 156 “1ST ANNUAL COMEDY SHOW”

Hello Pups and Kittens and welcome to the 1ST annual (and hopefully many more)  Comedy Show.  We have a very special show this week.  We have a "NEW"  foster story.  GND News returns this week.  And we have a RECALL alert. 

 

December 8, 2016 — Blue Ridge Beef of Eatonton, Georgia has announced it is voluntarily recalling two of its frozen products due to their potential to be contaminated with Salmonella and/or Listeria monocytogenes.

The affected products are sold in 2 pound chubs and can be identified with the following manufacturing codes:

    • Lot #mfd ga8516
      Beef for dogs
      UPC code 8542980011009

Where Was It Sold?

The affected products were distributed to retail stores in the following states:

  • Arizona
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • North Carolina
  • South Carolina
  • Texas

About Salmonella and Listeria

Salmonella and Listeria can affect animals eating the product.

There is a risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surface exposed to these products.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella and/or Listeria should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Bloody disarrhea
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Fever

Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare provider. Consumers should also follow the simple handling tips on the package.

What Caused the Recall?

This recall was initiated after the FDA received two complaints associated with these products, including one complaint of two kitten illnesses and one complaint of a puppy death.

Subsequent testing by the FDA of a 2 pound chub of beef for dogs and kitten grind collected at a veterinary office revealed the presence of Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes.

There is no direct evidence linking these unfortunate instances to contaminated product.

This recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

What to Do?

Consumers who have purchased the above lots of beef for dogs or kitten grind are urged to stop feeding them and return products to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Or dispose of them immediately. Those with questions can email the company atblueridgebeefga@yahoo.com

Episode 155 “PAWFRICTION”

December 4, 2016

Hello Pups and Kittens and welcome back to The Groomer Next Door. This week we have an extremely amazing Veterinarian joining us on the podcast this week. Not only is he probably the most interesting Doctor, but he's created something that will help your pup.

 

Let's meet Stacey A. Bone, DVM

Dr. Bone is a 2008 graduate of the University of Missouri School of Veterinary Medicine. He had already earned a Bachelor of Science in biology from there in 2003. Originally from Branson, he has been practicing at a high-volume clinic in Las Vegas for the past two years and has decided to return to Missouri to be closer to family and friends. His veterinary interests include oncology, preventative medicine and soft-tissue surgery. In his spare time, he is an avid college football fan, golfer, and he loves to spend time volunteering.

 

Let us help them get back on their feet.

The founders of PawFriction teamed up to help dogs that have difficulty getting around on smooth flooring.  Through our exploration, we have developed PawFriction and are pleased to offer it to you and your dog today.

Having seen the adverse effects that aging paws had on dogs’ ability to move on smooth surfaces, recover from surgery, and stave off orthopedic, neurological, and degenerative diseases, Dr. Stacey Bone, teamed up with Jeff Harms, a medical device engineer, to create a better solution than anything available on the market.  It needed to be:

  • Completely safe
  • Proven effective
  • Works on any size dog
  • Easy to apply

After years of development and testing, PawFriction went to market in 2015. Currently available online and through a growing number of Veterinary Clinics and Professional Groomer, PawFriction continues to grow by expanding into retail.

 

Why it Works

Use It or Lose It

Without use, muscles lose their tone and flexibility and atrophy over time. Unfortunately, many degenerative diseases worsen without movement and exercise.

PawFriction allows your dogs to use their muscles as they normally would, enabling them to strengthen and help fight off orthopedic, neurological and degenerative diseases such as arthritis and dysplasia. In addition, your vet may recommend PawFriction as part of their post-operative rehabilitation.

PawFriction enhances your dog’s downward leg force by preventing lateral slipping and splay-legging increasing mobility and confidence.

 

We’re here to help you
move forward.

How to apply:

Depending on your dog’s size and activity level:

  • Each application should last 7 days on average
  • There are 2 to 4 applications per package

Although having the dog stand during application is ideal, some pets will respond better while lying down. Depending on your dog’s temperament, you may need another person to help either process.
