The recent recall of Menu pet foods has highlighted many issues with the commercial pet food industry and has left many people confused and frustrated as to what they can do to ensure their animals are eating a healthy diet. API has received hundreds of inquiries from people wanting to know more about what is in commercial pet food and what alternatives to it exist. In response, we have updated our “What’s Really in Pet Food” report with the assistance of Dr. Jean Hofve, a veterinarian specializing in the dietary needs of companion animals.
In case you missed it, API was featured in a story on Good Morning America commenting on the sad story of a coyote who wandered into a downtown Chicago Quizno’s on Tuesday. The clip of the interview is not online but there is a story about the coyote that you can view here. This story is a great reminder that we can successfully co-exist with these resilient creatures and API has all the materials to show you how!
