Menu Foods insider trading

I can't stay quite about this any longer!

When I first heard about he Menu Foods dog food recall, I searched for info to post on this blog and send to my mailing list. All I found on the Menu Foods web site was an article about how stock prices might be impacted by the recall. Only later could I find a list of the recalled foods which by that time were circulated in the media.

Menu foods has since changed their web site and I can't find that original press release about the stock prices. I suspect it went away when news of the insider trading broke.

"Menu Foods began getting calls about sick cats around Feb. 26

CFO Mark Wiens sold 14,000 shares for $89,900 on Feb. 26 and Feb. 27. The shares are now worth about $54,000. "

See this article for more...

Also, still compare Menu Foods website with Nutro's web site. Notice any difference in tone?

All this makes me even more determined to know exactly what is going into Smash's food dish.

Update on Smash's healing process

Natural Healing

Smash is healing nicely from his injuries. The cuts on his side are hardly visible now. Most of the hair has grown back. There is still a missing stripe of fur where the bandage that held his leg that first week rubbed it raw, but you have to look close to see it.

The leg that I was told need to be amputated is doing well too. He uses it to scratch his nose although he looks funny when he does it!

Most amazingly he can balance on it while he hike the other leg to mark his territory. And as we were packing for our trip this easter weekend he showed that he wanted to go too by jumping into the back of our Suburban!

I still won't let him run loose as I keep seeing the neighbor dogs out on the road where I suspect he got hit. But he is adapting to being somewhat confined.

I give several Reiki treatments each week and I have been doing EFT on myself to calm my worries about him. He really does not seem to know he has a problem anymore.

Healthy Dog Food

With the scary pet food recalls int he news lately, I have noticed that a lot of people are looking for ways to make their own dog food.

While this is how we feed Smash, not every one has a nutritionist in the family to recommend the proper balance of foods that a dog needs to stay healthy.

So here is John Miller to the rescue. He has prepared a list of super dog food recipes that your dog will love to eat and most importantly will keep him healthy.

If you read anything about where the "raw protein" comes from that is used in most dog foods, you would not even stick you hand in the bag much less feed it to your dog.

John's recipes are easy to follow and very healthy for your dog. You won't have to buy special ingredients, just use the stuff you already have to get started.

To learn more about John's recipes and to get the peace of mind of knowing what is in your dogs food, click here now.
