Every time I turn around there is another warning of what not to feed our dogs

Every time I turn around there is another warning of what not to feed our dogs. Today there are just too many theories, opinions and little science. It’s getting to the point of not knowing what to take for granted, or what is good or bad for dogs to eat any longer. I think we just have to be very educated, hyper aware, use common sense, don’t give them something we would not eat ourselves and see how they react to foods and their environment.

Warning Horse Meat Found Pet Food

Warning Horse Meat Found Pet Food. Evangers Dog Food plans to recall all pet foods with beef for concerns over Pentobarbital in the food.

Joel Sher, VP of Evangers admitted to a reporter that DNA analysis found horse meat in their pet food. Independent testing results showed beef, as well as horse DNA.

Testing was ordered after a dog died and others sickened from complications caused by pentobarbital in their canned dog food. A drug typically used by veterinarians to euthanize animals.

The results are surprising considering the FDA also conducted species analysis testing on the implicated pet food and they confirmed it was beef. The FDA said in a statement:

In another admission on another website, Joel Sher also confessed that the company plans to recall all Evanger’s pet food products containing chunks of beef. The article states,all of the company’s foods containing “chunk beef” will be recalled.

It is unclear, at this point, which brands with beef or “chunks” of beef will be recalled. A search of Evanger’s website revealed it’s Hunk of Beef style pet food products are no longer sold on their website.

It is also unclear whether the reason for the pending recalls will be for adulteration with horse meat or fears that other brands may also contain pentobarbital or both.

This news that other Evanger’s brands are in the process of being recalled is not particularly surpising. The FDA could not confidently say whether other brands did not also contain the deadly drug.

This news comes on the heels of an FDA warning consumers not feed certain lots of Evanger’s pet food to their animals. The FDA press release cautioned: “The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is advising pet owners and caretakers not to feed their pets certain lots of Evanger’s. Including canned Hunk of Beef or Against the Grain,Grain Free Pulled Beef with Gravy canned dog food. Unopened cans from both brands were found to contain pentobarbital, a barbiturate.

Green Pets: providing healthy pet food and critical veterinary care for pet families in need. Founded in Atlanta, GA in 2007. Gold Star Rated 501c3 Non-Profit Organization. Recognized by the State Senate of Georgia and City Council of Woodstock for our works to the State and Community.


The vision of Green Pets is in its name.  Pets are a precious resource to be sustained and not thrown away.  Green Pets believes pets are not disposable but rather a resource that needs to be rescued, renewed and rehomed.

Green Living Green PetsThe concept for Green Pets was based on Steve Monahan’s best-selling animal welfare book named, Rescue Renew Rehome.  It was written to teach pet owners and shelters how to organically and holistically feed and care for their family pets.

In the past 10 years, GPA have rescued, renewed and rehomed almost 1,000 death row shelter animals throughout Georgia.

Dog Food was given to places like Papas Pantry, Must Ministries, and The Cherokee Animal Shelter.  A need was filled by helping families keep their pets with them when the tough times hit.

Green Pets helped children needing service dog to help them live to the best of their abilities.

Green Pets is keenly aware a phenomenon called “Black Dog Syndrome”.  It’s a sad truth that leaves black dogs in shelters much longer than their tan furred brethren.  Just like certain breeds, dogs shouldn’t be judged on the color of their fur or their breed.

Green Pets is not your basic “rescue the dogs” nonprofit. They cover a lot of needs in their overarching vision of simply keeping families and pets together.

Green Pets helped honor our local working K9s by providing a fenced in area at the Woodstock police station for a K9 outdoor “break room”.  Our police K9 is on the job protecting us 24/7 and Green Pets America believes we all should love and celebrate these working officers, with the dignity, honor and respect they deserve.

Steve Monahan, Green Pets Founder, said; in our day to day efforts, we seek to fill the gaps that exist in providing the needed resources to keep families and their beloved pets together in hard times.

We listen to families and their individual needs.  It may be helping with funds to pay for routine veterinary care for a beloved pet. Or emergency care when a dog or cat is injured.  It even means providing resources for spay and neutering.

The State Senate of Georgia and City Council of Woodstock Georgia recognized Green Pets for their service to Georgia’s families and pets.

As Green Pets takes a moment to look back on the last 10 years, we look to the future and helping our surrounding area to “Live Green” with their pets.  Our Pets are so precious to us, as they give us unconditional love, we should all be giving them a chance to live healthy, happy and safe.

8 Reasons Never Feed Your Dogs from Same Bowl

This article from green Pets is on 8 Reasons Never Feed Your Dogs from Same Bowl.

Food bowl sharing in a multi-dog household is a really bad idea. While some owners of more than one dog feed them from the same bowl, it’s a really bad idea. All dogs in the family should be fed from individual bowls, and in separate areas of the house.

  1. One reason is that if two or more dogs are fed from the same bowl, unless the owner is standing over them at every meal, he or she can’t know how much each dog is eating.
  2. It’s important to monitor your dog’s appetite as a sign of her or his general well-being. In fact, one of the first questions most veterinarians ask when you bring your pet in for an exam is, “How’s he eating?” or “Have you noticed any change in his appetite?”
  3. Another reason to feed your pets from their own bowls is to prevent a more dominant dog from eating his meal and then pushing others out of the way so he can help himself to their meals as well. Many animals over-consume calories if fed in the presence of other animals — it’s almost a form of competitive eating. This can quickly lead to obesity in a bossy dog and lack of adequate nourishment in the more submissive dog in the family.
  4. If you have two dogs and one of them has a food sensitivity or allergy. Do you make him eat the trigger food anyway because your other dog isn’t sensitive to it, or do you deprive the other dog to avoid triggering a GI disturbance in your allergic dog? Clearly neither of these solutions is ideal.
  5. The biggest risk of a shared food bowl, though, is food aggression between dogs.In a worst-case scenario, food aggression can result in injuries to a dog and/or an owner who tries to break up a dogfight. But before the “big event,” there are usually a series of smaller skirmishes occurring at mealtime.
  6. It’s the nature of dogs to compete for resources, even when there are plenty of resources to go around. Dogs view many things as worth fighting for, including favorite toys, a special napping spot or “their” human. Food, of course, is a resource, and for many dogs it’s the most important resource in their world.
  7. This is especially true of high-value foods like recreational bones or extremely tasty treats.
  8. Dogs Prefer to Dine Alone. All household dogs, even visiting dogs should be fed from individual bowls in separate areas of the home. If you can’t physically close them off from each other, constant supervision is your only option. It’s also a very good idea to pick up the bowls as soon as the dogs have eaten, even empty bowls can trigger a problem.
