Tainted Pet Food Scare Prompts Mass Recall: Today's Cartoon

You know, as insensitive as this may read to other pet owners, I was actually somewhat relieved to hear that the latest contaminated food scare to hit North America, did not effect humans. It seems like every other day there is some new health crisis being played up by the media, as a means to scare the wits out of the public; all in pursuit of higher ratings. So, it was kind of nice to not be the one who had to be afraid for a change.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a responsible and loving pet owner; but something tells me that my dog isn't going to get bent out of shape, constantly worrying if the food she's eating is going to make her sick. Heck, half the time she doesn't even know if what she has is food, at least until she starts chewing it; and at that point, she no longer cares. Look, all I'm saying is that pet's are either too dumb to realize what threatens them, or way too smart to constantly obsess over it, like we do.

To put this in perspective, out of the millions of dogs and cats in North America, only 10 have been fatally affected (thus far) by the tainted food; plus an additional 7 through direct testing with the contaminated product. Now, compare that with the number of pets that are hit by cars on a daily basis and you'll see that in reality this "crisis" ranks somewhere between FDA tainted pet-food tester and Lassie’s stunt double.
