Pet blogs and Web sites discuss the poisoned pet food recall

Some Web sites dedicated to pets and pet owners are listing many more sick and dead pets related to the pet foods contaminated with rat poison, than the Food and Drug Administration or Menu Foods have listed. This information has not yet been confirmed, but we should all be aware of it since many of these reports have been made by veterinarians who claim to have treated these animals.

I’ve checked out some of these Web sites and here are five that I think you should take a look at if you’re interested in finding out more about this mess:

** LBReport.com is a blog that discusses the pet food recall. It appears to have a lot of up-to-date information:

** Veterinary Information Network is a web site for an organization of 30,000 veterinarians and vet students. It also has this separate Web site for non-members (that’s you and me), where you can read more information on the pet food recall problem:
http://www.veterinarypartner.com

** PetConnection.com is a pet information clearing house that hosts a popular blog. It says that large numbers of owners have reported dead pets. This is also one of the most up-to-date information sources on the pet food recall I’ve been able to find since it started:
http://www.PetConnection.com

** Dogster and Catster say they are Web sites for cat and dog “freaks.” They are blogs that contain lots of information on pets, ads, chat rooms, where cat/dog people can talk about things and lots of other stuff. The pet food recall mainly occupies their thoughts at the moment. You are required to register and get a password to browse these Web sites:

If you know of any other Web sites that you think should be shared about the pet food recall, please pass them along. Thanks!

    Thanks for making this list Gary.

    I think people would want to know about menufoodsvictims.blogspot.com. The stories of victims are being posted there.

    The Dogster Dog Blog has been covering a lot news.

    Maybe this tragedy will show Washington that dogs and cats are actually people too.
