    Awesome idea! After I printed off the first copy and was looking it over, I wondered about adding to reporting it to where you purchased it. One of the first places I will take the poster to is my friends grooming and boarding facility. She also sells pet food. I know she would want to know if someone bought a product from her that harmed an animal.

      The Report It! webpage gives a bit more information than the poster does. We’ll (Mollie and myself) will see if/where we can add that info on the webpage.

    I quit using Science diet dog foods due to contamination. I noticed that when the rain washed away the “brown stuff in his poop a pile of blue colored “balls” about 1/2 BB sized and bone and plastic fragments made up a good part of it.
    I kept several; pics of it and took it to my vet and the nutritionist said “He must have got into something”. Yea, every day for months! Think not. I still have the pics if anyone is interested! Will email them to whoever cares.

      Thank you for your candid report. I have had my suspicions about Science Diet pet food for years. In fact, I took my elderly kitty off KD when it was prescribed for him and put him on a single-source protein high-quality food, instead. He lived another five years and eventually died of something else!

    we’ll be printing this to put up in our store & give to customers. Thank you Susan for your tireless work to keep our pets safe!

    I will post a copy of this at my local pet store, they are very involved with recalls and pulling items off the shelf. I found out they now are developing their own data base to warn customers about tainted foods if they are sold in the store and then recalled.

    You have so many Canadian readers and much of Canadian pet food is manufactured in the US. Do you have comparable information for reporting to Canadian authorities?

    1. Susan Thixton Author

      I’ll see what I can find out for Canada – will let everyone know.

    I’m looking for similar resources for Canadian cats – information on where to report it to… other than to your vet, to the food retailer and the food manufacturer. Many of the commercially available pet foods in Canada are marked as “FDA” approved, so it’s probably worthwhile even for Canadian pet parents to report to FDA as well…? Thoughts or comments from other Canadians?

      I’ll make some calls – see what I can find out for Canada. I’ll make a separate poster – Report It! Canada as soon as I know.

        Thank you so much Susan! As best as I can tell it’s a confusing mix here, with three possible governing agencies involved – Public Health Agency of Canada, Health Canada, and The Canadian Food Inspection Agency, and as far as I can tell from what research I’ve done, even the Canadian Veterinary Medial Association doesn’t seem clear on who’s responsible for what… Any information you can dig up for a Canadian version of the REPORT IT campaign would be very much appreciated!! Thanks for all your wonderful work Susan

    I think we need this in Canada as well and like Flick, Dot and Buzz was saying a lot of our commercial foods come from the US so I have shared in all my social media !

      I live in Canada. The best place to report this to would probably be the CFIA. Although they do very little about it they did get back to me quite quickly when I inquired about why the chicken jerky treats were not recalled in Canada. I wish there was a better place to report pet food problems to in Canada but unfortunately I don’t think there is.

    Wonderful! We’ll be posting physically and virtually everywhere we can.

    What a fantastic idea Susan! WTG! Your one smart Cookie or Puppy Biscuit! 🙂

    One question though, is it ok for us to somehow share this poster on Facebook, and or twitter as well?

    1. Susan Thixton Author

      Share away! and thank you!

    Great idea for a Canadian version of the report it! Poster; I was thinking the same thing! Thanks for all you do Susan 🙂

    I belong to a yahoo group that all the members are all Brittany owners, I posted the Post it campaign on the site and asked all the members to print the poster, make copies, and distribute to their vet, groomers, doggie daycare, etc. We have over 100 members in Florida, Georgia, North & South Carolina, Colorado, and other states. The posters are going to be all over the country.

    It is a great idea

    Thank you again for all you do.
