    Hello, Ms. Thixton.
    My name is Se-won Kim, and I live in Seoul, South Korea.
    Honestly, I want to question someone.
    In Korea, several cats ate some organic cat food, named , but they are getting the urinary disease after one year later. However, company said that it is not related their cat food.
    but I take care of one domestic cat, so I am really nervous.
    would you answered this question that the organic cat food is related this pet’s disease?

      I am not a veterinarian – so I am not the best one to decide if the pet food is the cause. But I believe it certainly could be a cause. If the food is manufactured in the U.S. – please encourage each cat owner to report the issue to FDA. Here is a link to do that online: http://www.fda.gov/AnimalVeterinary/SafetyHealth/ReportaProblem/ucm182403.htm Make sure everyone submits veterinary records to FDA as well. Also if there is a veterinarian you visit that is willing, collect copies of all the of health records and pet food history of each cat and ask this one vet to go over all the records to try to figure out if there is a link to the pet food. Having one veterinarian look over all the records could help – and then this veterinarian could also submit a report to FDA. Please keep me posted.

    Thank you very much for your answer, Ms. Thixton.
    it’s very useful for me.

    Sadly, and I am truly sorry for you,
    when I confirmed the pet food after I wrote this mention yesterday, it is manufactured from South Korea.
    They were only confirmed to USDA about their organic ingredient.

    But I had a hint about this problem for your answer. Thank you.
    So I will concern to submit this report for Ministry of Food and Drug Safety in South Korea.

    Thank you for your help and have a nice day!
