All I hear about are cats and dogs. Seems like no one is in the least bit concerned if food contamination has affected our beloved guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, rats, hamsters, lizards, frogs, turtles, tortoises, etc. (except that one guy who posted about fish food). (EDIT: thank goodness for this web site, it's the only one I've found that even carries the statements from small pet food makers, keep up the good work).
For all of us whose small pets suddenly got sick and died without warning right around the time of the recall, we'll never know. We'll never get any closure at all. And there's no one on the 'net or in the government who even seems to care, never mind doing anything about it.
I hope all you cat fanciers and dog lovers can appreciate how much we loved our sweet little guinea pig who purred when you stroked his sides. Watching him die miserably from sudden, spontaneous kidney failure at only 18 months old was heartbreaking.
I'm sorry about your beloved Guinea Pig. We had one when I was little, & she was pretty special. I don't think most of us here only care about cats & dogs, it's just that my only 4 legged family member is a feline, so that's what I write about.
I have a friend who's very much into small parrotts. Interestingly, she finally posted a couple times on her bird lists regarding food safety & told me she found very little interest. Because the FDA is playing "cover thy corporate rear" we will probably never really know who & how many were killed from this nightmare.
Take the highest number we can find & multiply it by.............?
