A study concerning BPA (Bisphenol A) being used in the lining of dog food cans has recently been published. I do not know to what extent this is used in the UK. I asked Lily's Kitchen back in Dec 2015 if they used BPA in the lining of their dog food tins, they assured me that none of their tins are lined with BPA. Another company I contacted did not know off hand and they would have to ask the manufacturer. I will pursue this further with them in the New Year.

Supplements / Re: Wormwood Complex

I use a natural worming product so I'm always interested in anyone's views in this field. I have never used this product and would also be interested in any feedback. I'm just wondering how effective this would be against Lungworm. It may be worth asking Phytopet's views on this. Have you considered regular worm egg count testing and Lungworm screening.
Thanks for sharing.

A new to the UK, dog food company Edgard & Cooper (Belgium) has been added to the Top Ethical Companies section of The Good Shopping Guide. I'm not sure if their dog food range is available to buy in the UK at this very moment  If not, then according to the Pat Show link below it should be shortly.
Their UK website only has contact form at present

I'm not sure when Rockster ultra premium wet dog food was first introduced into the UK but thought it was worth sharing. It is made in Germany. £4.95 per can.

Pegasus, Rebden, Tigger69 and Dottie thank you for taking the time to comment on the article.

A recall has been issued after flea and tick treatment labelled as flea drops for dogs containing Permethrin were distributed in packaging labelled as flea drops for cats.
Exposure to even small quantities of concentrated Permethrin can cause severe and fatal poisoning in cats.

A Vets blog, video's and supplements. Vince the vet has a range of supplements that he mentions in his interesting blogs and video's, I have never used them myself however in my opinion it's worth dropping by for a read and a video view.
Vince is also on UK Health Radio where he talks on a variety of subjects

Feather meal is mentioned in the current AADF opinion poll. I don't know how many dog foods are out there that uses feather meal, Royal Canin have their ANALLERGENIC product which contains feather hydrolysate with low molecular weight (source of L amino acids and oligopeptides) which is available in the UK.
An article from Dr Becker
An article Why pick on feather meal in pet foods
A video from Rodney Habib where he talks about the recent Dr Oz show that featured a segment on pet food which contained feathers.
