Dogs may be beneficial in reducing cardiovascular risk in their owners by providing social support and motivation for physical activity. We aimed to investigate the association of dog ownership with incident cardiovascular disease (CVD) and death in a register-based prospective nation-wide cohort (n = 3,432,153) with up to 12 years of follow-up. Self-reported health and lifestyle habits were available for 34,202 participants in the Swedish Twin Register. Time-to-event analyses with time-updated covariates were used to calculate hazard ratios (HR) with 95% confidence intervals (CI). In single- and multiple-person households, dog ownership (13.1%) was associated with lower risk of death, HR 0.67 (95% CI, 0.65-0.69) and 0.89 (0.87-0.91), respectively; and CVD death, HR 0.64 (0.59-0.70), and 0.85 (0.81-0.90), respectively. In single-person households, dog ownership was inversely associated with cardiovascular outcomes (HR composite CVD 0.92, 95% CI, 0.89-0.94). Ownership of hunting breed dogs was ...

For a long time I believed that with every food recall story in the media, wed see more and more people start taking notice of whats going on in the food system - that food produced in factory environments is harming our health because everything is completely backward and geared toward the reign of big food and corporate agriculture - and that sustainable agriculture would start to become the order of the day.. Food recalls are not doing the job they should - they are not waking people up fast enough. The more we continue to support big agricultures products by ignoring these problems, the more control will be given to entities (the government) and corporations (Big Pharma and Big Agriculture - companies like Tyson, Smithfield, Swift, and Cargill who control over 80 percent of the food sold in our country) to dictate the future of food growth, production, sales, and health (or lack thereof).. The reality is, nothing will change until major modifications occur in the way we produce food. ...

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a significant pathogen in both human and veterinary medicine. The importance of companion animals as reservoirs of human infections is currently unknown. The companion animals of 49 MRSA-infected outpatients (cases) were screened for MRSA carriage, and their bacterial isolates were compared with those of the infected patients using Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE). Rates of MRSA among the companion animals of MRSA-infected patients were compared to rates of MRSA among companion animals of pet guardians attending a

Deb DAndrea, Nederland. There have been a flurry of pet food recalls since the beginning of 2017, with one of the most recent recalls being from
In March 2007, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a notice that Menu Foods, Inc., a private label pet food manufacturer, was recalling certain lots of its cuts and gravy style dog and cat food produced in its facility in Emporia, Kansas, between December 3, 2006 and March 6, 2007.. The recall was prompted after reported instances where dogs and cats developed kidney failure after eating the affected pet food. The products were packaged in cans and pouches under numerous brand names and were marketed nationwide by many pet food retailers. The FDA ultimately found that the pet foods contained a contaminated version of wheat gluten, a protein additive. The wheat gluten, produced in China, had been contaminated with a substance called melamine and a melamine byproduct called cyanuric acid. A large number of pets that ate the contaminated foods developed kidney stones and kidney disease.. The following year, melamine was also discovered in infant formula made in China. It has sickened ...

As we learned last month during Senior Pets Month, dogs need exercise to maintain strong muscles and joints, especially as they age. Without the proper dosage of a healthy diet and exercise, your dog's health will slowly decline and they will become lethargic, overweight and over all, unhappy. But, that's not all. Without exercise, dogs risk health complications such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, hip dysplasia and respiratory disease.Your dog's moods and behavior may even change, possibly becoming destructive. Think about it: After sitting at your work desk all day, don't you need a chance to burn off steam and stretch at the gym? It's the same for a dog. They have tons of energy; and if they don't have a way to burn off that energy with activity, they will find ways to entertain themselves, often at the pet owner's expense. As September is Responsible Dog Ownership Month, Deerbusters asks dog owners to keep these dog exercise tips in

In the past few years there have been multiple outbreaks related to pet food affecting the health of both pets and humans. Most people associate Salmonella as a bacterium linked to food borne illness in people food, but in recent years there have been quite a few outbreaks of Salmonella in pet food that has also affected humans. The most concerning aspect is that it primarily caused illness in small children. It was not believed to be caused by the children eating the dog food, but having interactions with the dog. After it was discovered that the outbreak was caused by tainted dog food, over 23,000 tons of pet food was recalled, and when the outbreak continued, the plant that produced the tainted dog food was closed down. There was also a pet food recall based on an aflatoxin contamination. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) categorizes aflatoxin as a naturally occurring fungal toxin that contaminates maize and other types of crops during production, harvest storage or processing1.

The Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, has increased their attention in a new area: pet food!. While the FDA is known for their attention to human food, they are now becoming active in the area of pet food. In fact, Congress directed the FDA to protect articles used for food and drink for both man and other animals. This means they must make sure that food is safe for our pets to eat, and it includes all types of pets, not just cats and dogs. The law also protects horses, hamsters, rabbits, and all other pets.. You might be asking, what could make pet food unsafe? Well, just like with human food, there could be unhealthy ingredients, or harmful bacteria, such as Salmonella. For example, the FDA monitors canned food for humans to ensure that there arent any harmful bacteria within the aluminum can. The same process is done for both canned and dry pet food.. The FDA also lists requirements for labels on pet food. There are four major requirements: ...

Weekly News. Greetings! This week our recall news deals with how Menu Foods is faring 6 months after the pet food recall first made headlines. Despite statements from the company that they didnt expect the recall to significantly affect them, time has shown the marketplace is not very forgiving to a company that has become synonomous with "tainted pet food". Next is an article about how traditional Chinese medicine is being used to help pets. We know that many of our readers are already familiar with how "complimentary" or "alternative" methods are being integrated into more and more veterinary practices and our feeling is just as there are different approaches to treating human ills, so it is with our pets health too. So, while we are not advocating any particular type of pet treatment, we are urging each pet owner to work with their pets health pros to find the right combination of health procedures to ensure that their pets enjoy a wonderful and healthful life. Sometimes just one health ...

Much of what determines pet food ingredients and labeling claims is marketing to pet owners and not the needs of actual pets. Dogs happily drink from the toilet and snack on poop, and cats dont eat the prime cuts of meat from the mice they catch and leave over the organ meats, fur and bones. If our pets arent all that discerning in what they eat, how do we know whats best to feed them? A great place to start is with Marion Nestle and Malden C.
1), (2) and (3) Unlike the case of food for human consumption, there are currently no specific safety standards for pet food commonly recognised by international organisations for reference. Producers mainly rely on the professional advice of individual experts or use standards drawn up by individual countries as reference. In most cases, the pet food sold in Hong Kong is compound formula food imported from the United States, Europe and Australia. As pet food producing countries or regions, they have their own regulatory regimes for the production, quality control and description of ingredients of pet food. For instance, the European Union (EU) has enacted specific laws on animal food. The United States has in place a single regime governing food for both human and animal consumption. In Australia and Canada, self-regulation by the trade is practised. Different jurisdictions have developed different regulatory approaches according to their own needs.

"impound or confine the companion animal without affording it. during the impoundment or confinement, with access to shelter from heat, cold, wind, rain, snow, or excessive direct sunlight if it can reasonably be expected that the companion animal would become sick or suffer in any other way as a result of or due to the lack of adequate shelter.". There is qualifying language to the shelter requirement - "if it can reasonably be expected that the companion animal would become sick or suffer in any other way as a result of or due to the lack of adequate shelter.".
