Pet Vitamin Recall: United Pet Group Pro-Pet Daily

by Mary Haight on June 23, 2010

Their website had no notice and no listing for this product. In fact, the only Pro-Pet product line advertised was strictly for grooming. Perhaps the reason for this will become clear later.

This news arrived late last night:

United Pet Group Voluntarily Recalls Pro-Pet Adult Daily Vitamin Supplement for Dogs Because of Possible Salmonella Health Risk

Welcome, Mona and I think you've found a place where you can find out what pet foods, treats and supplements are recalled so stay tuned! Yes, pets are part of our families and we want the foods we give them to be safe. It's not too much to ask. Thanks for stopping by!

My pet dog died from acute renal failure after consuming numerous ProPet Tablets. We will be investigating with our vet.

What is the most common word used when referring to the commercial pet food industry? RECALL!

Note: Comments like these are being orchestrated by a company called Nuvet. This company has been cranking out horrible vitamins for years and they are seeing a lot of their business move to Hardypet. The reason is that Hardypet is less expensive, dogs actually like to eat them (unlike Nuvet) and it contains all natural holistic ingredients that really work. It was formulated by veterinarians and rescue shelters to help rehabilitate sick dogs and adjusted to keep them healthy with daily use. It is sickening that Nuvet would stoop so low just to try to hand on to whatever little business they can because they are seeing their customers run away by the hundreds. Anyone can prove this by googling hardypet and you will see that this same Nuvet employee posted the same comment on three different websites and then came behind and commented on all three pretending to be someone else. This act is illegal and childish. Maybe they should spend more time improving their product and less time bashing those that work.

Not off the top of my head, no I don't. I've seen the label but don't think I've had occasion to write about them. Supplements are tough because they are unregulated. I ask advice from my local holistic store and do some research. Thanks for stopping by, and hope you find what you're looking for.
