Something to think about
This is something that those of you who have corn in your pet's food might want to think about and be careful. http://truthaboutpetfood2.com/gosss-wilt This little part is the worst of it all. I am not a fan of genetically modified crops (because of what they can do to native species). "Besides the risk of aflatoxins with grain ingredients, there is another concern. In researching Goss’s wilt, the main chemical in Monsanto’s weed control product Roundup – glyphosate – kept being listed in Google searches for more information. Many experts around the world are linking glyphosate to plant diseases – including Goss’s wilt and serious health risks including birth defects, genetic damage, cancer, neurological and behavior changes, brain tumors and more." I'm glad I don't have corn (or any grain) in my cats' food! Sunny has presented me with a twist recently. I have not changed her food yet and I'm watching her closely because she has NOT been sick in over a week (great!). I got the cats some cat grass and I'm wondering if she is simply not eating the plant that was making her sick now that she has her own plant. If she is NOT allergic to fish, that makes me really happy because avoiding fish in cat food is very hard. So, once I finally figure out what's going on, I'll let all know. For now, I'm going to stick with the current food and see what happens before I change foods.
