From Alexander MacKinnon via email

Apart from a general notice to pet owners, this may be worth an interview with the local Wolfville animal clinc for a local angle/follow up to this story:Pet Owners. An interview on CBC radio's Information Morning program this morning with alocal vet in Halifax stated that the pet food recall is much more serious thanearlier media reports may have indicated. Local pets are being affected andshowing up in Halifax clinics. Owners should be alert to abnormal petbehaviours. Cats in particular have been a problem because when ill they tendto just curl up and sleep, not an unusual cat behavior to begin with, but amore noticeable sign will be abnormal desire to drink large quantities ofwater.A complete list of the recalled products along with product codes, descriptionsand production dates was available from the Menu Foods Web site, The company also designated two phone numbersthat pet owners could call for information ? (866) 463-6738 and (866)895-2708
