     In China, over 80% of people worry about food safety. Excessive pesticide use, illegal additives, diseased livestock, and "gutter oil" are their primary concerns. If one billion people are scared of their country's human food supply, then this one American is scared about the pet food it's exporting for our dogs and cats.
     From pesticides, feed additives, heavy metals, coal tar, and other toxins, this video looks at the environmental conditions in China that are poisoning China's people and their pet food exports.

This video really got to me. A small dog named  Teriann has captured my heart, and am concerned. She's 10 years old and I want her to have a long and happy life.
 There are ingredients we need to watch for...that is known to be added to our pets food and is toxic to our pets health.
"Ethoxyquin is listed and identified as a hazardous chemical by OSHA. It has a rating of 3 on a scale of 1 to 6, with 6 being super toxic requiring less than 7 drops to cause death.
When manufactured by Monsanto, the containers are marked with the word POISON. Monsanto makes no representations and will not be responsible for damages of any nature whatsoever. The Department of Agriculture lists and controls Ethoxyquin as a pesticide.
But Doesn't the FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) protect our pets from these harmful chemicals?
Here's an excerpt from the same October 1994, FDA Consumer Bulletin, that gives information regarding required pet food labeling. A mandatory read for every pet owner.
