PMI Nutrition International has determined that additional Mazuri' and LabDiet' products fall within the scope of previous voluntary recalls, and is expanding a voluntary recall to include the additional varieties with specific lot codes listed below due to the potential for elevated vitamin D levels. Elevated vitamin D levels may cause death, or otherwise be harmful to animals and fish if fed for extended periods, potentially resulting in lack of interest in eating, weight loss and possible joint stiffness.

I have a friend that has two dobermans, Duke and Annabel, and she got so fed up with all these dog food recalls, she now 'cooks' her own dog food for them.  Lots of ground meats and even fruits & veggies and some brown rice etc.  She makes up a huge batch once a week (she said it costs her about $15/week unless she uses beef instead of chicken) and freezes it in gallon-sized ziplock freezer bags.  She thaws one out each night for the next day's meals for them.  Sounds pretty good to me, but I never have the time or energy to do all that work.  LOL

Even easier than that.. Go raw. Folks who do, swear by it.

Raw is not for me... for one thing we live in Mexico and I would be fearful of ecoli. ( even if we didn't.. I'd still be leary..)

another thing:

Skye likes her chow... We tried the Raw thing. She decided that the cats food was better and the cat decided he didn't mind, as long as he could eat her food. lol I've got a little wierdo.
