With thoughts of Jack and the Crystals
So I have been obsessing over what on earth could have caused Jack's problems.. Then I saw this..
Catswell treats.. the salmon and the chicken, and he got a few of each over the weekend..
It still doesn't make a whole heck of a lot of sense, as I didn't give out that many and he didn't eat all that I gave out (but a lot, a good portion of The Crew was totally not interested in them) I got them for free from PetSmart (they had a FB promo) and while I wasn't overly thrilled with the ingredients, I figured as treats what harm could they do..
I'm not saying this was the cause.. but it is seriously making me think - and I doubt I'll be giving any more of them to my kitties.. I don't want to risk it. Now the question is do I bring them back to the store??
the products in question are being recalled because of the quality of the meat involved. it comes from China where they use antibiotics and other ingredients that make the chicken unacceptable to be sold to the humans of the US. Petfoods have no such restrictions. I can not imagine the quality of the chicken caused Jack to develop urinary crystals, but I can not imagine anything else he ate did either. I haven't pinned anything on this, it is just the one thing that has changed in my house in the past two weeks, but I will keep thinking about it..
