Tambi Renee: Be Careful With Manufactured Pet Foods

18 Feb

Tambi Renee is a firm believer in keeping her pets out of harm’s way. While there are indeed many ways to protect your animal from the dangers of common household items and behaviors, there is now a new method that many may not be aware of.

Tracking the ingredients in food that is specifically-designated for dogs and cats can help a pet owner better monitor their pet’s diet, says Tambi Renee. According to TruthAboutPetFood.com, a recent Center for Disease Control study found that people working in a pet food plant in Missouri were at risk of getting ill from certain ingredients they work with every day. TruthAboutPetFood.com poses the question: If these ingredients are harmful to humans, how can they not be harmful to people’s pets?

Tambi Renee believes education is necessary to combat the risks of potentially dangerous ingredients in mass-manufacture pet foods. Tambi Renee believe that every pet owner should check their pet food labels before feeding their dogs and/or cats. Certain grains, flavoring additives and even pesticides were found by the CDC in their study of the Missouri pet food plant were making their way into the processed pet food. Tambi Renee is aware of the risks of certain popular pet foods and is tenacious about what her cats eat.

Tambi Renee has always been a lover of cats, and she has always believed they deserve the best protection possible. Responsible pet owners like Tambi Renee set strong examples to those looking for better ways to take care of their animals.


Tambi Renee Passionate About Animal Health

11 Feb

Tambi Renee takes an active interest in her pets’ health, and hopes that everyone else take simple steps to prevent common causes of illness and premature pet death.

Common foods, household items and even houseplants can be lethal for dogs and cats. It is easy, says Tambi Renee, to confuse things for being harmless and to inadvertently poison a pet. Tambi Renee has an intense love for her animals and takes the time to research the things that may be harmful to a pet’s health and life.

Many of the things that can negatively affect an animal are things humans consume on a daily basis. Tambi Renee recommends keeping things like baby food, citrus oil extracts and fat trimmings away from or out of an animal’s reach. Each of these items can lead to severe health problems that can not only be costly, but also potentially deadly to a pet owner’s best friend.

All pets, says Tambi Renee, deserve an owner that has a vested interest in their animal’s health and quality of life. Maintaining an active interest in what a pet consumes in just one way a person can take good care of their pet, says Tambi Renee. It’s easy to be negligent and not be aware of the risks of everyday food items to animals. Tambi Renee makes every effort to keep her animals out of common foods and to feed them only specifically-approved foods. It’s no easy task, but monitoring your pet’s diet can help that animal live a long and healthy life.

Pet Food Recalls Information from Tambi Renee

30 Dec

In a recent study of pet foods, the FDA declared that, across all of the samples tested, they found contamination almost exclusively in raw pet foods, with one exceptional case in a dry cat food sample. Animal rights activist Tambi Renee has taken a closer look at the study, however, and concluded that there is something suspicious afoot over at the FDA. After examining the time period during which the samples were taken, Tambi Renee concluded that there was not a single raw pet food recall. Processed pet foods did not fare so well.

Rather than the single case of dry cat food contamination reported by the FDA, Tambi Renee found that during the period of the study, the United States was faced with the largest recall of pet kibble in its history due to salmonella contamination. This recall, says Tambi Renee, affected numerous pet food brands, including Diamond Dog and Cat Food, Natural Balance Dog and Cat Food, and several others.

Tambi Renee thinks that clearly something is wrong with the numbers here, or the FDA has found itself in an awful lot of confusion. As Tambi Renee points out, either the FDA has failed to follow its own rules with regard to zero tolerance for salmonella by not recalling those raw pet foods, or they did not, in fact, inspect those pet foods cited in the study. Similarly, did they forget about the massive pet food recall when tracking the statistics on pet kibble? Perhaps there is some forgetfulness afoot, but more likely, says Tambi Renee, is government blowback against raw food diets.

Tambi Renee on Raw Diets for Your Pets

27 Dec

Recently, the FDA released a report steering pet owners away from feeding raw diets to their pets. Raw diets, claimed the FDA, saw a far greater incidence of bacterial contamination than other pet food products. According to animal rights activist Tambi Renee, however, this warning is misguided. Raw diets are, in fact, at a much lower risk for contamination and also provide better nutrition. Additionally, raw foods, says Tambi Renee, do not contain salvage food products that have been unequivocally declared unfit for human consumption, and should also not be fed to pets.

According to Tambi Renee, raw food diets can be prepared at home and can leave your pets with healthier skin and fur, as well as cleaner teeth. Pets eating a raw diet consisting of meats, fruits, and vegetables also typically have more energy. Tambi Renee counters claims by the FDA that raw pet food diets also pose a risk to human handlers and may result in unbalanced diets for pets, noting that humans should only be handling meats that they would otherwise eat themselves, and that it is not difficult to establish a healthy raw food diet in consultation with your pet’s veterinarian.

In contradiction to the study by the FDA, Tambi Renee notes that there have been no recent food recalls of raw pet food (some pet owners choose to purchase pre-made raw diets), while there have been significant recalls of processed pet foods. Tambi Renee asks, if raw pet foods were so dangerous to our health and the health of our animals, why hasn’t the FDA recalled any of them? Perhaps because, as Tambi Renee argues, these foods are not nearly as dangerous as they are made out to be.

Tambi Renee Reports on Salvage Food and Your Pets

17 Dec

As pet owners, we all aim to feed our pets high quality food that will meet all of their nutritional needs. What most of us have never considered is the fact that processed pet foods for sale in supermarkets and pet stores could be putting our pets at risk. Tambi Renee has shed light on the dangerous state of pet food today and the use of salvage food products by pet food manufacturers with little to no oversight by the state or national government.

According to Tambi Renee, there are salvage food companies that work to resell what are known as “distressed” food products and turn a profit for themselves and the company where the products originated. Distressed food products have been exposed to temperature extremes, smoke, water, or other potential contaminates that have made them unsuitable for human consumption. They may also have lost their labels and become unidentifiable. What Tambi Renee points out is that these foods, through salvage companies, remain in the pipeline as food products for pets.

What is particularly disheartening about the resale of distressed food products, says Tambi Renee, is that pet food companies don’t have to label their products to note that they contain what is essentially waste. Tambi Renee says this is a fraud against consumers and a crime against pets. Now is the time to carefully look at what you feed your pet, says Tambi Renee. What are the ingredients? Where did they come from? If you can’t answer those questions, Tambi Renee says, it may be time to change pet foods or embrace a raw diet for your pets.

Tambi Renee Wants Consumers to Remain Aware of Food Recalls

You are what you eat. How many times did you hear that growing up as a child? Of course, if you eat a lot of string cheese you are not going to become a stringy cheesy monster, but too much imbalance does impact overall health. What is more, the quality of food you consume impacts health, too. Years ago, the United States and other countries developed regulations and organizations to ensure food manufacturers use real food products and practice safe food practices.

Food contamination is a great concern, especially as people go outside the home to eat. You may be suspicious if you get sick after eating out that something about the food was bad. But it doesn’t take a restaurant to create food safety hazards. Tambi Renee tells people that bad food can come straight from the slaughterhouse.

Tambi Renee asks people to pay attention to all cases of food poisoning. Oftentimes, widespread cases make media news, but Tambi Renee suggests people go online and look for any food recalls as often as possible. Food warnings and recalls aren’t necessarily tied to meat, either. Tambi Renee points to the cantaloupe that led to the hospitalization of many people.

For safety’s sake, Tambi Renee asks people to take food recalls seriously. It is easy to think bad things happen to other people and not yourself, but Tambi Renee knows those people thought the same things about themselves. Tambi Renee also asks consumers to pay attention to pet food recalls too.

Pet Food Concerns Matter to Tambi Renee

30 Oct

There are many social matters Tambi Renee remains aware of but one of her recent concerns is the frequency of recalls in pet food due to confirmed or potential Salmonella poisoning. Food safety is important to Tambi Renee because it affects the quality of life for people and animals. Just recently, hundreds have been affected by the chicken processing plants in California. The Salmonella contaminated chicken has made over two hundred people sick and was consumed by both people and animals.

Tambi Renee remains focused on a whole issue of pet food matters. One of her focuses is the type of food people feed their animals. Obviously, the healthier foods are those that most closely resemble the animals’ natural diet. For some, this means more animal protein and less of the animal-byproduct people have become increasingly aware of. Similarly, Tambi Renee wants people to know that giving treats to animals is fine, but human foods should not be given as treats because some may be potentially hazardous.

The quality of food truly does matter. Humans want to eat the best quality foods possible and the same would be said for animals. Tambi Renee hopes pet owners pay attention to pet food recalls. If there is a health concern tied to pet food, pet owners should heed all warnings. Some of the products recalled in the last year include: dry dog food, heartworm medication, pet jerky, and frozen pet food. Tambi Renee wants pet owners to be aware of pet food recalls because across the nation, there is a recall nearly every month of the year.
