Make Sure Your Dog Wasn't Affected

Pentobarbital, a chemical that is often used in the euthanization process for animals, has been found in traces of a popular brand of dog food. A recall has been instated, and most of the proper steps in solving this problem are currently being taken.

According to a press release put out by the company, Evanger’s, they first received word that some dogs had gotten sick around New Year’s Eve after eating their “Hunk of Beef” brand of canned dog food. Since then, five dogs have gotten sick but only one has actually died.

That’s no reason not to take this recall seriously. Read on to find out if your dog food was part of the recall.
