In Good Hands
Today was Pancake's day for her annual checkup and vaccines. This is her Vet - Dr. Allison Stumpf, of Banfield Pet Hospital. Pancake bonded with Dr. Stumpf instantly and she enjoys her yearly visit here.
I owe a special debt of gratitude to Banfield Pet Hospital and vowed to be a loyal patron of theirs after the massive Menu Foods pet-food recall in 2007 which claimed at least 30,000 pets in less than a year. Banfield Pet Hospital was the only one to track these pet deaths (when the FDA refused) and was instrumental in bringing to light the need for accountability and tighter controls, tracking and regulations in the pet food industry. Thank you, Dr. Stumpf and Banfield Pet Hospital for honoring your commitment to the health and well being of those we call our beloved pets, friends, companions and babies. We will never forget this. Dedicated to my cats who were victims of that recall: twotabbycats.blogspot.com/2010/
