Killing of stray dogs... 7:12 AM
I had a phone call from Erdek today. Seval, an animal rights activist who lives in Erdek, told me that Hseyin Sari, the mayor, is preparing kill stray dogs on Monday, 1 May 2006. Erdek is known killing dozens of dogs by using Cyanide last year. (Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Uludag University, confirmed that Cyanide had been used.)

We got the news from a municipal worker who talked to Canan Hanim, the head of municipal veterinary organization.

Next week, a festival will be held by sponsorship of Firatpen, a Turkish construction material firm, in Erdek. Kadir Buyukbag, the municipal worker, and his team will cleanse (!) the roads. It means that they' re gonna kill many dogs in Erdek. And they will use Lystenon, a strong neuro-muscular blocker drug of which useage for euthanasia of animals is forbidden.


Please, write to Hseyin Sari, the mayor of Erdek, and tell him to stop killing stray animals.

The Local Goverment of Erdek, Balikesir, TURKEY

You may think the Diamond food scare is over, or that only a limited amount of product is involved. Not so.

On Monday, March 6 - after 3 feedings of Diamond's Premium Edge  Chicken, Rice and Vegetables - we almost lost 3 of our 4 GSDs. The  only reason it didn't effect the 16 week old is because we kept her  on other feed.  Within 20 minutes of ingesting their dinner, 2 of the  dogs proceeded to 
vomit dark green undigested food and within another  2 minutes they were foaming at the mouth and stiff-leg gaiting.  Another 5 minutes and they were having what I - as a nurse - would  refer to as petit mal seizures. After a traumatic night at the local  emergency clinic, the diagnosis was "food intoxication from Premium  Edge kibble".

The following day, upon contacting Diamond in Meta, Missouri, I was assured they would work with me in this and stand behind their product....the reimbursement for any and all vet care, etc was also Discussed. Upon asking for financial assistance for a test Diamond requested at Cornell ($300.00/dog minimum) - a test that per my vet  and 
those at Cornell said was a CYA call on Diamond's part - they  changed their mind on "helping out". I refused that particular test,  awaiting results from another analysis on samples.

Notification came yesterday from University of Missouri Vet Met Diagnostic Lab: "Each of the four submitted samples of dog food  contained approximately 0.5 ppm of vomitoxin, as detected by thin  layer chromotography...".

Judging from no reference to this on Premium Edge's website  (incredible how many products Diamond makes but very difficult to  trace back to them - each feed/product seems to have it's own website/ contact), no contact as of yet from Diamond and certainly no  "standing behind" their 
product it appears they are not overly  concerned about their consumers.

Research your food thoroughly. If it is even remotely related to Diamond - DO NOT FEED!! If you are so inclined, please write concerns  to Diamond - you can reference me if so desired. My particular  contact was  Dr. Brookshire, Director of Veterinary Services.
