Cat food recalled for inadequate thiamine level
Commissioner of Agriculture Tommy Irvin is alerting Georgians to the recall of some cat food manufactured for Premium Edge because it contains an inadequate level of thiamine.

Symptoms displayed by a cat with a thiamine deficiency may include in coordination or muscle weakness, paralysis of the hind limbs, seizures, lack of appetite, vomiting, ventroflexion (bending towards the floor) of the neck, dilated pupils and abnormal eye movement called nystagmus. Any cats fed the recalled food that display these symptoms should be immediately taken to a veterinarian.

*****************And now we'd like to you visit Baxter, a 19 year-old therapy dog. He died October 16, but what an inspiration and comfort he was to those who were also in the last days of their life. Moments With Baxter has a blog with photos, information on his book, and misc. information. All proceeds from his book is being donated to animal and hospice charities.
There are a number of articles on the web. One is at examiner.com.
And if you haven't seen it, you will enjoy this video of Baxter. He became a therapy dog the last 4 or 5 years of his life. During that period, he became unable to walk, but he still visited patients.
If the video doesn't play, you can find it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIrDbzoOxZc
