Excellent to see Nicole Paley quoted in this BBC News article about a Transport & Environment (T&E) Study looking into the diversion of important pet food ingredients to biofuels, which will ultimately be worse for the planet. The story also got a mention on this morning’s Today Programme. Nicole explains that these animal fats are valuable ingredients, which are hard to replace and they are already put to good use by our industry in a very sustainable way.
On 26 August, the FSA issued an updated statement, which highlighted that following extensive wide scale laboratory testing, no causative link between the recalled cat food and feline pancytopenia has been established.
The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) are currently investigating a spike in cats presenting with the symptoms of pancytopenia. This is a condition which causes a deficiency in all types of blood cells. Symptoms can include fever, pale gums, blood in the urine and faeces and bleeding from the nose.
The PFMA is aware of the recent media coverage in the Daily Mail/The Mirror, which reported shocking and clearly unacceptable welfare conditions for farmed rabbits in Europe. Both articles claim that rabbits are farmed to meet the demands of the UK pet food industry, however this is not the case.
