WAGGIN TRAIN JERKY RECALL
The Food and Drug Administration is appealing to dog and cat owners for information as it struggles to solve a mysterious outbreak of illness and deaths among pets that ate jerky treats.
In a notice to consumers and veterinarians published Tuesday, the agency said it has linked illnesses from jerky pet treats to 3,600 dogs and 10 cats since 2007. About 580 of those pets have died.
The FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine has run more than 1,200 tests, visited pet treat manufacturing plants in China and worked with researchers, state labs and foreign governments but still hasn't determined the exact cause of the illness, the FDA statement said.

She's healthy and ready to play. Cara, a deaf Jack Russell Terrier-mix puppy, was rescued after she was found inside a box alongside a busy highway in Brimfield. She's now healthy and ready to enjoy some time with a new family.
One of a Kind Pets in Akron have put Cara up for adoption. An ideal home for the puppy would be to be surrounded with other well-behaved dogs.
Cara received treatment for an upper respiratory infection and a hairline fracture in one of her front legs.
The OKPR Adoption Center, located at 1929 West Market Street, is open from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. To ask about Cara, or any of the other animals at OKPR, you can call 330-865-6200.

Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE is introducing a new method to help pet owners find a lost or missing dog or cat by creating our new Missing Pet Network.
“If your dog is missing, a dog license tag attached to the collar of your pet is the best way of notifying you if someone finds your pet” Scalise stated.
You will be able to post a picture and information of when the pet was last seen on our website. All posts will remain on our site for 30 days.
If anyone finds a lost dog that is wearing a Summit County dog tag, they can visit Kristen’s Kanine Search to locate the owner.
Ohio law requires that you license your dog; a license tag attached to the dog’s collar proves ownership and is your pet’s ticket home. Dogs without tags can be impounded. 2012 dog licenses can be purchased beginning December 1 through January 31, 2012. Do the right things for your dog to keep him happy and safe.
