Ann Martin was the first to expose the fact that euthanized cats and dogs are common ingredients in many commercial pet foods. For this second edition, the updated and revised version of the grassroots bestseller, she expanded her research to find that pet food can also contain diseased cattle, contaminated meat, moldy grain, roadkill, and rancid fats from restaurants. Also new is a chapter on how cats and dogs are used to test the nutritional claims of pet food ingredients.

I had heard over the years about euthanized pets being used in pet food. I was shocked at the amount of research done by the Author, and in particular, at the prevalence of this activity in my region, as well as across the USA and Canada.
