A Canadian veterinarian who specializes in dogs’ health has found that a popular dog food sold by Petco is killing their immune systems.
Dr. Julie Marder, who heads the Veterinary Health Laboratory at the University of Guelph in Ontario, said she has been testing the deworming and dewormers used by pet owners and vets since the beginning of the pandemic.
She said the deworms she tested were killing about 50% of dogs.
She said that while some of the dogs that had been tested did not appear to be dewormed, the majority of the tested dogs had died.
She told the CBC News Network’s This Hour Has 22 that some dogs had been exposed to the virus from contaminated food and had been euthanized.
“We had about 10 dogs that tested positive for the virus,” Mardar said.
“That’s about 60 dogs.
That’s a big number.”
The results of the testing have been released.
In an interview with CBC News, Mardars chief of veterinary medicine said she believes the dewormers in the Petco products may be causing the dogs’ immune systems to fail.
“The way that they’re packaged in a lot of the cases, they look very much like other food products,” Margar said in an interview.
“They look like deworm and de-wormer that is sold for dogs.”
But she said she did not believe the food was to blame.
“I’m not convinced that it’s the product itself, that it is a direct factor in the disease,” she said.
Mardar is a member of the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association, which is trying to raise awareness about the dangers of using dewormering products.
“There is no doubt that the risk is high.
There is no question in my mind that it was the packaging and not the product,” she told CBC News.”
You’re taking something that is probably safe for humans and putting it in a product that’s not.”
In a statement to CBC News in April, Petco told the BBC that the de-worms in their deworm products were not made with the use of synthetic dewormants.
“Petco has been and continues to be committed to supporting responsible pet owners in their health and wellbeing,” the company said.
“Our goal is to ensure the health and welfare of our customers through a rigorous and rigorous process.
In the case of pet food, we are currently reviewing all of our products and will provide updates in the near future.”
Marder said it was a shame that this information was being used as a way to make more money.
“My heart goes out to people who have been affected by this and they don’t know that their pets are being affected,” she added.
“I want to help as many people as possible, but I can’t do it on my own.”
