Delray Beach, FL (PressExposure) May 14, 2008 -- Florida Institute of Yeast announces Pet Protectâ¢: an affordable, user friendly home test kit for pet foods, wet or dry; the test is also EPA approved for water testing.
In 2007, a major manufacturer of pet foods recalled millions of containers of its products; the tainted food caused kidney failure and some deaths of cats and dogs. The reports mentioned pets showing symptoms of vomiting, lethargy and unwillingness to eat. Symptoms include an increased water intake, increased volumes of urination, anorexia, vomiting and lethargy.
While widespread incidents of tainted food are thankfully not frequent, pet owners are likely to be mistaken if they believe their petâs food and water is safe in the absence of an industry recall. The truth is, your bathroom toilet bowl water is freer from bacteria than your petâs food or water bowl.
The kit contains a security taped sterile Petri dish, a bottle of diluent and a bottle of growing media, both security taped and quality control inspected, and a sterile pipette. Pet Protectâ¢ is currently available on line at [http://petmessodor.com] or by phone 561.577.7202.
