A La Cañada veterinarian has diagnosed three dogs with the kidney failure that has been linked to the recent pet food recall. According to Susan Dietrich, DVM of La Cañada Pet Clinic, three dogs in various stages of kidney failure have been treated at her office. They all had been fed pet food that has been recalled by Food and Drug Administration in recent weeks. "[At the beginning of the outbreak] we were unaffected," Dietrich said. That all changed last week when three animals, all from different families, came in with signs of kidney problems.

   In the wake of the recent pet food recalls, (see www.avma.org for more information), the idea of home-cooked pet food has grown in appeal to some pet owners. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) warns that preparing a meal for a pet at home is no simple task. While our pets are an important part of American households, they have very unique nutritional needs. Most importantly, the AVMA warns pet owners against feeding pets table scraps or human food in lieu of commercial pet food.

The ongoing pet food recall by the Food and Drug Administration has now expanded to pork and poultry. According to an FDA report, five states including California have quarantined hog farms and one poultry farm in Missouri due to concerns that feed was contaminated with melamine, the ingredient linked to kidney failure in dogs and cats. Salvage pet food from manufacturers that are part of the pet recall have been traced to these farms. Test results have shown traces of the contaminant in the hogs' urine.

We are fortunate to live adjacent to wild areas. But this must be treated with respect. Several of our local neighborhoods have recently been visited by mountain lions, bears, coyotes, bobcats and more. While these animals have no intention of doing harm to humans, this is a serious situation that requires homeowners to take personal responsibility. Prevention is the best solution. We all need to do our part to ensure wild animals don't find easy meals around our homes. Once bears or other animals find food in residential neighborhoods, they often come back looking for more.

Montrose resident Firoz Khan said he was driving to an appointment around 7:25 a.m. Wednesday when he saw the bear on Chevy Chase. Khan estimated the bear is between 250 and 300 pounds. “It was walking on the street and then when it saw two or three cars it started to jog,” Khan said.

What is La Cañada Flintridge, chopped liver? The bear that visits Glendale homes and trash cans has two names - Meatball and Glen Bearian, his own Twitter account, paparazzi to greet him when he's in town and taxpayer-funded chauffeurs who take him back to the forest after his city sprees. The bear that keeps showing up in La Cañada? Nada. Maybe it's for the best that our bear not become the toast of the town. Officials with the state Department of Fish and Game keep saying they don't think that Station fire-related depletion of the forest is the reason bears are visiting, but it sure seems that more bears are around this year, and that they are more persistent.
