You think things could not get any worse....Death of a pet from the recall

My mother lost her dog to the food recall last week.... He was healthy, happy senior boy. It all happened so fast. He was happy, playful and then after he ate his dinner he became lethargic and did not want to move from his spot by the dinner table, my mom thought it was an upset tummy and tried to give him an aspirin. I dont know why my mom thinks asprin cures all wounds but he did not want any part of it. Later on he got himself to bed. In the morning my mother found throw up all over the house and Luke dead in his bed. She could not take him to the vet because they had a major snow storm so she took him downstairs and covered him with his favorite blankie. Finally the next day she was able to take him in. She did not run an autopsy so we dont know 100% for sure if this was the reason but all symptoms add up to it and given he was 100% healthy with no issues whatsoever it makes sense. She fed both her dogs Pedigree mixed with Wet Ol'Roy canned food and has been doing this for years. Her other dog Nika got through it okay, but Lukie died. Lukie was a senior compared to Nika who is only 3 years ol.
My sister's Beagle also got sick but thankfully recovered.
My mother recently had EColi from the Peter Pan Peanut Butter recall. Bad luck is going her way.
This is all so fresh after just loosing Bagel the foster beagle to a horrible euthanisia.
I am praying 07 gets a little better....

I am very sorry to hear about Luke's death. And like you said, so close to the loss of Bagel.

I hope that Luke didn't suffer.

If I remember, the Ol Roy can was on the recall list.

Becky -- I am so sorry to hear your news. I was so hoping that our BW pets and honorary pets would make it through this unharmed. Please let your mother know that she is in our thoughts and prayers.
I am so sorry. Please express my sympathy to your mother. Take care of yourself.
oh no Becky ..... I'm so sorry ....give your mom a big hug from Beagle World .....
My sympathies go out to your mother as well. I see there are some lawsuits arising from this whole unfortunate food contamination.
I am so sorry.
My thoughts and deepest sympathies to you and your family.

I had been watching this case and I didnt realize Ol'Roy was on the list-that is the kind I feed my dogs I believe (the walmart brand?)
I had better check on this, the story makes me terribly sad that your mom's poor pup was gone so fast!! sighs

Becky, I am so sorry for your mother's loss. What a horrible thing!
Oh I'm so sorry! Let your mother know we are thinking of her and Luke. I'm also thinking of you as well! Lucky and I send our love!
I had hoped our beagle world would not be affected by the recall but I am so sorry to hear this news. Please pass along our regards to your mother. I do hope your year gets better.
My condolences on the loss of Luke. I hope things start getting better for your family.
I wonder if there will be any reprocutions for the company? If this were someones child the lawsuit would be worth millions.

Looks like it: http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/03/22/pet.food.recall/index.html

Considering that dogs are considered "property" and unless the loss of the dog is a proven monetary loss, a much loved pet isn't worth much in the eyes of the law...it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
I'm so sorry to hear about all the losses in your family.
OH...this is SO sad!!! Im so sorry
