What is pentobarbital and how might it affect pets?

Pet food with the labels Gravy Train, Ol'Roy, Kibbles N' Bits, or Skippy Premium, can be returned to the store for a full refund.

A drug created to kill animals was found in canned dog food causing the latest recall.

The FDA says low levels of Pento Barbital were found in the cans of Gravy Train produced by the JM Smucker company.

Pentobarbital is a barbiturate that is commonly used in putting down animals. Products that contain this compound are considered adulterated.

The FDA is investigating the potential source and route of the contamination. "We have narrowed the focus of our investigation to a single supplier and a single, minor ingredient, used at one manufacturing facility". It also assured customers that it is working hard to meet and even exceed its safety standards.

Before Anthony got the door shut, he was shot five times and was the last of the shooting survivors to be in critical condition. The page continues: "Our thoughts and prayers are with Anthony and his family". "I only ask that people pray for him", he said.

Still, the FDA is conducting its own investigation into the matter, especially since the presence of pentobarbital in pet food is in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

Any pet owners who believe their dog ate the contaminated food and became sick should contact their veterinarians. It said it does not use meat from euthanized animals in its pet food.

Cats have also been impacted by the pentobarbital in their food, they tend to be more sensitive than dogs.

Pets that consume pet food with pentobarbital may experience symptoms such as drowsiness, loss of balance, dizziness, nausea, excitement, and an inability to stand. However, in large doses, it can be lethal.

The FDA said its preliminary evaluation of the testing results of Gravy Train samples indicated the low levels found were unlikely to pose a health risk to pets.
