    But why, when utilizing such a visual-based medium as the internet, is there an image of a dog used to convey the message that there may be cat food out there that is dangerous?
    I understand that the ultimate responsibility falls upon the reader/pet owner; I appreciate all the efforts you make to keep us informed and our pets safe.
    I just wish pet sites, stores, etc would take the time to make it clear about differentiating between dogs and cats- sometimes just a sentence within an article or product description would make all the difference in the world, e.g. "What I've discussed here is not necessarily applicable for dogs, (or cats)," or "this remedy is not safe for dogs/cats."
    Okay, there's my vent. Allow me to thank you again for all that you do- it does not go unnoticed or unappreciated.

    We apologize for the confusion, but this image is the company logo for the Robert Abady Dog Food Co. It is not a generic picture of a dog.

    When dealing with recalls, we prefer to use a picture of the recalled product. However, a quality image could not be found in time.

    Sincerely,
    petMD Staff
