I scheduled blood test for both my dogs for Wednesday that's the soonest they could get me in. Seems like I'm not the only one doing this the office is swamped. Both my dogs seem ok but I figured I better do it since I I had been feeding the Ol Roy in the pouches with their evening meals.

Apparently this whole thing has been very good for the organic pet food industry. I make an effort to feed the dogs as well as I possibly can and in some cases that includes organic foods (I just picked up a bag of Blue Buffalo - it looks nice and the dogs like it but it's too soon to tell whether or not it makes any kind of
difference), but the truth is that I have absolutely no idea where the ingredients for even the organic foods come from. After all, that e.coli-tainted spinach was organic.

Anyway, I hope everything comes out okay.

"Organic" apparently doesn't guarantee the proper bathroom habits of spinach pickers.

Ditto. This is a horrible, heartbreaking nightmare.

Looks like they would be looking for a rat poison - aminopterin. Knowing that will apparently help the vets with treatment.

What possessed you to do such a thing?

The ecoli doesn't have to come from the human pickers. The manure that is used as fertilizer can be tainted and the vegetables or fruit grown in it improperly prepared and washed. Thus the ecoli that was in the soil doesn't get rinsed from the product produce surface.
I personally use O'l Roy to put weight on my strays and transfer them to the goodstuff afterwards. It's kinda like feeding them junk food. It is better than what they were not eating. In my personal opinion

In the case of the spinach E. coli outbreak, it was cattle, not humans.
