This has caused me a great deal of stress, time off work, money and possibly the lives of my animals. Joanne of Bentleyville, Penn. When her cat refused to eat the Iams Select Bites pouches Joanne brough home, she let her border collie eat them. The dog died a slow death from kidney failure.

New York officials say they've detected that chemical, too. Henderson said the melamine-tainted wheat gluten came from a new supplier, who imported the ingredient from China.
He said the company stopped using that supplier after dogs and cats across the country showed symptoms of kidney disease or died after eating Menu's pet foods. Henderson said pet owners shouldn't worry about the safety of the cat and dog food the company is now producing.
