According to the Detroit Free Press, Michigan is one of 15 states affected by a new recall of dog food.  The pet food company, Evanger’s is voluntarily recalling some of its dog food after a drug (pentobarbiral) used to anesthetize or put down pets was found in it. Pentobarbital can cause side effects in animals such as drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea or even death.

The company has said that several dogs have been affected with the recalled dog food–five dogs got sick and one has unfortunately died.
