Well talk about the voluntary Hill's food recall. We'll talk about how the FDA recalls quite a few raw food diets and how people have actually gotten smaonella just handling raw food diets. We'll talk about how Hill's is doing something very commendable!

We will also talk more in depth about Gastropexy, or stomach tacking. This procedure is used to help prevent life threatening bloat.
