We the pet owners of America are urging you to ban the use of synthetic vitamin K menadione in pet food. Many complaints have been made to you & to companies concerning Purina Beneful & Ol Roy. Symptoms of ill pets are common such as vomiting, diarrhea and seizures. We believe these dogs are allergic to this drug. It has been reported by personal experience that these dogs symptoms disappear after taken off the dog foods that contain menadione but some have died because their owners were not aware. We urge you to investigate this matter promptly.

Menadione is a synthetic (man made) form of Vitamin K. Dog food manufacturers add it because they say it is nutritious. It has been BANNED for the use in human supplements but dogs eat it everyday because companies add it to their dog food. It can cause liver toxicity, induce allergic reactions & weaken the immune system. Many have reported complaints to the FDA, Purina Beneful & Ol Roy but they all continue to state their dog food is nutritious even though dogs have became ill and even died from eating their food. Please sign the petition to demand the FDA take action, spread awareness & save our dogs. To date the FDA leaves the use of this controversial drug to the manufacturer when it needs to be banned.
