Past News Releases


With massive pet food recalls in the news, medical news reporter Bette BonFleur has launched a new, free newsletter, Pet Sentinel, at, to help keep pet owners informed. As reported, more than 60 million containers of pet food are being recalled in North America due to contaminated wheat gluten, causing kidney failure and at least 15 deaths in pets.

"I'm tired of all the misinformation, lack of information and downright lies around pet food," says Bette BonFleur. "Even when something deadly poisonous isn't in the food, your pets are getting stuff you don't even want to know about, much less see. There is not one bag or can of pet food in the big grocery stores that I would feed my pets. Eventually, there will be an upside to this pet food catastrophe because pet owners are going to question what's going into big brand name pet food and look for healthy alternatives."

BonFleur is launching a free, periodic newsletter to keep people informed about the latest breaking news related to the ongoing recalls as well as helping fearful owners who aren't sure about what is really going on and what they should do about it.

In addition, pet owners will receive lots of other trustworthy information and tips including:

  • The latest Pet Medical Breakthroughs from vet schools in the United States.
  • 5 million dog bites a year in the U.S. Learning how to avoid them.
  • Improving the chances of finding lost pets.
  • Are chips foolproof? They're not. Why?
  • Kids, pets and allergies -- a new breakthrough study yields surprising results and good news.
  • Should you even consider making your pet's food?
  • How to administer cat medicine without help.
  • Common foods poisonous to cats and dogs.
  • The controversy over vaccinations.
  • The dangerous territory of purchasing drugs and supplements online.
  • More trustworthy resources to find up-to-date information.

The Pet Sentinel newsletter will be completely free of advertising and BonFleur promises that subscribers' names and email addresses will not be given or sold to other entities.

"The Pet Sentinel is purely a public service site spun off from the work I've been doing for more than 20 years at, producing Medical Breakthroughs news stories since 1980, says Bette BonFleur. "We are totally independent. Our revenues are derived from network TV affiliates covering 84 million households across the nation. No drug companies or pet food manufacturers influence our reporting. Our credibility is unimpeachable."
