Toxin Roundup is in your pet's food?

The toxin Glyphosate (known as RoundUp) is a chemical toxin that is worse than you think..

Whatever you are giving your dog/cat should be free of any toxins

In my opinion virtually every dog and cat can benefit from a good quality Omega 3 Fatty Acid Supplement.  

Dr. Jones' Ultimate Omega 3 Formula for Dogs and Cats is 100% natural, full spectrum, organic Antarctic Krill Oil, rich in EPA, DHA, Phospholipids and Astaxanthin.

RoundUp™ (Glyphosate) is in your Pet's Food


Dr Jean Dodds:

Cornell study finding Glyphosate in Pet Food:

Dogs Naturally Magazine:

Due to several recently won or pending civil lawsuits, many of us know of the herbicide glyphosate – commonly known as RoundUp™ and by other tradenames – as a potential cause of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Are there other diseases that have been linked to and might be connected to use of glyphosate?

Yes; links have been found to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and DNA damage. Endocrine and reproductive issues due to glyphosate have been studied, but the results are conflicting. Other researchers postulate that glyphosate may cause kidney damage, celiac disease and gluten intolerance.

But don't worry...even though The herbicide glyphosate was detected in all dog and cat foods tested by researchers at Cornell University.... it appeared at levels equivalent to concentrations considered safe for humans.

Yes the EPA and FDA say it is SAFE to consume a known carcinogen

Are our pets affected by glyphosate?

In Europe, poison control centers do keep track of this. They found acute glyphosate poisoning in companion dogs and cats that led to fatal outcomes in some instances. Of course, this exposure is commonly from eating grass or walking on freshly sprayed ground.

When it comes to chronic exposure, the research is so limited or conflicting that researchers have had to apply the human acceptable daily intake amount to our pets.

In 2016, researchers in New York tested 30 dogs and 30 cats for glyphosate levels. They found widespread presence, and that glyphosate was twice as high in cat urine than in dog urine. They applied the acceptable daily intake amount for humans to pets and stated that the levels were less than that threshold. While this research is important and gives us a standard to work with, inevitably dogs and cats deserve their own species- acceptable daily intake levels.

Another group of researchers at Cornell University looked at the amount of glyphosate in 18 commercially available companion pet foods.

Glyphosate was detected in every product.

The concentration of glyphosate concentration was correlated with crude fiber content. Meaning, it is a strong likelihood that the glyphosate came from a plant product.

The average daily intake of the glyphosate from all products combined was estimated to result in exposures that were 0.68–2.5% of that for humans in the United States and European Union.

However, the most contaminated pet food would result in glyphosate exposure that was 7.3% and 25% above the average daily intake for humans.

Overall, commercial companion pet foods have so much glyphosate, that pet exposure is 4–12 times higher than of humans on a per kilogram basis.

In fact, one of the researchers on the project actually switched his dog’s food based on these results.

Here is a partial list of some of those pet foods

Most kibbles contain GMO ingredients like corn, soy and beets. Every dog and cat food they tested contained glyphosate.

Purina Cat Chow Complete … 0.102 glyphosate/mg kg -1

Purina Dog Chow Complete … 0.098 glyphosate/mg kg

Kibbles-n-Bits Chef Choice Am Grill … 0.300 glyphosate/mg kg

Friskies Indoor Delights … 0.079 glyphosate/mg kg

9 Lives Indoor Complete … 0.140 glyphosate/mg kg

Rachel Ray Zero Grain … 0.022 glyphosate/mg kg

Iams Proactive Health … 0.065 glyphosate/mg kg

Rachel Ray Nutrish Super Premium … 0.140 glyphosate/mg kg

Purina Beyond Natural – Simply Nine … 0.047 glyphosate/mg kg

Dovetailing on this, a more comprehensive research project is in the works at the Health Research Institute Laboratories (HRI). They are measuring the levels of glyphosate in pet urine as well.

What they have found thus far is astonishing based on survey answers.

  • Cats are averaging 8 ppb which is 16 times more than that found in the average of human urine.

  • Dogs are averaging 15.8 ppb which is 32 times the human average.

  • Dogs that eat raw food have virtually no detectable glyphosate.

  • Those that eat canned food have more.

  • Those that eat dry kibble have higher levels.

  • Those that eat grain-free kibble have the highest levels. It is believed that the movement to grain-free diets using ingredients such as oats, pea protein, chick peas and lentils may be a cause.

  • The researchers have tested crops like oats and legumes and they deliver the highest glyphosate levels to human consumers.

How To Reduce Glyphosate Exposure

1. Don’t use Roundup and other herbicides yourself. Encourage your neighbors to do the same thing.

2. Avoid areas where Roundup has been sprayed - where I live that includes the forested areas that have been logged 😞 the areas where it is completely green and there are no dandelions...parks, lakes, schoolyards, golf courses.

3. Feed your dog/cat fresh foods and buy organic whenever you can. This can reduce the amount of glyphosate in your dog’s food.

4. Avoid commercial kibbles and canned foods as much as possible.

5. If you use commercial foods, choose GMO-free foods.

P.S. In my opinion no level of this pervasive toxin should be considered safe for pets or people

Spraying it all over the forests and killing ecosystems...

'RoundUp' ready crops: Farmers are encouraged to spray corn/soy/legumes with RoundUp as it kills all the weeds and produces higher yields... and this is now in our food system.


P.P.S. Here's what Clinicians Brief has to say about Omega 3 Fatty Acids:
