Posted on the Living with Leishmania page on facebook. Regular readers will have read Ann O'Connor's article on her experience with her podenca Livia. Here's what she says about the above subject.
'Here is an interesting article on the dangers of molds that grow on plant proteins used in animal food, like kibble..."These molds are potent carcinogens which have been directly correlated to adverse health effects, resulting in both acute toxicity and chronic health problems in pets; problems such as liver cancer, in many animal species." I think this could compromise a leish positive dog's immunity seriously. This article focusses on the US pet food industry but it would be interesting to see if there are similarities in other countries.
