FDA Pet Health And Safety Widget

The FDA Pet Health & Safety Widget allows you to get information directly from the Center for Veterinary Medicine. You can view the Tips tab, or choose the Updates tab to see important pet health updates. If you have a pet related website, you can grab this widget for your site.

The FDA uses press releases to announce, among other things, cat food recalls. Sometimes these announcements are missed by pet owners.

While this widget doesn't guarantee prevention of future tragedies, it may be a way to speed the message to the pet owning public when there is a potential pet health threat.

I currently have mixed feelings about the potential effectiveness of this, especially since we know that the announcements from the FDA may be late with respect to pet food recall notification. Still, it seems like the FDA is taking a step in the right direction in trying to get the message out faster to a wider audience.

Update: This widget hasn't been updated in a long time and appears to have been abandoned. The FDA RSS feed that the information comes from, however, is still valid as of this writing.

As an alternative solution, I would suggest using the RSS feed in an RSS reader, such as Feedly.
