Ann Martin was the first to expose the fact that euthanized cats and dogs are common ingredients in many commercial pet foods. For this second edition, the updated and revised version of the grassroots bestseller, she expanded her research to find that pet food can also contain diseased cattle, contaminated meat, moldy grain, roadkill, and rancid fats from restaurants. Also new is a chapter on how cats and dogs are used to test the nutritional claims of pet food ingredients.

Ann N. Martin has been investigating the multi-billion dollar, commercial pet food industry since 1990. Her research has garnered special recognition from Project Censored, sponsored by Sonoma State University's school of Journalism, as one of the most important yet underreported news stories. Martin is internationally recognized as an authority on the commercial pet food controversy. She has written a second book on animal companion health care, "Protect Your Pet: More Shocking Facts," Martin lives in Ontario, Canada.From Publishers Weekly:
Food Pets Die for: Shocking Facts About Pet Food by Ann N. Martin was the first expos‚ of the shocking practices within the pet food manufacturing industry. Since the book's publication in 1997, she has been calling attention to the dubious ingredients and methods employed by many firms. And in this updated guide, Martin continues to put pressure on the big companies to find alternatives. She suggests that if acceptable commercially prepared food is not available, food can be made at home using safe and human-quality ingredients, and she provides recipes and suggestions for supplements.
