In November 1997, after several years of research, Ann Martin's new book Food
Pets Die For: Shocking Facts About Pet Food (NewSage Press, $18.98 Cdn) was released.
In her book, Ann Martin reveals that the unregulated pet food industry recycles euthanised
companion animals into the meat meal which is the protein basis for pet food. This same
meat meal is also used as a protein supplement for animals raised for human consumption.
