FDA Pet Health & Safety Widget

You may have noticed something new on my sidebar today. I found this great new widget from the FDA today and I knew I had to have it on my blog. But what is it exactly?

The widget is designed to share important pet health & safety tips and updates, including pet product recalls. That's so awesome! We all need to know about pet product recalls in order to stay safe. The content on the widget is updated by the FDA so all you need to do is put it on your blog and check it for updates. If I can do it, anypug can!

The FDA even hosted a webinar last week for bloggers which I was unable to watch. The webinar featured speakers from the FDA and focused on the announcement of the widget, how to install it and use it. They even had a Q & A session. See what I miss when Mom is away? Sheesh!

The widget has a tips section which contains info on how to report a pet food complaint and how to purchase drugs online. This section is a work in progress and I'm hoping they add additional tips as the widget grows. The updates section has lots of great information about recalls, reminders, and cautions. It seems to me like the updates section has lots of tips so this is the section I will probably use the most.

You can get the widget by simply clicking on the "Grab This" link at the bottom of my widget. This will copy the code for you to imbed in your own sidebar. Please pass the info about the widget on to all your friends so that all of us can stay healthy and safe.

Hi Tweedles! I really feel on top of everything now - thanks for the compliment. I'm still getting caught up on all my blogging so you never know what I'll find next.

Hi Dana & Penny! I'm so glad you like the widget. Mom freaks out when she hears about pet food recalls because she always thinks about the poor pets that got sick because of bad food. Hopefully this will save lots of lives and keep all pets safe.
