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.
