Wysong the Crackpot Dog Food Maker



The Wysong dog food company has had some limited problems with mold in its products, and has issued a recall of some batches.

The fact that some bloggers have repeated this fact has Wysong in a panty-twist.

Well, just to throw in my two cents, my advice has always been to STAY AWAY from any dog food company that uses meaningless buzz words in its sale literature, such as "holistic."

And, for the record, that is the kind of thing Wysong does.

Here's a hint: If a company is writing their sales literature for idiots, and you are buying their product, that makes you .... well you know, right? Come on. Think it over. Ask a friend. Got it? I knew you would!

For the record, Dr. Randy Wysong, the maker of this dog food, is a bit of a crackpot.

Did you know he is a creationist and has published a book saying the earth is very young, and that there is no such thing as evolution?

Check it out at >> Amazon.

And you want to know the kicker? I could not make this up. Wysong's motto is "The thinking person's pet food."

Excellent!

Do you think "holistic" and "homeopathy" mean something? Do you believe aromatherapy and crystals will cure cancer? Have you fallen for every fad diet that has come down the pike in the last 20 years? Do you believe Benny Hinn will cure your spinal disease with a laying on of hands?

If so, then you are clearly a genius and Dr. Wysong wants you to know he considers you a "thinking person," and to prove that you are, you should buy his dog food.

And, of course, if you want to buy his dog food or his book, you will really want to buy MY very short and easy-to-read publication entitled Dog Food Secrets They Don't Want You to Know About.

"An amazing read that is guaranteed to save you money and extend the life of your dog!"


Operators are standing by!

I'd rather not buy a dog food from a creationist. I wouldn't buy a pencil from one.

This is my current favorite creationist (who hangs out with Mikey Seaver): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HS_dBla3PqM

And he's only my favorite because Kent Hovind is doing hard time.

Do I need to put Wysong on the list?

Yes. I believe I do.

You haven't really lived until you've read the print ads for Solid Gold. This afternoon, I read the first paragraph of one out loud to Sean, and he was alternately amused and astounded. How is it possible for someone so patently nuts to own and operate a major pet food company?

FYI, if you think Dr. Wysong is nutty, you HAVE to read the stuff from Solid Gold's even nuttier owner/founder, Sissy Harrington-McGill. Ms. McGill writes - and passionately believes - that Cleopatra traveled up the Mississippi river to find minerals to feed to her cats. With camels, I should add.

I'm pretty sure that it is the world's most costly dog food, as well.

If it costs more than the prescription stuff from the vet, that's probably a good indicator that something is wrong.

Then again, I have my own issues with some prescription diets. Kibble for weight loss and tooth care? Please. How about more food restrictions and exercise, and regular preventative dental care (such as toothbrushing)? It's a lot cheaper! Prescription allergy food? There are some cheaper versions (that are higher quality, IMHO) at the pet store!

Digressing...I just take issue with the fact that people judge each other as dog ownres based on how much they're willing to shell out for food. The place where I used to work pushs some of the most expensive grain-free and raw foods available...but heaven forbid someone bought a bag of one of the more common foods: "Here's a sample of something BETTER...the second mortgage you'll need to afford a year's supply is totally worth it!"
