FDA Tries To Prevent Pet Death With New Regualtions On Pet Food

Sure all dogs go to heaven, and cats have nine lives, but that doesn't mean we don't want to keep our pets safe while we have them and now the Food and Drug Administration is getting involved.

This morning the FDA proposed new regulations that will, for the first time, govern production of pet food and farm animal feed. Marcie Sillman talks with Daniel McChesney, director of the Office of Surveillance and Compliance at the FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine about the new regulations and how they will be implemented both domestically and abroad.

Produced by Arwen Nicks.
