Does anyone know if OMH, Wellness or Wellpet are still making their supplement line, "Welltabs"?

I can't seem to find any information on their websites, but this product is still on distributor order forms and is mentioned in Marion Nestle's new book.

I was trying to find out if their products did still include menadione.

It appears that OMH biscuits still do, and menadione is listed as an ingredient in Welltabs in "Feed Your Pet Right".

I found it extremely odd that Wellness would remove menadione from their food lines in response to consumer pressure and keep this potentially dangerous (and completely unnecessary) substance in their treats and supplements...

Thx peg for the info. Alas, there is that 'hydrolyzed' word again. Hope we all learned from the hydrolyzed vegetable protein recalls. If it has hydrolyzed in the food - I run, not walk away from it. Wouldn't touch it with a 100' pole.

Thanks, peg!

Although I wonder if they're not just burning through the rest of their stock.

Most of the sites I could find that carried the product displayed photos that are very old - there's been at least one (if not two) label updates since these photos were taken - leading me to wonder if the site is up to date.

Just curious.

Note: This product has been discontinued by Wellness. The original manufacturer for Wellness still makes this product under their Pet Naturals Daily Best brand.
