In an article last November, I reported on the very real danger of future widespread aflatoxin contamination of commercial pet food, primarily dry dog food. Thanks to the very hot, dry summer of 2012, experts predicted U.S. corn crops would be heavily infested with two types of mold -- Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus.
These molds produce metabolites called aflatoxins. Aflatoxins cause acute lethal illness and cancer in animals and humans, and are among the most carcinogenic substances on earth. Aflatoxins poison the liver, and their carcinogenic properties can lead to tumor formation.

There are some common signs of cancer pet owners should be on the lookout for.
Cancer is a common cause of death in older dogs but by learning to recognize the signs, pet owners may be able to catch the disease early and increase the chances of treating the problem.
Just like humans, dogs are susceptible to different forms of the illness and taking animals for regular check-ups at the vet is the best way of identifying any issues.
Dr Gregory Ogilvie, a California Veterinary Medical Association member and director of the California Veterinary Specialists Angel Care Cancer Center in Carlsbad, California, told Canine Cancer: “It is crucial for pet owners to take their pets to the veterinarian twice a year to monitor them for early signs of the disease.
“Routine blood tests also can help identify problems early.”
However, there are also signs pet owners should be looking out for themselves, with lumps or swellings something to keep an eye on. If sores do not heal it can also be a sign something is wrong, while dogs that pass blood or have difficulties going to the toilet could be suffering.
They may also find it difficult to eat or drool excessively, while sudden weight loss or changes in attitude could mean something is wrong.
As with most things, prevention is better than cure and Dr Ogilvie explained pets should get plenty of exercise and not be exposed to harmful cigarette smoke to lower the risk of them suffering from cancer.
The right dog food can also help to prevent the development of the illness and animals should be fed high-quality products that are rich in protein and full of nutritious ingredients.
