    The vet, Dr. James Kurzydlo, quoted here speaks ungrammatically, with misplaced modifiers. This makes the Rebecca Vargas posting difficult to understand. What comes from China--the dogs or the jerky treats?

    Dr. Kyrzydlo may be a fine vet, but perhaps Vargas could have interviewed another vet, who speaks standard English. These quotes may embarrass Dr. Kurzydlo and Forest Lakes Animal Clinic.

    What happened to the vet's list of symptoms? Vargas should conclude her sentence even if the vet did not conclude his.

    What problem has been going on for years? The melamine, which does not need to be in quotes, problem is not the present problem.

    Where in the U.S. did hundreds of pets die from the jerky treats imported from China?

    What steps that Vargas says consumers can take should be taken aside from the obvious--not buying jerky treats exported from China and imported by the U.S.?

    Why is proactive hyphenated?

    What is Millie Oberman's title? Who is "they?" Is "they" the Pet Supply Center, location unknown? If so, "they" is a store," not a plural pronoun.
