Taking care of our furry friends in Texas is very important. I mean, who doesn't love seeing a dog pop their head out a window while a car is stopped at a red light? Also just playing with puppies is what some describe as "heaven."

But besides playing with our furry friends, you have to make sure they're taken care of and fed properly. Various different types of food exist for every animal, so there are choices for owners. However sometimes though, special food is required for any animals when they aren't feeling their best.

One food that is given to owners only via prescription has been recalled after it was discovered the food in question does more harm than good to dogs.

Purina Dog Food Recall Across The Nation

The United States Food and Drug Administration recently announced that Veterinary Diets EL Elemental Dry Dog Food which is produced by Purina, is under a recall for higher levels of Vitamin D in the food. While Vitamin D is important to an dog's overall health and well being, too much of it could be a bad thing.


Vitamin D Toxicity, as is it called, results in various effects to dogs, such as excessive drooling, renal (kidney) dysfunction, vomiting, loss of appetite, increased urination, and increased thirst.

If you have recently been prescribed the food, you are encouraged to simply throw away the food. If your dog has consumed some of the food in question and shown symptoms listed above, owners are encouraged to speak to their veterinarian.

Bet You Didn't Know: 10 Bizarre Texas Laws Still on the Books

Many states still have strange laws on the books that aren’t enforced or taken seriously anymore, and Texas is no exception.

Most of these laws are just funny now, but at one time, there was a valid (or at least somewhat valid) reason for them to exist.

Texas has plenty of strange rules and regulations that you could technically be prosecuted for if you violate them, since they've never been amended. Some of these are only for specific cities and not state-wide, but all of them are pretty odd!

Let's take a look at 10 of the weirdest ones in the Lone Star State.

Top 20 Restaurants Central Texans Wish Would Come to Temple

A while back, I asked the good people of Temple if they could picture a good restaurant to fill the lot on North General Bruce Drive where the soon to be torn down Long John Silver's stood.

This was before it was announced that a Dutch Bros. Coffee location would open there (which was one of the places I predicted as a contender in our article).

So now Dutch Bros. is open in that spot, but the responses to my survey were interesting because they paint a picture of just how diverse Temple's population is. People recommended some familiar restaurants with locations in the surrounding area, but also a few I'd never even heard of.

Here are the top 20 results of the survey. Let's see what the good people of Temple are craving!
