CAUTION: Chicken Jerky Treats

The FDA continues to warn pet owners about illnesses associated with certain chicken jerky/strip treats.  There has been an increase of illnesses associated with feeding dogs these treats.  Warning signs include decreased appetite; decreased activity; vomiting; diarrhea, sometimes with blood; increased water consumption and/or increased urination.  If you dog shows any of these symptoms after being fed one of these treats, please consult your veterinarian.

The FDA has been warning pet owners about these treats for over three years now.  A rise in illnesses has prompted them to re-release these warnings.

The FDA press release can be read here.

Thank you for this information. My Vickie is going to send it out to all our friends at Canine Country Club.

Hope you are having a nice Sunday

Wow, this is a little older, but it's so good to know! I actually just bought my pup some of these for Christmas, and now I'm going to throw them out and not invest in them until they are given a green light by the FDA... thanks for the warning!
