The FDA since 2009 has been cautioning consumers that chicken jerky products for dogs (also sold as chicken tenders, strips or treats) may cause illness in dogs.
In the last 2 years, there has been an increase in the number of complaints of dog illness associated with chicken jerky products FROM CHINA. Signs may include: loss of appetite, decreased activity, vomiting, diarrhea sometimes with blood, increased thirst and peeing (kidney). If your dog shows any of these signs, stop feeding the treats and call us.
No one has identified what’s causing it only that there have been the links mentioned.
We’ve had some really sick dogs at our vet clinic and we believe it was the chicken jerky.
These products are sold in the Comox Valley too and dogs love them!
Check your labels.
