Treat kills dog

I know most everyone here knows about treats made in China, but here's a reminder.

That is so sad, scary, and maddening. I just saw an ad on TV last night for those, too.
I made some homemade treats for Lizzie and she LOVED them. Unfortunately, there were WAY too many and they got moldy. Next time I will freeze most of them.

I just received a lovely gourmet dog biscuit treat gift for my dogs, I graciously thanked the sweet person who presented me with the gift and as soon as I could, I threw them out. It is just not worth the risk. It is too easy to cook chicken and freeze it. Just my thoughts.

I'm surprised word isn't out to everyone and people are still finding out these are dangerous in the worst way possible..that and they are still being sold on the shelves I just was these at Target the other day!!

SO tragically unnecessary and sad

That was terrifying reading. The last statement about 90% of the products being safe is astounding to me. That's like playing Russian roulette with our beloved animals. We should make sure we warn everyone we know.

Word of mouth is the best. When in the pets stores or even grocery store I see people looking at the Bully Sticks (an example) I speak up and nicely mention to check WHERE they are made. I always see China and Paraguay. Never purchase those. Once I picked one up and it did state made in USA then after putting on my glasses lol I noticed in small letters USA/Paraguay

I notice people also want to purchase the cheapest price/bigger bag or box) item but our Havbabies or any breed for that matter is a family member ..They are priceless! When in doubt about where something is truly made don't purchase. Never take the chance.

Aha; so in my other post, in your "horrible diarrhea" thread, I didn't need to mention the chicken jerky!

The bully sticks I have say they're made in Brazil. Is anybody aware of any problems with those? They're the only ones carried in my local pet stores.

It's getting harder and harder finding safe treats and toys. I try and read front and back on packages for Bully Sticks. Only get those Oven Baked in USA. I have found one brand that stated on front made in USA but on the back (in tiny tiny letters) it stated USA/China. What did the company just package it here in USA but really made the stick in China The one thing to look for is OVEN BAKED other wise it is sun baked exposed to flies and bacterias, those are usually made outside of the states. I'm wishing Cooper wasn't such a voracious chewer. I tried soup bones from grocery store and he hates them..fussy little furball lol
