So... I just read chicken jerky strips from China are a big no no for dogs. Not surprising, since it's from China.
I have half a bag left. I didn't even think when I bought it. Just thought: chicken strip = chicken = natural. Apparently not, if it's from China - duh!
Usually, Roshi only gets a broken small piece of jerky when he goes into his crate at night. It's rare I feed one full strip to him, but I do when I go out for longer periods of time to keep him entertain with his Kong.
I'm not sure if it's the strips or Roshi has an overactive/sensitive stomach. For the last 2-3 months, he pukes up bile in the morning about once every 1 or 2 weeks. Never before the chicken strips.
Sigh. I know deep down I should just throw out the bag, but I hate wasting food. I grew up with parents that if only one end of the orange is moldy, you cut it off and eat the other end.
Roshi is family. And we all say, we should feed our family well. Yes. But do we really? Do all of us really grow our own gardens, raise a farm, and hunt to feed our family members? Or do we buy groceries from stores that are provided by corporate farms who spray our food with pesticides and mass produce genetic altered livestock? I still see huge line-ups inside and outside McDonalds. And yes, I am part of the line up!
Or these food/health announcements just often exaggerated to make people paranoid about everything?
I know I'm trying to justify not throwing the bag out because of my cheapness. Sigh. Ok. I'll go throw it out now before I get any flack.
