15 Jun Dog Treats: Are You Putting Your Bully’s Life in Jeopardy?
Not all dog treats are created equal. The latest update from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) indicates dog treats are more lethal than suspected.
According to Fox News:
“Over 1100 dogs have been killed after eating tainted jerky, with ingredients made in China. The Food and Drug Administration has been investigating since 2007 and they still don’t know why the treats are fatal.”
And pet illnesses and kidney-related diseases continue to wreak havoc on furry companions. In fact, the complaints are still coming in to the FDA, Fox reports. Most complaints have been tied to chicken, duck and sweet potato jerky dog treats.
