You NEED to be sure that the ingredients in the product are all “Sourced in the USA” to be safe!
I have 3 dogs that have almost died or have died from toxic dog treats Oct, 2013. PLEASE be careful buying store bought treats! Much critical care has saved 2 out of 3 so far but with severe kidney & some liver damage…
As I am writing this, well over 10,000 dogs have died from treats that have ingredients in them that were made in China (most of it is). This count is not even close to the numbers of dogs that have gotten deathly ill, then recovered after long term critical care with vet bills in the thousands. I had 3 adult dogs that were in prime, perfect condition suddenly get deathly sick and lost my little Chipper from complete kidney failure… It was a terrible death… The other two I was able to save but only after long, very intensive care.
Chipper’s body was sent into FDA for autopsy along with bags of all my treats (lots of different kinds – I spoil my babies). Our FDA is working to find out which ones killed so many dogs. I want to save as many people that I can from the sadness & devastation of watching their loved dogs deteriorate, suffer & die such a terrible death.
My dogs were young adults in their prime! -all three were in perfect condition. Here is a picture of little Chipper just 1 day before he ate the toxic treats.
Meanwhile, throw away all treats that are store bought. Some folks think if the treats say “made in USA”, not just “distributed in USA” that they are safe but not so. Dog food/treat companies arec not required to list where the ingredients are obtained (unlike food for human consumption). The ingredients may come from China and be toxic. If in doubt, just use human food as treats. Again, You NEED to be sure that the ingredients are all “Sourced in the USA” to be safe! I cannot say this enough!
Secondly, its nice if the treats are also healthy!
