Toxic Jerky Treats Responsible For More Than 1,000 Dog Deaths
Be careful what you feed your dog.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently issued another warning about toxic jerky treats, and it seems the poisonous pet snacks are still a problem.
As of May 1, more than 1,000 dogs have died as a result of the toxic treats. The FDA has received 4,800 reports of pet illnesses since 2007, 1,800 of which were submitted in the months following the agency’s last warning in October 2013. Even though 25 percent of these complaints were “historic” claims — meaning the illness occurred some time in months or years past — the jerky products appear to be an ongoing source of sickness for both cats and dogs.
So far, the FDA has been unable to pinpoint why so many pets are getting sick and developing kidney-related diseases. However, the majority of cases appear to derive from consumption of a jerky treat that was imported from China.
