You may have heard in the news, hundreds of dogs have died and thousands are sick due todog food recall 320 jerky treats made in China, as per American federal animal health officials (this was released 10/22/13). 

They have also identified that this affects cats – with more than a dozen being affected to date. 

Dogs affected have been of all ages, sizes and breeds.  They believe the illness occurs after eating chicken, duck and sweet potato jerky treats made in China. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials are trying to determine the specific brands of treats affected and the causative agent.   While the advisories are from the states, we are concerned that these treats could be present in our region as well.  

Signs of illness can include Gastrointestinal upset in 60% of the affected pets and about 30% show signs of kidney failure or urinary problems.

Signs may include vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite, increased thirst, increased urinations, lethargy, or weakness.
