Warning: Jerky from China
Dogs should be watched closely for decreased appetite, lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea, increased water consumption and increased urination. If signs are noticed, stop giving the treats and consult your veterinarian. Blood tests may indicate kidney failure or other forms of kidney dysfunction. Most dogs have recovered, although a few deaths have been reported. The FDA is working to determine why these products are associated with illness in dogs.
