Pet Jerky Treats Could Make Your Animal Sick
Recently the United States’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA) received numerous reports from consumers and veterinarians about thousands of dogs and cats getting sick from jerky treats. The FDA wants to know if your pet has also experienced illness because of a jerky treat.
According to the FDA:
Minor symptoms of the sickness caused by the treats include increased water consumption and/or increased urination. Extreme cases have lead to kidney failure and gastrointestinal bleeding. Although some jerky treats were removed from the market in January 2013, there are still others on the market. The FDA urges pet owners to be cautious before feeding jerky treats to their pets.
