FYI:  As of January 2015, There are many retailers that are re-introducing multiple kinds of "jerky treats" to their shelves.

Our safest recommendation for you to keep your pets safe is to NOT give any jerky treats to your pets.

 

THE MOST RECENT INFORMATION AND NEWS STORIES THAT WERE REPORTED THE LAST QUARTER OF 2013 ARE NOT RELATED TO AN ACTUAL RECALL.  The stories out now are a SAFETY WARNING as to the hazards of many forms of "jerky typed treats."

**Our recommendation is to simply not purchase ANY "jerky type" treats for your cats or dogs, no matter where they are manufactured.

If your pet becomes ill or shows signs of exhibiting any of the following symptoms, please call us or e-mail us to schedule an appointment with the doctor.  Illnesses related to these types of treats have cause in most cases, acute kidney failure or intestinal bleeding.  Please watch for the following signs.

****NOTICE****

Please keep in mind that since late last year there have been numerous brands of treats, mostly K9 that have been determined unsafe due to the inclusion of Chinese and U.S. and Canadian chicken by products. "Treats" are regulated differently than "food" items so most of these treats are still available for purchase.
