Some brands of jerky treats have been pulled from the shelves. They are Milo's Kitchen Chicken Jerky treats, Chicken Grillers, Waggin' Train and Canyon Creek Ranch dog treats.
Personally, I am wary of ANY chicken related treats especially as of late. In the past week, my Chihuahua Pokey has been vomiting several times. We called our Vet and they told us to give her a tiny bit of Pepto Bismol and don't let her eat for 24 hours. We had a hunch that either her food was causing her to be sick or the dog treats that she eats. After the 24 hours, she ate dog food and no treats that day. She was fine the next day. The following day, we gave her some treats. The day after that, she was vomiting again. Needless to say, we stopped giving her the treats and she has been fine since.
My mom told me that she was giving her dogs Milo's Kitchen chicken jerky and one of her Chihuahua's was having spells where she would lose consciousness. She took her dog to the Vet and they couldn't figure out what was wrong with her. After they took the Milo's Kitchen chicken jerky off the shelves, she obviously stopped giving them to her and she hasn't had a spell since.
With that said, my dog's weren't eating any of the treats that were pulled from the shelves. This is what they have been eating for years.
My other dog's don't seem to be effected by this at all just Pokey who will be 12 years old in April.
Now, I am completely scared to give my dog's any treats at all. I don't know what is safe and what isn't.
A couple of months ago, we were thinking about switching to Blue Buffalo treats since our dogs eat Blue Buffalo dog food. They use all natural real meat in their food. After further review, we found the treats they offer are really expensive. When you have 4 dogs that can really add up.
I am so confused about what I should do. I am even thinking about making my own treats to be completely safe.
I just wanted to share my story. Please be careful of what you are feeding your beloved pets. They are a part of our families and need protected.
