Poisonous Jerky Treats Kills Hundreds of Pet Dogs
3000 dogs and 12 cats since 2007
600 of the dogs have died.
There is no particular brand, as several brands are linked to the tainted jerk originating from China.
Within hours of eating treats sold as jerky tenders or strips made of chicken, duck, sweet potatoes and/or dried fruit, some pets have exhibited decreased appetite, decreased activity, vomiting, diarrhea (sometimes with blood or mucus), increased water consumption, and/or increased urination.
