Take them back for a refund. Hit the seller with any vet bills. Complain to the store manager.

That's the only way they will respond - when it hits them in the wallet.

It won't help (or at least it won't completely solve the problem) to check the "made in" label. Remember, the food that caused so much trouble a couple of years ago was made in the U.S. and Canada...from ingredients made in China.

I think one big hole in our food safety is that there is no source required on most food.

I just checked the sack of beef carry outs from wally world and sure enough they are made with chicken. it only says they are distributed by a company here in USA and nothing about china at all. BUT I did buy them at wally world so I would guess they came from china.

I lost some cats to that big China pet food poisoning back in 2006/7 - it's horrible that these foods are allowed in the US.

This is the food our two dogs get Dog Food: Natural, Holistic Dog Food, Cat Food and Pet Treats

They do make treats but we have not seen them in pet stores yet. I think we will be requesting them though.

Thanks for the warning. We normally use Science Diet Sensative Stomach and the freeze dried liver treats that were first provided as a sample from our Vet. Will have to stop by Petsmart to check labels on what we have as we repackage both food and treats into more air tight containers like Tupperware.

You can easily make your own treats using beef or pork livers. Just use the microwave to dry the livers and then break into bit size pieces. The only drawback is it does smell when drying them in the microwave. I used this method for years having learned about it during my years of handling a police dog. You can also get large beef bones from your butcher, cook them well and then let the dogs have them. Just never give animals bones that tend to splinter such as chicken bones or small bome that they could swallow and choke on.

We have a small dog, a Maltese mix about 14# and we feed her Science Diet dry food and Cesars wet and have never had a problem. We also use Beneful wet. As best as I can determine both of these are made in the USA. We also found a chicken treat made by Purina that we have substituted for the jerky which we stopped using after the first scare. Can't remember the name but it is available at Petsmart and shaped like an ear and is soft. Our dog loves them.

From a nutritionist perspective its better not to feed treats to dogs at all, they have hight amounts of sugar, MSG, artificial flavor etc and they rot their teeth. Better to have the dog on a good raw meat diet with the occasional bone. Its cheaper too...

Watch out for Wal-Mart dog food. A year ago Dec. I was feeding our dog the Old Roy kibble & bits type, the Vet asked what were we feeding him, he said it was probually stale, $900.00 trip to the Vet, he had to stay over night, so no more it's back to Science Diet and Milk Bone treats.

It's very difficult to BALANCE the diet when raw meat is fed. I looked into this a few years back. Vitamin and mineral supplements must be added and in the correct amounts per lb of meat.

PetSuperMarket carries the bad stuff. Also, the chicken disks are made in china. The U.S. distributor is PCI. I informed the employees in the store long ago but since it's not their store or their pets it sorta went in one ear and out the other. I even went onto their website and emailed them which apparantly changed nothing because they are still selling the bad chicken strips and disks.
Anyway, I changed my dog over to the BilJac Liver treats some time ago. He never got ill but better safe than sorry.

I make homemade dog food for Harry so I know exactly what he's eating... and he doesn't get any packaged "treats." He loves cheese, so occasionally I will give him a small piece of cheese as a treat. In the past our other dogs always loved rawhide chews, but I stopped buying ANY food product from China back when the last Chinese dog food scare hit.

I read the Waggin' Train package which claims to be made to US standards and... I don't trust them. But they did explain why so many come from China -- dark meat is prefered by Chinese people, leaving the breast meat for pets.
