I hope this is the right forum to post this. I didn't see any other forum for pets.
This is not my situation, but was posted on another forum, and I thought I would share it with you.
The reference mentioned in the website is from last September, and although it's outdated, I feel it's still relevant, as there is probably bad food/treats still floating around on store shelves. Please check your pet's food and/or treats.


"I am sure we all remember that horrible situation last year about the food from China that killed a lot of pets, both cats and dogs.

Well, it is not over yet folks, here is part of a warning I received from trusted friend and breeder:

"Please be aware that many Chicken Jerky treat brands that are manufactured in China have been making small dogs very ill along with killing them. Symptoms are: lethargy, vomiting, diareha, and anorexia (total lack of appetite except for the treats). To see this alert from the American Veterinarian Medical Association go to www.avma.org click on Pet Food Alert line and then click on Chicken Jerky Treat alert.)
Our two adorable Cavalier King Charles puppies, Lacie, 11 months, and Misty 7 months old, had been eating Smoke House Chicken Jerky treats from Petsmart on a daily basis (not as a supplement for their food, but as a treat after their evening meal). They both became very ill in July with the same symptoms, such as; lethargy, vomiting, diarrea, and anorexia (total lack of appetite except for the treats, which they loved and looked forward to). The test started showing signs of kidney failure which made no sense to the vets because Misty and Lacie are not related, and Kidney failure is rare with puppies. Both puppies received extensive care in the hospital along with test after test trying to figure out what was wrong with them. Vet bills started mounting up to over $9,000. Every meal had to be force fed except their nightly jerky treat which they got very excited about.
Mid September we found out about the AVMA warning, and immediatelty stopped giving them these treats, Our little seven month old Misty rallied and got better, but our sweet little Lacie never got better and this weekend our precious little 11 month old Lacie got much worse, and had to be put down at 5:30 last night."

It continues:

"I wish someone had warned us about this product. I thought this product was American made. Only after I saw the warning, did I see in small print on the bottom of the package, made in China."

Consider this post to be a gentle warning to be careful what you feed your "kids"."
