New news story about these tainted death traps.
Pet owners wage campaign against Chinese pet treats | www.wsbtv.com

I found someone in Washington who is now doing testing on their own dime who is requesting samples and health records from those affected by these treats. Will keep you updated on what they find if anything!

Zoey will never be gotten!

I just went to a vet meeting about Lyme, lepto, and anaplasma... The speaker did make mention of the treats from China causing kidney issues....

My vets office just did a speech locally about the dangers of these China Made
Jerky Treats. The local paper did not even write about it . But at least they are making an effort to get the word out!

Saving 1 dog at a time!

I just bought these treats for my dogs as well...and then came upon this thread. I found this information on the Blue website:

The Facts About Blue Buffalo Chicken Jerky Treats

BLUE Jolly Joints Jerky Treats for dogs are all natural and healthy

Seems safe? I'm thinking its not even worth the risk and I should just throw them away anyways..

I had no idea any of this was happening until I saw this thread. I've been giving my Lhasa Apso Waggin Train jerky treats. Maybe 4 strips a week for a month or so. She hasn't shown any symptoms of illness. No diarrhea, no vomiting, no personality change. I immediately sent my boyfriend a text telling him not to feed them to the dogs and I will be throwing them out as soon as I get home, but should I be worried about my girl?

Anything made in China do not buy or give your pets.

Good to know my Zoey my have just saved another dog's life! As well as prevented a lot of heartache to you.

I would have blood work done and of she starts to act off repeat the blood work.

I would also not get rid of the treats because if she does get sick you will have no evidence of what caused it! I would put the treats in a safe place in Ziploc bags with a giant note that says "DON'T Feed!" taped to them.
