Do you use chicken jerky products to reward your dog in puppies training?
Well maybe you shouldn’t. Certainly do not feed such “treats” as a replacement for your dog’s daily dinner.
I just read this article from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the USA that links chicken jerky products to serious, life threatening illness in dogs.
Outside the USA, we cannot be smug. The University of Sydney is investigating an association between dog illness and the consumption of chicken jerky products manufactured in China.
The illnesses are severe and medium to long term,- some dogs have died.
Here we are, as concerned and caring dog owners, agonising over correct puppies training and treatment and feeding and some of the products we rely on seem to be killing our beloved pets. It stinks.
