Breaking news! FDA releases progress report on jerky treats that have been harming cats and dogs. See this link for specific information for pet owners and specific information for vets (Dear Dr. Letter). While the cause of harm has not yet been identified, there has been a significant decrease in the number of cases since much of the product was removed from the market. What to watch for: “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.”
