Now in UK & Ireland: jerky treats can kill dogs

A warning has just been released in the UK about jerky treats (strips of dried meat) imported from China being linked to severe renal failure in dogs.

The Animal Health Trust, a highly respected veterinary institution, has issued a warning that some imported “jerky treats” may be highly toxic to dogs. A public warning from the AHT does not happen often, and deserves to be taken very seriously.

There have been a number of pet food scares in North America and Australia in the past decade, but to date, Ireland and the UK has managed to stay in the clear.
