Dog Food/Treats | Rover Achiever – Dog Walking and Dog Training in Toronto

We are asking all dog owners to avoid feeding their dog chicken jerky treats after several cases have recently been reported where dogs are developing serious side effects after consuming these treats.

The products in question appear to be manufactured in Canada, but imported from China or Thailand. Multiple brand names have been indicated.

Symptoms such as, but not limited to: decreased appetite, decreased activity, vomiting, and increased water consumption and/or increased urination have been observed.  Blood and urine tests may show kidney impairment.

The Ontario Veterinary Medical Association has received multiple reports at present of otherwise healthy dogs who are developing kidney disease after the consumption of chicken jerky treats.  One severe case has resulted in the dog being euthanized. The autopsy of the euthanized dog revealed a toxic substance in the dog.

To ensure your dog’s health is protected, please refrain from feeding any sort of chicken jerky treat, especially those imported from China or Thailand, until more information can be found as to whether they are responsible for these potentially life threatening reactions.
