    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Chicken Jerky Advisory
    avatar
    AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION
    Bernadine Cruz, DVM posted:
    Dogs love them...those dried chicken treats that seem to be the newest rage at pet stores. Owners love them because they seem to be natural...only dried chicken. The FDA has issued an advisory that health issues have been associated with these treats. There have also been some deaths attributed to the consumption of these snacks. A recall has not been called as of this time. If you feel you just have to give the jerky, tenders or strip treats, only give a small amount and monitor your pet for signs of stomach upset.

    You can learn more by going to the AVMA's (American Veterinary Medical Association) website.
