Remember Your Beloved Pet
Chicken Jerky Advisory
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.
