DO NOT FEED YOUR PET ANYTHING FROM CHINA!
Some of these products are from the USA but ingredients from China or ingredients considered a toxin.
So far, the list of brands with treats made in China or that are being linked to pet illness and deaths are:
Canyon Creek Ranch
Booda Bones – Aspen Pet
American Kennel Club
Ever Pet (Dollar General)
Home Pet 360
Walgreen’s new brand – Simple
No name/generic treats and chews from discount and 'dollar stores'
also check for anything containing PROPYLENE GLYCOL (a derivative of anti freeze) we mention this in our top 10 tips
NOTE: Although not linked to deaths - DOGSWELL and many others source their chicken and other ingredients in China. Including many 'organic' chicken products. Organic in China may mean filthy polluted water and technically that is organic.. you don't know what you are getting. Call and find out what your pet food contains anything from China, including supplements. Remember MADE IN USA does not mean the product was SOURCED in the USA. It can be sourced anywhere and 'MADE" in the USA. You must ask the SOURCE of the product. Vitamin Companies in the USA often 'source' their ingredients from someplace else.
Also read our dangerous toys page. Many toys made in China are TOXIC. My dogs got toxic metal poisoning from a toy that was bought in Walmart. For more on that read our TOY page .
If your pet has eaten tainted treats, symptoms may include:
Increased water consumption
