The FDA released this week a correlation of interest between gastrointestinal distress in dogs and some cats and
jerky treats. 580 deaths and 3,600 dog illnesses are believed to be linked to jerky treats from China since 2007. The
FDA is working to identifyreason for this link, but as yet one has not been identified.

jerky treats or making home made ones is a smart move.
