Tainted Doggie Treats

While it is true that doggie treats are now more readily available in grocery stores and pet specialty venues, this ready availability status of commercial comes with a downside – not all of them are actually safe for dogs.

Based on an entry featured by The Lazy Pit Bull, there have been quite a number of complaints related to commercially available doggie treats being sold in the US, with more than 1,800 complaints stated to have been received by the US FDA in 2007.

The entry also talks about how eight states have filed class-action lawsuits against pet products manufacturer Nestle Purina, makers of the Waggin’ Train doggie treat.

Melamine-tainted products are noted to be the cause for different doggie illnesses and sicknesses, with some even succumbing to the “worst case scenario”, death.

Considering that the common denominator between the dog’s states are defined by having consumed specific doggie treats, the evidence indicates that steering clear from certain doggie treat brands is a good move for pit bull owners.

While it is difficult to exactly pinpoint safe doggie treats from unsafe items, pit bull owners are advised not to be careless in giving their pits just about whatever doggie treat they find for sale.

When weighing the overall safe factor of a particular item, dog owners should ideally consult with their dog’s vets, particularly taking note of what they have to say about a product, given that veterinarians are in the know with just about which brands and products prove to be potential risks for dogs.

The move may seem a bit too much, but it certainly is a huge “pinch of prevention” that doesn’t put the health and well being of a pit bull at risk.
