    New Treats from China poisoning pets, cause acute kidney failure. Be informed Be aware!!!

    Vets warn: New treats from China poisoning pets, cause acute kidney failure, from

    The not-so-sweet sweet potatoes

    Despite repeated warnings issued by the FDA about risks associated with chicken and duck jerky pet treats, veterinarians are reporting new cases of illness in dogs following the ingestion of two new types of treats. These treats have never been associated with kidney disease in dogs – until now. What are the treats? This time, dogs are being affected by a new, and unexpected, class of pet treat: Sweet potato and yam dog treats.

    Aside from the spooky coincidence that dogs consuming sweet potato and yam treats are showing similar signs of an exceedingly rare type of kidney disorder (Fanconi’s syndrome) as dogs that are fed poultry jerky treats – there is another, more sinister, association. All the treats, regardless of type, are imported from China.
    Several sweet potato and yam pet treat brands, cited by veterinarian Dr. Jean Hofve, are suspected of causing new cases of unexplained acute kidney failure include:
    • Canyon Creek Ranch Chicken Yam Good Dog Treats by Nestle-Purina
    • Beefeaters Sweet Potato Treats
    • Drs. Foster and Smith
    • Dogswell Veggie Life Vitality
