FDA Warns: Don't Give Your Dog a Bone Treat

The FDA is warning dog owners to think twice before giving their pups bone treats. The FDA has received nearly 70 reports of pet illness related to bone treats, including vomiting and blockage in the digestive tract, with 15 of the cases resulting in death.

The FDA described the bone treats as “Ham Bones,” “Pork Femur Bones,” “Rib Bones,” and “Smokey Knuckle Bones.” The bones are dried through a smoking process or by baking.

An FDA vet warns you should always supervise your dog when it’s working on a chew toy or treat and call a vet right away if you notice your dog isn’t acting right.
