“Real Ham Bone For Dogs” Under Investigation
The Real Ham Bone for Dogs product sold under the Dynamic Pet Products label has been accused of causing serious illness or death in dogs.
The Food and Drug Administration is is investigating complaints about the product. If the claims are founded then they will be looking to take action and notify the public.
The company itself has expressed concern and grief that the product may be responsible for such reactions with pets. They say quality and safety are among their main priorities and they have made the following statement:
That is why every package contains a label that provides detailed instructions to owners on how they can help their pets best enjoy our products. We strongly encourage owners to supervise their pets with any treats or snacks.
The treat is a smoked pig femur and is packaged as a dog treat or chew bone.
According to Better Business Bureau reports from St. Louis the main area of concern is the bones splintering, causing ulcerations or obstructions in the dogs’ intestines. Reported symptoms include dogs becoming lethargic or vomiting.
Unfortunately, the warnings are too late for at least one dog lover who discovered his dog too late. The dog was found dead and bleeding from the mouth.
