Salmonella Dog Treat Alert!

A warning just posted on the Dog Food Advisor's Website is a recall for numerous brands of dog treats due to salmonella. Yeesh!

Kasel Industries is recalling the following brands…
Boots & Barkley
Bixbi
Nature’s Deli
Colorado Naturals
Petco
Best Bully SticksMore information with exact lot numbers is on the Dog Food Advisor's website. 

I don't buy anything from China for my dogs because of the issues with contaminated food. In some stores its hard to find any chewy thing for treat without that "Made in China" note. Now we have salmonella.

From what I've read salmonella will make your dog pretty sick with vomiting, diarrhea and a whole list of other nasty stuff. If you think your dog has eaten something off the list call your vet. Even if your dog isn't exhibiting symptoms, better safe than sorry.

I have a friend who makes her own dog treats. Although I'm really not a cook, that idea is getting more appealing.
