    Sounds pretty fishy to me. Yuck.

    I'm so glad I'm done with kibble...no guessing!

    Default Danger Dog Treats!

So I've stopped buying doggie treats there.

    Same thing with Publix. They carry 2 brands "bull wrinkles": their own "private label" is made in China, while the other (I think it's "Uncle Sam's) is made in the US. Guess which one I choose?

    Meanwhile, Publix head office is about 1/2 hour from here in Lakeland, FL. I think I just might "drop them a line" about their inappropriate choices.



    I bought a bag of Bacon Dog treats from Target last week.
    When I opened them they smelled really bad.
    I read the ingredients and they contained "ethelyne glycol" which is Anti Freeze.
    I have contacted Target and asked them for a response, but no answer so far.

    For those who dont know, Ethelyne Glycol is HIGHLY poisonous to animals as well as humans.

    NEVER give these things to your dog.

    are you sure it wasnt propylene glycol? which is a humectant food additive, and also found in human food. Ethylene is straight up antifreeze, I doubt they would use it in dog treats.

    Now that you mention it, it may very well have been.
    Unfortunately, I threw out the bag, but the next time I am in Target, I will check.

    I have no proof, just a concern that maybe my dog's recent illness was cause by or aggravated by Boots and Barkley Multi Flavored treats. Within a few days of giving her said treats, she had 7 seizures in a 24 hr. period. I'm afraid she hasn't fully recovered and not likely to. We threw them away.
