Jerky Treats Harming Pets
Thousands of pets are getting sick from what appears to be because of treats their owners are giving them.
Since 2007, more than 3,600 dogs and 10 cats became sick after eating jerky treats.
And 580 of them have died.
The common link seems to be the treats were made in China.
They are sold under a variety of brand names.
After 1,200 tests done by the food and drug administration, veterinarians still can't determine exactly why the pets are getting sick.
As a result, dogs and cats can suffer from a decreased appetite, decreased activity, vomiting and diarrhea.
