Do not, I repeat, DO NOT give your pets food that is Made in China. It might be hard to find pet food Made in America, but trust me-- the search is worth it. The lazy way out, simply buying the food that is readily available could result in the death of your four-legged best friend.
Pet owners have been raising concerns over certain products across the Nation, but it takes a long time before these cases collectively become recognized and validated.
If your dog is sick, either throwing up or having the runs, and you have been feeding any of these foods, it's important to get to the vet right away. Other signs that your dog could be sick include, a change in appetite or overall behavior.
Be observant, the foods our dogs are eating are not safe if they are made in China. There are different regulations there, as I said in another post-- China products MUST be tested on animals in order to be sold. The culture towards animals is very different in China than America, this must be thought about before purchasing the cheaper, but potentially fatal, treats they make. To many of us, our animals are as important as human children, this is not a common feeling worldwide. You must protect your own dog; we can no longer trust corporations to do it for us.
