Possible Unsafe Treat

Possible Unsafe Treat

This was posted on Facebook. Many others have said the same thing has happened to their dogs after eating this treat.

Original Post
My healthy dog ate a duck flavored Lucky Chew Sticks a product from Loving Pets that we received in her Super Chewer Bark Box and now she’s gone! She went from a healthy, happy dog to dead in 24 hours after eating this chew. She did not have anything out of the ordinary and was kenneled during and after consuming it, when the vomiting began. This is so wrong and I am so angry. She didn’t deserve to suffer the way that she did, she had so much more life left to live. PLEASE AVOID THIS BRAND! Avoid duck flavor treats and read the link I posted from the FDA’s website below. (I don’t know if this is considered a jerky treat but it was duck flavor). She was not the only dog who’s gotten sick from these chews! I wish we knew better sooner 💔 She ate this chew at 9pm on Sunday and began throwing up at around 2-3AM Monday morning. She went to the vet on Monday & died Monday night. We have been in contact with Bark Box, they are aware and they have been very sympathetic and helpful through out this process.

Loving Pets Response
We were tagged today in a private page's post making an unfounded accusation against one of our products: Prior to the post that was sent to us today, we have not been made aware of any issues regarding our products. We produce millions of treats for happy healthy pets worldwide every year. We perform extensive tests on all of our products, which are made in the USA under the highest standard of quality. Currently, we are making every effort to reach out to this person in regard to these accusations. There are multiple things that make up each dog’s diet, and unfortunately some Dogs can find their way into items inside or outside the home, that can be hazardous to their health. We are a family-owned business and always pride ourselves on being a stand-up operation, with the ultimate goal of serving pets and pet parents with healthy, safe products. We respectfully ask that you refrain from sharing any mention of this unfounded accusation until we get in contact with this individual and there is any information to support her claims, which we believe is not the case. Thank you to our Loving Pets family!!

The reason I decided to post this on our blog is because
1. It is very sad this happened and people need to know it could happen
2. This person is not the only person who has reported this happening after
their dog ate this treat. Several people have reported this on the Loving Pets Facebook Page
3. The poor response from Loving Pets.

This is very sad. Our hearts go out to those who have had their dog injured.
This post is meant to be a public awareness post only.

Frozen Coconut Oil and Watermelon Treats

Frozen Coconut Oil and Watermelon Treats

I do not know about your dogs, but mine absolutely go nuts over watermelon. We buy around 2 melons a week and it never goes to waste in our house.  While my dogs love it just the way it is, It is always fun to make something different just to add some variety. 

Today I am sharing a recipe from Housefur
This is an easy recipe that only takes a few ingredients. 
Head over to Housefur to get this recipe and more.

Red Spots on Your Dogs

 What Is This?

I recently saw a post on Facebook and thought it was a good one to share on this blog. 

Original Post

As Spring starts, we are getting more and more phone calls about red bites on your dog's stomach. We wanted to give everyone this information, these are a type of fly bite, and dogs generally get them from laying in the grass. They look terrible, but usually do not bother the dogs. They heal quickly on their own and do not require any treatment. These flies are usually around for a few weeks every spring and then go away. We hope this eases any worry that you may have had about your own dog! If you have any concerns please feel free to call the clinic for more information!
