FDA update: Jerky treats sickened 6,200 dogs, killed 1,140The illness reports also involved 26 cats and three people.AddThis Sharing Buttons
More than 1,140 dogs have died after eating jerky pet treats, out of 6,200 cases of jerky-related canine illness reported to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from 2007 to December 31, 2015. FDA recently released those figures in an update on its continuing investigation into animal illnesses and deaths related to jerky-style treats.
In that same time span, FDA received approximately 5,200 complaints of illness associated with consumption of chicken, duck or sweet potato jerky treats. The illness reports also involved 26 cats and three people. Most cases involved products imported from China, but some resulted from treats labeled as US-made.
Many affected animals showed symptoms of a rare kidney disease, Fanconi-like syndrome (FLS), which is normally genetic. Reports of jerky-related FLS cases have declined in recent years. Between May 2014 and September 2014, FDA received 270 case reports. However, only 200 reports were filed since the agency’s last update, which covered September 2014 through the end of 2015.
During the investigation, FDA detected antimicrobial and antiviral residues in an imported duck jerky product and added duck jerky products to the testing system in 2015. As a result of this testing, FDA revised its existing Import Alert in October 2015 to include certain poultry jerky pet treats.
However, the exact cause for these cases of FLS has not been identified. FDA continues to investigate the cause of these illnesses along with the Veterinary Laboratory Investigation and Response Network, an FDA-affiliated group of animal health laboratories. Lab analysis looks for pathogenic bacteria, toxic metals, radioactivity, pesticides and many other potentially harmful materials.
The agency continues to caution pet owners that jerky pet treats are not required for a balanced diet. FDA encourages pet ownders to consult with their veterinarians if they notice symptoms in their pets, including:

Holistic Medicine uses modalities that will help the body heal itself. Every creature has an innate immune system to protect themselves and heal from invaders. Acupuncture, Herbs, Chiropractic, Homeopathy, Flower Essences, Aromatherapy, Reiki, are examples of alternative/complementary physical and energetic medicine.
When practicing Holistic Medicine on animals, the healer knows that the outcomes and results are true.....there is NO placebo in the animal kingdom. Our patients cannot be deceived!
These modalities have thousands of years of history and have survived and been passed down through generations because they have been effective at healing people or at least improving their quality of life. Also, most of these modalities can be used to prevent illnesses or even diagnose diseases and most can be prescribed along with allopathic agents or physical intervention. There can be a marriage between Eastern and Western medical cultures.
Allopathic medicine is an expression commonly used by homeopaths or holistic practitioners and proponents of other forms of alternative medicine to refer to mainstream medical use of pharmacologically active agents or physical interventions to treat or suppress symptoms or pathophysiologic processes of diseases or conditions.
