Chew toys may be dangerous – dog in travel – dogfriendly places low blood sugar in newborns

WARNING The truth about the production of common CHEW-TOYS (RAWHIDE) for dogs came to light! MANY of the popular treats available on the market might be TOXIC and are manufactured using horrible methods and substances! Surely, you know what we are talking about: white bones often with a “knot” (see below), smooth plastic-like bones (pressed) or rolled-sticks (e.g. covered with chicken- or duck- meat):

So why the PROBLEM? Many chews and treats available on the market are imported from factories in CHINA. And there… well, the only “standard” is much, fast and cheap… In such places the quality toxicity control is a sham. So, such ‘treats’ have NOTHING to do with FOOD! It’s as if we gave our dog a ‘flavoured’ shoe-sole or a piece of tyre to eat…

Recently, the ALERT was started by Canadian and American dog-nutricians, when the production process of “dog-chews” was exposed.

Basing on a video published by online dog-lover Mr Rodney Habib and dieteticians, we’ll summarize what the production looks like:

ETHICS of Chinese GOODS: According to ongoing investigation of Humane Society International, in Chinese ‘dog-chews’ there have been dogs skins (!) found (info source: here). The report exposes, that there were dog-skins form brutally murdered dogs (dog-farms and Yulin dog-meat festival) also from other Asian countries and were mixed with other animal skins.

(What’s more, as Ken Midkiff writes in his book The Meat You Eat, the origin of all the animal skins is UNETHICAL. They are animals from so called CAFO breeding (a niece name: Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation), which is simply ‘concentration camps’ (the animals spend all their miserable life cramped in tight, metal crates in dark halls, never seeing the sunlight – they are fed on hormone and steroid food and then taken to slaughterhouses…).

Surely, not all dog-chews on the market are harmful. The producers from EU, are obliged to stick to certain norms and their products are manufactured in accordance with ethics and are under strict-control, so the presence of toxic substances should be eliminated.

Why the “country of origin” of a product is so important not the producer? Because even respected companies (e.g. Purina) import goods from China and some compounds are not checked. In 2006 and later in 2013 it turned out they were HARMFUL to dogs (2006r. poisoned dog-food, 2013r. poisoned dog-treats).

British organisation for animal health “Animal Health Trust” (AHT) ISSUED an APEAL to pet owners, TO BUY exclusively pet food manufactured in UE, as the Chinese products available on the market are dangerous (but approved…) (the appeal HERE)

In blood and urine tests a rare kidney disease was diagnosed , glucose level in urine was too high, while normal glucose level was in blood (any other causes of elevated glucose level in urine, like diabetis, kidney infection or leptospirosis, were excluded).

There were dogs DEATH reports, which are linked to eating products made in China. The case is being investigated ( HERE you will find the statement by Agency for Food Control). The first signals on toxic Chinese treats were reported in Australia and USA, later in UK and Europe.

Musimy mieć świadomość, że producent NIE MA OBOWIĄZKU wymienić na opakowaniu kraju pochodzenia każdego ze składników, który zawiera produkt, więc wystarczy, że produkt jest “złożony” z różnych elementów w Europie i już jest “Made in EU” (np. gryzak z Chin owija się kawałkiem suszonego kurczaka z UE i już jest ok)…

1. często na opakowaniu podany jest dystrybutor, a nie producent (!) A nie o to nam chodzi: dystrybutor może być polski, czeski, itp, ale dystrybuowany towar najczęściej pochodzi z Chin! Sprawdziliśmy to pisząc do wielu sprzedawców i często otrzymywaliśmy takie odpowiedzi:
