These store-bought bone treats could kill your dog, FDA warns

Not a recall, but a new warning. No matter what a company says, if a bone is safe sitting outside of a refrigerator or freezer, it's NOT raw, and it's NOT safe! Smoking is the same as cooking. It's drying out the product, and whether it's done with smoke, low-heat air, baking, or whatever, IT'S THE SAME AS COOKED!!!

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning dog owners about store-bought "bone treats," saying they have led to multiple reports of pet illnesses and even death.

In a consumer update, the FDA said they have received nearly 70 reports of pet illnesses related to "bone treats." The illnesses reported by owners and veterinarians include:

Gastrointestinal obstruction (blockage in the digestive tract)
Choking
Cuts and wounds in the mouth or on the tonsils
Vomiting
Diarrhea
Bleeding from the rectum
Death. Approximately fifteen dogs reportedly died after eating a bone treat.

"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog." Edward Hoagland
"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."
