  • FDA warns against giving dogs

The Food and Drug Administration is warning against giving dogs "bone treats" after dozens of reports of illnesses and at least 15 deaths.

"Giving your dog a bone treat might lead to an unexpected trip to your veternarian, a possible emergency surgery, or even death for your pet", Carmela Stamper, a veternarian with the FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine, said in a statement.

About 15 of those dogs reportedly died following dog bone consumption, according to the FDA.

According to the FDA, the "bone treats" are different from uncooked butcher-type bones. Illnesses reported to FDA by owners and veterinarians in dogs that have eaten bone treats have included: - Gastrointestinal obstruction (blockage in the digestive tract) - Choking - Cuts and wounds in the mouth or on the tonsils - Vomiting - Diarrhea *Bleeding from the rectum, and/or *Death.

These treats may be dried through smoking or baking and may contain preservatives, seasonings and other flavorings.

However, it isn't just the commercialized bone treats that cause problems, the FDA warns. Consumers should also supervise their dog while they're using any chew toy or treat, Stamper said.

Pet owners should also not feed their pets real bones (such as leftover bones from their chicken or turkey), as these can also cause injury. So be careful to keep platters out of reach when you're cooking or the family is eating.

Properly dispose of bones in your trashcan, so your dogs can't get into it.

Consult with your veterinarian about toys or treats that are best suited for your dog. Certain materials are not safe for your dog to chew on.
