Poisoned Meat Causing Dog Kidney Damage

G'day Dog Lovers,

Check out the link to an Australian news story below...

Hundreds of small dogs have suffered serious kidney damage, believed to have been caused by pet food meat from China. "We have only become aware of this in the last three or four weeks, and we need to make people aware there are some clear indications there is a problem out there," AVA national president Mark Lawrie told The Advertiser yesterday.

Vets and small dog owners have been told to look out for warning signs such as increased thirst and urination, reduced appetite, lethargy, weakness and vomiting.

Do you know of anyone who has been affected by this?

Does anyone know what the product is. I've bought my dogs biscuit treats wrapped in bacon, they have had some already and seem to love them but they are made in China. My friend told me about this poisoning this morning and told me to throw the biscuits out.

Please dont think it only effects small dogs. My 40 kilo Dobermann is having serious kidney problems due to this product.
