Charlie was taken off of life support this morning after spending two nights in the Kihei Veterinary Clinic. He was only 5 years old. Dr. Kehler of the Kihei Veterinary Clinic is very concerned about this case and will be performing an autopsy.
Here’s a link to an article about the jerky treats: http://wapo.st/1hDrscF The article claims that over 600 dogs were killed by this dog treat from china.
A friend of Jack/Charlie’s family sent this to us via email:
“We are all deeply shocked & still can’t believe this happened so quick. Charlie’s owners Jack & Pam have no child. Charlie was their lil’ baby. Charlie was perfectly happy, smart, full of life… the cutest Chihuahua till having few bites of dog treats. Please help us, they are still selling the products that killed Charlie!”
While we can’t force Walmart to take these jerky treats off their shelves, we CAN warn you about them so this doesn’t happen to your pet/family member.
