Comments: Walmart Is Killing Pets

How much longer is this going to go on before the media will finally start making a fuss about it? That's the only way the government will listen, IMO.

Yesterday I went into Petsmart and EVERY treat and chewy I picked up was made in China. I left them there.

Right now I'm using Innova's EVO for training; no grain and they're small. ;)

For 17 years my dog was healthy and happy. She was never sick outside of the final few months of her life when she just was winding down. *sigh*

But - I never bought her anything to eat or chew that was not made in the USA. Yes, I read my labels! Unlike other countries we have higher standards for food and all the other things dogs might chew.

Rawhide made outside the US has a good possibility of being cured in an arsenic substance. Many dogs tolerate it well, others get very sick... that sort of thing happens with all dog chewies.

And yes, I paid more - I believe I saved hundreds - if not thousands in vet bills! I never bought anything for them from Walmart - but if Walmart had carried made in the USA chewies - I would have been okay with it. Just nothing from other countries.
