If your pet has eaten tainted treats, symptoms may include:
* Decreased appetite
* Decreased activity
* Increased water consumption
* Increased urination
If your pet is sick and you have been feeding it these treats please report it to the FDA: https://www.safetyreporting.hhs.gov/fpsr/WorkflowTimeout.aspx?metinstance=4815A34AF656FF5D624E9F6F9F53E6E3163BDDB1.
For now, pet owners who find the current state of this situation unacceptable are urged by animal advocacy groups to take the following actions.
* Download the FDA warning here http://www.yelodoggie.com/FDA_nov11_statement.pdf, and print some copies.
* If you find the products in your store, remove them from the shelf, give them to store managers with a copy of the FDA warning, and ask that the store return the treats to the manufacturer.
