In June, the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association notified the American Veterinary Medical Association that CVMA had received reports of Fanconi syndrom-like symptoms in dogs, similar to those cases reported in 2007 by AVMA that were found to be associated with chicken jerky treats made in China.
AVMA issued an alert to its members, recommending vigilance for any suspected cases in the US, as well as to state veterinary medical associations and allied organizations. In the alert, AVMA said it has not received any recent reports from US veterinarians about potential toxicities from chicken jerky treats and that AVMA has not yet determined the extent of the problem.
