Caution! These chews are known to cause kidney problems in some dogs--including mine.
on November 17, 2015
My dog really like these chews, but after giving them to him for for about a week, I noticed that he was drinking an ungodly amount of water--as in, ALL. THE. TIME. Naturally, this meant that he had to pee all the time. Suddenly, he was starting to have accidents in the house--something he'd never done before unless I neglected to take him out in a timely manner. I did a little internet research and found that this brand of dog chews has been known to cause kidney problems in some dogs, a symptom of which is a sudden, marked increase in daily water intake, increase in frequency of urination, and accidents. I immediately stopped giving them to him, and within a few days he was back to normal. A vet checkup confirmed that he's perfectly fine, but the vet did caution against using this product again. Based on the Amazon reviews, it appears as if most dogs have no problem with these chews. Like people, every dog is different. I wouldn't go so far as to recommend that people NOT buy them, but I wanted to write this review so that others might learn of the potential risk.
