Thousands of pets sick, hundreds dying from jerky treats
Veterinarians from BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Minneapolis are urging caution after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a request for members of the general public and their veterinarians to send any information they have if their pet has become ill after eating jerky treats.
