Health Tip: Give Your Dog Safe Treats

(HealthDay News) -- Fido can become quite sick from unsafe treats, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warns.

Your dog may have a bone to pick with you if a bad treat leads to stomach or bowel obstruction, choking, mouth wounds, vomiting, diarrhea or internal bleeding, the FDA says. In some cases, a bad treat can lead to death.

The FDA suggests how to keep your dog safe:

  • Some bones from the kitchen table, chicken bones in particular, are relatively soft and can break with sharp edges. So keep platters out of your pet's reach when you're cooking or the family is eating.
  • Be careful about what you throw away. Dogs are notorious for digging into trash.
  • Ask your veterinarian about treats that are safe and appropriate for your dog.
