Please check your dog treats carefully. If they come from China, it might be best to get rid of them.

The FDA reached out to veterinarians and pet owners recently for help in figuring out why nearly 600 dogs have died and another 3,600 have gotten sick since 2007 after eating jerky treats.  Most of the treats are from China, but the agency hasn't been able to zero in on exactly what's so harmful to the animals.

Vets and owners are asked to contact the FDA if your pet gets sick, and vets in particular are being asked to send along blood and urine samples and be more vigilant about reporting cases.
