What are your pets experiences with Fruitables Dog Treats? I recently bought Pumpkin with Apple Flavor and my puppies love them as treats. And they have an overwhelming smell to them which they love as well. I looked online for reviews, but there weren’t too many. To the plus side, they are USA made so that’s awesome and they totally smell homemade. Any thoughts? Positive or Negative?theBCnutMember
For people feeding grinds, they are a convinient way to get some fruit and veg in the diet. They have some good ingredients in them. I like the idea, but mostly I’m too cheap.
PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE FRUITABLES DOG TREATS!!!! I purchased these treats from Whole Foods, I gave my 3yr pitbull/Lab 3 or 4 of these treats, she is like our baby, the sweet Potato & Duck and she got Acute Kidney failure! She started with upset stomach, vomiting, not eating, etc. She is currently in the hospital because they are trying to save her life by flushing her kidneys 24hrs a day. Please DO NOT feed your dog these treats. They’ll get sick.
Did you give some of the treats to the vet to be tested? I sure hope your pup makes it through this! Fingers crossed.
No I didn’t have the Vet test them but after reading an article poisonedpets.com, I know that she got poisoned by these treats because the Vets told me she got poisoned with something and it was right after I gave her the treats and there is a huge article on Sweet potato treats on that website. Thank you for your support and please keep our baby Kaya in your thoughts & prayers for her to pull through this.
I definitely will. It’s so scary! Just wish you could get them tested so they could be put on recall to stop it happening to anyone else.
How is she doing today?
She’s doing better, waiting for the second blood results to come back to see how shes doing, shes on 24hr IV fluids to flush out her kidneys but the Dr. is hopeful. Thank you for your thoughts & prayers and please try to get the words out on the treats, I throw away the bag, I wish I kept them for the Dr to test them but positive it was from the treats.
Glad to hear she is doing better. Were they jerky like treats?
yes that they were, Fuitables Duck & sweet Potato Jerky. Kaya is home & shes going back to the hospital tomorrow for more fluid therapy. Thank god her blood levels are coming down but not exactly back to normal. Thank you for your thoughts and please get the words out so hopefully no other animal will get hurt. All the best!
Good news. I’ve been staying away from jerky treats. Thanks for sharing.a cMember
I thought I read somewhere the Fruitable cookie treats are pretty good in ingredients. Not sure about the jerky.Melina FMember
Please help! My eight-month-old puppy is going through the same thing right now After feeding her Fruitables! How many times had you given your dog treats before they started with symptoms ?Melina FMember
The treats we used were the Fruitables apple and sweet potato, my dog started vomiting and it lasted 24 hours. The vet gave her several injections for antibiotics and fluids. I still have the bag, I want it tested but I don’t know where to send it! I’m filing a complaint with the FDA in the morning.Mocha BMember
I have a hard time believing these dog treats caused either of your dogs to go into kidney failure. There are about 5 whole food ingredients in these treats.
Please be honest with yourself about what really caused your dogs to have these issues. My dog is 12 and has been eating these for quite some time. She is healthy and in good shape.Rob DParticipant
The general comments seem to refer to treats which are not totally organic and are(were) likely to contain additives that would have had at least some effect upon the dog’s health. Without any malice i wonder if some of these treats might also have originated in China which is notorious for providing foods for both animals and humans which can contribute to serious health issues.
As my wife and I are awaiting the arrival of a new Yorkie puppy to our home we are of course doing our best to establish some practical info on a variety off things for the new dog and one of those things on the list is effective and healthy treats to be used as well in training. Our basic research suggests that things such as bacon bits, frozen blueberries and raspberries would be effective and for us, eliminating commercial products would be a positive start.
Any reviews of healthy treats for pups and adult dogs would be greatly appreciated.Donna LParticipant
Funny I found this site. I got a 11lb mix breed male pup. All vaccines and was doing great up until this morning. He had 2 Fruitables Whole Jerky Alaskan Salmon & Pear yesterday. This morning and all day he has not eaten. Not drinking. I’m putting 5 cc of water into him ever 4 hours. He’s not his crazy puppy self. Someone gave me 2 bags for him. I’m so done with it. He had dry skin and came to me with a body score of 3. I got him up to a 4. Terrible set back. Putting him back on the Coconut Oil and Grizzly’s Wild Salmon Oil once I get him squared away. If not better by tomorrow he is vet bound . Right now it’s 8.30pm and vets are closed. Lucky for being a Vet Tech I’m going to keep going with the water tonight. Poor dog just is not himself. Keeping this bag in case I do have to make a vet run it’s going with me. Not a happy camper considering he spent 3 months in quarantining down in Alabama before coming up the coast to Ma. I only had the little tike for 2 weeks and he was fine. He even came with a cleared health read out from the vet down south.Donna LParticipant
Well as of 10 pm tonight my 11 month old pup is admitted to a Emergency Vet Specialist Hospital in Ma. Throwing up and runs and dehydrated. They ran every test they could. He has Irritated Bowel and stomach. he’s just a baby and a very expensive lesson learned so far it’s cost my boyfriend $2K tonight and I’m sure it’s not over. I know these vets don’t want to say it in fear of being involved in a law suit but yhea, we know it’s ( Salmonella Toxins )
