Striker recently barked in to the Dogster Dog Blog Bark Out to warn us about a new toy a friend got for Christmas. Striker doesn’t know the name or brand of the toy but if you know more about this, please bark in!

Our breeder recently told us about one of their pups who received a new Christmas toy from their owners. It looks like a real tire, sorry that I don’t know the brand. Anyway, this beautiful boy loved it and chomped away. He began having seizures which, of course, were treated at the vet. Meanwhile the family had rotated the toy out of the mix. three weeks later it was reintroduced and THE SEIZURES STARTED AGAIN. The family feels that there was something toxic about that toy. So just beware and buy long standing, name brand toys for your pets.
