Taffy pet chews manufactured by Merrick Pet Care have been recalled due to possible Salmonella bacterial contamination.
Merrick Pet Care of Amarillo, Texas, issued the recall of Jr. Texas Taffy pet treats (UPC 02280827077, all lots up to and including No. 10364) because these pet treats may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria.
The Jr. Texas Taffy pet chews were shipped to pet distributors and pet retailers from coast to coast across the country.
Pet owners who have purchased the tainted Jr. Texas Taffy pet treats can return the unused portions to the place of purchase for a full refund, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Pet owners with questions about the tainted pet treats may contact Merrick directly at 1-800-664-7387.
Salmonella bacteria are highly contagious and are transmissible to other pets and as well as people. Pet Diarrhea with or without blood and vomiting are the cardinal signs. The diarrhea can be quite severe, leading to dehydration which without treatment may be fatal.
Pets sickened and/or suspected of ingesting these treats should be taken to their veterinarian and people experiencing any symptoms should see their physician.
Salmonella Therapy involves medications to clear the diarrhea, fluid replacement to promote normal hydration and nursing care to restore normal health for pets and people. Hospitalization is required in many cases.
Salmonella pet infections in dogs and cats can cause signs which can include lethargy and diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some pets may only have a decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise apparently healthy pets can be asymptomatic carriers and spread Salmonella bacteria to other animals and people.
Pet owners are urged to contact their veterinarian if their dog and/or cat may have consumed or come into contact with the recalled pet chews.
Salmonella is considered to be a Zoonotic Disease which means it may be transmitted from pets to people. Pet owners who may have touched the tainted treats and/or contacted the any surfaces exposed to them are at risk of becoming infected with Salmonella bacteria.
Avoid possible Salmonella contamination by practicing proper hygiene. Washing your hands well and disinfecting pet bowls with bleach is helpful to minimize contamination and spread of this bacteria.
Careful disposal of the pet treats in a covered trash receptacle is also recommended to prevent potential spread of this zoonotic bacteria.
Pet owners and household members especially at risk include the elderly, immune compromised individuals and infants.
Signs of Salmonella infections in people may include: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.
Salmonella bacterial infections can also become more severe and result in arterial infections, heart infections referred to as endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms. People exhibiting these signs after having contact with the recalled pet chews should contact their health care provider ASAP.
Pet owners who have purchased the Jr. Texas Taffy pet chews can return the unused portion to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers can contact Merrick Pet Care at 800-664-7387, Monday-Friday, 8-5 CST.

Sprucing up Fido for the upcoming New Years Holiday makes your dog feel good, helps to keep your dog’s skin and hair coat healthy, eliminates mats and tangles so your dogs hair coat will insulate and protect him or her from the cold weather and gives pet owners a chance to check for canine lumps and bumps.
Canine coat shedding is a natural process, that usually occurs each spring and fall. Indoor lighting and heating, as well as seasonal temperature variations all affect your dog’s shedding.
Although most healthy dogs shed twice a year, some breeds, like the Pekingese, Collie and Great Pyrenees, shed all year-round.
Canine skin disorders, dietary imbalances, and hormonal fluctuations all affect dog hair growth and shedding cycles.
DOG HAIR COAT TYPES
How often your dog needs to be bathed and groomed will vary depending on your dogs breed, his or her hair coat length and your dog’s lifestyle.
Canine breeds that shed year round, like the Pekingese and Collie, need to be brushed regularly and groomed every 4 to 8 weeks to properly maintain their hair coats.
Dog breeds with fancy haircuts, like poodles and cocker spaniels, require hair coat care at four to six week intervals. Poodles shed but their hair does not come out until it is brushed.
Maltese and Yorkshire Terriers need hair coat attention every couple of weeks just to keep their long, silky canine coats tangle-free.
Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds and other dog breeds with relatively short coats need a good bath and brush out at least 4-6 times a year.
Regardless of the breed, the canine bath is the single most important factor in dog grooming.
FACT: The more hair your dog has, the more coat care is needed.
FACT: A leash prevents excess wandering and makes dog grooming safer and easier for you and your dog. Dog leashes allowing 12 to 18 inches of slack lets dogs move around a little but not too much.
Dr. Carol’s TIP: For long-coated dog breeds make a “canine poop shoot” by trimming excess hair from beneath the anal area under your dogs tail. This promotes cleanliness and helps prevent several canine health problems, especially with those involving parasites and flies for dogs living in warm, humid climates.
Flies lay eggs in soiled dog fur which hatch into larvae called maggots. Maggots live on flesh, including your dogs’ and can cause life threatening, systemic canine infections. English Sheepdogs, Collies and Shelties are at high risk.
TIP: Using a table, rather the floor makes dog grooming easier. A rubber mat placed on your grooming table provides your dog with secure footing so he or she doesn’t worry about slipping and/or falling.
Dr.Carol’s Dog Eye Stain Remover Home Remedy:
Mix 2 tablespoons of Boric Acid into 1 cup of luke warm water. Dip a cotton ball into the mixture to moisten it. Use the damp cotton ball to gently wipe your dog’s eye stains.
Dog Owners Home Hair Care Grooming Guide
Use shampoo and conditioners that are specifically designed for dogs. Your veterinarian will recommend pet products that are best suited for your dog’s skin and hair coat.
Proper pet grooming equipment also makes your job easier. A slicker brush, along with a metal comb, a pin brush, and a bristle brush work well for most dog breeds initially.
Before bathing, brush out your dogs hair coat and remove as many mats and tangles as possible. Mats are twice as hard to get out once they get wet.
Lubricate your dog’s eyes with artificial tears, or put a couple drops of Vitamin E oil, or Clear Eyes in each eye. Cotton balls work well to keep water and shampoo out of your dogs ears.
Shampoo twice and rinse well. Leaving the second set of suds on your dog for five to ten minutes lets you get the most residual action from medicated shampoos.
Use canine coat conditioners sparingly then be sure to give your dogs hair coat a final rinse.
Your dog may or may not tolerate being blow
