Greenies Allegedly Cause Dogs Death

A lawsuit was filed recently in New York State by the owners of a dog that died from eating a greenie. Burt did not die because he bit off a big piece in his throat and choked, but because the treats are NOT 100% digestible as they are advertised to be. They can swell in the intestine and cause a blockage like the one that resulted in Burt's death. Supervising a dog while they eat any greenie type treats is not an assurance of safety. :-(

Here is a website that has been set up regarding the lawsuit (there is a PDF of the lawsuit that explains in detail the whole scenario of his death, etc.). It's called Burt's Cause as the owners say that they will not let Burt have died in vain. 

Editors Note, this is an alleged incident, reported by AIP as news. Please check the website for verification and outcome of lawsuit.
