It’s official! After announcing last year that the pet superstore would no longer sell China-made dog and cat treats amid growing concerns about their safety, Petco has officially withdrawn the last of any treats, chews, and rawhides made in China from it’s 1,300 retail stores and online.
Rival retailer, PetSmart, promises to do the same by March.
The ban on Chinese imported treats is a welcomed one, especially to the thousands of pet parents whose dogs have become ill, even died, after eating the suspect treats. And, sets an important precedent for pet product retailers moving forward.
