"...Decadent Doggie! made in Indiana by dog owners who were appalled by the illness caused by the jerky treats made in China. These treats can be purchased online and the company has an extensive FAQ section detailing where they get the meat for their jerky treats, how they are prepared and why they are 100% safe."

Decadent Doggie believes in making only the best jerky for your dog. Handmade in Indiana from the highest quality restaurant grade meats we 100% guarantee our products.
We know from experience the effects dangerous jerky can have on your pet when our own Black & Tan Pomeranian named Dolce had become very ill. We trusted what we read on the bag (ALL NATURAL), and thought that meant they were healthy and safe. This label in fact wasn't true and Dolce then had high spikes in her liver enzymes, which normally indicates a liver shunt, and our veterinarian said that she needed surgery immediately.
Because of this we vowed that making our own natural jerky was the only way to be sure our dogs were safe and we stand behind our product 100%. If for any reason you're not satisfied with our product we offer full refunds.
ABC News reports that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning about chicken jerky for dogs, saying some products imported from China may be associated with 70 reports of dogs who became ill or died. That number is up from 54 reports last year, the agency indicated.
