Giving dogs poultry and other raw bones can be dangerous. But a Food and Drug Administration report suggests the problem is broader. The report explains that the FDA has 68 recent reports of pets becoming sick due to eating processed bone treats.

The bones in question are baked, seasoned and sold across the country. You’ve probably seen them available at many pet supply and grocery stores. When a pet becomes sick from these bones, it’s more than a simple tummy ache. In many cases, it has resulted in emergency trips to the vet.

Symptoms Include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Mouth cuts
  • Internal bleeding and blockages

In 15 cases, the illness was so severe that the dogs actually died.

There are a lot of factors that should go into choosing treats for any pet. Pet safety should be the top priority when choosing treats. Check with the pet’s veterinarian to ensure you get the right treat for each pet.

Comparing Employee Dishonesty Coverage & Bonding

PCI’s employee dishonesty coverage is similar to a bond, but there may be some key differences to consider.

Employee dishonesty coverage:

  • Can be purchased in the same transaction
  • Doesn’t run credit checks
  • Provides $10,000 per occurrence and $25,000 aggregate coverage

Bonds may differ from our dishonesty coverage by:

  • Checking your credit during the application process
  • Having a “Conviction Claus;” Often bonds won’t pay on claims unless there is a conviction
  • Many require you to reimbursement the bonding company after a claim is paid
