    Default Heads up on Mammoth tire bite dog toy

    Sunday I was at Walmart and picked up a dog toy for the pups, Mammoth Tire Biter which is a small car tire with a rope attached to it. Got home around 3:00 PM and threw it in to the pups corral and they went for it big time playing tug o war and as Bella is she played with it the most.
    By about 5:30pm they had torn the tire some so in the garbage it went. A few minutes later Bella started puking her lunch up and then clear liquid and she was looking and feeling like .
    At 6:00pm I made there dinner but Bella would not eat and kept puking. Dozer ate his food with no problems untill 8:pm rolled around and he started puking as well and did not stop till around 9:30-10:00pm. I did mix some pepto-bismol with some ice cream and Dozer would not eat it but Bella did and she started to look a little better by the time I put her to bed.

    I got up twice in the middle of the night to check on both pups, Bella seem to be okay but Dozer was not him self, talk about being scared to death over this whole thing!!!!
    The next day they were both back to there normal selfs and both ate there breakfast.

    Of course the damn toy is made in China! I went and got the toy out of the garbage and smelled it and it reeked real bad, so and I'm thinking some thing on the surface of the toy got them sick.
    I was at pet smart yesterday and saw the same toy being sold by a different company.

    @Bella and Dozers Dad Happy that the kids are okay. Mine have an old tire that came off a wheelbarrow. They used to play with it, when they were pups. I try not to buy anything that says China on it-and that ain't easy!! It wouldn't surprise me if China has a plot..............

    Thank you for the warning. I've seen that same tire toy at a pet store I love going to and have been tempted to buy it, but I won't now!

    It is hard finding dog toys (or much of anything lately), that are made in USA. But here are some brands that still do produce their dog toys here:

    Nylabone (most of their toys are produced in USA)
    Kong (some of their squeaker toys and Wubba's are produced in China but the standard rubber ones are from USA)
    West Paw Design
    Planet Dog
    Go Dog

    Of course, just 'cuz toys are made in USA doesn't mean they're "safe" either...as we all already know, we gotta watch our bullies when they're playing with any toy. But at least with the USA brands, they are free of any toxic dyes or chemicals (at least I hope and think this is the case).

    I am so glad that your Babies are ok. Thank You for the Info. I will always look at where it is made. Coming from China is no good to buy their stuff.

    So glad they are ok. you do have to be so careful !!!!
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source

    I have also looked at these toys. I don't buy anything for Henry that's not made in USA. It's hard! Hubby is a huge believer in purchasing as much USA products as possible. When we first got Henry I got a huge basket full of toys and a pet store and he made me put them all back and search the labels for US made. He says that if they're willing to poison our children they won't give a crap about our pets. JW Pet also has many made in USA toys. They are softer rubber and Henry loves them, especially the squeaky teddy. I bought 2! Good luck finding good toys.
