I am not affiliated with EA, but work in a small pet shop. It seems to me there are several separate issues here: the first is what size was the chew? A dog that size should not have been given the 4 inch chew, which he could then swallow whole and choke, which is apparently what happened. The second is the ingredients in the chew (not that this issue is less important!)—I think in fairness this article should have mentioned that Dr. Kallenberger may be a DVM, but he is also a member of the American Leather Chemist’s Association and has written many articles (and even books) on tanning and leather. That leads to the important question as to who is funding his research? We know that plays a part. Before posting an article that you know will lead to backlash, in all fairness other questions must be asked. Earth Animal has a good reputation to date—so before calling them crap and castigating them, lets make sure. And no animal should be left unattended with an edible chew (or really any chew). I am a regular visitor to this site and appreciate all the valuable information.
That was on Friday night. On Saturday we all toured dear old Urbana High School, and at lunchtime it was unanimously decided we should inspect the new Steak 'n Shake up on Route 45. "Your classmates are crazy," Chaz said. That evening, we held our banquet at the Urbana Country Club. The club has an excellent chef, but our meal had been catered, the dinner committee having agreed on Steak 'n Shake. On Sunday morning, as we got into our car at the Lincoln Lodge Motor Inn, Chaz took my hand, looked deeply into my eyes, and with a tone usually reserved for family emergencies, said, "Let's not stop at Kankakee."
