Made my dog sick
I gave my dog one of these while supervised and while he did enjoy the “treat” about 4 hours later he had bad diarrhea with blood in it. This lasted about 24 hours. Won’t buy again.
My dogs are both 10yrs old and have eaten Dentastix without any problem for years.
Over the last couple of months they have both suffered from diarrhoea, the same colour as the Dentastix and vomiting.
I sent an email to the company today with the batch numbers to alert them of the problem and I encourage everyone else to do the same. This isn’t right and they need to know what their product is doing to our precious pets.
I notice the product is made in Hungary but the automated email reply I received was from South Africa???

Should be a class action lawsuit against this company!!
My dogs have become SO ILL from these horrible products! I have kept their vomit (that has blood in it!) and will be bringing it to my vet to have it lab tested. I would encourage owners with sick pets from this poison, to do the same. Absolutely inexcusable! Why would anyone ever put a product like this to market?? There are enough people with sick pets (just look at all the reviews on here alone!) that a class action lawsuit should be brought forth. I'm just beside myself. There is SO MUCH vomit from my dogs that I'm fearful for the coming days. Never have I ever seen anything like this. Shame on you Pedigree!! AVOID THIS PRODUCT AND ANY OF THEIR PRODUCTS AT ALL COSTS!

My dog developed yellow diarrhoea after I bought these denta stix. I stopped gixing him pedigree denta stix, the diarrhoea stopped. He likes to eat them but I do not like scooping foul smelling yellow sludge up in a poo bag.

Makes my dog throw up!
If I skip a day, my dog is fine. When I give him one a day, he throws up multiple times during the day. I will never buy them again

Very bad for your dog with disguised harmful ingredients.
My 7mth SBT has been itchy for the last couple of month. Twitching ears which went red, biting paws, chasing his back end and rubbed his eyebrows all swolled and bald. When trying to pin it to a food allergy and not an external allergy we thought back to when his change happened and we rememered the new grain free food we tried and a new shampoo we'd bought. We cut these out and there was no change. About a week ago he was showing signs of improvement the redness had gone and his itching had stopped. Clearing out his treat cupboard i found a d...entstix that had been forgotten about so gave him it. Within an hour he was biting his paws, his eyes swelled up and gone red and he clawed the back of his ear and face red raw. It then dawned on us that we'd bought a box of these at the same time as the food and shampoo. Having googled all the disguised ingredients in this product it may aswell be poison. Take iron oxide which is a know irritant to eyes and skin is disguised as a "mineral supplement". Or the disguised ingredient, a detergent which makes them vomit. I'm pleased my dog is sensitive and found out about the contents of this disgusting and harmful treat before it does long term damage. Do yourself and especially your pet a favour and run a mile.

My dog is sick
My dog started vomiting and now has loose bloody stool, the only change has been giving her these Dentastixs, which I will now stop. I hope these Dentastixs didn't hurt my dog but seems to be the cause.

Made my dog sick
I have given these to my pups in the past but now their stomachs are upset bad with bloody diarrhea and the smell of the product is bad. Bought at Costco. Don't buy. Stick with carrots and vet dental checkups.

Made my dog vomit
My very healthy dog became extremely unwell after eating this product, vomiting and drooling. The vet gave him an anti nausea injection, and said not to feed the DentaStix to him again. He recovered thankfully and I threw the pack out.
Made dog have bloody stools
My dogs have been eating them for years. Dog got runs with blood in it. She refused to eat them. Makes me wonder if they have changed formula. She has been fine since not eating them.
You would not believe what new dentastix can do to your dog..
Do not give your dogs dentastix I can't score a 0..... These nearly killed my dog.. She became so ill, lethargic, water diarrhea, she was so sick, I took her to the vets where she was so dehydrated they had to keep her in, they gave her fluids and intravenous antibiotics thinking it was infection, we went to get her from vets in the morning and they said you need to prepare for the worse... We nursed her at home syringing water into her mouth, and even spoke about putting her down.. Anyway she picked up and a couple of days later the sparkle ca...me back into her eyes, she started eating and was fine. I gave her a dentastix and bam back down again, water diarrhea just laid in her bed.. I though no the infection is back.. I laid in bed that night and thought I wonder if its dentastix, couple of days later she was fine again.. I left it a month until she was fit and I gave her a quarter of a dentastix and again violent diarrhea again... I have contacted dentastix and they aren't bothered and intend taking this further.

Diarrhea through 5 counties
I gave our 2 dogs these 'treats' the night before a long drive across Europe. Both dogs started having Diarrhea in the UK before becoming much worse through France, Belgium and Holland. By Germany one had started vomiting and at the end of the day she was pooping blood. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.
My dog got bumps on his head
My dog he loves these treats and I've just recently brought the improved formula ones mind you the "56 box" and with in a few days of having the new ones he has bumps on the top of his head from a allergic reaction.. not happy these were his favourite treats
Gave my Staffordshire Bullterrior constant Diarrhea, his tummy has never been so bloated. He refuses to eat them now and hides them in his secret spots throughout the house.
