My 10 yr old tabby female cat was diagnosed with pancreatitis last week. She is on wet food and only hairball supplements she gets are Greenies that she loves. Packaging says up to 18 treats per 10 day per 10 lb. cat. Not that I would ever feed that but she would get between 6-8 on occasion. All the ingredients say a “healthy treat”. Judging from all the comments formula needs to be investigated….
I gave our 7 year old Moodle two Greenies over two days. On the third day he became extremely unwell. He was vomiting non stop for two hours, and began vomiting up clear liquid with maroon coloured blood through it. Took him to vet immediately where he was given two injections. Later that night he did a black poo with blood, and then had liquid blood diarrhoea (maroon coloured). This was the only thing that changed in his entire diet. I looked into greenies after this and was horrified at the number of similar cases in other cats and dogs. Our dog is active, healthy and not food driven therefore never eats scraps/ things off the ground. I would strongly discourage any other small dogs from eating these dental sticks. He has never been sick until now.

Ordered teeth-cleaning treats for cats. Received "TEENIES" for dogs. Emailed support immediately. Gmail informed me that "The recipient server did not accept our requests to connect," and continued failing for next two days. Went to their site for online support. It asked me my name three times before I found a way to get to real support. Person told me they'd get back to me immediately. That was four days ago, and they've disappeared since. Some type of weird scam site with ZERO SUPPORT. Would highly recommend against using this site for anything.
Bought the Greenies Peanut Butter Pill Pockets for my Belgian Malinois to give her meds. The smell was horrible upon opening the bag, did not smell at all like peanut butter, but I offered my dog one who just sniffed it at first, she then picked it up and immediately dropped it and would not even eat just the Greenies without the medication. Ended up throwing out the entire bag. So I do not recommend this product; the website I ordered from did not have a place for reviews (which I have recommended to them that they provide) since had I read reviews for this product prior, I would not have purchased.
Please do not buy this product. My cat died from having an obstruction and perforated intestine. She violently threw up and the greenies were 3x the size. Took to the vet after expensive treatments, I had to put her down. She was a healthy cat and I will truly miss her. DO NOT BUY, Had to give 1 star. It deserves millions of no's.
Gave my cats some Greenies after I got back from vacation. I’ll admit I probably gave them too many. One cat vomited soon after and the other vomited throughout the next day. It got to a point she was only vomiting saliva. She hasn’t eaten much today either. I saw the other reports on Greenies and felt it wound irresponsible not to share my experience.
I researched the best dental chews for dogs. Numerous sites rated greening their top choice. So about 5 years ago I changed my dog over to them. I am sorry to say they turned out to be the worst!!! I gradually notice she stopped chewing her toys and swallowed her food hole. Noticed the Greenies being so soft built up on her teeth cause severe plaque and tarter. Took her to the Vet today only to have all her teeth removed except 4. If I could get a lawyer pro bono I would sue for false advertising. If this has happened to my dog how many other have they ruined???
Purchased Feline Greenies dental treats in both chicken and catnip flavour. Gave our two cats about 4-6 each of the chicken flavour yesterday - they loved it. Great, supposed to be a healthy treat right. A few hours later our 9 month old had terrible diarrhea and he has been fairly lethargic and barely eating since and our 13 year old vomited. The only thing different was the greenies so I searched and found all the other reviews here. I am appalled to learn this is an ongoing issue that has made so many pets sick and in some cases resulted in their death! And they are still selling them! I'm furious that this company couldn't give a ** about our pet's health. Needless to say the greenies RUBBISH will be going in the bin where it belongs as it is not fit for consumption but I really hope that's the end of the issue for my cats and they recover quickly. :(.
I fed both my pups Greenies, and they’ve been having awful diarrhea the past 4 days. My pups were both totally healthy before and after 1 time of eating the treats, they’re just in bad shape. They threw up the first night, and the next morning, they both had uncontrollable diarrhea, loss of appetite, and are lethargic. Every night they both need to go out at 3am and 5am, and if I don’t take them out in time, they have accidents which NEVER happens. Please shy away from this product.
On 8/20/21, I bought a brand new bag of Peanut Butter Capsule Pill Pockets Greenies. I gave one to one dog and she had very explosive diarrhea and then vomited. She has been at the ER vet numerous times and had fecal tests, blood tests and X-rays. The X-rays revealed tons of gastritis in the intestines. She was placed on **, **, **, ** and nothing worked. I was getting ready to drive to a veterinary university hospital when I realized that It could be the Greenies. I looked online and found similar complaints. I called the vet and they agreed it finally was making sense. I strongly plead with the manufacturer to PLEASE investigate the issue.
