    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.

    Actually I had given one dog Greenies many times…but then we had bloody diarrhea. Then my other dog got bloody diarrhea. Several trips to the vet and significant $$$$ and I couldn’t figure out the cause. Started a process of elimination. I couldn’t imagine a product I had given before, that my vet sold at one time being the cause. When I eliminated the greenies the diarrhea stopped. I am pretty surprised with all of these very bad reviews the product is still on the market. I hope this helps get a response from the company.

    8 days ago my cat urinated in my bed twice in the middle of the night. The night before I fed him a Greenies treat while going to bed. I bought the treats two months prior for the first time and had been infrequently giving them to him. I took him to the vet and dropped him off for the day until they could get urine. Everything came back normal, except that his urine was dilute. The vet mentioned Kidney Failure being a possibility, and I requested blood work to be done. He came back with all the classic values of Kidney Failure.

    I had blood work done in the Fall of 2019 after a concerning incident- and again in April of 2020 (just over a year ago). His values on both tests were in the normal range. Nothing changed about my cat's diet in that time frame. I tried using a different cat litter at the time of buying the Greenies and continued it up until 8 days ago. In the two weeks leading up to the emergency vet trip, I noticed overall urine increasing in the litter box (I have two cats). It was difficult to gauge using the newer litter, so I paid it no mind and wanted to see what happened back on the clumping litter. I had already bought it and replaced it after the emergency incident- he is now urinating at least a week's worth (6"x6"x4" clumped) over the course of 24-48 hours.

    He continues to have no appetite. I have been having to wet canned food down significantly, over and over again in order to get him to ingest anything. He won't touch his normal diet, which is a very high quality food he has eaten for years. I am dismayed to read that there may be a similar connection for other owners, and I'm afraid that it might be too late for me to do anything about it if this is the cause. The onset of this was relatively rapid for me to believe it's CKD. His values on Monday put him at stage 3 on the IRIS scale, but the vet didn't think he should be acting this sick with the values he was at. We go back in 2 days for a second round of testing and I plan to ask for more to be done diagnostically.

    I got a bag of these for hairball control. I had never tried them before. A week later I gave her 4 treats in the morning and she threw them up. Then in the afternoon she started throwing up a green liquid and foam all night long for about 12 hours and was very sick. It was like she had been poisoned and there was nothing else she could have gotten into. She got sick at least ten or more times. I had to take her to the emergency vet hospital. They did blood work on her and the only thing wrong was her blood sugar was a little high due to the stress. They gave her fluids Intravenously as she was severely dehydrated and anti nausea medication. They gave her pills for the nausea and an appetite stimulant to take home. Cost me $430.

    I was afraid she was severely sick or going to die and did not get any sleep for over 24 hours. These were the only thing that could have caused this to happen as she had never been sick like this before. Plus she was throwing up a green liquid bile and foam which is the color of the Greenies. She is feeling better now but was not eating much or feeling good for several days. I feel terrible that I gave her these with the intention they were good for her. I am also going to contact the company and want to warn others not to buy these. I may look into getting these tested for contaminants.

    I reached out twice already in two years to let Greenies know as a loyal long time customer how I loved their products even when I had a bad stale batch purchased from my local state brothers market. I went out of my way to try a different batch from my local Target which were more fresh! My dogs love it so now I shop there for chews. But, their customer service rep end did not compensate or coupon or help in any way to alleviate the situation. Coming from 10 years in customer service I couldn’t believe this is how they treat their customers with a complaint and compliment for loyalty. Truly disappointed!

    Even though I’m horrified to read about all the horror stories of cats dying and dogs getting sick, I honestly can’t say I’ve ever had a bad experience with this company or its products. In August of 2019, I adopted Dakota who is the absolute light of my life. As a new pet owner, it was a constant trial and error with finding an appropriate dog food right down to healthy supplements and treats. I loved the ingredients list for Greenies dental treats and Dakota has never had any trouble with it.

    I’ve actually been told on two separate occasions when I scheduled a dental cleaning that it wasn’t necessary because his teeth were in excellent shape. I’ve also used pill pockets since like most dogs, the taste of medicine doesn’t exactly appeal to him. The chicken and hickory smoked flavors seem to be the best and pill time has never been easier for me. And even though my Ko doesn’t have an iron stomach, he’s never suffered from loose stools, diarrhea, or vomiting as a result of this company. I’m sad that some folks have gone through what they have with their pets’ health declining and I can only hope that I will personally never go through that experience as a result of someone else messing up.

    On Jan. 13, 2021 Greenies treats were delivered to me from Chewy.com. I got them for my middle-aged cat because she liked canned food, had some bad breath, and I wanted her to eat something that would benefit her dental health. I wanted her to eat more dry food as well and give her treats for being a good kitty. I would give her 5 to 8 morsels at night to make her happy. If I didn't give her the treats she would keep meowing and I couldn't sleep at night. In the morning I would find the morsels mostly chewed up with some residual.

    Over time I started noticing that my cat was getting diarrhea and whining when she went to the kitty litter. Several times you could tell that the Greenies were in the diarrhea as it looked a greenish color. But, when I stopped giving the treats for a few days, the diarrhea quit. Now mind you, my kitty was Siamese, so she was always vocal, and it was hard to tell what her exact issue is/was.

    A week leading up to her death she developed a need for more water, an unwillingness to eat, and then constipation or some form of blockage. She appeared to be gassy and moaned off/on in pain. She was throwing up several times a day. She became wobbly when she walked, so I trimmed her back claws thinking that was the cause -- it wasn't. She liked to jump on my lap. She was having problem jumping straight. Three times a day I hand-fed her, only to have her throw it up later. She was also throwing up liquid and became dehydrated. My kitty passed away on May 5, 2021. My other cat, who is age 15, eats only dry food, doesn't like or eat Greenies treats, and she is doing fine.

    My 2 yr old cat has been eating Greenies for almost a year and he loves them. BUT recently I had bought 2 lg bags from one of the big box stores and I had a small bag from the local grocery store. large bags were salmon flavor and catnip flavor dental treats and the small bag was also salmon flavor dental treats. All bags had more than a year before expiry date. I gave my cat some of one of the lg bags and he threw up 20min later. I didn't think it was the treats as he had not reacted to them like this before so next day I gave him some of same bag and he threw up again within 20 min. So the following day I opened the other big bag and gave him figuring it may be one bad bag and he threw up again! So then next day I gave him some from the small bag I had got at the grocery store and he threw those up also within 20 min!!! That's 3 different bags from 2 different stores!!!

    Clearly these treats are contaminated with something. After reading other reviews I see I'm lucky he was able to throw them up and is OK. Seems many pet owners weren't as lucky. WHAT A HORRID COMPANY TO SELL FOOD THAT MAKES OUR PETS SICK. I WILL NEVER PURCHASE THESE AGAIN NOR ANYTHING ELSE THAT IS MADE BY Mars Petcare US. I hope someone brings a class action lawsuit against them...it's the very least they deserve!

    Hello,

    As Many other pet owners, we experienced a loss of one of our beloved cats (superstition preclude using our cat's names). Her sister, is fairing well (fingers crossed) after treatment and special foods/medicines to arrest the damage from the Greenies Cat treats. We were perplexed when both of our cats showed symptoms of lack of lack of elimination, no interest in food, vomiting, falling, weakness, lack of motor control, and in one case coma and death within a period of 1 and 1/2 days. The cat that passed away had several of the treats. We were not able to save her and she died in my daughter's arms. We were able to get her sister to the vet. We found out later that there was an emergency weekend. Vet too late to save one of our cats, but, we were able to get our other cat treated (enema) and hydrated along with a wellness check. We now are feeding her special diet for kidney support and hydrated for the rest of her life.

    We did not know at first that Greenies was the cause of this sudden ordeal until a few days later after the Vet when we gave her sister the Greenies again and she started to vomit and fall down within 2 hours of eating them. Luckily she is a picky eater and only had one of the treats. We took her immediately to the Vet again and after rehydration and wellness check we were able to have her back home. However, she is not the same after the Greenies.

    One of the reasons that I am also writing this is to speak about the cruel and representative that we spoke to when alerting her of the Greenies Company toxicity. Her lack of concern as well as Only invested in protecting the company was absolutely obscene. Her focus was try and find out what we did wrong to have our little furbaby die! She never asked for samples to be sent to the company, etc, only the barcode numbers (granted this is important and expected) but she tried to focus on the expiration date (Dec 2021) and any other feature that took the attention away from the Greenies as the cause concern.

    In this format, I have not listed the totality of the symptoms of or ladies here as I did in the call. I had thought, naively so, that if I inform the company, there would be concern to save other Pet owners this kind of sadness and ordeal. I started the call with the fact that one of our cats have died and I am requesting that the company recall the treats.

    This may have been a little assertive, but, a life was lost over the treats. I told her that this was my Only concern, that other pet cat owners not have to experience what we had with the loss of our beloved cat. Greenies has had recalls before for dogs, so, she her lack of real concern in this issue was alarming. This representative's focus on saving the Greenies company After Greenies has has had multiple recalls for dog food was telling. However, there has been None for cats. Even after multiple cat owners have contacted the company with similar symptoms and concerns.

    Thus far, this is the only forum that even alerts cat owners that there is a toxic substance or processing in Greenies that is killing cats that are family for many of us. And, a review of this site will show that this has happened for Several Years now! This company should no longer be making any kind of pet food as it is evident that they do not know how to make it safe and after so many incidents with pet deaths and comprised heath.

    On a positive note: There is a wonderful warning system for pet owners that alerts when there are recalls: Dave at Petful. He provides alerts but, as mentioned earlier none of these cat treats have been recalled by the Greenies company. And, if there is damage for your cat, there are products that can assist in strengthening the kidneys as well as pet rehydration products after a Vet visit. Thank you and Stay Safe and Blessed!

    My dog started having full body seizures out of nowhere. I was feeding her Greenies dental bones, for her teeth, for about 5-6 months total. She had no issues with them until about 2-3 months into me feeding them to her. But I had no idea that these were the cause. I took her to the vet numerous times trying to find out what was wrong with her. They never figured it out, they only gave me epilepsy medication that made her hungry all the time.

    One day I was out and the box of greenies were on the counter, she got into the full box and had 12 seizures in one day. I couldn’t see her suffer anymore as I thought I had tried everything. So at 5 years old I had to put her down. It breaks my heart knowing if I had just stopped feeding my dog these, that she still might have been here. I don’t understand how this company has not gotten more publicity on this. It’s horrible to see all these reviews and still nothing has been done to stop them from marketing these awful treats. These are our children, and this company obviously does not care about what they’re putting in their food.

    This happened a couple of years ago but at the time I didn't write a review: I purchased Greenies off of Amazon because I wanted to be a better dog mom and take care of my corgi/ dachshund mixes bad breath and dental care. I never paid attention to my dog's stools as we had a large forested yard and because he is a private sort of fellow. However...maybe 3 or 4 days in after starting giving him Greenies I came home from work and... my dog did not meet me at the door. Instead I called out to him and he slowly and shakily made his way from another room. I knew he was sick. I picked him up... he yelped. He whimpered. Completely lethargic.

    I took him to the vet the next morning realizing that he was yelping in his sleep and that he was not getting better. The vet put him on fluids. And took x-rays saying there was an obstruction/ blockage. Though they wanted to operate we waited a day and x-rated again. The blockage had moved/ was smaller. The only thing that had changed was the Greenies in his diets. I looked up reviews and found this website.

    They cleared him to come home. Vet bill over 1500 dollars and no surgery. I kid you not; I nursed my dog back to health for over a month before he was his old self again. He couldn't poop. He would try for 15 minutes at a time straining. He remained lethargic. He couldn't run. He could barely stand. He just shakily made his way everywhere.

    I force-fed him pumpkin and coconut oil and yogurt to get him to poop. I forced him to drink water by taking him in the shower with me - it made him have to lick the droplets off of his face. My entire family was certain he was going to die... and then weeks later maybe even two months... he was recognizable as he had been. My best friend was so close to dying. Why is there not a class-action lawsuit against this company?

    The diarrhea began when I starting giving Greenies to my 10 pound, Chinese Crested. Greenies are the only thing that changed in her diet so I'm positive the Greenies caused her diarrhea. It took me over 2 weeks to finally get rid of her diarrhea and to finally get a solid stool. Once the diarrhea started, I immediately stop giving her Greenie. I started feeding her 93% lean turkey (cooked and then rinsed), frozen and thawed green peas, 1 tsp, 100% pure pumpkin (must be 100%, pure pumpkin) and 1/2 tsp slippery elm. I mixed all ingredients together and fed her this diet 2 x day for 2 - 3 weeks. Once she was on this special diet for 3 days, I began adding a very small amount of Purina Pro Plan For Sensitive Stomachs to her turkey, peas, pumpkin and slippery elm on the 4th day..

    Finally after close to 3 weeks, I was no longer giving her the turkey and peas. I continued giving her slippery elm for about another week, gradually reducing the amount I was giving her every day. Once diarrhea is under control, stop giving slippery elm. I still give her pumpkin every day which is a good sources of nutrients and fiber. 100% pure pumpkin will forever be a part of her daily diet. Just a side note on what slippery is used to treat: In the gastrointestinal tract, slippery elm acts directly.

    Think of it as a natural ** (** itself should be used with caution because it contains salicylate, a.k.a. ** and should be used only in moderation for a day or two). Slippery elm’s mucilage content coats, soothes, and lubricates the mucus membranes lining the digestive tract. It is high in fiber, and so helps normalize intestinal action; it can be used to relieve both diarrhea and constipation. The diarrhea has been a real pain and took a while to to finally get it under control. Patience is definitely required. Glad to say, my dog is now doing great, no more diarrhea and NO MORE GREENIES.

    I have given my dog Greenies for years and really didn’t notice any adverse effects till a couple of months ago. The first sign of trouble was when he had diarrhea in the house, he never has done this before. This persisted for a few days so I took him to my veterinarian and he was placed on an antibiotic and I gave him boiled chicken and rice till his tummy settled, no treats. Fast forward one week I start to give him his regular food and a few treats...no greenies, all is well.

    First day he gets a greenie and that night the diarrhea starts again, now with blood and mucous. Back to chicken rice and no treats. Good again till two weeks later gets his first greenie and it starts again. I thought maybe he had just developed an intolerance to them so knowing my brothers dog also liked greenies Gave them to him with the information about the trouble my dog had. First night his dog has diarrhea with mucous. I will never give my pets any greenie products again. I think there must be a quality control issue with the company, hope they get this resolved before something much worse happens to someone’s beloved pet.

    My one and a half year old Golden Retriever has been having bouts of severe diarrhea off and on for around 6 months. I’ve had her to the vet several times, told the vet exactly what I feed her and she was stumped, with tests being negative and exam normal. Was told to put her on Hills Science Diet I/D. My sweet girl has been on this diet several times. Diarrhea would stop, I’d then go back to her premium food for dinner and a Greenies for lunch, and the diarrhea would start again in 1-2 days. Yesterday, the diarrhea was worse than ever! Never did I suspect her being ill was due to the Greenies. After reading your reviews, I realized my poor girl is suffering from being fed a bone I thought was healthy. I’m deeply saddened to learn of several of you losing your pets to this highly toxic treat.

    In retrospect, thanks to all of you, I now know why my other dear Golden (she passed a year ago) was in distress when on medication. She refused Greenies Dental Chews, but liked having her meds in a pill pocket (made by the same company). Her lethargy, bloating and moaning could’ve been avoided had the vet told me about the serious and/or fatal effects of pill pockets. Perhaps we can get these products off the market eventually by getting our vets to listen to us and take us seriously. In the meantime, may our experiences save a cat or dog’s life, I know I’m extremely indebted to all of you for saving my precious girl. Thank you!

    I purchased a bag of Greenies for my German Shepherd. I gave him a sample from the vets office after he’d had his teeth cleaned; he was only about 5 years old. One night I gave him a full size large breed chew- he wolfs everything down - and the next night he started looking a little too round in his abdomen. I’d only seen this once before and I was helpless to do anything but not for lack of trying. Living 20 minutes from vet’s office and the time it would take to get the vet to her office, my dog started whining and crying. It seemed like a long time; I frantically tried everything to reverse his decline even pouring ** down his throat. In the end, all I could do was cry and hold him.

    This is a painful confession, but mostly a warning for all cat lovers. I believe this product played a big part in Tomasina's health decline. Here's why. She's been tossing up her food for months. She'd have bad days and then a few good days where she would play like a kitten. Recently, my sister fed our cats the 4 days I was in SD. Tomasina didn't "toss" once. Yet, when I returned she was increasingly sick until the day I called the vet and had her euthanized. She was emaciated, hollow-eyed and losing coordination.

    It was nagging at my brain so I couldn't sleep last night and began looking up reviews on "hairball control" Greenies. What I found was a lengthy story by another cat owner nearly identical to mine. A cat that reacted to the treat like a crack addict and wouldn't eat anything else, but began "tossing up" on a daily basis. The difference is that he figured it out in time. It explains why Tomasina had good days. Those were the times we ran out of her favorite treats. She was 15. I believe I failed her. (It goes without saying that Greenies has a part in it, too). If this spares even one cat owner this remorse, it's worth the confession. Please pass this on to other cat lovers.

    Upon starting a 2nd bag of Greenies, the other morning my Cavalier woke me up to go outside. I had been giving her 1 each night before bedtime. She had horrific diarrhea at least 3x at 2:00 AM, 4:00 AM and again around 6:30. Each time it was very bad and sometimes bloody. At first I thought she had gotten into some cardboard, but when it happened a 2nd night after giving her one, I realized it was the Greenies. Got on the internet and read horrible stories about other dogs getting sick from them as well, including 13 dogs that had intestinal blockage and died. Threw them in the garbage today.

    I bought the assortment box 2 months ago for my cat. She was 17 months old at the time. I have a brush and paste I use but wanted some extra protection for her teeth. Turns out she loved them. She gets the recommended amount daily for her size. She expects them after meals now. They have even seemed to increase her appetite by 33%. Good product, made in the USA and not loaded with the trash many cat treats have. The only way your cat will benefit from them is if they chew them. Swallowing whole would defeat the purpose. Your cat should be a year old prior to starting them on Greenies.

    My dog loves Greenies and I was giving her 1/2 of a Teenie Greenie, (she is 7 lbs) before bed. She begs me for them and after doing this for maybe two years, now expects it. This last week I had to bring her to the Veterinarian because she was constipated and could not poop. I tried feeding her some canned pumpkin, which was what the pet store recommended but she wouldn't touch it and by this time wasn't drinking any water either. I had to bring her to the Veterinarian so they could give her an enema. It cost me 198 dollars for the visit and the treatment.

    The veterinarian didn't ask me any questions about what she was eating and gave me no advice when I picked her up. I will not go back to that veterinarian again. When I called the next day to find out what they recommended feeding her I was told canned pumpkin, which was no help but rather what I told him I had tried to feed her. I am going to stop feeding her Greenies and see if I can get another chewie treat that is good for her teeth instead. Plus I will go back to feeding her Blue Small Senior Dog as she did well on that. I had switched to the Trader Joes Brand when a friend gave me a gift card.

    I used these things as a medical care provider of mine feeds the regular Greenies to his dog and I know him to be quite careful about everything. I stopped giving my puppy these things 3 weeks ago. I got her at 10 weeks and by 14 weeks, I already made the association of her diarrhea with the dental chews. She's now 17 weeks and I wanted to give her a treat, but I was out of treats except for the pill pockets. I took a bill pocket, split it in 4 and gave the treat to her. She had diarrhea soon after.

    I believe the problem is with glycerin in the product. I had my own issue with a sugar free syrup that was glycerin based. I didn't know it at the time I first started using it. Within 3 days, I had awful diarrhea. It occurred to me, "How did they make a sugar free chocolate syrup?" I look at the packaging and it was almost 100% glycerin (shy of the chocolate flavoring).

    I knew that glycerin should only be ingested in very small amounts for humans. I discontinued use of that product and threw it away. When my puppy was sick off the pill pockets, that's when I grabbed the Greenies dental chews and pill pockets. Both have glycerin in them as the 3rd ingredient. I am pretty sure this was what caused her bouts with diarrhea. Just say NO to pet foods and treats with glycerin in them. There is literally no reason for pet food manufacturers to use it!

X-rays show that he has and enlarged colon, severe gas in his intestines and a huge stomach packed with food because he cannot digest anything.

    Greenies are sold at our veterinarian's office. They seemed to be a popular brand and it wasn't like we were feeding him something from the dollar store --we thought we were giving him something that was good for him. That was NOT the case! He absolutely loved the Greenies he would come running if he heard the package being opened--we are absolutely sick that we willingly gave him something that made him violently ill. He is still not eating or acting normal. We have no idea if any permanent damage was done to his organs or digestive system. Greenies should be put out of business and there should be a class action lawsuit for all the pet parents and fur babies that have had to go through all this pain and suffering..not to mention exorbitant vet bills because of their NEGLIGENCE!

    If your dog does not prefer these treats, but you accept that some dogs do, why would you not recognize that it is a "no-fault" situation. Why would you leave a 2 star review for something that clearly was no fault of the treat itself? My dog absolutely loves the Greenies Original, but that's just my dog. I did have a bag appear to go bad on me, but that may have been that the bag was not sealed shut properly, and only that one time. We've been using these more for the treat value than anything to do with cleaning. Vets tell me they're not "all that". Nonetheless, we like them and will continue buying them because it buys me a few minutes to my thoughts when I get home.

    I needed to give my 12 year old beagle two pills three times a day for a urinary tract infection. I used Greenies pill pockets and I bought the 3.2 oz package that said it had "approx" 30 pills. I would be Ok with 28, or 29 or 31 - I get it approximately means not exactly 30 but it also means "near" 30. When I used them - it only had 20 pills in the package. This is grossly misleading the consumer and in my opinion leads me to distrust the manufacturer. It's hard enough in this day and age to know who to trust for the product content but to not even put the number you claim in the package leads me to grossly mistrust them. I will never buy them again. I guess I will use a good fresh piece of meat or actual peanut butter to persuade my beagle to eat pills in the future. Shame on you - Greenies! Joel ** Irvine, CA **

    My Yokie loves the Teenie Greenies, all flavors. Great for her teeth. Great for her digestion. Great for her happiness. She has been eating them for over 8 years and always loves them. Say the word “Greenies” and she comes running.

    After feeding our 4 year old lab a large breed dental chew shaped like a toothbrush she started vomiting within hours, 5 solid days of vomiting once a day and we were still seeing chunks of undigested orange pieces in her vomit. Why is this allowed on the market with so many reports of illness?
