The KraMar Pet Company Pty Limited has announced a voluntary product withdrawal of its KraMar Supa Naturals chicken breast strips made in China. KraMar is taking this step as a precaution because of an alleged association between the product and instances of Fanconi-Like Syndrome in small dogs. The products affected are:

KRAMAR SUPA NATURALS CHICKEN BREAST STRIPS 110G –PRODUCT CODE 85149 APN 9316457851494

KRAMAR SUPA NATURALS CHICKEN BREAST STRIPS 150G – PRODUCT CODE 85148 APN 9316457851487

The number of cases of illness reported to KraMar is 15, since the product was launched 15 months ago. Explaining the decision KraMar’s CEO Bryan Fouche said “KraMar regards the health and welfare of all dogs as paramount.” he said “This precautionary measure has been taken despite the lack of scientific evidence because of our concerns for the welfare of dogs.”

The symptoms of Fanconi-like Syndrome are:

Decreased food consumption, although some may continue to consume the treats to the exclusion of other foods

Decreased activity or lethargy

Vomiting

Diarrhoea, sometimes with blood

Increased water consumption and/or increased urination

In severe cases, blood tests may indicate kidney failure and glucose in the urine may indicate Fanconi-like Syndrome. (According to data from the US Food & Drug Administration website, 26 September 2007). Kramar web site here.

If your dog has consumed either of these products, please call the vets to organise to have your dogs kidney function checked.
