Chelsea – February 21, 2017:
Dog loves these and the only ingredients are salmon and salt. It’s so hard to find treats for dogs without chicken in them, these are great!
Dee – March 24, 2017:
Atlantic salmon, salt, $3.99, and made in Florida – what’s not to love!
Linda – April 1, 2017:
Welp, I bought these in a rush and do not see anywhere on the package that tells me where they are made. Isn’t that required?
Based on the issues with jerky for dogs the past few years, I cannot assume that these were made in America and could just as easily come from China and therefore be dangerous.
So, can’t give a good review. And these will be going back.
TJ’s … please include country of origin on your packaging.

I saw 2 ingredients on the package and was excited to see something so natural for $4… After giving both my dogs one treat, within 6 hours both have had extreme, loose diarrhea. I have two yorkies and they haven’t been able to eat or poo normally over a day. I am disappointed and now on my way the vet. Skip the treats here for small dogs at least!
Susie – April 26, 2017:
I just bought the treat yesterday and gave only half portion of treat and after 8 hrs, my dog vomited and started having bad diarrhea. Very disappointed and had to take her to Vet. Now worry about my dog, hope stop having diarrhea.
Sam Granger – June 9, 2017:
I have big dogs and they love them but only gove half a strip a day.
They are made in Florida and my dog Sam loves them. Goes mad fir them!
Rosa Foster – June 9, 2017:
My dogs absolutely love these!
It’s so good to see a salmon treat like these in Trade Joe’s.
Pat Meehan – July 21, 2017:
Stupidly bought them, then saw no listing of where these are made, just distributed by a California co. Will return these and the liver treats
Sleep deprived dog owner – August 1, 2017:
It’s really hard to pinpoint what causes a dog to get violent diarrhea. But I gave these to my dog who has an extremely strong stomach the night before and by morning he had diarrhea. I thought he’d just poop whatever was in him but it didn’t stop. He was so sick with diarrhea I had to go to the vet twice and had him on iv bc of his dehydration. $600 and 4 days later he’s on the mends and still taking antibiotics but I’m wary now. I’m going back to Plato dog *treats.
Alexandra Kay – November 1, 2017:
my dog also got terrible diarrhea. It lasted for over a day and she was miserable and I was quite worried about her. Extreme. She did eat too many, but still…other treats have never done this to her. And there’s a reminder on the package to provide water to your pet at all times…makes me wonder if there isn’t a LOT of salt in these or something… Will NEVER give her another one of these… and it is misleading as to where it is from and it is definitely raised salmon and it was bad news for my 60 pound boxer/pit mutt.
Jessica – December 28, 2017:
These treats made my Boston Terrier vomit and have bloody diarrhea within hours of eating one. He continued to be sick through the night, which resulted in me scrubbing the carpet at 4am. Now I’m watching him closely to make sure he isn’t dehydrated and needs to go to vet this morning. I will never give these treats to my dog again. Based on my experience and the reviews above, it appears there is something seriously wrong with these treats and should not be fed to dogs unless you want a very sick dog.
Jan P Ferris PhD – December 29, 2017:
On two separate occasions several weeks apart, I gave my 60 lb, Standard Poodle one of these salmon jerky treats. Both times, several hours later, he puked and had slightly mushy poop. Too much coincidence for me. I’m aware Trader Joe’s takes very popular branded products and sometimes puts their own label on it. Who makes these damn things? I would like to know. While the label claims the fish is from Scotland, there is no other info where these are actually manufactured. Never buying these again.
Bobbie Gentry – January 5, 2018:
I just bought these for my chihuahua (who has tracheal collapse) and since they are *crispy*, not soft, I rest them in some water for a minute before I tear them into small pieces. Well, yesterday, I found a small (about 3/4 inch) piece of bone! Not Good. If I hadn’t softened the piece first, I might not have even noticed it! I’m taking them – and the bone – back to the store where I purchased them. They need to be recalled.
Joseph – January 7, 2018:
My dog goes mad for them just dont over treat them a sthey are very rich
I give half a strip
Sue Reid – January 7, 2018:
I recently came across these treats and my dogs love them!
April – January 7, 2018:
Please make them smaller and softer as my dog can only eat half a strip he is a cocker spaniel
If you could do them soft also??
Sam loves these though
Brenden Marks – January 8, 2018:

Dawn Meisch – March 27, 2018:
These make my dog vomit. They are going in the trash.
Brian Davis – May 23, 2018:
My Alaskan Malamute became very sick from the Trader Joe’s Salmon Jerky Dog Treats and the Trader Joe’s Salmon & Sweet Potato Dog Treats. My wife brought them home, and I questioned them, but she has such a high opinion of Trader Joe’s, I let my guard down. My dog’s stools just kept getting looser and looser, to the point of watery & bloody diarrhea, vomiting, and loss of appetite. It was only after coming home from a $200 trip to the vet where no cause of the sickness could be determined that I found others has the same problem. I will never let my guard down again on any type of processed pet food or snacks! I should have known better; the things literally didn’t smell right. I will continue to make all of my dog’s food and snack so I know what he is getting.
CJN – June 6, 2018:
Our dog loves these and we haven’t had any issues with them. Only problem is that they are VERY fishy smelling so make sure you close the bag. We also only feed one per day max and he gets plenty of water (60 lb pittie mix).
Debbie Murphy – September 24, 2018:
I recently bought the Salmon and Sweet Potato treats. Still no information on the packaging to inicate where they are made and what else is in them. After just ONE, my 77 lb Doberman Pincher became violently ill and vomited for half the day until her stomach was completely empty. I’ll never buy these again and I am reporting them to every one who will listen. I know it was the treat, because she had been to the vet a couple of days before and was fine. Feeding her these treats were the only thing that was different in our routine. Something is not right here.
Shanna – October 26, 2018:
Zero stars, beware! Made my dog sick on 2 separate occasions that I gave him a small piece broken off. After a few hours he was violently vomiting all over, both times. They say the only ingredients are salmon and salt. Either it’s bad rotten Salmon ot way too much salt. My dog eats Castor Pollix Salmon dog food daily with no problem at all!
They should stop selling these!!! I threw them in the trash.
Elyssa Jenkins – December 7, 2018:
These made Salmon Jerky treats from Trader Joe’s made our puppy very sick! They should be taken off the shelves! I wish I saw all of these horrible reviews earlier. We love Trader Joe’s so trusted they would have quality treats for the dogs -big mistake! Our 4 month old puppy ( who Lives different types of treats) had diarrhea and was vomiting throughout the night. We ended up spending over $400 on an emergency veterinarian appointment.
Jerry Dunton – December 30, 2018:
We we feel great about giving our English setter, Spy these very nutritious treats that only contains Atlantic Salmon and salt! He absolutely loves them too! Jerry
Melanie Bermenez – February 1, 2019:
I have never had an issue with animal treats from Trader Joe’s. I suspect some of us got a bad batch but it will not be something I test out again. I’m going on day 2 of vomit and diarrhea. I have a Dutch Shepherd he weighs 105 lbs he has hardly eaten in the last 24 hours. I had to force feed him to keep him nourished. I may have to take him to the vet if his symptoms worsen. The package was not expired, they did not smell foul.
I can not express how disappointed I am of this product. I believe a thorough investigation should be launched before this causes the death of a dog.

Just bought some TJ’s Salmon Jerky. Out of the bag each piece looks like a thin slice of sourdough bread (flat and oval) dipped in reddish paste. It breaks up the same way as a slice of bread treated with dried paste. The ingredients say only salmon and salt but this looks and behaves nothing like salmon jerky – skeptical and disappointed.
Annelise – March 24, 2019:
My dog ate these treats and he’s been having diarrhea and vomiting. These are bad news. Headed to the vet in the morning.
Elisabeth – April 30, 2019:
My dog’s been eating TJ’s salmon jerky and salmon sweet potato treats, and she’s been having diarrhea. Additionally, there’s been mucus and blood in her poop. I wish I had come across everyone’s reviews earlier. I trusted TJ’s too much!
Stephanie – May 10, 2019:
Purchased these for a teething pup. Thought you could not go wrong with salmon….good lord….horrendous diarrhea for four days ending with a vets trip, antibiotics…. I can not recommend these. Too many people mentioning the same diarrhea problem. Exercise caution.
Nicole Gehweiler – May 20, 2019:
0 STAR! Serious vomiting and diarrhea for two days so far!! They really need to take these off the shelves. The second day is when blood showed up in her stool. Keeping her hydrated but may have to take her to the vet for fluids. Have taken her off food for 24 hours to see if that helps (she does have an appetite, but threw up her breakfast the day after it all started) Poor little thing. These treats should not be on the shelf. After reading SO many reviews that say the same thing. Please TJ’s stop selling these!
