There's a company near where I used to live called Stuffington Bear Factory. They primarily make "made in the usa" stuffed animals but they started making pet beds and dog toys. We buy them for our golden retriever. He has valley fever and as far as I'm concerned he has enough chemicals tormenting his body, so we feel better with the made in the usa dog toys. We also got one of the beds. I guess we just realized that he spends about 60% of his time running around with these toys in his mouth. Now think about it - if you have a product in your mouth that long, what would seep into your system????

You can buy online, her'es some direct links:

Made in the USA Dog and Cat Beds

Made in the USA Dog Toys

Enjoy!

I too refuse to buy anything from China for my pets. I've even started looking at clothes for myself and not buying them if made in China. Not only because of the scare but clothes that say it is "faux" fur, I've read, can be fur from cats, dogs or other animals. There is apparently a way to tell if it's really fake fur or if it's fur from some type of animal. Not sure how much truth there is to that but the scare alone makes me not want to buy stuff from China. And the way the animals are treated, that also makes me not want to buy anything. I read on MSNBC the other day that over 40,000 cats are killed every day in an inhumane way.

ETA: Thanks for all the links to the toys made in the USA. They are hard to come by.

Recently China had the same poison they put in dog food a few year ago in their own human baby food. It would seem that the Chinese place a higher value on profit than life. I firmly believe avoiding Chinese products.
It is about time Americans supported American products. They may cost more but the money you spend on American products stays in America. Most important; if I have a problem with an American product I can at least knock on their door. Try that with a Chinese, or other foreign product.

I check labels too! Nothing allowed in the house for dogs, "Made in China" I do not trust the plastics, or any of the materials! I try to avoid Made in China altogether but that is almost impossible. I even noticed everything from the shopping channels is from China now too!

Try Nylabone Products and many KONG Company products. Most of the Nylabone and KONG dog toys are made in the USA. However, there are some of their toys that are made in China. The labeling will state where the toy is manufactured. And a bonus is that these are quality products that will last a long time!

I agree. I, too; worry about the so-called ingredients hidden or not in toys and dog treats that are made in China. Sometimes it can still be hard to tell when a known company in the US imports materials from China to make whatever it is that they're producing. The politico types have actually sold our soul to China. We are seriously in debt to them and think that's one of the many reasons why so much has been pouring in from that country. We need more fair import/export controls when it comes to dealing with countries like China. Sen. Duncan Hunter [past Presidential candidate] pointed out several trade discrepancies we have with China and ways to change that but think it fell on deaf ears. You can Google his name with "trade to China" and there may still be links out there to click on - some with video clips. Walmart is not the only one as so many like to blame. I've often turned the labels over on many other items, to include clothes, kitchen ware, baby products, health and beauty, et al... in stores like Target, K-Mart, as well as other high-ends, and see China and many other countries. Seems anything but the USA. It's getting rarer and rarer, it seems, to see the "Made in USA" labels but they are there. Sometimes you may have better luck shopping via the internet than finding that particular item in your local store/s.
