Pet owner finds stone in packet of dog biscuits

A pet owner was furious after finding a stone in a packet of gourmet dog biscuits he bought at Pets At Home, according to a report on the Liverpool Echo website.


Chris Smith told the Liverpool Echo that he bought the packet of 'Deli Dog Choc Chip Mini Cookies' for his mongrel Bailey at the Pets At Home store in Speke.


Chris said that he noticed something glimmer as he poured out the treats for Bailey, halfway through the pack.


A spokesperson for Pets At Home confirmed to the Liverpool Echo that the item found in the biscuits was a piece of stone.


"We were concerned to learn from Mr Smith that he had found what he believed to be a piece of glass in a dog biscuit.


"Of course we take complaints of this nature extremely seriously and, having investigated with our supplier, we can confirm this wasn’t glass but a small stone."
