If you’re thinking about gifting your dog with some bone treats for the holidays, think again.

Treats made with real bones can be just as dangerous for your dog as brittle animal bones, according to a new warning from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

“Giving your dog a bone treat might lead to an unexpected trip to your veterinarian, a possible emergency surgery or even death for your pet,” stated Carmela Stamper, a veterinarian in the Center for Veterinary Medicine at the FDA.

Many dogs have choked on the treats.
Fifteen of the dogs died.
