A Brisbane vet is warning all Aussie pet owners about a dog toy sold in Kmart stores.

The Wilston Vet says of the $5, two-handled tug pet toy “They are brittle, and somehow break, and dogs think it’s a good idea to swallow them.”


A Kmart Australia spokeswoman told 7NEWS.com.au, “We want all members of the family; including our furry friends, to have a safe and positive experience when using our products at home. This is why we encourage customers to carefully read through all product care labels, to ensure they are selecting toy’s that reflect their pet’s size and play style.”
