FDA announces dog food recall due to elevated vitamin D
The FDA is alerting pet owners about a voluntary recall of certain Hill’s Pet Nutrition canned dog food.
The recall comes after a complaint in the U.S. in which a dog exhibited symptoms of elevated vitamin D.
Further investigation showed that a supplier error caused the high level of vitamin D in the food.
Symptoms of elevated levels of vitamin D can include vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss.
The recall includes the following products:
The dog food was distributed in pet stores and vet clinics around the U.S.
When vitamin D is consumed at high levels it could possibly cause renal failure.
Any pet owners that recognize these symptoms should contact their vet immediately.
