LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11) - Hill's Pet Nutrition has issued a voluntary recall on select canned dog food products after receiving a complaint about a dog exhibiting signs of elevated vitamin D levels.
While vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, ingestion of elevated levels can lead to potential health issues depending on the level of vitamin D and the length of exposure, and dogs may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss.
Vitamin D, when consumed at very high levels, can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction.
Pet parents who purchased the product with the specific lot/date codes listed below should discontinue feeding and dispose of those products immediately or return unopened product to your retailer for a refund. For more information, please contact Hill's at 1-800-445-5777.
The following recalled canned food products were distributed through retail pet stores and veterinary clinics across the United States.
