HILL'S RECALLS CANNED DOG FOOD
Hill’s Pet Nutrition is issuing a voluntarily recall on some of its canned dog food products “due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D.”
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 with dogs who have consumed any of the products listed and are exhibiting any of these signs should contact their veterinarian.
How to tell if your pet's food is among any of the canned food that was recalled: (Please note that the voluntary recall, as well as the voluntary withdrawal, are isolated to only the specified SKUs and therefore no dry dog foods, cat foods (dry or canned) or treats are affected.)
Locate the product on the full list of recalled SKU's /exp dates
Expiration dates are listed under lot code/date code section
for example: "102020T10" = expiration date 10 2020 and lot T10
or view it on the Hill's website here
If your pet's food is on this list, discontinue feeding immediately.
If your pet has experienced any symptoms of Vitamin D toxicity, or if you are unsure, please call our office at 215-232-0831
