Hill's Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling eight more varieties of select canned dog food due to potentially high levels of Vitamin D. They had voluntarily recalled 25 products for the same concern earlier this year. That brings the affected total to 33 varieties.
Recalled types include a variety of flavors of the prescription diet and science diet brands. No dry dog foods, cat foods, or pet treats are affected.
The full list of recalled products are listed on Hill's Pet Nutrition's website,here.
In a letter to veterinarians, Hill's said a review of its products determined the issue was isolated to a vitamin premix used in its canned dog foods that is limited to specific production lots.
Vitamin D is important for dogs but too much can lead to potential health issues, including vomiting, loss of appetite and weight loss. Extremely high levels of consumption can lead to renal dysfunction.
If you feed your pets this brand of food and they are exhibiting any of these symptoms, you are encouraged to contact your vet.
