Hill’s Pet Nutrition Dog Food Recall
If you're a pet parent, you may want to look into where their food is coming from.
Hill’s Pet Nutrition has voluntarily recalled several of their canned dog foods. The dog food company has recalled some of their canned food products according to Fox News due to "potentially elevated levels of vitamin D."
Apparently too much vitamin D isn't such a good thing. Vitamin D is an essential source of nutrition for dogs, however if a dog ingests too much vitamin D it could have a toxic effect that can lead to kidney failure and even death.
The company said "Hill’s Pet Nutrition learned of the potential for elevated vitamin D levels in some of our canned dog foods after receiving a complaint in the United States about a dog exhibiting signs of elevated vitamin D levels. Our investigation confirmed elevated levels of vitamin D due to a supplier error.”
Symptoms of elevated vitamin D levels in dogs include, Vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, weight loss, increased urination, and excessive drooling.

None of Hill's Pet Nutrition dry food, treats or cat food has been effected.
