Hill’s Pet Nutrition recently put out a voluntary recall on their canned food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. Although animals benefit from vitamin D, ingesting too much of it can lead to potential health issues. Luckily, in most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of the canned food.
Hill’s is working in coordination with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to get the affected products recalled. As of right now, the recall only extends to canned food and does not apply to dry food, cat food, or other treats.
If you’ve been feeding your pets Hill’s canned food, please discontinue it and keep an eye out for the following symptoms:
• Excessive drooling
• Loss of appetite
• Weight loss
• Increased thirst and urination
To learn more about the canned food recall and affected products – both via name and SKU number – you can visit Hill’s website.
