Suggested Veterinary Products

vitamin DMissouri-based pet food companies Natural Life Pet Products and Nutrisca are recalling certain dry dog foods following three complaints from pet owners about vitamin D toxicity.

According to the companies’ recall notices on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website, the presence of excessive vitamin D came from a formulation error.

Symptoms of dogs ingesting too much vitamin D include vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss.

According to the notices, consumers should immediately stop feeding the following products to their dogs:

  • Nutrisca Chicken and Chickpea Dry Dog Food (4 lb., 15 lb., and 28 lb.)
  • Natural Life Chicken & Potato Dry Dog Food (17.5 lb.)

The companies urge consumers who have purchased the products affected by this recall to dispose of it and contact a veterinarian should their animal show symptoms of vitamin D toxicity.

One thought on “Two food companies issue recalls following customer complaints of vitamin D toxicity

  1. What was the Vitamin D2 and D3 levels of these animals. We run a lot in livestock so have some base lines. So far never seen toxicity.
    Thanks
