Two brands of dry dog food have been recalled due to concerning elevated levels of Vitamin D, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Nutrisca and Natural Life both voluntarily recalled their products. The companies say they received three complaints from pet owners about Vitamin D toxicity after their dogs ate the food. They investigated and found that a formulation error led to the elevated Vitamin D levels.
The FDA says dogs that ingest high levels of Vitamin D may show symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. Vitamin D toxicity can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction.
