Hill’s Pet Food has expanded it’s voluntary recall to include additional date/lot numbers of prescription canned canine diets due to potentially excessive Vitamin D from a supplier error. No dry foods, cat foods or treats were affected.
If you have purchased any Hill’s food, please check the sku/date/lot numbers with the list attached in this link.
Excessive Vitamin D levels can cause elevated calcium and phosphorous levels in the bloodstream which can adversely affect the kidneys, GI tract and heart. If your dog has been eating from the list of affected foods, please monitor your pet for increased thirst/urination, vomiting, poor appetite, diarrhea, weakness. If any symptoms are observed, please schedule an appointment for evaluation. Symptoms would usually occur within 12-36 hours but can be seen as late as 72 hours after ingestion. Prescription diets affected by the expanded recall include k/d, c/d, i/d stews, i/d turkey, g/d, r/d, and w/d.
We do not have any of the affected foods in our supply, but your supply should be checked as we only keep a small supply and most orders are placed with Hill’s on request. And, any foods purchased from online stores may also be affected.
If your dog has been eating a potentially affected diet and is not showing symptoms, discontinue immediately and monitor closely for any symptoms.
All affected food purchased from Burke Animal Clinic should be returned to us for a refund.
Fortunately, according to Hill’s, in most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of feeding.
We are working with Hill’s to facilitate support for our clients. Please call us with any questions or concerns.
