Vitamin D Toxicity in Dog Food

The FDA has become aware of vitamin D toxicity in certain dogs that have consumed dry dog food under several different brand names. The only pet products that have been impacted have been for dogs, and pet owners need to discontinue feeding their pets these contaminated products—this is currently a developing situation, as more foods may be added to the list.

What Are the Symptoms of Vitamin D Toxicity?

Symptoms include:

  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Increased thirst
  • Increased urination
  • Excessive drooling
  • Weight loss

Please note that vitamin D at toxic levels may cause kidney failure and even death. If your dog has been eating the recalled food, please contact us immediately at 817-478-9238 or make an appointment online.
