Potentially toxic levels of Vitamin D. This is a developing situation and list may grow. The FDA will update as information becomes available.
The FDA has become aware of reports of vitamin D toxicity in dogs that ate dry dog food by a contract manufacturer, marketed under different brand names. The FDA is alerting pet owners and veterinary professionals about recall of dry dog foods after receiving complaints that dogs eating the food experienced vitamin D toxicity.
Symptoms of Vitamin D toxicity
Excess vitamin D in the diet can cause vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling and weight loss.
Vitamin D at toxic levels can cause kidney failure and death. Pet owners whose dogs have been eating the recalled brands and are showing these symptoms should contact their veterinarians.
Testing found that samples of the dog food contained excessive, potentially toxic amounts of vitamin D. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, but very high amounts can cause serious health problems like kidney failure or death.
At this time, the only pet products that have been affected are food made for dogs.
Pet owners should discontinue feeding these recalled products (UPC Codes below).
The FDA is asking veterinarians who suspect vitamin D toxicity in their patients to report them through the Safety Reporting Portal or by calling their local FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators. Pet owners can also report suspect cases to the FDA
