Hill’s Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling select canned dog food batches due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D.
While vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, ingestion of elevated levels can lead to potential health issues depending on the level of vitamin D and the length of exposure, and dogs may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. Vitamin D, when consumed at very high levels, can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction. Pet parents with dogs who have consumed any of the products listed and are exhibiting any of these signs should contact their veterinarian. In most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of feeding.
Please note that the voluntary
recall / withdrawal
is isolated to only a few batches of the specified SKUs. No dry foods, cat foods or treats are affected.
Pet parents who purchased the product with the specific batch numbers listed should discontinue feeding and dispose of the product or return unopened product to their veterinary outlet for a refund.
We care deeply about all pets and are committed to providing pet parents with safe and
products. Hill’s has identified and isolated the error and, to prevent this from happening again, we have required our supplier to implement additional quality testing prior to their release of ingredients.
In addition to our existing safety processes, we are adding our own further testing of incoming ingredients. For further information, please contact Hill’s Pet Nutrition customer care on 0800 228 783 or infoZA@hillspet.com Monday to Friday 9am-4pm
