ST. GEORGE ̵

1; Hill's Pet Nutrition has expanded a voluntary recall of 44 varieties of the Hills Prescription Diet and Hills Science Diet canned dog food to contain potentially toxic levels of vitamin D.

The original recall took place 31 January after a vitamin blend from a US supplier added to the food was found to contain elevated levels of vitamin D. After further product testing, the company expanded this recall on Wednesday to include more items, a total of 85 and 44 varieties of canned dog food. According to an American Food and Drug Administration announcement.

The affected boxes were distributed through pet stores and veterinary clinics across the US

Hills Science Diet and Hills Prescription Diet are worn at Petsmart in St. George and Hills Science Diet is worn at Petco in Washington City. Representatives from both stores told St. George News they had recently been made aware of the recall and will remove the affected products from the shelves as soon as possible.

No dry dog ​​food, cat food or treat was affected.

Products marked with one of the affected party codes should not be fed to pets and discarded or returned to the store where it was purchased.

Hills Pet Nutrition was first informed that the product contained excess vitamin D after receiving several complaints that dogs were sick after eating their food.

Although vitamin D is an important nutrient for dogs, it can cause various health problems depending on the amount consumed and the length of the exposure. Dogs that have been using too much vitamin D can show symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive wasting and weight loss.

When consumed at high levels, vitamin D may occasionally lead to life-threatening health problems such as kidney failure.

Dogs who have used the affected product and experience symptoms of excessive vitamin D should be taken to see a vet.

In most cases, when the pet no longer eats the product, they are expected to be fully recovered, according to the announcement.

"As a company, and as loved ones themselves, we deeply regret the concern that this recall and subsequent expansion has caused pet parents and any possible effects the recalled foods may have had on pets," Hill's Pet Nutrition said. in the announcement. "We are committed to doing more to maintain the standard of animal care that pet parents and veterinarians expect from us to regain confidence."
