Another Dog Food Recall To Watch Out For, It Could Make Your Dog Sick
We all want to make sure our four-legged fur family is safe, happy, and healthy.
We love our dogs like their our kids. I feel there's been several dog food recalls within the last couple of months. Here's one more for you to check out.
According to nj.com, Purina is issuing a recall on certain bags of Purina dog food that is making dogs sick.
Their illness is vomiting and kidney failure.
The press release from Purina:
Nestlé Purina PetCare Company is voluntarily recalling select lots of Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EL Elemental (PPVD EL) prescription dry dog food due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs; however, ingestion of elevated levels can lead to health issues depending on the level of vitamin D and the length of exposure. Vitamin D toxicity may include vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, and excessive drooling to renal (kidney) dysfunction.
Purina is taking this action after receiving two contacts about two separate confirmed cases of a dog exhibiting signs of vitamin D toxicity after consuming the diet, to date. Once taken off the diet, each of these dogs recovered.
The dog food that was affected was dry dog food and was distributed throughout the U.S. only through veterinary clinics, Purina Vet Direct, Purina for Professionals, and select retailers that had prescriptions only, according to purina.com.
