9 month ago

The Food and Drug Administration is warning dog owners that several brands of dog food are containing too much vitamin D, which can be toxic or lead to kidney failure.

Impacted food from Nutrisca, Natural Life Pet Products, Sunshine Mills, Inc., Kroger brand, and ELM dog foods, all sourced from a single manufacture, contained "excessive, potentially toxic levels of vitamin D, according to FDA.

The name of the manufacturer can not be disclosed because it is protected information.

Dogs that consume too much vitamin D show symptoms like vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst or weight loss. Toxic levels can cause kidney failure or death.

The FDA advise people to contact the veterinarian if their dogs were eating food from these brands or if they showed any vitamin D toxicity symptom.
