About Elevated Vitamin D Levels

Dogs who have consumed elevated levels of Vitamin D may develop symptoms such as vomiting, weight loss, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, and excessive drooling. When consumed at very high levels, it can even lead to serious health issues such as renal dysfunction. If your dog has consumed any of the recalled foods and begins to show signs of any of these symptoms then call your veterinarian ASAP.

Dog parents who have purchased the affected foods should either toss it or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
