Popular Brands Of Dog Food Recalled After FDA Finds Them Laced With Toxic Levels Of Vitamin D

5 Signs Your Dog Needs a Probiotic

A large number of dog foods from eight different dry food brands have been recalled as a result of overly large amounts of vitamin D were found in these foods, according to the Food and Drug Administration of the United States.

Although vitamin D sounds like a good thing, excessively high levels of this vitamin are toxic to pups. In this case, the foods in question contained a massive 70 times the amount of vitamin D that was originally intended, making them completely unsafe for pets.

Eating too much vitamin D can result in severe health consequences in dogs. This includes severe vomiting, sudden loss of weight, kidney failure, and even death. The products affected are as follows.
