Hill's Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling select canned dog food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D.
The recall involves both Hill's Prescription Diet and Hill's Science Diet canned foods.
Elevated levels of vitamin D can lead to potential health issues, including vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling and weight loss, according to Hill's website. When vitamin D is consumed at very high levels it can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction.
