Hill’s Pet Nutrition Recalls Canned Dog Food

Hill’s Pet Nutrition has issued an expanded recall for some of its canned dog food due to high levels of Vitamin D. Excessive levels of Vitamin D can cause sickness in pets, including vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling and weight loss, according to the FDA.

The recall was issued on January 31, 2019, but has now been expanded to include more lot codes. The additional affected foods include:

  • Hill’s Prescription Diet k/d Kidney Care with Lamb Canned Dog Food, 13oz, 12-pack
  • Hill’s Science Diet Adult Perfect Weight Chicken & Vegetable Entrée dog food 12 x 12.8oz cans
  • Hill’s Prescription Diet c/d Multicare Urinary Care Chicken & Vegetable Stew Canned Dog Food, 5.5oz, 24-pack
  • Hill’s Prescription Diet i/d Low Fat Canine Rice, Vegetable & Chicken Stew 24 x 5.5oz cans

  • Hill’s Science Diet Healthy Cuisine Adult Braised Beef, Carrots & Peas Stew Canned Dog Food, 12.5oz, 12-pack

The affected dog food was sold through various retailers nationwide. The company has said, though, that no dry food or treats were affected. The problem was isolated to the vitamin premix from a U.S. supplier used in Hill’s canned dog foods and was limited to specific lots that can be found listed on their website.

In response, Hill’s Pet Nutrition has tripled the number of people answering phones at their call center and expanded their call center hours to be able to speak with pet parents about their concerns.

The FDA encourages owners of dogs who may have ingested the affected lots to see a veterinarian immediately and to discontinue use of and dispose of the affected food immediately.
