While vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, excessive amounts can be lethal. If you own any of these products, discontinue feeding them to your dogs immediately! Veterinarians should also report any cases of possible vitamin D toxicity to the local FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators or through the Safety Reporting Portal. Pet owners can also report suspected cases to the FDA as well.

Since this is a developing situation that is being thoroughly investigated, it is likely that more brands will be added to the list.

According to the FDA:

“After receiving complaints from pet owners about dogs with vitamin D toxicity, one of the firms reported to the FDA that it was recalling dry pet food due to potentially toxic levels of vitamin D. Many other brands with a common contract manufacturer have also been recalled. The FDA is working with the contract manufacturer to provide a comprehensive list of affected brands.

FDA scientists are still analyzing reports and the information currently available to determine whether the illnesses are definitively connected to diet.

FDA scientists have evaluated samples of some of these products, and State and private lab test results indicate that the food contained as much as approximately 70 times the intended amount of vitamin D. Consuming food with such high levels of vitamin D is potentially toxic to dogs and in severe cases may lead to kidney failure and/or death.”
