We are sending this email to make all of our clients aware of the voluntary recall from Hill's Pet Nutrition. We have attached the link in the email where you can view the affected SKU numbers. If you have an affected SKU that you have purchased from the Addison Animal Hospital, you can bring the cans back for a full refund or swap it out for an unaffected product. We have checked our inventory, and none of the cans that we have in stock are affected by the recall. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 630-543-9500.
"Hill’s Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling select canned dog food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. While vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, ingestion of elevated levels can lead to potential health issues depending on the level of vitamin D and the length of exposure, and dogs may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. Vitamin D, when consumed at very high levels, can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction. Pet parents with dogs who have consumed any of the products listed and are exhibiting any of these signs should contact their veterinarian.
As of March 20, 2019 Hill's Pet Nutrition has expanded their voluntary recall of canned dog food products. Below is the link to the list of cans that have been recalled, including the cans that were previously recalled, as well as the list of cans that have been added to the recall. Hill's Pet Nutrition has assured us that our clinic has not been sold any of the items on the expanded recall list. If you have any questions or concerns please contact our office at 630-543-9500.
