About the Dog Food Recall
This dog food recall is being conducted in an abundance of caution. Fromm advises that the recalled food does not contain the recommended levels of vitamins and minerals, specifically containing an excess of vitamin D. The company advises to look for symptoms in your dog only in situations where an affected product is the only food that the dog has eaten for an extended period of time. In this case, look for a decrease in appetite. Although no health problems have been reported at this time, Fromm has recommended to not feed your dog the foods that have been recalled. Fromm has notified the FDA and encouraged them to share the details of the recall with consumers.
About Vitamin D Toxicity
According to PetMD, dogs of all ages are susceptible to vitamin D toxicity, but young dogs have a higher risk. Although vitamin D toxicity usually happens when a dog eats a rodent killer, an excess of vitamin D in the diet can also cause symptoms. These symptoms may include:
- Loss of appetite
- Increased thirst
- Increased urination
- Dark, bloody feces
- Blood in vomit
- Weight loss
- Muscle tremors
- Abdominal pain
- Excessive drooling
It is unlikely that your dog will experience symptoms unless they consumed the affected product for a long period of time. As mentioned, if this is the case, monitor your dog for these symptoms.
What to Do
If you have one of the foods in question, stop feeding it to your dog. Fromm advises you to return the product where it was purchased for a full refund. If you have questions regarding the recall, contact Fromm Family Pet Foods at 800-325-6331.
