Nestlé Purina PetCare Co. voluntarily recalled the dog food after receiving two contacts about separate confirmed cases of a dog exhibiting signs of vitamin D toxicity after consuming the diet, to date. Once taken off the diet, each of these dogs recovered.
Vitamin D is essential for dogs, but elevated levels can lead to health issues depending on the level of vitamin D and the length of exposure.
The affected dry dog food was distributed in the US by prescription through veterinary clinics, Purina Vet Direct, Purina for Professionals, and other select retailers with the ability to validate a prescription.
Bags of PPVD EL with the UPC Code and Production Code below should be immediately discarded. If there is weight loss, excessive drooling, vomiting, loss of appetite, or increased thirst or urination in a dog while eating this food, pet owners should contact their veterinarian.
