Symptoms Of Vitamin D Toxicity In Dogs

– vomiting
– decreased appetite
– weight loss
– increased drinking and urination
– excessively drooling

The FDA states, “Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, so unlike water-soluble vitamins, when a dog – or other animal – gets too much, the excess is not rapidly excreted in his or her urine. Instead, it’s stored in fat tissue and the liver. Excessive vitamin D can lead to kidney failure and even death.”

Symptoms can occur in a matter of hours or days.

If you have fed any of the recalled product and your pet is showing any of the above symptoms, call your vet immediately.
