About the FDA's Pet Food Warnings
In 2018, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) launched an investigation into a potential link between dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and grain-free diets.
They recently published some new findings and we know that many of our clients will have questions regarding their pet's diet and how it may affected their health which is why our staff worked together to compile this useful Q&A.
About Hill's Pet Food Recall
Hill’s Pet Nutrition recently put out a voluntary recall on their canned food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. Although animals benefit from vitamin D, ingesting too much of it can lead to potential health issues. Luckily, in most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of the canned food.
Hill’s is working in coordination with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to get the affected products recalled. As of right now, the recall only extends to canned food and does not apply to dry food, cat food, or other treats.

Periodontal disease results from a buildup of plaque on your pet’s teeth. The bacteria associated with this plaque can spread to the space under the gum line, where it eats away at the root of the tooth, causing erosion, bone loss, abscess and may eventually result in the need for extraction of the tooth. Infections in the mouth are not only painful locally, but can also lead to the spread of bacteria through the blood stream to other organs like the heart, liver, and kidneys.
