DOG owners should urgently check if they feed their animals food from Hill’s Pet Nutrition as the manufacturer has recalled a number of products over health fears.
Hill’s Pet Nutrition says some batches of dog food contain high levels of vitamin D, which can cause vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss.
Hill’s is recalling a number of dog food items including batches of these Prescription Diet r/d Canine 350g tins
Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, according to the pet food manufacturer.
But it says when large amounts are eaten it can result in health problems, including renal dysfunction – more commonly known as kidney failure.
You should immediately stop feeding your pets with the food and contact your vet if your dog seems unwell.
Trading Standards adds that you can return the dog food to where you bought it for a full refund.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition says the items were sold in pet shops, vets clinics, and via its website.
The Sun has found some of the recalled items on sale at PetsatHome for £2.69 where they’re now listed as being out of stock, although we don’t know if the retailer sold the exact batch codes in question.
It comes after the manufacturer recalled certain batches of five dog food products in January amid the same concerns.
The latest recall sees three new products added to the list, as well as two new batches of items that were recalled in January. See the box above for the full list of items.
Here’s how to check for the SKU Number and the Lot Code/ Date Code
Check for the SKU Number on the bottom or side of tins and for the Lot Code/Date Code on the top of tins to see if you have the affected cans.
If you have any questions, you can contact Hill’s Pet Nutrition at email@example.com or by calling 0800 282 438.
The manufacturer adds that no dry foods, cat foods, or treats are affected.
In a statement on its website, the manufacturer said: “We care deeply about all pets and are committed to providing dog owners with safe and high quality products.
“Hill’s has identified and isolated the error and, to prevent this from happening again, we have required our supplier to implement additional quality testing prior to their release of ingredients.
Hill’s is also recalling its Prescription Diet k/d Canine 370g tins
“In addition to our existing safety processes, we are adding our own further testing of incoming ingredients. All products within Hill’s control have been placed on hold. Hill’s will be contacting all clinics and retailers to retrieve products.”
The Sun has contacted Hill’s for further comment and we’ll update this story if we get a response.
