Blue Buffalo Pet Food Gets Recalled After Pets Get Sick

Blue Buffalo Co. Ltd. has recalled some of its dry dog food because it could contain too much vitamin D and may make dogs who eat it sick, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.

So far, 36 cases have been reported nationwide where dogs showed signs of having high levels of the vitamin including lethargy, drinking an unusually high amount of water and frequent urination, the FDA said. All of the dogs’ health improved with a change in food and none show any long-term health problems.

High levels of vitamin D in dogs can cause hypercalcemia, which is a serious and potentially fatal illness that affects organ function and can cause renal failure, coma and death in untreated cases, according to The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Although we routinely feed and recommend the Royal Canin brand of food for your pet, you can NOW order Science Diet through our online store.  Remember too that shipping is always FREE!  Visit our site product site to learn more.
