What Are You Feeding Your Dog? This Brand May Cause Kidney Failure
If you're a dog owner, there's a particular brand of dog food that has a recall on one of its lines that may be toxic and cause kidney failure.
Feeding Mans Best Friend Can Be Complicated
When I was growing up, there were not a lot of dog food choices. It was either a few bags of dry dog food or a few choices of canned dog food to choose from.
Society has come a long way in feeding man's best friend with several healthy choices to choose from. Walking down the dog food isle these days can be a bit daunting.
As consumers, we hope that in reading the labels of today's dog food brands we can trust that they are safe for our pets. That's not always the case.
Dog Brand Recalled A Food Line That Is Causing Kidney Failure
Purina happens to be the brand that I feed my dog so this recall really caught my attention. Purina offers a lot of healthy choices of dog food for a variety of dog types and sizes. It's up to us pet owners to choose what we feel is best for our dogs.
If you happen to have purchased Purina's Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EL Elemental, you need to throw it away because it may cause kidney failure in your pooch.
According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EL Elemental dry dog food has elevated levels of vitamin D. The high level of Vitamin D found in the dog food may cause your dog to vomit, experience a loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and kidney dysfunction.
