Nutrisca and Natural Life Pet Products said a formulation error led to the elevated vitamin D in the products.

The companies said they became aware of the elevated levels of vitamin D after receiving complaints from three owners that their pets had suffered vitamin D toxicity.

Dogs with elevated levels of vitamin D may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling and weight loss.

People with dogs who have consumed any of the products listed above and are exhibiting these symptoms should contact their veterinarian.

Consumers should stop feeding their dogs the products and should either dispose of the products or return the products to the places of purchase for refunds.
