Due to the elevated levels of Vitamin D, The Wet Noses Dog Treat Company voluntarily recalled their frozen Simply Nourish Dog Food.
There are approximately 51,000 packages distributed to PetSmart pet stores that contain elevated levels of Vitamin D.
Although vitamins are beneficial to our dogs’ health and food like vegetables give them the essential boosts, elevated levels are not suitable.
Dogs react to Vitamin D poisoning the same way they do when they eat a harmful plant.
So, if you notice the following symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately:
- No appetite
- Exaggerated drooling
- Excessive urination
- More thirsty
It’s essential to react right away, because dogs in contact with high doses of Vitamin D for a long time can suffer from renal dysfunction.
Below you’ll see the list of the affected products.
|Product name||Net Weight||Product Code||Best by|
|Simply Nourish Frozen Chicken & Veggies||2 lb||73725792262||11/10/2022-1/12/2023|
|Simply Nourish Frozen Beef & Barley||2 lb||73725792266||11/10/2022-1/12/2023|

|Simply Nourish Frozen Pork & Veggies||2 lb||73725792079||8/26/2022-1/13/2023|
These are the only products that were affected. So far, no illnesses were reported.
The products came in contact with higher Vitamin D levels due to a mistake by the vitamin mix producer. They decreased their dosage and increased the potency but didn’t inform the Wet Noses Company.
If you have this product, you can return it to the place you bought it from and get a full refund.
For any questions about the product or the recall, you can contact the company on any workday from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm PST by calling 1-800-938-6673.
