The FDA is alerting pet owners and veterinary professionals about several recalls in dry dog foods.

Nine dry dog food brands have been recalled after receiving complaints that 'the dogs consuming these brands experienced vitamin D toxicity,' according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration

Symptoms to look for in your pet include drooling, vomiting, lethargy and loss of appetite. Consuming foods with toxic levels of vitamin D can even lead to kidney failure or other life-threatening side effects, veterinary professionals said. 

The FDA  recommends looking for an AAFCO label on the side of pet food bags, like Purina has, when choosing a brand to feed your pet.

This label guarantees that there has been a feeding trial which guarantees that the food is safe for your pet's consumption.
