Yep, like this one:

Hill’s Prescription Diet and Science Diet Dog Food Recall

January 31, 2019 — Hill’s Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling select canned dog food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D.

Vitamin D, when consumed at very high levels, can lead to serious health issues in dogs including kidney dysfunction.

There’s a HUGE list of foods in the recall so hop on over to the Dog Food Advisor if you are feeding Hills.

Not a recall per-se, but I used to feed my animals IAMS (my angel dog Mia and both my now senior cats). Occasionally we would get a bag and half-way through the pets would begin vomiting for days. I never knew what the problem was. My smallest cat got so bad I had to take her in and it was discovered her kidney levels were off the charts. They even told me I needed to put her down within the week. I switched them off Iams and onto Merrick (sensitive stomach formula for the kitties and Ronin is on grain-free puppy), and I’ve never had problems since.

Long story short, I do not trust that brand at all anymore, as I’m pretty convinced it was the food causing the vomiting issues.

Sidenote: my little kitty (who is 14 now and only 6 lbs), has lasted 4 months after the vet told me she was dying since I switched to better food

Wow that is good to know. How long ago did it happen? I’m sure glad they are OK. Good job following your gut instinct.

The last time we had IAMS was in January/early February, but we had the same issue with vomiting and bile with the cats last october, and to a more minor extent earlyier last year as well. Mia also had issues with the iams last summer (but that could have been the oncoming liver cancer).

Since we switched to Merrick sensitive for the cats, Popo (the one with the chronic kidney issues), has gained back a full pound and very rarely suffers from vomiting, and never so badly she is puking just bile anymore. 

Ronin (our tri-pup) is on the Merrick back country puppy food. We feel pretty good about it since we’re in texas and its all locally sourced.

Oh wow I wonder if the vomiting had anything to do with the excessive Vitamin D amounts that keep happening in pet foods? Hmmm.

Yes we like Merrick too. We stayed in Hereford once, where the company still has offices. Nice people and great food. So glad it’s working for your kiddos!
