The company stated that high levels of vitamin D fed to a pet over a short period (weeks/months) “should not cause undue concern”.
However, over a longer period of feeding,“ingestion of elevated levels can lead to potential dog health issues depending on the level of vitamin D and the length of exposure, and dogs may exhibit symptoms such as lethargy, stiffness, vomiting and diarrhoea”.
Mars Pet Care said: “Mars Petcare UK is recalling the above products. Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling these products. The company will also be contacting customers who have bought the affected products wherever possible.”
