As you may be aware from recent media reports, there has been a voluntary recall of select Hill’s Pet Nutrition canned dog food products due to elevated levels of Vitamin D. The specific products affected may be found here: www.hillspet.com/productlist. The recall does not include any dry dog foods, cat food (dry or canned) or treats.
Recently, the kitchen at The Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center nutrition center underwent a transformation thanks to a generous gift from global pet care leader Purina. The upgrade has allowed the Veterinary Medical Center to stock more diets and to centralize diet options that historically were stored within each specialty area.
According to Dr. Valerie Parker, associate professor-clinical in the small animal internal medicine and nutrition service, the new kitchen benefits pets during their stay and when they head home too.
