ROYAL CANIN has recalled three of its Veterinary Diet Canine canned dog foods in the wake of 24 reported cases of hypercalcemia in Canada and eight cases in the United States from November 2005 through February 2006. Left untreated, hypercalcemia (excessive amounts of calcium levels in the blood) can lead to bone defects, cardiac changes (including abnormal heart rhythm, or arrhythmia), kidney hypertension and possible renal failure, and, at especially high levels, death.
The three Waltham Royal Canin Veterinary Diet formulas are: Canine Urinary SO, Canine Calorie Control, and Canine Low Fat. We now have a full FAQ available on the Royal Canin Recall with additional information on the news.
