What Is Beef Thyroid?
Excessive consumption of beef thyroid can result in common symptoms such as increased heart rate, increased thirst, excessive urination, restlessness, and weight loss.
If a dog consumes too much beef thyroid in a short time span, these symptoms may become more severe and include symptoms like labored breathing, diarrhea, and vomiting.
If you believe your pet has consumed too much beef thyroid, consult your veterinarian as soon as possible.
What Caused The Recall?
The FDA advised Dave’s Pet Food that one lot of their product was tested and found to have excessive beef thyroid hormones.
Following further tests, the FDA received four related cases of dogs consuming the product and having low fT4 and TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone).
No other products produced by Dave’s Pet Food are affected by this recall.
The voluntary recall has been overseen by the U.S Food and Drug Administration, to which the company has cooperated fully.
