What Do I Need To Know About Vitamin D Toxicity In Dogs?
A healthy level of Vitamin D is a part of a dog’s well-being and is taken care of by their standard diet. However, if you are concerned your dog may be experiencing increased levels, they will begin exhibiting symptoms. The symptoms may include vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst and urination, excessive drooling, and unexpected weight loss.
Though it is rare, dogs that consume high levels of Vitamin D over a long duration can begin to experience serious health issues, including but not limited to kidney failure and untimely death.
If your dog is exhibiting any symptoms after consuming the potentially affected products, contact your veterinarian.
