Pets in Peril: Recognize the Signs of Poisoning

March 19, 2007 — Since a number of cases of kidney damage among cats and dogs prompted a voluntary recall of numerous popular brands of pet food, including Iams, Nutro and Eukanuba, many pet owners have begun to worry that their pets, too, may be affected.

If your dog or cat is exhibiting the following signs, you should seek the opinion of a veterinarian immediately:

Uncharacteristic lethargy

Severe loss of appetite


Profound changes in eating and drinking

Increased urination

If you have been feeding your dog or cat one or more of the products that have been recalled, you should contact your veterinarian and arrange for tests to see if your pet's health has been affected. Here again is a link to the list of recalled foods

Pets will not always exhibit signs of kidney damage, so it is best to have them screened for potential problems.
