It even gets worse..

Re: It even gets worse..


And now the supposed ” Global Leader in Pet Nutrition”, Hills is
recalling a prescription veterinary diet.

It is a diet used for weight loss and diabetes in cats.

At my practice we only special order in Hills prescription diets,
and we have no current clients feeding it ( fortunately).

Here is the details of the expanded recall…

Hills Pet Nutrition, Inc.Recalls Single Product,
Prescription Diet???? m/d???? Feline Dry Food, Only Product Containing Wheat Gluten.

Hill?????s Pet Nutrition, Inc. is voluntarily recalling Prescription Diet
m/d Feline dry food from the market. Hill?????s is taking this precautionary
action because during a two-month period in early 2007, wheat gluten for
this product was provided by a company that also supplied wheat gluten to
Menu Foods. U.S. Food and Drug Administration tests of wheat gluten samples
show the presence of a small amount of melamine.

Recalled products U.S. & Canada UPC* Size
Prescription Diet???? m/d???? Feline dry food 52742 42770 4 lb. bag
Prescription Diet???? m/d???? Feline dry food 52742 42790 10 lb. bag

Why is a company who is supposed to have the higghest quality of ingredients,
and the strictest quality control and testing, using the same source of
wheat gluten used by all of those inexpensive supermarket brands?

This is a prescription diet- only sold to veterinarians who are told it is
of the “highest standard and quality”.

Yet again, another large pet food company is outsourcing to get the most
inexpensive ingredients..and now more pet’s lives are affected.


P.S. There are reports of cats showing signs of kidney failure from
being fed exclusively m/d..

It is causing a problem.

You won’t see me ever feeding or reccomending a Hills product again.

If you know anyone on this product, please contact them immediately.

It’s Your Pet- Heal Them At Home!

Best Wishes

    I assume this has all passed, but we have used Hills Prescription CD for all of our boy cats; 1 had 4 UTI’s and the vet prescribed it for all. Has there been a problem with it? We lost the 1st boy Oct ’08 to sudden kidney failure and the 2nd one in Oct.’09 to an initiallty dx’d flea anemia, which turned out to be acute cardiac failure-horrible. Never once did he show anemia in blood work. Each was close to 12yr. Now the ‘baby’ is about 18mo. and I worry. Each death was so sudden. Just wondering,
