Pet Food Recall

Our goal here at Royal City Animal Hospital, is to keep you up to date on important pet related issues and topics. One such issue has come up in the past week, that we feel all pet owner's need to be aware of:
 a pet food recall.

Diamond Pet Foods, the manufacturers of many well-known brands of pet food have recently issued a voluntary recall of many of their products due to a potential Salmonella contamination. The recall does include many brands sold in Canada as well as the United states.

Salmonella is a group of bacteria that can severely affect pets fed the following foods, as well as potentially affecting their owners. Pets with Salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

States and Provinces affected by the recall.
Brands affected include:

If you feed your pet any of these products, please check out the link below for further information.
