The company that sells Milo’s Kitchen® dog treats has issued a voluntary recall of two flavors because the products may contain elevated levels of beef thyroid hormone.

Dogs consuming high levels of beef thyroid hormone may be extra thirsty and urinate frequently. They may also experience weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness.

These symptoms may stop when the dog stops eating the treats. However, with prolonged consumption these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or labored breathing. Should these symptoms occur, the FDA recommends pet owners contact their veterinarian immediately.

Consumers who have purchased the specific lots of product listed above should stop feeding it to their dogs.
