Wellness Pet Foods pulls 2 cat food products

    CBS Philly reports that Wellness Pet Foods has voluntary recalled two of their cat foods because of insufficient amounts of a necessary nutrient–Thiamine (B-1).

    Check your pantry for:

    Wellness Canned Cat (all flavors and sizes) with best by dates from 14APR 13 through 30SEP13.

    Wellness Canned Cat Chicken & Herring (all sizes) with 10NOV13 or 17NOV13 best buy dates.

    If you’ve got ’em, toss ’em.

     

    You can also visit their web-site at WellnessPetFood.com.

    Early signs of thiamine deficiency may include decreased appetite, salivation, vomiting, and weight loss. In advanced cases, neurologic signs can develop, which may include ventroflexion (bending towards the floor) of the neck, wobbly walking, muscle weakness, circling, falling, and seizures.

    Thiamine deficiency can be reversible when treated on time. If your cat has consumed the recalled foods and is exhibiting these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian immediately.
