Royal Canin has recalled a product in South Africa due to signs of contamination — we do not know if it’s related to the wheat gluten. 19 cases of acute renal failure was reported there.
Vets Choice, manufactured by Royal Canin, is a premium dog food product sold only at veterinarian’s offices and pet shops.
According to South African Veterinary Association’s Gerhard Steenkamp, Royal Canin decided to recall all Vets Choice products after there were signs of contamination in the food.
Recently, there were confirmed cases of 19 dogs in Cape Town and Johannesburg who’d presented with acute renal failure, all of whom appeared to have been fed Vets choice products. According to a statement sent out to veterinary surgeons across the country and in the possession of News24, it wasn’t clear what had caused the condition.
