WellPet, makers of Wellness Natural Pet Food, are voluntarily recalling some lots of their canned food due to potentially insufficient amounts of vitamin B1 ( also known as thiamine).
Wellness Canned Cat Food (all flavors and sizes) with best by dates from 14APR13 through 30SEPT13
and Wellness Canned Cat Chicken and Herring (all sizes) with the best by date of 10 NOV13 and 17NOV13.
If you have cat food from these lots, you should stop feeding your cats. You may call WellPet at 1-877-227-9587 to arrange for return of the product and reimbursement.
Early signs of thiamine deficiency may include loss of appetite, salivation, vomiting, and weight loss. In advanced cases signs may include ventroflexion (downward curving) of the neck, wobbly gait, falling, circling, and seizures. If treated promptly, thiamine deficiency is typically reversible.
Please contact your vet immediately if your cat is displaying any of these signs.
