It is recommended to discontinue feeding the affected products. Elevated levels of thyroid hormone can affect a dog’s metabolism. They can also be associated with increased thirst, increased urinating, restless behavior, and weight loss. Symptoms usually resolve after discontinued use of the product. However, prolonged consumption can lead to increased severity of the symptoms and include vomiting, diarrhea, and trouble breathing. If your pet has these symptoms, contact your veterinarian.
