Recalls For Pet Owners

The City of Wichita Falls Animal Services Center is advising pet owners and citizens of two recalls.

One if for pet food and the other is for heartworm pills.

The Procter $ Gamble Company has recalled specific lots of dry pet food for both dogs and cats.  The product has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.  The brands affected are Eukanuba and Iams dry foods.

Salmonella can affect animals eating the food and there is a risk to humans from handling the contaminated pet products.  You are advised to thoroughly wash your hands after being in contact with these products.

If you are infected with Salmonella you may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea or bloody diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Fever

Pets infected with Salmonella may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting.  Some pets may exhibit a decreased appetite and abdominal pain.  If you believe your pet has consumed the recalled product and exhibits symptoms, please contact your veterinarian immediately.

For specific lot number and to confirm whether or not your food may be involved in this recall, go to this link.

The second recall involves heartworm prevention tablets from Virbac Animal Health and sold under the name of Iverhart Plus Flavored Chewables.  This is a popular monthly pill given to dogs in the upper third of the weight range unprotected against heartworm infection

Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes and are easily transmitted to dogs and cats. If left untreated, heartworm disease can be fatal. Heartworm prevention is sold thru local veterinary clinics after a negative heartworm test is performed.
