About Hill's Pet Food Recall
Hill’s Pet Nutrition recently put out a voluntary recall on their canned food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. Although animals benefit from vitamin D, ingesting too much of it can lead to potential health issues. Luckily, in most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of the canned food.
Hill’s is working in coordination with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to get the affected products recalled. As of right now, the recall only extends to canned food and does not apply to dry food, cat food, or other treats.

That's why we want to talk about the importance of year round flea and tick prevention.

Canine Influenza - What Pet Owners Need to Know
Canine influenza is a highly contagious respiratory virus that can cause severe disease and even death in extreme cases. There has been a spike in the number of dogs in the area that have been exposed to the virus in recent weeks.
- Consistent coughing
- Nasal discharge
- High fever
- Lack of appetite
- Pneumonia (in more severe cases)
If your dog is exhibiting any of these symptoms, call us at (201) 391-4342 or your veterinarian immediately.
Please do not participate in activities or bring your dog to facilities where other pets can be exposed to the virus (doggie daycares, dog parks, kennels, groomers, etc.) The virus can also infect cats.
We offer the canine influenza vaccine at Montvale Animal Hospital. Please call us to schedule your pet's vaccination today.
Please note that all dogs boarding with us must have the canine influenza vaccine. For dogs who have never gotten it before, this process includes the first shot, a booster two weeks later, and then another two week period before they can board.
