Here we are again with another dog treat recall. A voluntary recall has been issued on limited lots of some Milo’s Kitchen dog treats.
I honestly have to say that until I started monitoring treat recalls a little more closely for this blog, I didn’t realize how often they happened. I’m glad to now be more aware and I am even happier to be able to pass this information on to you.
Here’s what you need to know about the Milo’s dog treats recall.

About Elevated Beef Thyroid Hormone
A dog that is eating something containing elevated beef thyroid hormone could exhibit symptoms such as:
- increased urination
- increased thirst
- increased heart rate
- weight loss
These symptoms would likely go away when the dog is no longer eating food containing the elevated levels of thyroid hormone.
If a dog consumes high levels of beef thyroid hormone for an extended amount of time, the symptoms could become more severe and include:
- rapid breathing
- labored breathing
What should I do?
If you have purchased any of the specific lots of Milo’s dog treats listed above, stop feeding them to your dog immediately! If your dog has eaten these lots of treats and is exhibiting any of these symptoms, it is recommended that you contact your dog’s veterinarian.
