A pair of brands of dry dog food are coming under a voluntary recall after half a dozen dogs got sick after eating them.

The American Kennel Club posted the alert this week for Nutrisca and Natural Life Pet Products.

The report goes on to say that through an investigation, it was discovered that the food contained too much Vitamin D.

According to the AKC report:

Signs of vitamin D poisoning include vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst and urination, weakness, excessive drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, and weight loss. In severe cases, it can lead to kidney failure. Symptoms generally start within 12 to 36 hours.

The specific food that is being recalled includes the following Nutrisca bags that have a best by date code of Feb. 25, 2020, through Sept. 13, 2020:
