Our question this week was:

About the recalled food. How long does it take to show any symptoms of kidney failure? My dog has had about 6 packets of the food and so far has no symptoms.

Answer

Hi – Thanks for your email. I have not read any specific documentation about the exact times from ingestion to symptoms. I would suspect based on my experience that signs would occur with in 1 –5 days post-ingestion.

Depending on how long it has been, if you are worried, see your veterinarian for blood testing in order to evaluate the kidneys.

An article that might be helpful to you is on our Petplace.com is Kidney Failure in Dogs.

Best of luck!
