We've had two friends who have had to put their dogs down in the last few weeks, so this is a matter that needs to be taken seriously.

We later found out that they were eating Hill's Pet Nutrition dog food, which is being recalled because of excessive amounts of vitamin D.

It's doubtful that this is a coincidence, so here's the list of recalled cans:
