One of our cats became ill due to the recall. We caught it early and eventually all was well. We changed the food from Hills (wet) to normal store brand (wet) Meow Mix and continued with Dry 9 lives. The "new" wet didn't have the recalled ingredient so we thought we were being safe.
One of our (other) older (11 years) cat began eating, drinking and peeing way more then normal. we brought her to the vets and found out she was diabetic. A normal count is 180? I think they said. My cat was 620.
I'm telling you this because I was told a food change in older animals can cause problems. (All due to the recall) We now have diabetic food and need 2 insulin injections a day. If it were not for the recall this wouldn't have happened at least not yet.
