Pet lovers take note!

Pets at Home is recalling its supplies of AVA dry cat food after three cats have became ill after consuming it.

The pets “exhibited symptoms of sudden collapse, fitting, widespread twitching and general unsteadiness”, after eating the biscuits from their range aimed at senior and neutered cats.

The level of thiamine (vitamin B1) in the cat food listed was much lower than the recipe specified.

Pets at Home is offering customers a full refund.

“An investigation has revealed that, in the four affected products, the level of thiamine (vitamin B1) was much lower than we had specified,”

The product being recalled is dried food or “kibble” designed for older cats and neutered cats kept indoors. The rest of the AVA range was safe to use, the company said. The AVA range is manufactured in the UK and sold exclusively at Pets at Home.

The three cats identified are all stable and recovering.

The company advised customers to dispose of the contents and return the packaging to Pets at Home stores for a refund.
