Recall: Dr. King’s Natural Pet Pharmaceuticals Homeopathic Meds to Be Taken Off Shelves

Earlier this month, Rachael Ray was slapped with a whopping $5 million lawsuit related to her pet food brand, Nutrish. Now another brand is also in hot water: a variety of Natural Pet homeopathic medicines are being recalled, as reported by the Dogington Post, includes all of the homeopathic brand’s aqueous-based products due to possible microbial contamination. Yeesh!



These kinds of medications, when contaminated, can actually cause a variety of illnesses, infection, and even life-threatening conditions. King Bio—the company that manufactures Dr. King’s meds—issued the voluntary recall by notifying its distributors and customers by letter and is arranging for return and/or replacement of all recalled products. Products involved in the recall include various medications for dog and cat anxiety along with UTI control, oral health and other common feline and canine issues. You can see the full list of products recalled on King Bio’s website here.


King Bio recommends that anyone who has a potentially contaminated product to cease issue immediately and email King Bio at or call 866-298-2740 with questions or to make return arrangements for the products, which were distributed through August 24, 2018.


If you want to play it safe, skip the homeopathic meds for a second and stick to the advice your vet gives you—after all, doctor does always know best.
