The Dog Food Causing Heart Disease EXPOSED (New Grain Free Update) – Dog Health Vet Advice

If your dog is eating a grain free diet, if their diet contains lentils, peas, potato or even sweet potato, then you might have heard about the June 2019 FDA update on the situation with grain free diets causing heart failure in dogs. If your dog is eating dog food with any of these main ingredients, you definitely need to watch the whole of this video!

The FDA has been investigating cases that have had an extensive workup, either by a veterinarian or a veterinary cardiologist, and who have been diagnosed specifically with dilated cardiomyopathy. This means that the likelihood is that the reports that have been received are really the tip of the iceberg. There’s actually likely to be a lot more dogs affected.

    We feed our dogs grain free but we also give them “human” food constantly and supplement with wet food that isn’t grain free. I guess we should be good! They’re extremely healthy (our greyhound does have a heart disease but this was before we changed to grain free).

    Thanks for the update. My dog has peas and potato in their food. She does appear to have a negative response to grain so I’m going to have to find a grain free food that doesn’t have potatoes or peas in it. Though I read on another site that grains can be OK as long as they’ve been heated properly beforehand so the dog’s digestive system can absorb the nutrients. Off to try some different brands!

    Hi there I don’t feed grain free diet.
    But I do add sweat potatoes and pees to my dogs dinner which is usually boiled chicken with Wayne writes kibble.
    Would the pees and sweat potatoes still be a cause for concern fed in this way???

    It’s always do this do that! I don’t think they know what they’re talking about anymore. If your animal is healthy likes the food and regular vet check up. Don’t get caught up in all the uncertainty. Animals get the same diseases as humans. Take care of them, love them and that’s it!!

    my head is spinning. PLEASE suggest safe options, other than raw (cost/time) – for my boy. PLEASE!

    instead of telling people to talk to their vet about what their dog should eat can u let us know real life foods from earth that dogs can eat that will give them good nutrition and cause as little harm as possible. my dog isn’t enjoying its dog food anymore and i feel like she shouldn’t even be eating it because in he wild there is no way she would be eating that shit

    My 7 year old Samoyed male, previously very active and healthy became increasingly lethargic over several months. After 2 vet visits he was diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy. The vet told us to immediately stop feeding Orijen to him and our 9 year old Samoyed female. They are now eating Royal Canin dog food and my boy is taking various heart meds. Very upsetting. I don’t believe the grain free canine food manufacturers were aware of the risks when they created their food lines, but they are now in denial which comes off as Tobacco industry execs denying the risks of smoking. I wish I had known about this a year ago when the reports first started surfacing – my boy would have had a better chance. It’s all very distressing and we are hoping for a recovery but the vet said it is uncertain.

    I used to feed taste of the wild and changed to canagan. What to feed now?

    I’m gonna keep grains in mines diet..the peas and potato seem very low on the list ( brand i buy)and give some regular chicken and other safe human food on the side perhaps..unless i feel i find something better

    The problem is all these articles tell me to switch my dogs food which I want to but they don’t say what I should change to. She’s currently eating acana which I now know is not good. What brands make high quality healthy dog food that don’t have these issues?

  11. Liam Butler on December 29, 2019 at 10:02 am

    I agree with the potential problems caused by potatoes, lentils, and peas. But I’m wary of this FDA report as a whole as it seems to make general, blanket statements conditioning pet owners to veer away from grain free pet food. That’s because it named these 16 known grain free dogfood brands despite the lack of scientific proof of the correlation between DCM and pet diet. That listing just doesn’t make sense, as it will naturally lead many to worry, likely switch from grain free, and effectively condemn the said brands. Right now, to avoid being misled, I’m sticking to grain free, as any preemptive argument to change diets (like your own, toward the end of this video) only makes people actually panic, and needlessly at that. I’d stick to the facts and question the FDA report’s inconsistencies.
