About the FDA's Pet Food Warnings
As many of you are aware, the FDA has released a statement suggesting a link between cardiac disease and some popular commercial pet foods. This link is suggestive. These pet foods will not cause heart disease in all pets. The cause of the heart disease from feeding these foods is not currently known, and further research will continue to determine why this is occurring. All of that said, there is a clear link between canine heart disease and these diets.
Veterinary nutritionists have determined that B.E.G. diets are at greater risk of causing heart disease than other commercial diets. Boutique, exotic, and gourmet diets, like many on the FDA list, have been linked to an increase heart disease in dogs. It is suspected that ingredients like legumes (peas, beans), potatoes, and exotic meat proteins are lacking certain nutrients critical for heart health.
