FDA Investigating Potential Connection Between Diet and Cases of Canine Heart Dis
This is a pretty big deal. I've been keeping an eye on this information for about a month or so now after the first study came out. I'm glad the FDA is now involved.
I've always been a believer in the grain-free higher protein etc etc diets. I've fed Acana for years with good luck but have been annoyed with a lot of changes in the past few years. The pet food industry in general seems to be using an ABUNDANCE of legumes- peas, pea protein, beans, lentils, etc etc. It's always made me annoyed because I know these things are upping protein vs. the protein coming from the meat. Well, turns out, there may in fact be an actual problem with this. Read the FDA alert...

Does seem they are taking advantage of dogs as they decrease quality protein - probably for the $$!
