I’d like you to reconsider the foods listed on the “Best Foods for Dogs with Allergies” page.
The FDA has potentially linked grain free foods that have legumes as one of the top 10 ingredients to heart disease in dogs. https://www.fda.gov/animal-veterinary/outbreaks-and-advisories/fda-investigation-potential-link-between-certain-diets-and-canine-dilated-cardiomyopathy?fbclid=IwAR3xd-Yu2m5C4TkUViEPG3Z5qYEKpJazOOVcS9ph-Z6jrImWORQTC4c0pmA
My dog is a pit mix, has severe allergies, has been on grain free food all her life, and now has heart disease and has experienced congestive heart failure. She has switched to hydrolyzed dog food, is taking 12 pills a day, and may be ok/improve as long as her diet DOES NOT include significant quantities of legumes.
3 of your 5 top 5 include legumes as one of the top 5 ingredients, but there are other options, including grain free without legumes, hydrolyzed dog food, etc.
Thanks for considering!crazy4catsParticipant
Wow! I’m sorry to hear about your pup. I’m so glad you posted this here. It’s important for dog owners to be aware of the correlation between grain free boutique type foods and DCM.
How is she doing? Any improvement?
