A reminder that the FDA did not link 16 brands of dog food to canine heart disease.
“The common thread appears to be legumes, pulses (seeds of legumes), and/or potatoes as main ingredients in the food,” the FDA says (click for source https://www.fda.gov/animal-veterinary/animal-health-literacy/questions-answers-fda-center-veterinary-medicines-investigation-possible-connection-between-diet-and).
There were many brands listed in the FDA report, but as the FDA says it is the INGREDIENTS that are suspected and not any specific brands. Brands usually make many varieties.
For those pet owners that would like to switch to a food without peas, legumes, and/or potatoes until more investigation is done, I am maintaining a list of dog foods without peas, legumes, potatoes, corn, wheat, soy or byproducts here. https://www.seviernewsmessenger.com/2019/07/14/best-dog-food-without-peas-legumes-potatoes/
I am maintaining a list of dog foods without peas, legumes, potatoes, corn, wheat, soy or byproducts. There are a few puppy foods. https://www.seviernewsmessenger.com/2019/07/14/best-dog-food-without-peas-legumes-potatoes/July 18, 2019 at 5:49 pm in reply to: Grain free without peas/lentils/pea-flour/chickpeas/etc #143486 Report Abuse
I am maintaining a list of dry dog foods without peas, legumes, potatoes, corn, wheat or byproducts. If you know any that should be added to the list, let me know. https://www.seviernewsmessenger.com/2019/07/14/best-dog-food-without-peas-legumes-potatoes/
I think the most important thing about the FDA announcement is that the common thread appears to be foods with legumes, pulses (seeds of legumes), and/or potatoes as main ingredients in the food. NOT the brand. So consider that when you are choosing a food. I usually depend upon dogfoodadvisor to help me choose a food, and I read they are currently updating the website in light of the FDA announcement. Until then, I have made a list of foods without those ingredients in an article for my local news website. https://www.seviernewsmessenger.com/2019/07/14/best-dog-food-without-peas-legumes-potatoes/
