    More news on grain free dog food.

    New studies say grain free dog food has been linked to heart failure in dogs. An FDA investigation sparked in light of these findings.

    Grain free dog food has become a popular trend for pet owners. But new research says it might not be as healthy as some originally thought
    Grain Free food contains peas, lentils, legume seeds or potatoes, instead of typical grain and corn.
    Professionals say that they have seen a rise in canine dilated cardiomyopathy, which is just another name for a dog heart disease, in dogs eating this type of food.

    Symptoms include fatigue, coughing and trouble breathing in dogs.
    Associate Veterinarian at Missouri Valley Vet, Dr. Crystal Scott says, "The good news it does seem to be reversible, you add taurine into the food and it reverses. They haven't been able to link specific grain free foods to the dilated cardiomyopathy so its still in the early stages at this point."
    The FDA has not correlated any specific brands yet or told people what exactly to do.
    Large breed dogs, such as Great Danes, Boxers, Saint Bernards are more frequently affected by heart disease as well.

    My dog ate half a pepperoni pizza off the counter this weekend for the 3rd time. Little bastard. Hard to discipline when you don’t catch them. He must have iron guts becaus he’s never gotten sick or pooped weird. He gets Purina pro plan lamb and rice. The only thing I’ve noticed is he has very watery eyes/eye boogers. Not sure if it’s excessive or not and he doesn’t seem irritated but I’m gonna talk to the vet about it

    We switched to taste of the wild food a couple years ago and the dogs seem to eat less and crap less and all seem healthy. Growing up on the farm the dogs ate the cheapest stuff we could buy and they seemed to live plenty long as long as they didn’t get run over first.

    Lately I’ve been taking all of my deer trimmings, scrap meat, between the rib meat, heart, liver, whatever I’m not going to eat and grinding it up and dehydrating it like jerky and giving it to the dogs as treats. It stinks the hell out of the garage, I think that’s the venison fat and ground liver but the dogs go insane over it and they haven’t gotten sick or nasty dog farts from it yet and I get to feel like I’m not being wasteful. Off of two deer I got 9 gallon bags of jerky.

    I use taste of the wild mixed with Beneful healthy weight, 50/50. I dont limit my dogs access to food at all and they stay thin and healthy. Also helps I think that I didnt get my male dog fixed, that tends to make them lazy and fat.

    Feed our dogs Nutro and wild game scraps. Besides the occasional bout of swamp ass from my lab after a few days in the slough, no major issues.

    I switched from Purina Pro Plan to Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover. 100% natural ingredients, grain-free, with meats such as turkey, duck, and fish. Higher protein levels and absolutely no chemicals. Only $3-4 more than Pro Plan per 30lb bag.

    Dog has been on Chicken Soup for 6yrs now. I buy it at Menards or the Gold Label Feeds on E. Broadway.

    This website was suggested by our vet to show what ingredients actually go in the food. It is a good way to compare the foods and then prices. It gives the food a nutritional rating as well.

    Purina has some of the lowest ratings you'll find.
