If you are concerned about heart disease in your pets and grain-free pet foods using non-standard proteins, you will not want to miss this show.
In this episode of The Woof Meow Show from August 10th, 2019 Kate and Don speak with canine nutritionist Linda Case, author of Dog Food Logic. Our topic is the June 29th, 2019 press release from the FDA addressing their current investigation into a reported increase in cases of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in dogs and an alleged connection to what a few veterinarians are calling ‘BEG’ (Boutique, Exotic ingredient, Grain-free) pet foods. We will discuss:
- Is there a proven correlation between DCM and ‘BEG’ foods?
- Has the investigation by the FDA been designed to meet the criteria for peer-reviewed scientific research?
- Has the FDA withheld information on some of the foods fed to dogs reported with DCM?
- Big pet food and how a few companies control what we feed our pets.
