We all want to feed our pets the best food for their well-being, but lately it has become difficult to know exactly what that means. There are so many choices on the shelf, and a multitude of ads advising us to choose “natural” or “grain free.” These diets are presented as the obvious and best choice for dogs because, after all, dogs are carnivores and wouldn’t choose to eat grain in the wild, right? Unfortunately, it seems that these specialty or boutique diets are falling short in providing the best nutrition for dogs, despite their ofttimes hefty price tag.
According to a recent study done by the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, feeding grain-free diets may be partially responsible for the increase in DCM, or dilated cardiomyopathy, in dogs. The link to this well-written and informative article is included below. It is well worth reading!
