There may be a link between grain-free dog foods and heart disease in dogs.

What we know:
  • Since July of 2018 the FDA has been investigating a potential link between grain-free dog foods and an increase in canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM).
  • DCM happens when the chambers of the heart are enlarged causing it to have less pressure to pump blood through the body.
  • DCM is harmful at best, and fatal at worst.
  • DCM is most common in larger breeds, but has been found in others that aren’t genetically predisposed.
