Dogs and the Grain-Free Diet

A Recent FDA Report Suggest a Link Between Grain-Free Diets and the Development of Heart Disease in Dogs

There has been a lot of media attention regarding the recent FDA report that suggests a link between grain-free diets and the development of heart disease in dogs. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the food you are feeding your pet, as always, we recommend a conversation with your veterinarian to gain their advice as part of a regular check-up or other visit to your pet hospital. Our veterinarians are here to help guide you on the nutritional options available and recommend those best suited for your pet.
