Canine DCM and food

Postby bhennessy » Fri Jul 13, 2018 9:15 pm

At the risk of reigniting the great food wars, Newsweek reports that the FDA has identified a possible link between an enlarged heart condition in dogs called canine dialated cardimyopathy and food containing peas, lentils or other legumes, or potatoes. Don’t know what I’d do with this info if proplan 30/20 had any of these ingredients, but it looks like it doesn’t. FYI I suppose.

This is real. Numoconfirmed cases reported by general practitioners checking at risk patients after the first report was published.

Pro Plan should be safe.

Very interesting,
BUT, will they check into all of the chemicals used on potatoes -- fungicides, insecticides, anti-rot, bruised spuds or good spuds -- and the list goes on.
So, is it the spuds or is it one or more chemicals used on spuds ?
