BREAKING NEWS

The FDA says dog heart disease linked to some vegetable based dog foods
July 13, 2018



(NATIONAL) – The Food and Drug Administration warned Thursday that dogs fed food that is based on peas, lentils or potatoes are developing an unusual condition that can cause an enlarged heart.

NBC News said the heart condition is called canine dilated cardiomyopathy. It is more common in certain breeds, but now it is turning up in breeds that are not usually susceptible, the FDA said.

The FDA has not named brands of dog food but the agency says the affected dogs appear to have been fed certain types of pet foods that feature plant based items as their main ingredients and are sometimes labeled as “grain free” dog food products.

In a statement the FDA said it is investigating the potential link between DCM and these foods and, “We encourage pet owners and veterinarians to report DCM cases in dogs who are not predisposed to the disease.”

Symptoms of the heart ailment in dogs include lethargy, weight loss and sometimes, a cough. Some breeds – including great Danes, Newfoundlands, boxers, Doberman pinschers and St. Bernards – have a genetic predisposition to the heart condition, however, the cases that have been reported to the FDA have included golden and Labrador retrievers, whippets, a Shih Tzu, a bulldog and miniature schnauzers, as well as mixed breeds.

The FDA says dogs with the disease develop an enlarged heart, which then struggles to function properly.
