Gluten-free diets are going to the dogs: So-called "grain-free" dog foods have become popular these days, but the diets may not be good for some pooches' hearts.

 

Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it is investigating a link between grain-free dog foods — which have ingredients such as sweet potatoes, peas and lentils — and canine heart disease.

 

Grain-free dog foods are marketed as being closer to dogs' "ancestral" diets, according to The New York Times. But some veterinarians have reported a link between these foods and a type of canine heart disease called dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), in which the heart becomes enlarged and doesn't pump blood properly.

There are many dog owners here, just thought I would throw this out there.

Soon they won't vaccinate their dogs against rabies either.


If you are going to debate me on this bulletin board,

start with this premise..

You win.  And I don't care.

This is why anyone who thinks dogs are better than people are retards.  They drink out of the toilet, lick theirs and others ######, eat their own ######. 

 

I don't know who these people hang out with but most everyone I know is better than that.

So hating dogs is the new trend for the week here I see. Surprised at HT, a man and his dog is one one of the main old timey manly institutions on manliness. Is the approval of Drobeski (he is a known animal hater) that important?

Had three dogs. Just over it, hate how everyone spoils them. I encountered an older lady walking some sort of pit bull this morning at work. She couldn't wait to tell me it was a "rescue". GFY granny.

People who dress up their dogs like humans and/or enter them in dog shows - should be punched in the face.

switched our dogs to grain free about 3 or 4 years ago because the ###### sold in regular stores was bad for them.  Cured my dog of his awful dog smell (overpowering wet dog smell).

 

So what the f#ck are we supposed to feed them now?
