The US Food and Drug Administration is warning pet owners about a possible link between certain dog food and canine heart disease. The FDA put out a statement last week, following reports of the disease in dogs eating foods that contain peas, lentils, other seeds or potatoes as the major ingredient. The FDA said these reports are strange because the cases of dogs having the disease are breeds that are not typically prone to it. Larger breeds such as Great Danes, Boxers and Newfoundlands are more prone to heart disease. Foods labeled grain-free typically have higher levels of potatoes, but it is not yet known how the ingredients are linked to the disease. The FDA is working with the Veterinary Response Network to investigate the potential association. At this time, the FDA is encouraging pet owners and vet professional to report any cases of heart disease in dogs suspected of having a link to diet.
