First, we want to reassure you that we are ON IT. We have been researching the FDA's findings while talking to veterinarians and nutritionists, as well as asking our food manufacturers for more information.
Pet Evolution has worked diligently to work through the confusion. And, we have found that there is a lot of it!
There was suspicion that "grain-free" foods could be causing this, however that direct connection was determined to be unfounded.
We have read the report from the FDA data collection in regards to dogs developing Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM).
Here are a few highlights:
The FDA has determined there is no correlation between grain free foods and canine DCM.
Because the FDA has received reports of DCM in pets that have eaten grain-free diets and also reports from pets who have eaten grain-based diets, the FDA has advised that these cases can not be explained simply by whether or not the pet's food contains grains, or by brand or manufacturer.
The FDA does not advise dietary changes for your pet.
At Pet Evolution we stand by the products we sell. We were touched to see our amazing customers doing the same. We recently asked our Facebook followers to post how food bought at Pet Evolution has benefited your pet. Many of you responded with positive comments on grain-free brands and posted pictures of your happy and healthy pets (Please note: Pet Evolution sells BOTH grain and grain-free foods).
