Is Dog Food KILLING Your Dog?! (SHOCKING)
It’s one thing when a human being makes poor health choices. It’s your choice, and you know the consequences.
But our pets are a different story.
They don’t have a choice about what you put in their food bowl.
And that means that YOU need to know what’s good for them… and what’s not.
But according to a recent study, 16 of the most popular dog foods brands are putting your best friend’s life in danger.
Here’s how to keep them safe.
A dog’s diet has changed just as much as human being’s diet over the years… maybe even more so.
Humans used to be hunters and gatherers – living on food caught or grown in the wild.
Dogs used to be the same way – hunting, killing, and eating their food.
Now we stuff our faces with processed junk we call “food” – and then wonder why we’re facing an epidemic of diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer.
Unfortunately, by feeding our dogs processed food that’s manufactured at a plant, loaded with preservatives, and then packaged in bags is just as bad for our four–legged friends as it is for us.
(The only difference is that your dog doesn’t have a choice.)
Over a five-year period, the FDA received hundreds of reports of canine dilated cardiomyopathy, a condition that can lead to heart failure. And while some cases were determined to be genetic, the vast majority were found to be related to what the dogs were eating.
Here are the brands from the study that were tied to heart disease, listed in order of worst to least:
- Taste of the Wild
- Earthborn Holistic
- Blue Buffalo
- Nature’s Domain
- California Natural
- Natural Balance
- Nature’s Variety
- And Rachael Ray Nutrish.
You may have noticed that some of the brands on this list market themselves as the healthiest foods for dogs.
So what’s a dog owner to do?
Feeding your dog raw meat, bones, raw eggs and the like can be beneficial – but it also comes with risks like bacterial contamination and an unbalanced diet.
Unfortunately, there are no easy answers here.
At the very least, I recommend putting as much thought and research into what you’re feeding Fido as you do for what you’re feeding yourself.
Then make the best choice based on the information in front of you. That’s really all any of us can do.
In the meantime, the best thing you can do for your four–legged friends is to give them lots of love and exercise – and watch out for signs of heart disease.
Symptoms of canine cardio dilated cardiomyopathy include decreased energy, difficulty breathing, coughing, and collapsing (not all that different from a heart problem in a human!). If you notice these symptoms, take your dog to the vet right away.
