Civilized Pet Tip: The pet food industry is a multi-billion dollar business; everyone wants their share. Many companies market trends in human diet that you may assume apply to your pets. This is often not wise. For example, grain free diets have now been associated with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in dogs and cats. To see the list of pet foods associated with DCM, click here. Talk about your pet’s individual nutritional needs with your veterinarian. Don’t believe what a pet store clerk promotes as what is best for your dog. Pet food recalls happen, but less often with the brands your veterinarian will recommend. To read more about the dangers of raw pet food, click here. For the latest news on pet food recalls, please click here. Learn more about pet food standards and safety here. We believe in feeding pets quality food from companies with long established reputations. Quality food is love. Individual dogs have individual dietary tolerance or sensitivities. Introduce new foods gradually because novel proteins can upset tummies. Make informed Civilized Choices for your pet.
