We'd like to address recent inquiries regarding the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) investigation into certain pet foods and a potential link to heart disease.
Unfortunately, a concrete cause has not yet been established because the potential association between diet and heart disease is complex and likely involves numerous factors.
We've found the information on the FDA's website to be a good resource for concerned pet owners. You can learn about the specific brands, protein sources, and breeds of pet named in the FDA's investigation here. You can find additional information in their Q&A.
The doctors at Millburn Vet recommend diets they know have been researched by veterinary nutritionists, including Royal Canin, Hill’s Science Diet, Hill's Prescription Diet, Purina, and Iams/Eukanuba.
If you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call. We're keeping up to date with the latest FDA recommendations in order to continue providing your furry family members with the best care possible.
