Grain free dog food problems

Recommended Posts

Haven't read the article but saw a segment on TV about this. Some "Premium Dog Foods" with vegetables as main ingredients and mostly grain free are causing heart problems.

Hmmmnnn. Och. My GSP was having coat issues so I took him to the local vet. I thought he had some sorta mite or something. Nope, no bugs at all, change the dog food she said;  get one that has zero similar ingredients to the one you are now using. I did, and that was the answer: no grain, "no chicken by products". Its salmon, peas and sweet taters and he is doing fine.  Never heard of taurine, but salmon has it.

Gotta be careful though, I got one of those newfangled primitive dog foods and he threw every once of it up.


Most types of fish are also very good sources of taurine, especially cold-water varieties such as salmon, tuna and sardines. Most cold-water fish contain between 30 and 40 milligrams of taurine per ounce of raw flesh.

Best natural source of Taurine is Sardines ---- other fish might be alright.

If you use a supplement, make sure the country of origin is either Japan or USA.

Avoid it if made in China.
