JUNE 5, 2018 – this Tufts article is a must read if you have a dog.  Please share:

A broken heart: Risk of heart disease in boutique or grain-free diets and exotic ingredients

 

ATTENTION – all Golden Owners!  Please please please – read the labels of whatever dog food you are feeding!  Expensive foods do NOT mean they are better foods.  The ratings by the Dog Food Advisor are NOT reliable.  Here is an article of what is being discovered and researched about dog foods:

Researchers getting closer to understanding dietary taurine and heart disease in dogs

 

If you own an Aubridge Golden, and have ANY questions about the food you are feeding, PLEASE email me!

Here is some information about the study:

 

PLEASE also note:   dog food companies can change their formulas – and it may take time for the new labels to come out. I really want to encourage people to take their own time to do a little research on the dog food they choose to feed. I know we all are waiting for Dr. Joshua Stern’s publication – and it is moving along in its process…. Let’s be clear however, he has not and will not recommend or not recommend any dog foods- for very good reason! You will find that just because a dog food has peas – it may be suspect – but it may be okay. For instance, maybe it has taurine added to it – to boost the lack of meat based protein, None of this is simple – and I am certainly not a nutritionist – nor a DVM.  People are choosing to feed fancy dog foods – that resemble foods that we are people eat. Dogs are not people. Dogs needs are different than people. And, it is incumbent for reputable dog food companies to not only follow the AAFCO guidelines, but to also actually test the dog foods. Those foods which owners have fed only to find their dogs with low taurine, taurine-deficient DCM, or even CHF- most probably: do not have enough meat-based protein, and probably also have not had adequate testing to indicate that any potential resulting taurine deficiency has been addressed- i.e. taurine has been added to their dog food. Maybe the addition of legumes with fiber also affect digestibility and the conversion into taurine. The bigger dog food companies that have been around a long time actually have tested and continue to test their dog foods. Unfortunately, the smaller newer dog food companies seem to do better marketing of their foods -like suggesting that dogs will love pomegranates. And, many people for whatever reason, are suspect of the big dog food companies -and within there lies most of the problems…..Let me state for the record – there are three foods that I recommend and feed:    Eukanuba active performance 28/18  (It is 28 percent protein and 18 percent fat – the perfect combination for a normally active Golden; Purina pro plan (combining the Sport 30/20 and the Salmon sensitive stomach 26/16 – which gets to the 28/18, and finally Royal Canin Golden Retriever adult – for less active Goldens, and Royal Canin medium puppy and medium adult formulas.
