This article puts into context a proper understanding the FDA warning. Please note that the FDA’s headline did not say anything about “grain-free diets” causing heart problems – though almost all the blog posts and articles in other publications have been saying exactly that. If you read the FDA’s statement, you will see that they said there may be a link between some grain-free diets and canine DCM, but there are also many other things going on that may be responsible for an observed rise in cases of canine DCM.
Please Don't Panic About the “Grain-Free Thing” Are grain-free dog foods good or bad for your dog?
