The FDA’s investigation into peas, lentils & potatoes

What the FDA said

The FDA first alerted the public about this investigation in July 2018 and provided an update in February 2019. Since then, the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) has been collaborating with a wide range of stakeholders to evaluate information about the DCM cases and the diets of those pets.

To date, the FDA has not established why certain diets may be associated with the development of DCM in some dogs. 

We are finding that there is a disparity between what the FDA is saying and what concerned pet owners are hearing from the news, social media or other outlets. This page is intended to be your go-to place to help read between the lines, understand the nuance, and learn about the issues. Just like in our stores, our goal is to give you the tools to be successful when it comes to the health of your pet.

We have been dedicated to healthier pets since 1993. We have your back.
