Grain-free Diets Raising Concern
Last week, a report came out on NBC following a warning from the FDA on grain-free diets. This report lists cases of cardiomyopathy (a serious heart condition) that have been linked to specific grain-free diets, and Zignature diets are on that list (68 cases so far in dogs that have been fed Zignature diets). With that in mind, we have removed all Zignature diets from our shelves and will no longer sell them. If your dog has been eating any grain-free diet exclusively (or as the large majority of its diet) and you are concerned about the possibility of cardiomyopathy, you may consider having a cardiac ultrasound performed.
