Introductions / Grain Free Concerns
« on: May 03, 2019, 12:09 »

I did a lot of research over many weeks to improve my dogs diet as he had previously been on a very low scoring Science Diet kibble.

He has been switched to Tribal TLC which is a grain free diet in an effort to help his arthritis as my research had found that grains can create inflammation in the joints.

Basil has been on the TLC food for about 6 weeks and it totally agrees with him BUT i've recently read concerning news regarding a grain free diet leading to heart disease canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM)  and am now worried that I haven't done the right thing by him.

This research had been led in the US so there isn't much information around on UK based research I just wondered if anyone else had done their own research and able to share any conclusions?

Thanks so much

We're from Buckinghamshire and Basil is 12, he's been fed on Hills JD light for many years due to early onset arthritis and I thought he was on the best we could give him for his needs as it was recommended by our vet.

However, recently I've become more aware of feeding options and feel that this is probably not the best option for his diet but have no idea where to start as I want to ensure he is still getting all of the support that he needs for his arthritis too.

Looking forward to reading through and hopefully getting some advice from people who have a lot more knowledge that me :)
