    According to the FDA, there is the possibility that certain grain-free diets may contribute to the development of heart disease in some dogs, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that all dogs eating grain-free food will get sick from it.

    Here is the link to an article I shared in a different thread a while back...

    If your pup likes the American Journey food and is doing well on it, then I don’t see any harm in keeping him on it.

    As far as if it’s “better” to feed a food with grains vs. a grain-free formula? It really depends on the dog. Some truly need a grain-free formula due to sensitivities or allergies, while other dogs seem to tolerate formulas that contain grains better. It’s all about finding a food that works for you!
