The new FDA warning about the link between “BEG” (boutique, exotic, and grain-free) diets has resulted in a lot of concerned calls and emails from our clients. This blog post summarizes the following: The origin and history of the “grain-free” movementWhy you shouldn't compare dogs and wolvesWhat the FDA warning does and does not claimWhat taurine is and why it mattersWhy this is not a conspiracy created by the big dog food companies to shut down the little dog food companiesWhat vets do and do not actually know about nutritionThe answer to "what should I feed my dog” and why there’s no one-size-fits-all
Heartworm disease is not currently endemic in our area due to our temperature fluctuations (too cool at night), however the geographical range of this disease is changing as the climate warms (see this website). It is important to consider your travel habits as well: if you take your dog to the beach, to Ashland, or to California, where heartworm is more prevalent, prevention is extremely important. Most heartworm preventatives also function as a monthly dewormer for common intestinal parasites. If you have small children at home or your pet is very social and spends a lot of time in heavily dog trafficked areas then having your dog on a monthly parasite prevention program makes sense. Given this information, many clients in Central Oregon do elect to have their pet on heartworm preventative year round.
