Concerns Regarding Grain-free and Boutique Diets

We receive many comments and questions regarding grain-free diets, and have traditionally answered with the simple, "There is absolutely no proof that grains are an issue in pet foods."  Recently the New York Post and other media outlets have released articles regarding grain-free diets and as such we have begun to receive additional questions regarding these diets. While all is still not known we thought having clients read the original article from the Nutrition Department of the Tufts University Veterinary Medical Center might be of benefit.
