The FDA warns certain brands of dog food may lead to an enlarged heart in man's best friend.
The FDA is not naming specific brands, but says food high in vegetable content appears to be the problem.
Dog food rich in peas, lentils or other legumes or potatoes may lead to canine heart disease. Symptoms include unusual fatigue and weight loss.
Doctors say medication can be used to treat the heart condition.
