You may want to check the dog food in your pantry.

The FDA is alerting pet owners about a heart condition that can develop in dogs eating certain pet food containing peas, lentils, or potatoes.

The disease known as canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) could cause congestive heart failure.

Some symptoms include lower energy, cough, and difficulty breathing.

Pet owners are encouraged to report cases of DCM in dogs if they believe it was linked to their diet.
