Is BHA Bad For Dogs?

Did you know that Acai berries can help relieve your dog’s diarrhea and other gastrointestinal issues? Acai berries are high in antioxidants, which can help reduce the risk of cancer and other ailments. The tiny berries have a high concentration of fiber and protein, plus essential fatty acids like omega 3 and arginine. Many people use Acai treats for their dogs as a way to control their cholesterol, as it is very low in fats and cholesterol. However, there are questions surrounding whether Acai treats are safe, particularly if they contain “pseudo-ervatives” like BHA.

Most natural dog foods do not contain BHA. It is doubtful that even the highest quality commercial brands include BHA because they do not use the correct preservative process. The preservatives used in making commercial pet foods can be harmful to humans, as well as to our dogs. In fact, the preservatives commonly used are unnecessary. Even with proper cleaning and a good sanitary process, chemicals like BHA can still enter the dog food.

Is BHA bad for dogs? This is a frequent question, especially among dog owners who have been told that these treats can help reduce hyperactivity, fatigue and bad gas in dogs. Although commercial dog foods may contain some amount of BHA, it is unlikely to be dangerous, especially when compared with chemical preservatives like BHA. Although BHA can sometimes provide a slight relief of symptoms, it is likely that the disorder would be even worse without it. Therefore, treating bad gas or hyperactivity with Acai berry treats is not necessarily dangerous.

Two of the most common preservatives used in commercial dog treats are butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and ethoxyquinone (elaeran violet). Unfortunately, these two preservatives can cause a wide range of health problems in dogs. A common problem is that dogs develop kidney and liver disease as a result of taking BHA or Erythromycin. In addition, the BHA can affect growth and development of the brain and heart.

Another problem is that butylated hydroxytoluene can also lead to cancer, particularly in dogs that are already prone to kidney and liver disease. Studies in lab animals have also shown that artificial preservatives like BHA and ethoxyquinone can damage cellular DNA. While this DNA damage is not enough to make a dog develop cancer, it is enough to make the cells become more susceptible to cancer, and even make the cancer itself more likely.

To sum things up, we do not know what the long term effects of BHA or other artificial preservatives in commercial foods are. It is probably safe to say that most commercially prepared dog foods contain at least some amount of BHA, although the amounts may vary depending on the type of food and the condition of your dog. But, if your dog has kidney or liver disease, you should avoid all commercially prepared foods. If you are unsure about what to feed your dog, consult with a veterinarian. Most veterinarians can also give you advice about the best brands of foods that are known to be good for dogs with certain conditions.
