    Has there been a clear link between the lack of grain and the DCM?

    I fed my guy Blue Buffalo grain free puppy, now he is on Blue Wilderness Red meat. When this story first came out BB wasn't listed, now it is. Has me pretty worried as he has been eating it for over a year now.

    Not sure what I should be feeding him as the info seems unclear

    Definitely not clear, but I chose to err on the safe side: switched ours poochies to Royal Canin breed specific diets. It's entirely possible that it turns our to be something out of left field. e.g. Chinese melamine , but I couldn't just wait and see. Grain free always seemed little hinky any ways, unless a grain specific allergy/reaction was involved.

    Funny this comes up as I just had my two at the vet today and she asked what they ate. I said, I donít know, something grain free. She winced and said they donít recommend grain free because of heart disease. I looked up the auto order on Amazon and we realized their food had rice. In the clear I guess.

    That is what has me about all this, its almost like the study suggests buying the cheapest food out there with plenty of wheat fillers.

    It suggests a link to low taurine levels, but also makes the link that the foods are all grain free and have legumes or potatoes. So which is it?

    Correlation=/= causation.

    Either way guess i'm looking into a more raw/homecooked diet. But what should i be feeding...

    Our vet had us switch the elder dogs diet. We took him in cuz he started to breathe heavily with no expended effort & had collapsed after sprinting. We ended up seeing a specialist who did an ultrasound on his heart and ran a heart monitor on him for 24 hrs. The verdict was borderline heart disease but not definitive. She had us change diet and add taurine supplements too. The hope was it might reverse or slow any damage happening to his heart. We did the taurine for 6mos but didnít see any effect so stopped that supplementation. The food is still changed. He is def in old dog mode now. Ok for 10yo, but still seemingly early to be slowing down so much. He doesnít jump on the bed anymore without a ton of encouragement which is sad for us ...evening snuggles not a thing anymore

    Well, maybe I spoke too soon based on the other thread: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/dog-foo...investigation/

    I was feeding Nutro, but not one of the grain free/peas/lentils formulas like was specified in the article.

    I wonder if itís due more to a population bias. I.e. people who care about their dog and have more money spend on food might also be more apt to report to the FDA. Vs the troves of people who buy Iams because itís the cheapest and have never once read the label nor cared to read the label.

    Also these are just reports and not a study with controls so itís not going to change my food selection.

    Dog stairs or ramps will help with that.
