And another one today. Not every Hallmark needed for the study. But 10 yo mixed breed on grain free, new murmur. DCM. Owner is devastated.
What makes me so mad, none of these owners think they are doing anything wrong. They are trying very hard to do the absolute best fir their dogs. And when you see their face, when you ask what food they are feeding, whenbthe new correlation is brought up. It's heart breaking.
And I wish it was clear cut. I wish that EVERY dog on grain free got DCM(I don't but still) or no dog.
A VAST majority of dogs will NOT develop DCM on grain free/high legume diets. But for those that do...
