Hi Max!
Wed Mar 20, 2019 1:46pm

We just got an email from our vet about the same subject, DCM. Willow had her annual appointment yesterday and we had her tested and she shows no problems. She was on grain free food for about a year and I recently changed her to Purina Pro Plan.

I have a huge bag of very expensive dog food that is grain free. I don't even know what to do with it.

        so that the change-over wouldn't be sudden. Max is currently getting about half and half, but will be altogether on the ProPaln by next month, according to the vet's instructions.

      The DCM issue is something good to keep on our radars. At this time, I don't think we're really sure of the hows or whys, so watching is a good thing. I'm hoping there are more studies by now,... more

        That's one of the things I like about my new vet. She didn't knee-jerk to antibiotics. She switched up his food and put him on a combination of probiotics and pumpkin. My former vet retired to the SW ... more
