Is there a link between grain free diets and dilated cardiomyopathy?
This scare was first rumoured in the USA, where some bloodlines of Golden Retrievers have a predisposition to DCM (dilated cardiomyopathy). This scaremongering by the big 5 companies who were afraid of competition exaggerated this rumour. They also financed research into this and after several years of work, the study came to no conclusions.
We believe one of the reasons is poor quality food with a high legume/low meat/fish content often found in USA where their pet food manufacturing regulations are not as rigid as in the UK. Taurine is contained naturally in meat and fish and as our food contains at least 50% high quality meat or fish ingredients, we are confident there is no risk of DCM associated with our food.
Taurine is an amino acid that is considered to be non-essential in dogs. Dogs can naturally produce Taurine if fed a complete and balanced dog food.
Taurine in dogs is found in high levels within the heart, the retina of the eye, and the brain. If taurine levels are too low (taurine deficiency), these organs and body systems can develop disease.
Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a heart condition where the muscle walls become too thin and the chambers of the heart become too large. If these changes can’t be reversed, DCM will sadly lead to heart failure and death as the heart has to work harder and harder to pump blood around the body.
