Background: It is known that large dogs who are fed lamb and rice diets are at increased risk to develop taurine-deficiency-induced dilated cardiomyopathy.

Taurine is an amino-sulfonic acid that is required in the diet of cats. Although cats can synthesize a limited amount of taurine from cystine, they require dietary taurine to maintain a variety of important metabolic functions. Without adequate dietary supplementation, the amount of taurine lost in ...

Abstract

Although taurine is not dietarily essential for dogs, taurine deficiency and dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) are sporadically reported in large-breed dogs. Taurine status and husbandry were examined in 216 privately owned Newfoundlands, a giant dog breed with high incidence of idiopathic DCM...
