Abstract

Introduction: A surge in Food and Drug Administration (FDA) consumer complaints identified concerns that legume-rich, grain-free diets were associated with nutritionally-mediated dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Golden retrievers represent the most reported breed affected by this condition and...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether blood taurine concentrations in dogs with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) were lower than the reference interval (200 to 350 nmol/mL) or the cutoff used to indicate taurine deficiency (< 150 nmol/mL). ANIMALS: 18 dogs with clinical or presumptive subclinical EPI with residual blood...

Abstract

Since a few years, a lot of cases of canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) were reported as possibly linked to specific kinds of pet foods: "no grain" foods, or foods rich in legumes like peas and lentils. Those cases seem different to the previous food- associated DCM cases that had been described...

Abstract

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. Since dogs obligatorily conjugate bile acids (BA) with taurine, we determined whether rice bran (RB) or other fibers (cellulose; CL, beet pulp; ...
