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...

Abstract

Introduction: Golden retrievers are over-represented in cases of taurine-deficient dilated cardiomyopathy and recently a surge in cases has prompted further investigation. Objective: To describe the clinical, dietary, and echocardiographic features in golden retrievers diagnosed with taurine ...

Abstract

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

Taurine deficiency is considered as a potential cause of recent cases of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in dogs in the United States. On July 12, the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) commented on reports of DCM in dogs. The dogs were fed grain-free diet, rich in peas, lentils, other legumes, or...

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; ...

Abstract

Introduction: Canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) can result from numerous etiologies including genetic mutations, infections, toxins, and nutritional imbalances. This study sought to characterize differences in echocardiographic findings between dogs with DCM fed grain-free (GF) diets and...

Abstract

Objectives: Taurine plays an important role in maintaining myocardial function. Irish wolfhound dogs (IW) are at risk for dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), but a relationship between whole blood taurine (WBT) deficiency and DCM has not been established. Our aim was to determine prevalence of WBT ...

Abstract

Low circulating taurine concentrations may be a risk factor for dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in dogs. Circulating taurine is typically measured in the clinic 4-5 h after feeding, largely because the impact of later sampling is not known. The objective of this study was to measure taurine in the...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the macronutrients composition, fatty acid and amino acid profiles, and essential minerals content of all vegan foods for dogs and cats available in the Brazilian market, and to compare results with FEDIAF (2019) and AAFCO (2019) recommendations. Four...

Abstract

Taurine is an aminoacid that performs various physiological functions: the formation of bile acids, the regulation of cell volume, the intracellular elimination of carbonyl groups. It is present in various organs, in particular at the level of the heart, retina and leukocytes. Some animals, such as ...
