Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a heart condition that results in the dilation of the chambers within the heart, making it more difficult for the heart to pump and valued may leak, causing a build up of fluid within the chest and abdomen. If untreated, it will lead to congestive heart failure. In some dogs, heart function may improve with veterinary treatment and a change in diet.
There are many factors that cause DCM including genetic predisposition, and a recent suggestion of grain-free foods; however, it is important to remember that no causative link between grain-free diets and DCM has been made. DCM is more common in larger dogs than smaller dogs, with the exception of cocker spaniels which are prone to a certain form of DCM typically associated with a deficiency in taurine.
Animal protein is a rich source of taurine and the amino acids methionine and cystine (which dogs can convert to taurine). Our foods contain high levels of both freshly prepared and dried animal protein sources to provide these important nutrients.
Grains are found in an abundance in dog foods, which lead to excessive consumption over the course of a dog’s life. Allergies to grain can develop immediately or after years of constant exposures.

If your dog is diagnosed with a grain allergy or intolerance, the treatment and the recovery process is luckily very straight forward - you just need to remove any foods, treats or flavoured medications that contain grains. Once this is done, the symptoms should subscribe and they should return to being healthy.
