Dr. Roger and Dr. Karen discuss a recent investigation launched by the FDA (prompted by a group of veterinary cardiologists) regarding a troublingly credible link between the deadly heart disease in dogs, dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), and the feeding of grain free dog food.  Our veterinary co-hosts also delve into the deceptive marketing engaged in by grain free pet food manufacturers to attract customers, other health problems they have observed arise from the feeding of grain free pet foods, and general insights into the pet food industry as a whole that most consumers are unaware of.
