Just back from the North American Veterinary Conference in his first episode in 2022, Dr. Roger reports on the latest AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association) and FDA (Food and Drug Administration) updates on the grain free diets linked to the deadly heart disease in dogs, Dilated Cardiomyopathy.  As it turns out, the story is becoming increasingly complex with not just grain free diets implicated, but now expanded into what the AVMA is calling BEG diets.  BEG stands for Boutique style, Exotic proteins and ingredients, and Grain free.  Tune in as Dr. Roger kicks off the New Year's first episode sorting through all of this information for you to help keep your dogs safe.
