|olivebeingavizsla||What did you switch to? My first V had a ton of skin issues with chicken so we've been avoiding that, and Olive was not a fan of Hill's Science Diet when she was a puppy so we've been on Zignature for a over a year and a half and have been happy with it. I want to switch but am hesitant to do so.|

|Odin's mom||We had our Odin on Merrick. My husband, who is a human cardiologist/scientist, read the FDA papers and had me toss out all of our feed, like hundreds of $$ worth. He admits that he might be overreacting but he thinks the he doesn't want to take any risk...|

|2RedDawgs||Thanks! Contemplating the Sports version of the Pro products; they stay active almost all day either with walks with us or "hunting" critters in our fenced backyard.....|

The old tried, and true Purina Pro Plan.

Routine immunization vet visit for Scarlett & Boomer this am. The vet staff encouraged us to move away from the grain free food. We've been feeding our two Orijen Original and Six Fish. They've been fine with this. I've spent some time today reviewing the information and an email with links our vet provided. I've also read Orijen's (Champion) press release and naturally they provide a reasonable explanation of their products. Just purchased a new supply of the original and will use it; will do some additional research.
Curious...Texas Red, you mentioned neither of yours are on grain free. What product(s) do you use?

I think there are more cases out there, IF this is really the cause. Not every dog is going to see a cardiologist, or have a autopsy done.
But still there is a big IF.
Second the UK has no cases reported.
They have a higher mandated taurine levels in their dog foods, than the US.
Still leaves me wondering if there is a different cause, or if just upping the taurine levels is the answer.
Neither of my dogs are on grainfree.
Maybe that's one reason, the wait and see approach is easier for me.

the FDA publication itself, seems a bit more sophisticated and discussing several layers, like nutrition sourcing itself as a possibility. also gives more information about breeds reported.

sending all the ESP for June lady. and yes, science constantly evolves, really who knows.
also... i know dogs who get a piece of fatty cheese in between competition numbers to keep up energy and they thrive on it. and then again the other extreme where lactose intolerance is so prevalent that u cannot even risk using the same knife cutting stuff as the dog would get bad diarrhea otherwise.

I'm sure as time progresses, we will get more information.
Years ago millions of babies took baby aspirin. Now we know not to give it to them.
On a sidenote.
At almost 9 1/2 years old, June now has a grade 1 heart murmur. Nothing to be concerned about at this point. Just something to keep a eye on at vet checks.
