We're finding that out now as the FDA is investigating many cases of DCM in breeds not typically diagnosed with DCM that are improving or even reversing after being switched off those foods. While Dobermans are genetically predisposed to DCM, I personally feel much more comfortable feeding a food that has a huge team of nutritionists and extensive feeding trials, as well as knowing that many many people have fed it for years and have had dogs live long lives on it.

That's my PERSONAL feeling. Others may feel differently, and that's okay.
Yeah MC... That is exactly why switched McCoy to Pro Plan. Although the tally is not in, why not? Plus, McCoy will eat anything and seems to do well. The transition from Acana to Pro Plan was nothing.
