Grain Free and DCM

There is an article in the New York Times about the possible link between grain free diets that are heavy in legumes and DCM in breeds that do not have a genetic predisposition to DCM.

Link https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/24/h...t-disease.html


Loki started on grain free from the breeder, but since he seems to like anything that resembles food (Even romaine lettuce ) think we will be switching to the regular version of the large-breed puppy.

That's already been discussed here https://www.dobermantalk.com/doberma...1-taurine.html and here https://www.dobermantalk.com/doberma...a-warning.html

DCM in Dobermans is known to have a genetic link. The dogs in these articles are from breeds that do not have a known genetic link to DCM.
