Diet-Associated DCM with Dr. Pierce
Kursten Pierce, DVM, DACVIM (Cardiology), Colorado State University
In this episode, host Beckie Mossor, RVT, talks with Kursten Pierce, DVM, DACVIM (Cardiology), about her recent Clinician’s Brief article, “Respiratory Distress & Inappetence in a Border Collie.” Following a discussion on the connection between dilated cardiomyopathy and BEG (boutique, exotic-ingredient, and grain-free) diets, Dr. Pierce overviews the recent FDA announcement and the kind of research the FDA conducts when they are alerted to a possible health concern. She also shares which grain-free pet foods are not included in these concerns and whether patients diagnosed with diet-associated DCM will have lifelong effects. Hear all this and more on this week’s episode.
