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.
