FDA has investigated more than 500 cases of dilated cardiomyopathy in dogs and has identified 16 brands of dog food which had the most frequent reported cases. The top three brands, according to the FDA, are Acana, named in 67 reports; Zignature, named in 64, and Taste of the Wild, named in 53 reports. 'We know it can be devastating to suddenly learn that your previously healthy pet has a potentially life-threatening disease. FDA is committed to continuing our collaborative scientific investigation into links between DCM and certain pet foods,' said Dr. Steven M. Solomon, director, FDA  Center for Veterinary Medicine. If DCM is caught early, heart function improves in cases not linked to genetics with veterinary treatment and dietary modification, according to the FDA.

What a travesty! More dogs are dying every day from Roundup in their food, especially in the oats and wheat that get mixed in, and there is plenty of Roundup in almost all chicken products in America.


If FDA ever did serious studies on that level of dying dogs and people, free from industry manipulated research, Americans would see that the number of canine deaths far exceeded these from enlarged hearts.

I agree that Roundup/Glyphosate contamination is a BIG problem with today's food, for both humans and animals!

Taurine is an important heart supportive element that our dogs and cats need.

Problem is, that Taurine is volatile and heat sensitive. Since Pet Food is cooked under extreme pressure at temperatures exceeding 400 degrees for extended periods very little in the way of nutrients can and do survive.

This is why you see added vitamins and a few other nutrients being added by the pet food manufacturers.

The problem with these added nutrients, is that they are synthetic based nutrients and synthetic based nutrients are very poorly bio-available and sometimes even toxic.

Add to that, that most pet food manufacturers start with canine and feline (carnivore) inappropriate ingredients, and add to that the fact that even many/most of the meat based ingredients are of questionable quality and you can see why chronic diseases are running rampant in our pets- JUST LIKE THEY ARE IN HUMAN FOOD RESULTING IN RAMPANT CHRONIC DISEASE IN HUMANS TOO!!
