We're passing on an important warning about a connection found between various pet food brands and DCM as reported by HealthDay News.

"THURSDAY, June 27, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- More than 500 reports of heart disease in dogs and cats linked to some pet foods have been confirmed, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Thursday.

The cases of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) -- 515 in dogs and nine in cats -- were logged between January 2014 and April 2019. Some of the reports involved more than one pet in a household, so the total number of pets affected is likely higher, the agency added".

I'd be happy to discuss this, or any questions you might have about your pet's health!
