"Your dog is on the right diet. Again. It's important to reiterate this supplementing Torian by itself with a unique diet doesn't necessarily reduce the risk of dilated cardiomyopathy. So I think the most important thing no is for the vast majority of dogs out there. We still haven't identified the exact cause of dilated cardiomyopathy when we're seeing it with these dogs being fed, a certain diet, that said, if you have a golden retriever or your dogs on a grain free diet, you're worried that one of the protein sources from unique type of protein, like lay gums are chick peas. You always want to consult with your veterinarian, I or again, even a board certified veterinary nutritionists to make sure we're minimizing the risk of diet associated DC on the FTA. And a lot of researchers are actually actively studying this. So we can try to find out what the causes. So we can save as many dogs as we can. Now, if your dog was just diagnosed with them, what should we do? You always. Wanna talk to vet about measuring Torian level. It's very easy to do. It's a blood test. Just warn you. It does take at least a week to get those results back. But it is important. Because if your dogs on one of these boots exotic grain free diets, or an unconventional diet like vegan or vegetarian diet. We wanna make sure that your dog does not have touring deficiency. If your dog is diagnosed with DCM m you definitely want to have an ultrasound of your dog's heart, and you wanna do this with a board certified veterinary cardiologists, if you live in the California area, please. No, there's an active research study going on at UC Davis that's going to investigate this, the important thing to know is you wanna monitor your dog if they're on one of these boutique exotic grain free diets, for any signs of heart disease, if they are slowing down there, coffin, they're not able to exercise run as well. They're fainting. If you notice any shortness of breath, they have blue gums the respiratory. A rate is greater than sixty breaths, per minute..

"Most of the time when I see a dog in congestive heart failure in the -mergency room, it's typically due to a disease called chronic Bobby the heart disease, or what we abbreviate CV HD, and this is usually CNN, smaller dogs, like cavalier, king Charles spaniels, miniature poodles, and other small breeds of dogs with this type of disease, the valves of the heart are too leaky. And so when I actually use my stethoscope to listen to your dog's heart, I'll hear an abnormally heart murmur, so instead of being clear Chris beat beat beat beat. It's more of a. This does need to be worked up entreated. And so I typically will recommend doing chest x rays and electrocardiogram and even an ultrasound of the heart, which is called an echocardiogram. It's actually estimated that about ten to fifteen percent of dogs out, there are going to develop some type of heart disease. And again, this is probably one of the top ten emergencies icy at the ER vet. More recently, there's a disease that's been actually linked with dilated cardiomyopathy or what we often call DC 'em now. D C M is a very uncommon type of heart disease. But we see it more commonly in certain breeds of dogs. So the top three that I actually see DCM in is actually, the Doberman Pinscher. But we can also see it in giant breed dogs. So sometimes great Danes Irish wolf hounds will rarely get it now about one to two years ago. There was a cardiologists at the school of veterinary medicine at university of California Davis, that was noticing that there were more more types of golden retrievers, that were presenting dilated cardiomyopathy. And this is extremely rare because it's not commonly seen in this breed. What exactly is dilated cardiomyopathy? Well, go kart him up. The is when the heart is too floppy. It becomes really dilated in the myocardium or the muscle. The heart doesn't contract well as a result, it becomes bigger and bigger, in the heart muscle becomes weaker and that actually results in thinning of the walls, this may actually result in a really flappy balloon like Oregon instead of a powerful muscular heart muscle. And as a result, the heart camp pump blood efficiently. This is going to result in blood backing up into the lungs and secondary. Congestive heart failure. It often results in heart arrhythmias. In other words, Admiral rhythms of the heart most. At the time when I diagnose dilated cardiomyopathy it seen in these large dogs, but dilated cardiomyopathy is unusual, because it doesn't typically cause a heart murmur, now, I mentioned before in small breeds of dogs, that end up getting chronic, valvular heart disease. They almost always have a heart murmur, I can here with my stethoscope. And again, that's because the valves of the heart are leaky. The frustrating thing with dilated cardiomyopathy is your dog could potentially have really severe heart disease. And we can't hear a murmur, with our stethoscope. And so it's often a lot harder to be able to detect and pick up on unfortunately DC 'em results in that heart chamber, dilation and the inability for the heart to contract. Well, in this can result in severe with me as an even sudden death in dogs now back in the nineteen seventies eighties and nineties veterinary cardiologists were seeing dogs, and even cats with dilated. Khartum up the in what they discovered was that it was oftentimes associated with torn deficiency. What exactly is touring? Well, it's an amino acid that pets get from eating meat, and this is one of the reasons why I'm never advocate for a cat or even a dog being on a vegan or vegetarian diet. And that's because Torey needs to be ingested in order to supplement the body with me, no acid. The good thing is, is soon as scientists discovered this, they adjusted commercial cat foods and dog foods to make sure there was appropriate levels of taurine in the food. And as a result DCM cats has almost completely disappeared. Well, unfortunately now we're seeing more and more DCM. And there seems to be a link with grain free diets again. This was first detected by Dr Josh stern, who's a cardiologists at UC Davis. What they were seeing a surge of golden retrie-. Rivers that were presenting with congestive heart failure and being diagnosed with C M, an taurine deficiency. And when the actually investigated it a lot of these dogs were uncertain diets, what they found.

And then when we look closely at the ingredients that were listed on the label for these products, many of them had these sort of exotic. Protein sources like alligator kangaroo. But they also lifted these legume or pope seed products ingredients such as peas, lentils chickpeas, and as well potatoes. So that's when we issued our warning in July.

When we see safety signals, get some more information, if there were other other animals out there other dogs that were being affected that had dilated cardiomyopathy and to to get more information as well.

"Don't worry. He's been fixed. Welcome back to Steve DALE'S, Pat. I tell you. I'm walking down the street and people stop me and ask me about this. Should I be grain free foods to my pets or not? Well, here's the person who knows about it. Because there was an alert that the food and Drug administration issued now several months ago, do we know more than we did Dr Martine harder. Genesis the deputy director of the office of surveillance and compliance at the center for veterinary medicine with the food and Drug administration. How are you? I'm great. Thank you. First of all explain what the alert is about regarding grain free diets several months ago, the FDA became aware of just a few complaints of dilated cardiomyopathy cardiomyopathy in dogs that were associated with these diets that were labeled Ed grain free. We really didn't have a large number of reports maybe about three. Thirty. But when we looked specifically at the diets that were reported to be have been fed. We did note that they were most of them were labeled as grain free. And then when we looked closely at the ingredients that were listed on the label for these products, many of them had these sort of exotic protein sources like alligator kangaroo, but they also listed these lagoon or post seed products ingredients such as peas, lentils chick peas, and as well as potatoes. So that's when we issued our warning in July. Really to one just, you know, make people aware of it because that's our job. It's our job to notify the public when we see safety signals also get some more information if there were other other animals out there other dogs that were being affected that had dilated cardiomyopathy and to to get more information as well. And since that Lert, we have a total probably about two hundred reports of dilated cardiomyopathy mostly involving dogs. We have a few cat reports. And so we're just right now, we're in the process of collecting all the information trying to tease it out. We have a vet learn system. It's a it's a network of veterinary diagnostic laboratories around the country. And we do have the capacity to get more information follow up on those reports interview owners, perhaps even get samples and. Work with their veterinary is to try and to further tease out this safety signal that that we're aware of now. So even before these diets came about these grain free diets, and by the way, dilated cardiomyopathy is kind of heart disease. You don't want your dog to have. So before these diets came out dobermans, great Danes, some other large breeds predisposed to this kind of heart disease. That is not what we're talking about. In fact, the whole point is now you're seeing other breeds or mixes getting this heart disease that seem to be breed specific previously. Yeah, that's correct. And so we do have a few reports involving these larger breeds that do have a genetic disposition for dilated cardiomyopathy. We have several reports involving golden retrievers, which we are now sort of looking at as potentially there may be some genetic component. Although we hadn't seen golden retrievers. Previously in the literature described as a breeds that are predisposed. But we're also seeing a lot of different breeds smaller. Breeds mixed breeds, just you know, really, no one other particular breed that you could point out as genetically predisposed. So we're trying to figure that one out right now as well. And we think there may be a dietary component there. So greenfee diets an interesting sort of thing that kind of happened. And that's exactly I think that's the right way to describe it. It's a thing that kind of happened by marketing folks, not by veterinary nutritionist to my knowledge, there's no study that has ever indicated grain free diets are bad. But there's no study that indicated we should do this. We should offer grain free diets. Am I correct about that? To the best of my knowledge. Yes, I think, you know, the the there were some concerns, perhaps, maybe allergies food allergies. People feel like they're doing the right thing. There's obesity concerns as well. They want think that grain free diets, maybe more healthy for their pets. So so I think that they're, you know, the the pet food market has really evolved quite a bit. And there are a lot of these niche necc- companies targeting these and marketing these products that are labelled.

"Dog's best friend and cats to welcome back to Steve DALE'S, Pat. This whole thing about grain free diets came up out of the blue actually so bring free diets thought to be good for our pets. Right. Well, maybe not so good are they causing heart disease and certain dogs. Maybe even some cats too. It's a complicated situation. So here's what the FDA began to notice, and they begin to hear from veterinarians the dogs specifically certain breeds that typically so dilated cardiomyopathy is a kind of heart disease that affects historically certain dog breeds very specific to certain dog breeds rarely could occur in any breeder mixed breeds. But generally specific breeds and veterinarians began the see this same kind of heart disease in other dogs. Other breeds and what they found and what the pieces as they put the puzzle together, they quickly realized that law. These dogs were on grain free diets now, that's all. All anyone knew. That's it. So is there really a relationship between grain free diets and this kind of heart disease in dogs. They can be so serious. I mean, the heart disease, you know, can be deadly. And and can develop entire failure. And at that point the dogs are in trouble. So this is not something you want your dog to get and presumably people feed grain free because it's better for the dog. Right. So is it really better for the dogs and is going to cause heart disease, and what is causing dilated cardiomyopathy, this kind of heart disease in dogs that typically historically have not had in very large numbers at all very very, very rare. It's still rare, but this kind of heart disease. Do you follow all of that? And I'm gonna make things a little more confusing yet. So the reason why the grain free diets came about was an initiative to say, all right? We have an alternative for dogs with allergies. But here's the truth about dogs with allergies. Most dogs with allergies in the first place are it's it's flea allergy Titus. It's due to fleas that is actually the most common cause of allergies in dogs. Number two on the list is at a p. So that's a fancy word for something in the environment. So just like you might have hayfever. Well, our dogs can be allergic to exactly the same thing. Something in the environment. Now, oftentimes dogs with allergies. Not the flea allergy part, but dogs that are allergic to something in the environment. It is thought just like people, you know, the moral allergies. A person has the more allergies. A person is likely to have. And it's the same perhaps, we don't know with our dogs. So some of those dogs might be more predisposed because their immune system isn't quite right to having allergies are the kind of allergies which could include food, allergies buffoon allergies are as you've noted here. If you're following that bouncing ball lower on the proverbial totem pole than the other kind of allergies mentioned, they're really kind of rare and when food allergies occur. Incidentally, what are the dogs allergic to they're allergic most often to a protein source so that can be allergic? Chicken they can be allergic to duck. They can be allergic to duck and chicken and Turkey, whatever the dogs are allergic to it's most often a protein, it can be a grain. But that's even more rare. So now, we're talking really really rare, but still grain free sounded good. There are to my knowledge. No studies published studies that demonstrate grain free has ever been better for dogs that they're going to live longer healthier lives or less likely to have allergies because they're on the grain free diet and most dogs that have the kind of allergies. I've described are on a prescription or therapeutic diet anyway, right? They are so grain free has become the sort of. It sounds good. It's a marketing term. But no one thought it could do any harm is doing any harm..

"And welcome back here live with Dr. Radio ask Dr Jeff. And as I mentioned before the great, we're gonna talk about something, very serious. I tried not to get too technical to scientific, but this one is very important to understand because I feel that if you understand something then you don't necessarily have to memorize it. Because you understand it. You get it. I tell that young doctors I tell that to students that don't ever try to memorize something. If you understand conceptually what it's all about. Then it makes sense, and you don't have to memorize so here's one we don't for years that there are an essential amino acid called taurine and cats cannot make their own Tory. So typically, we would see a disease in cats that was linked to taurine deficiency called DC that's dilated cardiomyopathy, and it can be deadly. And so it has been known at one of the reasons why so important, and we'd say cats have to be obligate carnivores cats need meat and fish. Why one of the reasons is is that meat and fish contain. Substantial amounts of Tori. And therefore since the cat can't make it on their own by feeding higher taurine levels. We will minimize or potentially prevent DCM in cats. So now toluene is one of four sulfur amino acids Sistine, okay? Methionine homeless his team and Tori cinema thiamine ones that are used to make proteins and they're very important. So they are ones that we get from food and with those we can make a lot of different different types of proteins. And there are central to be there. So what's happening is taurine is also sulfur amino acid, and it can be made from sixteen with which is why we talk about having the sulphur to make Solferino acids dogs that can do this make their own as long as as long as they have enough defining then they can make their own Tory, which they do. Okay. Very simple. So now, we're going to get to the bad part? Where the system assigning often come from. They come from grains, grains, have most I think all of acids in one form or another. And it's very important grains, have high levels of Matthias and low levels of lysine lysine is not involved in the production of story. So what are we seeing now with the increased popularity of grain free foods? We're seeing now cases in dogs up. DCM cardiomyopathy will use it. Wait a second. They make they make their own. They can get it from meat which they get in their diets, but they have to make it themselves using system Athenee. So what have these manufacturers these food companies port first of all people that were looking for grain free usually are looking at veggie diets. So basically by feeding vegetables and grains, you're eliminating the abilities the dog's ability to make Tori, so you could be the more meat. But what's happening is what are these companies doing to substance? The grain free when they're taking the grains out there. Putting something in are. They putting in more meat. No, they're not are they putting in more fish. No, they're not putting in leggings and soy. But guess what legs and soy have very low levels of refining. They have more licensing. So what's happening is by taking out, the grains, which are providing these great sulfur amino acids allowing the dog to make its own taurine and substituting this with leggings beans and peas and soy, which don't have high levels of assigning, and they're basically limiting the dog's ability by not giving them the building blocks in the foods. They're eating to make enough of their own Tory. So what's happening like cats now dogs with never had this problem because as a lot of meat and had a lot of grains are now not getting enough, meat or grains. They're not getting enough building blocks to make their own taurine. And we are seeing. DCM in dogs. So it's very important to understand. It's not that the grain free is bad. It's the fact that by substituting it with leggings and not more meat than that's the problem or or just adding more Matthias being said the diet to the gradient deck so as long as they got enough mining and they can make their own taurine. Everything's gonna be fine. But this is so new that a lot of these grain free foods out there that have not either substituted with meat or with just plano Matthias. If they're using to replace the grain, then your dog might have a problem with these. So very important, very important speech. You're veterinaran. I know a good friend of mine who makes actress is one of my favorite supplements is actually coming out with a taurine supplement for dogs. So if you shoes tape feed that veggie diet or that vegan diet or grain free diet that it will provide. The dog with enough of the building blocks or the Taurean itself to help prevent this cardiomyopathy this dotted hit of cardiomyopathy. So it's very very important to know about it talk to you veterinary read up on it. It's really I mean, we're getting alerts this is this was a shocker the veteran community as well. Because we didn't you know, up till now realize the importance of the games, and I will tell you something else, and you should check with your veterinarian about this. And you can check with the American college of dermatology. Dermatology. And that is that really to date. There have been no major tests done on grain allergies. And once again, it is the the pet parent attempts to anthropomorphized they want to avoid the grains, and the weeds and the gluten right because of whatever reason because everybody all of a sudden has, you know, she'll yak disease, and is allergic to gluten, but don't don't just because someone else had it doesn't mean you have it just because you have it. Doesn't make your dog is the same way. So that we are different organisms different needs, different, metabolism's, etc. And though you choose to eat that way. It's not necessarily that your dog has to eat that way. Now, if it's a philosophical issue. All right, then you need to learn more about what to feed and start making judgments in the diet to make sure that you're not hurting your dog by feeding him the weight you choose to eat. And it's very simple is I said, we're hearing more and more negatives about raw more more stories out there and now with these vegan and veggie ingrained freeze were also turning more issues. And I'll tell you that the only I would say the only, of course, any any individual dog can be allergic to any grain beat protein, source, etc. But the big ones that we see most allergies in from the meat side are going to be beef and poultry and from the side. It's going to be wheat and corn. And so if you want to. Avoid something avoid just those four to start. You wanna look for novel protein diet that doesn't have either beef poultry, wheat or corn? You can look for something like venison, if it's truly you're doing it because of a food allergy. But don't assume that because food allergies and grain can affect people. It's gonna affect your dog. There's really been very little proof that many of the other grains out there are causing allergic disease in God's so just the it's instinct, I was at a sort of an educational media seminar as I started working with one of the big food companies do helping them with their marketing and media and another veterinarian a colleague of mine who also does a lot of media, and we were brought on to sort of educate the masses disobedience of blogging, isn't news cases radio pieces etcetera. And they also there was a human while. She was obviously person her field was nutrition. But the human side, and why was she there? Are we humid attrition is there? The reason is because we all know that some of the buzzwords some of the things that you look for when you buy petfood for your pets. You are anthropomorphized. And so you're buying what you by yourself. And it was so interesting to hear and it's no secret the manufacturers. No it so much. So that they actually brought in a person who works with does the same thing with companies for human food. So it's very important to tread lightly. Do some homework talk to your veterinarian. And if you want to go into this little bit with more with me, please do to get a hold of me. And Dr Jeff it felt like radio dot com, but just dump and by for your dog or you think is good for your dog. Because you believe in it or it's good for you as well. All right.

"Bag so it can pick up after itself here's Steve Dale I. Is a point of information there's the food and Drug administration the United, States food and Drug administration that we all know about I, think and there's a within. That organization there are a group that's called the center for veterinary medicine. And they issued. I'm, going to read, it. Work per word, because I don't want to get it wrong we are concerned about, reports of heart disease known as dilated cardiomyopathy in dogs that ate certain pet foods containing peas lentils other legumes or potatoes as their main ingredient, so, I'm, going to stop here, just for. A moment, to make a point of saying I believe I'm. Not certain but I believe this is just with foods that have those items as the main ingredient so if you read the Ingredient list on the pet food package. Look at, your dog or cat food now, this is just for dogs but what what they have in, common is the. List of ingredients is listed in the order of which there is the most so if. Chicken there is the most of that's number one if it's beef that is number one whatever is at the top, and then when, you get down you read I. Don't know you read long names like with our own food that I don't even understand, what those things mean to, vitamin b. or vitamin c. or something else that's further down on the list okay let. Me pick it up here These reports are highly unusual as they are occurring, in breeds not, typically genetically prone to, this disease said Martine heart. Of who's a veterinarian and deputy, director of, the FDA center. For veterinary medicine office of surveillance and compliance the FDA is investigating the potential link between dilated cardiomyopathy and these foods we encourage pet owners and veterinarians to report cases of dilated cardiomyopathy. In. Dogs not predisposed to this disease Now on my blog I have a link by the way and you can go directly. There now let me continue a genetic predisposition to dilated cardiomyopathy is typically seen in large and giant, breed, dogs like great, Danes Newfoundland's Irish Wolfman Saint bernards and Doberman pinschers the diseases less common. And small, and medium breed dogs except American and English cocker. Spaniels however recently reported atypical cases have included labrador golden retrievers are whippet a- Shitzu a bulldog miniature schnauzers as well as many mixed breed dogs early reports from the veterinary cardiology community indicate that the impact the dogs consistently. Ate foods containing peas lentils and other legumes seeds or potatoes as the. Main ingredient in their primary source of nutrition so here's here's something I've been, talking about a longtime I Could. Not have predicted what I just read and. I know the FDA would be the first to say we need to understand exactly what's going on here. But when you see terms like all natural or it's fine that you know dogs like sweet. Potatoes it's good for, them as it is for us but every day if we only had. Sweet, potato is the. Primary ingredient I'm not sure how good for us that would be not a dietitian I don't know. But I do, know what I just read and it is disconcerting and by the way that specific, type of heart disease in dogs. Typically, is genetic and often breed specific and what the FDA again is saying we're seeing and all these dogs that we typically wouldn't see. It in so do talk to your veterinarian about that if you're concerned and also about the type, of, and specific pet, food that you purchase for your dog I do believe that every veterinary. Visit and, we talked about this on the show with. CARA Burns the couple of weeks ago every. Veterinary visit you should discuss.
