If a pet has DCM, they should follow the advice of their veterinarian. Since there has been no official word yet from the FDA as to their findings on what is actually causing DCM, and no guidance given to pet food manufacturers, we would confidently recommend any of our dog food recipes, grain free or with healthy grains, to anyone interested in our natural food. Note, we do add additional taurine to our grain-free recipes. pawTree cares about our pets and will comply with the FDA's findings once they make them available.
