My cavalier with CHF, enlarged heart & ruptured heart string was on this, by my own want not the vets. Surely veterinary professionals liase with RC about specific cardiac issues in this breed before just churning out a marketing ploy. Too much meat is bad for the heart

Was under a cardiologist who never pushed this on me
