Been away from here for a while but came on after hearing about this issue.

Is it causing anyone here to move away from Grain Free food or rethink the brand they feed? My eldest was fed Grain Free until she passed away last year and my GSD is currently fed on it too.

It's a bit close to home because i come from a family with hereditary cardiomyopathy issues, myself included. I know in people 80-90% of cases are inherited, and i'd assume it would be the case in dogs too. I was a little surprised to see it could be caused by diet.

When they mention dogs 'pre disposed' in these reports does anyone know if they're actually looking at the parentage of the dogs that have cardiomyopathy issues or if they're just referring to certain breeds that the problem is more common in.

It will be interesting to see when some data related to the UK comes out.
