Re: Grain free

The link to the cardio group on facebook is very informative and I do belong to that group. However they advise getting off of grain free food and this group advises to stay on it. Confuses a person even more.

Re: Grain free

Thank you for the replies. My girl has been on Fromm Salmon Tunelini grain free for 3 years and has been very stable. She gets 3/4 tsp of enzymes with each meal. She has been very healthy and seems to thrive on her current food. I had just heard so much controversy that it was concerning me. This fo...

Re: Grain free

I will ask my vet this and see what he says. I do supplement with a sardine everyday to add some Taurine..don't know if that's enough ...

Re: Grain free

I have not tried feeding grains much after being on grain free. However I do give her snacks as bait for showing her and she has no problems with them. I have started mixing a little grain inclusive food in her grain free for the last couple of days to see what happens and so far she is doing fine.

Grain free

I had posted awhile ago about grain free food and heart problems...I have been hearing more and more about the grain free and it scares me. Some vets are saying to get off of the grain free. What does a person do? My girl has been very stable since she was first diagnosed with epi. She also is a sho...

Re: Grain free food and heart problems

Thank you for info on the grain free and cdm. I had a conversation with Fromm yesterday on their grain free food. I really hate to give it up as my girl has been doing so well on it. Fromm does supplement with Taurine and their foods contain ample levels of cysteine and methionine which dogs use to ...

I feed Fromm Salmon Tunelini which is grain free and my girl does very well on this. I do add a sardine everyday and sometime...
