Nutritionally-Mediated DCM in Dogs

Free Webinar brought to you by Hill’s Pet Nutrition USA – Clinical Series

Dr. Michelle Rose

Who is it for?
Start Date
December 10, 2019


By now, most veterinary professionals understand that there’s a link between BEG diets and atypical dog breeds developing dilated cardiomyopathy. To that end, how do we diagnose these patients, and even more importantly, follow up on them? This lecture will provide a cardiologist’s perspective on this issue, discuss the patient population at risk, and go over the FDA update.

After participating in this session, attendees will:
  • Be familiar with taurine’s role in nutritionally-mediated DCM.
  • Understand which screening and diagnostic tests are recommended.
  • Have a treatment and follow up plan for dogs affected by nutritional cardiomyopathy.
