Diet-associated DCM (Part 2): Answering owners' questions and making nutritional recommendations
With the increase in the number of diet-associated dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) cases being diagnosed, clinicians are having to answer more questions about which diets are implicated, what diets should be fed, and the many pet nutrition myths (eg, allergies, grain-free, gluten-free, exotic ingredient, etc). This talk will provide information on the most common types of diets associated with the current DCM issue, what diets to recommend, and how to combat the proliferation of misinformation about pet nutrition.
Describe how to answer common owner questions about nutritional factors associated with diet-associated DCM.
List possible dietary changes and other steps to take if a dog with diet-associated DCM is identified.
List common pet nutrition myths related to diet-associated DCM and possible responses to owner questions.
