I took pictures because there was too much information. You can see the formulas on the right. The ones in yellow mean taurine levels were low. You can see in the column next to that whether they had an echocardiogram and what those results were. Hope this helps! Also, there is one dog on there fed Barking at the Moon who was got a very low taurine result but it doesn't look like an echo was done yet.

For those of you who have adopted a wait and see attitude: I urge you to at least see if the formula you're feeding has any dogs with diet-induced DCM.

Lots of great info added to this thread, thanks Ruth for posting some of that, I meant to, but didn't back to the forum. I think if a food is questionable, it's a safer bet to move away from it, unless there are compelling reasons not to.

I ended up switching my pups to Victors. I know this is all new but I didn't want to take any chances.

As an after thought, since I know that a lot of GSDs are picky about their food and switching is not all that easy, taurine can be added to any diet, check the ingredient list and if it's not there, you can add some. I used to add some to indy's diet due to her heart disease.

Rosa, I hope that the new food works out!
