USA a lot of brands large and small have increasingly added legumes (peas, lentils,etc) over the years
It’s a binder and protein booster combined and straight up bad news

I don’t rotate foods because there are so few that meet my criteria and needs
Right now there is one food I’ve found in the USA I’m willing to feed
One

I also think NDCM is very under diagnosed even here in USA
Most people when told their dogs have a bad heart just accept it and the dog lives out it’s life on medication
Very few would end up seeing a cardiologist

Also, there seems to be 3 main things that the DCM cases seem to have in common.

- The dogs were fed the same kibble every single day, for every single meal. No rotating through other brands.

- They were fed, sometime drastically, under the recommended feeding guidelines on the bag.

- They were were fed very little, or none at all, fresh animal proteins, eg meat/offal/fish/eggs etc

...
Honestly I don’t think any of those have anything to do with it

The vast majority of USA dog owners who feed kibble never rotate brands, never add extras and rarely feed bag suggestions (since most bags suggest far too much)

And
Only dogs affected are those who’ve been fed foods containing legumes (93+%) or foods that either had potato as the#1 ingredient or coupled with legumes(42%)
