Speaker: Julie Churchill, DVM, PhD, Diplomate DACVN
Confusion abounds and the controversy remains about the association between diet and dilated cardiomyopathy. There are denyers- who say this is a conspiracy and it’s not real (fake news), GFD have been around for ages, those who propose all commercial foods are terrible nutrition, and everything between. Clients don’t know where to turn for answers. This discussion will present updates about what we know regarding diet-associated DCM and help answer questions for pet owners.

Speaker: Jennifer Radosevich, PhD
Veterinary cardiologists have observed a concerning increase in the number and variety of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) cases, including in younger dogs and atypical breeds. Although genetic mutations associated with DCM have been discovered in some dog breeds, many more likely exist. Because researchers at Hill’s Pet Nutrition have previously utilized genomics approaches to understand gene-nutrient interactions, Hill’s and Embark Veterinary have launched a partnership to recruit 1000 dogs diagnosed with DCM in the largest study of its kind to date. The study will aim to determine possible links between DCM and several factors (eg, spay/neuter status, medical history, medications, food choice). Future results could lead to an understanding of the links between food choices and development of DCM, genetic tests for identifying dogs at risk of developing DCM, and new solutions to support recovery of affected pets, all of which may have a positive impact on the health of dogs.
