  1. Victor Nutra Pro - Issues, switch to Canidae? ProPlan? What to do...

    Dog Food Forum
    None with DCM though, that's important, at least at this point. I do agree with your overall conclusion that we don't have enough data and I am also in agreement that its likely legumes causing the issue, but that's simply based on what I know about human digestion and K9s are not humans. So...

    The spreadsheets that I saw had 0 incidents of Victor Nutra Pro and Purina Pro Plan with DCM. Several animals tested all negative. If you have newer data I'd like to see it.

    We are phasing out Acana due to DCM concerns despite our dog loving it and her seemingly doing well on it, coat, poops, energy, etc were all good. We have switched to primary food being Victor Nutra Pro, which seemingly is good food, but our little girl isn't doing as good on it. She's a 1...

    Hmm that's a good idea. I really prefer to buy in bulk to save $ but have heard you have to use dog food within 6 weeks of opening the bag due to repeated exposure to light and oxygen. I wonder if this would help stretch that.

    WTF, I store in a dark container but assumed it was repeated exposure to light that was a problem...

    Can you explain that? We keep our food in a Rubbermaid container and have for 12 years. Are you saying that's bad?

    Weird, it was working fine for me earlier and now it's not, I removed it just to be safe. Basically its the updated sample set/table posted in the DCM Facebook group. Shows dogs with taurine levels and their diets. Interesting stuff, while not conclusive, was a fairly signifiant dataset...

    Just found Victor on Chewy! Fair amount of grains but not lentils or peas. Might mix it with Orijen or Acana or something to keep meat content high. I assume this is the one? https://www.chewy.com/victor-select-nutra-pro-active-dog/dp/129281

    Picked up some Fromm today and literally a buddy of mine sends me a reply to the text telling me that Fromm is suspected in some of the DCM cases? Also, trying to avoid lentils/legumes/peas is tough since a lot of the higher meat foods like Orijen and Acana have those ingredients. We started...
  13. It’s Not Just Grain-Free: An Update on Diet-Associated Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    I also looked at farmina and that takes our monthly dog food bill to $140 which is ridiculous, especially in light of how much crap I get for spending $80-85 now.

    I am feeding acana at the moment. Any alternatives you would recommend?

    I am likely to move my pup to a mix of Canidae with some grains and various grain free from orijen, acana, canidea
