Cardiomyopathy associated with boutique, exotic-ingredient, or grain-free diets
In 2018, the FDA announced concerns for a relationship between cardiomyopathy and grain-free diets in dogs, which has led to widespread concern and confusion among the veterinary community and dog owners. This session traces the roots of this issue and provides an evidence-based update of our current understanding and best practices.
The IVMA has applied for 3 hours of CE for this webinar.
