Dr. Kelly Diehl, Morris Animal Foundation

Dr. Kelly Diehl of the Morris Animal Foundation visits with us about once-a-month. She is a vet and scientist who helps decide what animal medical studies receive funding.

This week’s topics include:

Vegetarian dog food “is becoming a big problem.” We talk about how alternative diets can hurt dogs — including heart disease and grain-free diets. Taurine discussion and the importance of the amino acid that saves animals’ lives.

Here’s a link to an FDA update on cardiac issues suffered by some dogs on grain-free diets.

How changes in the biome — gut bacteria — can hurt or benefit health.

Worth a listen!
