All smiles this Monday morning after my echocardiogram. 😃👍 . 🚩Do I have your attention? Good, because I have a very important message to share, especially with my GOLDEN RETRIEVER friends. Recent studies have shown a correlation between a grain-free diet and reduced taurine levels which may lead to dilated cardiomyopathy in dogs. #taurinedeficiency #goldenretrievers . I have always fed Maui (and my other dogs) a high-quality grain-free diet. After learning about this issue, I had her tested a few weeks ago, and received the results Friday evening. I was shocked to learn that her whole blood level was 205 which is borderline low. I was scared and sad and spent the weekend wondering if her heart was OK. She had an echocardiogram this morning which revealed that her heart function is 100% normal. ❤️❤️❤️ With dietary changes, and a taurine supplement for the next several months until we bring her levels back up into the normal range, there should be no long-term effect or problems. Maui is one of the lucky ones, but many others have not been so lucky, and the stories we have read are heartbreaking.😢 . If you think it can't happen to you, you're wrong. I didn't think it could happen to us because Maui is a 3 1/2 year old, otherwise healthy, active golden retriever who participates in agility and who ate high-quality food. If you have been feeding a grain-free diet, please rethink it, get your dog tested, and do the research. See link above in bio to help get started. There is a Facebook group, Taurine Deficiency in Golden Retrievers, with lots of information. . Please share with all of your friends. 💛🐾 . . . #goldenretriever #goldens #goldensofinstagram #golden_retriever #goldenlovers #instagolden #instagoldens #golden_feature #golden_retriever #goldenretrieversworld #golden_retrievers123 #goldenretrieverlovers #goldenfluffypack #goldenpupsquadfeature #goldenretrieverfeatures #goldenoftheday #goldenretrieverlove #goldensarethebest #ilovemygolden #retrievers #retrieversgram #retrieverstagram #retrieverlifemagazine #goldenretrieverphotos #goldenpuppy #goldenretriever_pictures #goldenretrieverdaily

Bientôt 2 ans que tu es dans ma vie. Bientôt 2 ans que tu as tout chamboulé. Qui aurait crus que la simple présence d’un chien pouvait tout changer. Je te remercierais jamais assez pour tout ce que tu m’apporte Neïko. Je t’aime plus que tout, tu es loin d’être le plus parfait des toutous c’est vrai et tu as énormément de défauts mais je t’aime pour ça. Bientôt 2 ans que j’essaye de te rendre tout l’amour que tu nous porte. #dogs #goldenretriever #pyreneanmountaindog #dogphotography #dogslover #instadog
